Grit? Really, Grit?

How did Richie Rich get so rich? According to this ad, he sold him some Grit.

The panel where he's actually delivering the issue of Grit is kind of hilarious because Richie is SO ENORMOUSLY OUT OF PROPORTION compared to his customer.

I love that classic episode of the Simpsons where Bart and Lisa are discussing whether Casper the Friendly Ghost is the ghost of Richie Rich, Lisa posits that Richie killed himself, and Marge worriedly asks them to lighten up already. (Wish there was a clip of it on YouTube I could link to, that show could be so delightfully subtle in the old days.)
