126 pages. This little book takes its title from a daily feature which appeared in the Montreal Gazette. The artist depicts a fair cross-section of the life of any big city. His characters are nameless, ordinary people going about the exhausting business of living. The daily aggravations of crowded street cars, jostling pedestrians, rude motorists, sardine housing, and assorted tribulations only affect Moore's funny bone. Author is a Toronto native who moved to Montreal at an early age. Book is well-used with above average wear and soiling but remains intact... and enjoyable. Illustration upon front cover shows three fellows leering at a passing beauty.
