Funny animal comics, or humor comics for that matter, were almost never signed unless the artist decided to, like here where it's drawn by Lynn Karp.
Nobody ever read the text pieces. I have hundreds of golden age comics, some of which I've had for over 30 years, and have never once read any of the text pieces. The only reason they were ever there in the first place was to qualify for a cheaper mail rate. I never include them when I post them, but in this case I'll make an exception since the text pieces in this issue had headers drawn by Frank Frazetta.

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
