The metacartoonist reaches into the vast storehouse of our common Angloamerican heritage and pulls out Gilbert and Sullivan and Oz, oh my! Gilbert and Sullivan and Oz, oh my! *ahem* The metacartoonist reaches into the vast storehouse of our common heritage, as I was saying, thus illuminating the cognitive/artistic/symbolic medium with a panoply of semiotic allusive constructs, each hand-picked at the height of its freshness and lovingly arranged within the now-traditional Pokey the Penguin panel layout.

The script used to make this toon:
<cartoon height="500" width="800" rowformat="1">
<character name="dot"/>
<character name="lenin"/>
<caption location="top middle" fgcolor="red" font="courbi">DOT, I'M FEELING FINE TODAY<br/>HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY!!!!!!</caption>
<caption location="top left" fgcolor="blue" font="courbi">YES!!!  I THINK I DO AGREE!!</caption>
<caption location="bottom left" fgcolor="blue">Wait!  What just came over me?</caption>
<caption location="top left" fgcolor="blue">Truth to tell, Len, this is bad.<br/>
It's all so bad it makes me sad<br/>
In point of fact, I'd tell my Dad<br/>
If only a Dad I'd ever had.</caption>
<caption location="top right" fgcolor="red" font="courbi">BUT IT IS, IT IS A GLORIOUS THING<br/>
<caption location="top right" fgcolor="red">For I am a penguin king!<br/>
And if ever a penguin king there was<br/>Then on his head there'd just be fuzz<br/>
Because, because, because, because...<br/>
I AM A PENGUIN KING!</caption>
<caption location="top left" fgcolor="blue">Gilbert and Sullivan -- that's a switch<br/>
Maybe this story arc's not such a [[BEEEEEEP]]</caption>
<caption location="bottom left" fgcolor="orange" size="12">Whoops, sorry, folks, almost got out of hand there.  Lucky thing I had that seven-second loop installed on the Toon-o-Matic.</caption>
