Pinball cartoons and jokes

The cartoon below was found by Rob Hawkins who states that this cartoon (which was reprinted in Billboard) originally appeared in a New York City daily newspaper. It was said to have been precipitated by the use at the time of pingames in the psychiatric wards of city hospitals. The cartoon showed a patient who was offered a "bagatelle" game by a doctor refusing it saying "it's one of those things that got me this way!".

I don't write them, I just rip them off and repost them here. But since these and those to fo;;ow are from the defunct Silverball News, what's the harm?
