RUBE GOLDBERG's Inventions

Rube Goldberg did the Sunday page Side Show for a newspaper syndicate from 1938 to 1941. Each week, along with the title strip gags, he did a poetry corner called "Twisted Tales" and a sitcom strip called "Brad and Dad." And a weekly invention, like those shown here. I found these on comicbookplus, as reprinted in early issues of Crack Comics. I'm sure some of you tool jockeys will be rushing to your workshops to bring them to life.

Plenty of employment opportunities for midgets here.

Tsk, tsk. MIDGETS is not PC. You have to say DWARVES. Too bad nobody told Rube.

Midgets and dwarves are not the same thing, in point of fact, and Rube specifies midgets. I'm not PC so it's all jake with me.
