The Cowardly Lion is here to wish the late Judy Garland, star of the movie adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and born on this day in 1922, a happy birthday. Of course, we all know that's really Mr. O'Neill in there, but the "cowardly" part still applies. The episode "Legends of the Mall" referenced Garland in a Sick, Sad World bit:
"It's legal, and tender, but someone's getting shortchanged! Little cross dressers and the women who love them, coming up next on Sick, Sad World."
Daria: If that woman were Judy Garland, this might make sense on a couple of levels.
