Uncle Funny Bunny and Chumpy

I must respectfully disagree with cartoon historian Jerry Beck:

Jack Pierce's "Uncle Funny Bunny and Chumpy" is hardly the worst comic strip ever made.

The name alone is fucking inspired.

"Uncle Funny Bunny" would've been ample. "Chumpy" would've been perfectly sound. But Pierce saw fit to offer us *both* Uncle Funny Bunny AND Chumpy. In one strip. This was nothing short of revolutionary in its day.

There are comic strips far, far more deserving of the Worst Comic Strip Ever Stamp. Now testify.
