Usurped by the Funnies

This morning I had an encounter with the ghost of Dick Tracy.

I said, “How is it possible for a cartoon character to be a ghost?”

Dick Tracy said, “That’s easy. I’m no longer syndicated in newspapers. That’s how a cartoon character dies.”

I said, “But you’re just ink.”

Dick Tracy said, “And you’re just protoplasm.”
