How Old ?

Brother Theophyle is reading a newspaper. He says to Rabbit, “Here's a news item about a fellow who died at 105 years of age. Wow! That's old.”

Rabbit replies, “You're right. One hundred and five years is a long life for a human body.”

In the next panel, Rabbit asks, “Does it say there how old he was when it was born?”

Rabbit's question puts consternation on Theo's face.

A squirrel sitting nearby comments to another squirrel, sitting next to him, “Will you look at the bewilderment on Theo's face!”

The latter responds, “Poor lad, Rabbit's got him positively flummoxed.”
