Headscratchers: Beetle Bailey
  • How did Beetle even get through basic training? With as lazy as he is, he should have washed out of the Army long ago.
    • It was actually touched upon in the strip itself, back in the early years when Beetle first entered the Army. This was during the Korean war, and a lot of young men were drafted (though ironically, Beetle wasn't; he signed up voluntarily to prove to his draftee friends he wasn't a coward). Naturally he didn't do well on any of the tests, but was accepted into the Army anyway because, as the authority decreed, everybody had to put up with "second-rate produce" in those days.
