This is great! Haven’t thought of that song in years. Now I’ll be singing it all day. :0)
lol @ Digital
OK, PEOPLE… first of all, this is a COMIC strip, not a DRAMA strip. Lighten up! Kitty will be fine. It was a great opportunity for a joke.
Second, this reminds me of when I went into the hospital to have my fourth child. I was in active labor and they handed me the forms to fill out. I couldn’t think to fill in the first blank and it was “Name”!
Wow, the black backdrop areas sure make the colors pop out in this strip… love it!
Thanks for the name/quote references, OldMan! I’m too young to remember those, but old enough to remember who Amos & Andy are. ;0) I enjoy hidden treasures like that showing up in a comic strip.
Beautiful artwork today… especially the seascapes.
Gertie needs a good cry when this is all over.
The earth’s climate changes in cycles. This is nothing new. Someone just figured out that money and Nobel Peace prizes could be attained by exploiting it.
Color added for the upcoming colorful characters?
Ha ha! Been there, done that.
Well, jt… I did misread the sign, so that explains why I didn’t get the pun… thank you for explaining it to me. Guess my brain registered what it THOUGHT it should say and I focused on what was being said.
Had I gotten the joke, it probably would never have crossed my mind to consider what it takes to volunteer 30 years when many only manage one week a year, if that. (I’m not criticizing people who don’t volunteer! I’m pointing out length of time to recognize long-term volunteers.)
However, had I been right, I think my “sensitivity” would have been warranted and that you still probably wouldn’t have heard a complaint from our humble volunteer firefighters. It’s not like I was seething with offense, just saddened by the irony.
But I was wrong, so the point is moot. :0)
I actually thought this was a sarcastic commentary on the fact that it takes 30 years of volunteer firefighting to be recognized. Seeing how volunteerism has been glorified in a lot of the comics this week, lauding people for giving a week of their time, I now just find it sad.
