Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Rosie's head appears outside a second-story window}
Nancy (shocked): Nosey Rosie --- how did you get up here?
Rosie: I can stretch my neck!
Nancy (awakening from a dream): Wow --- what a goofy dream that was --- I'm glad she can't snoop on me like that!
{Outside view of house; Rosie is snooping in the second-story window via a periscope}

The author writes:

A commenter on the original strip pointed out that, "In the first panel, she’s actually stretching her torso." And they're quite right - in the first panel, Rosie's head, neck, shoulders, and chest are visible, while in the second panel, it's clear that it's just her neck that's stretched. The commenter goes on to say, "Then again, dreams don’t have to make sense." But this is iToons, and I can make things make sense, via the power of extremely basic photo manipulation!

Original Nancy strip: 1948-12-03.
