        Jiggs is the central character in Bringing Up Father, a comic strip
created by George McManus in 1913 and still in circulation today.  He is an
unpretentious Irish immigrant who has become wealthy but still prefers
stereotypical Irish foods and pleasures, in contrast to his wife, Maggie, a
domineering social climber.
