Just came across this tidbit in old email. In the Pogo comic strip dated 13 December 1951, Churchy and Albert are talking to Beau Moonlight Sonata, the famous singing frog:
Churchy: With you singin' on our side, Albert an' me will sure win Miz Hepzibah's hand...
Beau: How can you BOTH win her hand?
Churchy: Well, there's one apiece. She got the usual number.
