For help on how to follow a comic title,
Ralph shoulda told the little guy about that famous thoroughbred, Beetle Bomb. That relentless horse came back from being way behind to win the race - as related by Spike Jones many years ago. "…at 20 to 1…and in last place by ten lengths…is Beetle Bomb…and here they come down the stretch towards the wire…and the winner is -———-Beetle Bomb!"
Ralph’s logic is stunningly irrational — very much like that of an Alzheimer’s patient. Shoes should be stored in the refrigerator on a hot summer day. Broken bear-trap logic! Out of thin air come firmly-held totally bizarre ideas and behaviors that no rational person would ever think or do. Pitiful and poignant. Extremely frustrating to the patient’s caregiver who loves the patient.
Wild horses couldn’t drag me onto a cruise ship.
Honeybunch is somewhat opinionated — sometimes in a rather acerbic manner. She does not seem to live on the sunny side of the street. She is often sarcastic and critical. Ralph, on the other hand, is generally an upbeat guy. Go figure why they ever got hitched. But there is no accounting for personal tastes, eh?
Blondie is by no means “bubble-headed.” She is, though, a very attractive business woman. We ought not hold her luscious good looks against her. Dagwood once said to her, “If I told you that you have a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” Her answer: “No and yes!” Lucky Dagwood. He, like JOE, married UP.
Don’t feel bad, Norman — I have the same problem when I go to the hospital. Obedience is ingrained in us in kindergarten. It takes most folks a long time, if ever, to learn that authority is the enemy. One should always be one’s own master. This fundamental principle of secular Zen should be taught in kindergarten. But nooo; instead we are taught to be sheep that always go with the flock. Baaaa!
78 and counting to 110. Life begins at 80. Looking forward to my new birth.
Wealth is overrated. “It’s only money!” Easy to say, IF you have money. We would not give up our precious puppy Lucky “for all the tea in China.” Love transcends all else — no doubt.
Yes, Ralph, the Coriolis effect would change the trajectory of the golf ball by about 0.0001% — so your excuse is a bit overblown. But at least it’s not a BIG LIE. Just a very tiny one.
The late Jeff was one of Kevin’s avid readers. RIP.
