Don has sold a LOT of cartoons in his career. Each numbered cartoon or illustration on the left side of this Blog is from a DIFFERENT magazine, newspaper, etc. Let's see if we can find out the total number of publications (places) where Don's work has appeared . . . . . (An unnumbered posting is a duplicate publication.)

59. Ace Books: The Official Name Callers' Handbook

In post # 22 , Pyramid Books, publisher of 101 Pickle Jokes, we mentioned that Don had done some 35 joke books. Here's another one although strickly speaking it's not just jokes. Yeah, right! It was published by Ace Books in 1981.

There is no way to do this handbook justice with a mere description. If you can get hold of a copy, you'll just have to see for yourself. The "parts" from the Table of Contents will give you an idea of what you're in for. Of course, the drawings are worth it!

Part 1 Theory: How to be a name caller
Part 2 Practice: Name callers' games and puzzles
Part 3 Fieldwork: Exploring the sordid world of Dingelberry Junior High School
Part 4 You can have a career in name-calling
Part 5 Every insulting name in the book
