Hagar the Cuckold

I was sorting through some books in my room today, trying to find some to get rid of. Imagine my delight when I found this Hagar the Horrible strip, cut out and filed away between two books.

This is a real strip. Hagar's wife is having an affair with his dog. That's the only conclusion I can draw from this. There doesn't seem to be any joke, apart from Hagar's marriage that is. Hagar seems to be taking the news pretty well. I guess by this point their marriage was mostly for show anyway.

Unless the joke is just that she's alseep and not waiting for him, and the dog is just tucked in that way for the sake of a funny visual. I can imagine the artist and publisher assuming no one reading the funnies has ever heard of beastiality. It'd be quite a fuckup, but there you have it.
