That's what it said! It was one of those stupid little text things surrounding a spy vs spy comic in Mad Magazine back about the mid 1960's. They used to do things like that... put weird little sayings in the space between frames of a comic inside the magazine. They also would put strange looking little... I don't know... cherubs maybe? Maybe little demon types... hard to describe them... in the spaces normally left fallow in most magazines and comics. Few of you here probably have ever even READ Mad Magazine, let alone remember the stupid stuff they used to put in there. I don't know why, but I still remember this little phrase from my youth. Maybe it's a secret message and all you gotta do is decipher the thing and fame and riches will be yours for life. Maybe it was intended to confuse me... I am generally not too easily confused, but I suppose this one qualifies. On the other hand, maybe it was just there to entertain me and make me wonder what drug of choice that particular person who wrote it was on at the time. Regardless of the motive, I still remember it. It's crackers to slip a rozer the dropsey in snide. What the heck IS that?

Then there was the little cartoon commercial... I can't even remember what they were trying to sell, but there was this little guy, a baseball player, standing at home plate, and he swings at a ball thrown to him. He misses and says... Iflewammiepackaloomer ya dirty ratzlefrats! Now I suppose that indicated his displeasure at missing the ball and was a substitute for swearing. Please forgive me if I got the spelling wrong. It's been a long time and it was only spoken so I can't vouch for the spelling... still, why do I remember it? How come I can't remember what it is they were selling but remember the stupid little guy swinging and missing with his bat and saying something ridiculous.

Maybe over 40 years from now you guys will remember me now that I have said something ridiculous too. It could happen!

Google it, I just did, you mispelled the word Dropsy, but there are alt least 10 web sites talking about it..
Even one that seems to be a mad magazine (archive maybe?) site itself

I can't believe there is actually something on the web about it! Who knew? And all this time I thought I was the only one in the world who remembered it.
