My granddaughter told me one time, with a wry little smile, that I was being "inappropriate". I told her that I have to grow old but do not have to grow up.

I have the least idea what Ganefs mean. The writer/editor Harvey Kurtzman was always tossing in a Yiddish slang word. But anyway, on the internet the definition of ganef is to "rule to a flat stomach" - or "losing your stomach" - which happens later in the story.
"Inappropriate" huh? That could be the name of Immaturity's sister magazine.
Opps! Now I see you did some research in your next comment.

Tossing your cookies is just as good. Rascals and scoundrels do that a lot, don't they.
