The style suggests to me that, if Kelly indeed ever wrote it in this
form, it was not in the strip itself but perhaps in the foreword to one
of the collection books. The "Thar" is troubling; I don't think he used
it even in Swamp-speak, except when someone (like Beauregard) took on a
Wild West persona.
