It may have been the best magazine cartoon in history. It showed a gaggle of penguins on an Antarctic ice cap; all decked out in their "tuxedoes", which is what all penguins wear. All except one! One penguin who drew a curious crowd of other penguins wore a natty beret, sun-glasses, gold chain, checkered vest and draped pants. In his mouth was a long, rhinestone-studded cigarette holder. The caption was, "I just got tired of being so damned formal all the time!" Barry got tired of being married -- NOT to Sara -- but to the headlines of the moment. In this episode, Barry seeks to prove you can wander far from page one and still attract a "curious gaggle".
