Weird Art Attack

I felt inclined to point out that I really did know what I was talking about a couple of days ago with the parrot, then I noticed the bizarre art in this strip. Either Ziggy's some sort of Stretch Armstrong or his legs have been extended by two feet or more. Either way this strip brings up two unpleasant observations:

1) Ziggy may have knees. The people of the world have seen Ziggy's ankles for so long, and, having negotiated with the creator of this feature that the area under Ziggy's many one-color long-sleeved shirts is Off Limits, we're not used to thinking about it. By the looks of this strip, Ziggy's knees bend about one foot off of the ground and the rest is all thigh.

2) His Ziggy Jr. may be hanging out. The less said about this, the better. Drawing attention to what appears to be his dog's talking butt would have shown more propriety.
