Cartoonish Coincidence

Anonymous: Bitter? Um, no; either I di'n't write goodly, or you misread me. The multiple appearances of a gag are all just an extra level of funny to me. I used to collect copies of daily comics when they'd hit the same joke on the same day, apparently without looking at each others' homework. :)

As Stilton said, it's just hitting on similar themes, and this is just hunting in the same pastures.

I should add, amateurs like me may luck out and bag an occasional quail. Stilton brings down the turkeys every day.
