Funky Winkerbean: How do we know for sure that clams are happy?

This comic is hilarious because the guy with the beard has misunderstood the origin of the phrase "happy as a clam" to be about the clam's feelings, when it is in fact about the clam's appearance.


  1. Actually I'm pretty sure it's a shortening of "happy as a clam at high tide," when they're then safe from predators. But it's still stupid because Funky and whatshisface are stupid.

  2. Well, OK then. Probably should have looked that one up. Apparently I'm as stupid as Funky and Beardo here.
