My avatar was drawn for me by rOdd Perry, the artist half of the original BREVITY Comic team ( http://www.gocomics.com/brevity/2011/06/03 ), and is (very) loosely based on a photo of me. Thank you, rOdd! Occasionally, I edit it a bit. Please don't blame rOdd for the hats and hair bows.

    Ah… I see that most of you think Bert was insulting Stu.

    I took it the other way.

     

    From the contemplative expression on Stu’s face, head a bit bowed, pencil to chin, eyeing the simulated object lesson of Bert’s posed fingers…

    I took Bert for a mentor… someone whose advice Stu welcomed, even sought, in his bid to become a valued member of the staff, instead of the bottom-of-the-heap, sometimes laughingstock, he knew himself to be.

     

    If he weren’t Mr. Pierpoint’s son-in-law, he’d still be the best stockroom guy at Pine Street Produce and Pet Supply, like he was before he married Miranda Pierpoint, and got thrown in over his head.

    Technically, I’m not supposed to do that any more,

    but it’s in service of Charlie’s strip, so I’m hoping I’d get off easy.

    I think it’s sad… a lot kids today are stressed and feel unsafe, sometimes with good reason.

    When I was about 8, in a different world, I had an elderly neighbor, a few doors down.

    She lived alone with a cat, so kids being kids, some started calling her a witch, and avoiding her house on Halloween.

    But she had beautiful flowers, and one day I sneaked into her back yard to look at them… she invited me in, and we talked, and had milk and cookies.

    I started going over there maybe once a week, after school, and helping her with her garden.

    My parents said “that’s nice”… the only thing they voiced any concern about was my eating cookies before dinner, but because I was never one to lose my appetite, they decided it was OK.

    The only things they knew about her were her last name and where she lived.

    Like I said… a different world.

    “Pupsephone” by Charlie Podrebarac.

    You may have seen it before…

    Or you may be confused by having seen Thomas Hart Benton’s blatant copy, using human models, which he called “Persephone.”

    She makes sure to eat a balanced diet.

    And when she feels like she’s coming to the end of her rope, she turns around.

    I’m starting to understand why Lynn called it embarrassing.

    Student protests I’ve seen have been much better focussed and meaningful.

    Goodness.

    Nobody FORCED you to read Ashara’s comment, and it didn’t jump in your face.

    I feel to see what it ruined, even in your view, without your participation.

    Meanwhile SIXTY FIVE people gave it a like, including me, after reading your words, and many who are THANKING Ashara in the other comments.

     

    Calling it “ruination” is not only being unkind, to someone who went to a lot of trouble…

    but a pretty selfish view, when all you had to do is skip one long comment.

    Your view of the strip would have remained perfectly pristine, while everybody who WANTED to read it enjoyed it.

    Eating all that stuff the same night might well give you an upset stomach… maybe make you throw up, even if each item was safe to eat.

    But food poisoning is entirely different. It comes from pathology, not stupidity.

    If Boyd really has food poisoning, Annie might be about to get sick too… incubation takes longer for some people than others.

    I have a feeling, though, that he doesn’t.

    “Pay no attention to that cat behind the curtain … Pay no attention to that cat behind the curtain”

    Oh, wait… wrong movie…
