Foolish Questions and Other Odd Observations is a compilation of the Rube Goldberg panels from the Sunday Chicago Tribune. Foreword by Rube Goldberg's granddaughter, Jennifer George and introduction by Paul Tumey of Sunday Press.
Before his incredible inventions captivated the world, Rube Goldberg was one of the most popular comic strip artists in America. Here is the full Sunday-page run of his first hit comic, Foolish Questions, as expanded and colorized for the pages of the Sunday Chicago Tribune, 1909-1910. This comic strip spawned several reprint books and inspired games, postcards, copycat comic strips, and got readers to start ridiculing the "foolish questions" in their own lives. Also included is a brain-scrambling assortment of the other panels from his daily comics series that originated the wise-cracking Foolish Questions classic. Most are printed for the first time in 100 years.
So here's your chance to enjoy the wild, inventive, and politically incorrect humor of the inimitable Rube Goldberg.
