For birthday party gifts I absolutely love to have little Abe paint the funny pages and we use the artwork for wrapping paper.
Sometimes however you may not notice until you're on the way to the party for the one year old nephew that one of the only legible words left on the page is "BURP!" I laughed. They are called the funny pages after all. But it was NOT my intention to have that one word left sticking out like a sore thumb.
