    Newspaper comics are 'for children' per the editorial boards of most newspapers; that's why they are so sanitized. They literally are asking themselves, "Would an 83 year old grandmother in Topeka be upset if she saw this word in the comic her 4 year old grand-child is looking at?"

    The Daily Mirror in the UK used to run (or possibly still does run) a comic called Mandy Capp, which would regularly have straight-up boobs.

    Then again, the UK is the home of Page 3, so tits in our paper aren't really shocking any more. Tacky, yes.

    We had Andy Capp. No booze that I recall, but plenty of after effect of it

    Don't forget the domestic violence. To quote Homer Simpson "Andy Capp you wife beating drunk".
