Mondrian cup

Happy birthday to me (and to Marty Bax).
I received said cup PLUS a Jeremy Corbyn plush.

Hiccups (and cartoons in general)

Bought today on eBay, a rather faded and yellowed cartoon described as
"This auction is for the original art to the July 18th, 1959 Mister Breger - written and drawn by Dave Breger. Shows out hero at a MOMA like museum looking at Mondrians - Modern Art on wall. King Features Syndicate, Inc. tag at bottom 1959 - zip-a-tone yellowed but art looks clean otherwise. Very light stain at very bottom right. Original Skinner auction tag on back and stamped June 19, 1959 from original engraver in prep for publication. "
 The caption is (including detailed punctuation),
"'...and then,' it says, 'his work was somewhat affected by a three-week attack of hiccups...'"
