1. I'm trying to assess whether it's an intentional paradox

that the song in play ... is one in which the singer is basically bashing the 'listener' throughout?

Guessing ... yes?

I gather the guy in the hat is the cartoonist?

2. The guy in the hat is the cartoonist

Pearls Sunday strips have puns in them a lot of the time, and those strips always end with one of the characters berating the cartoonist.

5. How is that a spoiler alert?

It's common knowledge amongst regular readers of the comic strip.

6. In a nation of over 330,000,000 people, how many do you think know what this strip is ...

... I believe this broach of one of the main in-jokes of the strip has now been ruined for over 300,000,000 potential readers. This is so unfair!

12. I am so glad you see my point. It just pains me to know the funniest joke in all creation ...

... has been irredeemably ruined for the vast majority of the American people. This shall not pass.

I'll be bringing it up at the antifa meeting tonight.
