Dear Finneganers: I recall reading in some book or another a little bit about the presence of Punch magazine in Finnegans Wake. I don't have the piece at hand right now, nor do I even recall where I read it; but as I was looking through some Punch pages this morning, I thought I'd share these two with you, from the volume collecting issues from 1900. I could readily see this kind of fish-out-of-water / aren't-English-oafish humor being an influence on Joyce's representation of the mingling of furreners midst the home sort. Whatever else, these are funny. From the archives, Z
