Dr. Seuss and Flit: "Niblick in the Mosquito Hole"

Call me stupid for not knowing what a "niblick" was, but I suspect it's a term that isn't exactly common these days. I mean, sure, golfers are willing to wear ugly sweaters and "get exercise" by riding around in little motorized carts, but to say "niblick" would be plain silly.

I'm just happy that this particular Dr. Seuss cartoon -- from August 3, 1929 -- is refreshingly free of ethnic stereotypes.
