Jetzeppa Landingear Returns!


Yes, it's another silly persona adopted by G.Ailard S. Artain.  Wouldn't you love to be a Royal Undergrounder?

If anybody out there answered the call, I'd love to hear from them!

And, yes, for some reason Mazeppa loved to mispronounce the name of our fair Bartlesville as "Bart-lets-ville."  Whether he was referring to Bartlett Pears or something else ... who knows?

See you on Thursday for my full-color scan of the tiny green image above!

I have a speculation about this.

"The FBI" TV series once aired an episode set in "Bart-lets-ville", Oklahoma. This would have been around 1968 when the OK governor was Dewey Bartlett (father of Dewey Bartlett, Jr., Tulsa mayor, circa 2010).

Maybe Mazeppa caught this episode and it stuck in his mind the same way it stuck in mine.

Another silly Mazeppa pronunciation was "Sapp-uh-LOO-puh."

And "Boak-a-CHEAT-a" (Bokchito, Oklahoma)
