Some of Mort Walker’s best ideas come from personal experience, as in the strip above. When Mort first joined the Army he saw a bulletin announcing that there were ten openings for Officers’ School. “I asked permission to take the test,” Mort recounted. “My sergeant thought it was humorous that a mere private should have such lofty ambitions. When his laughter subsided he gave me permission. Four hundred applicants showed up for the test. I took one look and recognized a test I had taken before. I breezed through it and was on the train for O.C.S. that night.”
Here are two more classic Beetle Bailey episodes from the same year.
