Honestly, you have the body of a 60-year-old strip…

Happy ninetieth anniversary to the daily panel strip Ripley’s Believe It or Not (or as it’s referred to around Rancho Yesteryear—“Believe It or Don’t!”):

Or, as MAD magazine put it in 1958 - in a parody written by Ernie Kovacs - "Strangely Believe It!"

Thanks for providing the piece of the missing puzzle -- I knew Kovacs did a parody of it, but I couldn't remember whether it was on his show or in the pages of MAD.

Of course, I have the MAD DVD-Rom here at my computer...I guess I was too lazy to look for it.
