You’ve had a couple of references to Smoky Stover & the deathless question, “Nov Schmoz ka pop?”, which I remember from my childhood. I’m also a lifelong fan of Mr. (“Don’t mean sheet”)Natural, and had never made a connection between the two. Where can I see one of the old comic strips that contain Nov Schmoz ka pop? Are there books of collected Smoky Stover that would have it?

Daniel replies:

Anybody know? I'm not certain that it's a Smokey Stover reference. The character who held up the ""Nov Shmoz Kapop?"" sign may have appeared in early Popeyes. I think this received learned comment in this forum some years ago. Someone read all the archives!
