secretary complains about not getting spanked

posted by the Web-Ed on 03/12/2010

For the 7th entry in this series, we have a switch: a secretary who complains to her boss about not getting spanked! She has a pretty good argument, too - all the other girls (Harriet, Rosalie, and Margaret) get spanked (must be a big office), so why should she be left out? The way she's standing right next to him, bending at the waist, looks as though she's trying to provoke him into taking her over his knee right then and there. If we were that boss, we'd waste no time in doing just that - after all, we wouldn't want her to feel left out.

The way Kirk Stiles has drawn the expression on the boss's face, we'd say he's getting the same idea, and is pleased with it. Stiles here draws his characteristic female - sharp-angled face, generously-curved figure, provocative position. It is interesting to compare Stiles in this respect with Bill Wenzel, Dan DeCarlo, and Homer, which we'll continue to do as we feature some more cartoons of all four men. Homer draws slender women with sharp angles to achieve an elegant, classy appearance; Wenzel draws his women with all curves and no angles, which allows them to be a trifle overweight and still very attractive; Stiles, although he occasionally draws big thighs, usually puts the curves in just the right places, which combined with the sharp facial features probably results in the most idealized (and least realistic) women.

We found this cartoon in the June 1963 issue of Laugh Digest but believe this to be its second printing. It probably first appeared in 1955 or '56.
