Yep, this was started in an early Marvel issue.  Can't remember the number
off hand, but involved Pal lying about some pirates and Drumm wondering just
where those pirates were.  I don't know if Mark intnended it to turn into a
running gag (like the Prince of Chichester) but it just sorta stuck.  BTW
Mark, what determines a running gag?  Is it response from fanmail or just
something that you personally find amusing?  Or you just couldn't think of
anything else to put there?
