    I see a few whatchamacallits buried in the barrel, but not a doohickey in sight. I want the thing that looks like a badly damaged and harmless coronavirus. Get more of those in stock, please.

    Unusual Runner-Up Names of Some Big-Time Comics

    I always wondered if Disney, before coming up with the alliterative MM character that made his fame, had started with an LL that he discarded. Lickey’s world was some little kid’s scalp. Yes, I do have a sick mind (my favorite cartoonist these days is Dave Blazek), though I can’t help but think there are enough sickies around now that it might succeed.

    Funnily enough (Is that a word? Let’s just go with it.)

    Yes, “enough” is a word. He-heh.

    Well, as the magician who threw a dish of My-T-Fine at his assistant to see if it would make her disappear, “The ‘poof’ is in the pudding.” We’ll see how the new format turns out. In principle, though, I agree with WEBOHJY, though not necessarily in detail. If these changes were not the result of complaints and suggestions from paid users, what was the point? How many interactive web sites have I seen in which everything was working find and dandy, only the webmaster had nothing much to do, and decided to make thrilling and wonderful changes that waste time for the user. After all, the idea for us here is to see the comics we like, maybe make a two-line comment (this is not an economic theory site) and get on with the next email in our Inboxes without further ado, the equivalent of the amount of time we’d spend if we were reading our favorite comics in the newspaper. I trust that will be the case. Thank you.

    If we keep reading Loose Parts, we’re going to end up with bubblewrap MINDS. This is really way out there. Love the absurdity of it all.

    I would have liked to have figured it out on my own without the caption. Otherwise, my kind of joke.

    This is true. When everyone can do X, the elite will demand Y in order to join them in the 1%. We will never have all “chiefs” and shouldn’t. What we should aim for, however, is “braves” who are satisfied that they are contributing to the welfare of the whole “tribe”, feel that they have something to contribute that everyone else considers valuable, and therefore leads to rewards that leave them time and energy to pursue their own interests too, not just those of the larger group and its leaders. We seem to be moving further away from that than ever and most people seem happy with the increasing disparity. This I don’t understand.

    Thus solving the long-standing enigma: Could he? Yes, he could. Next up: pickled peppers.

    But Brent Spiner’s still very much alive!

    I think I’ll stay far away from them when their other daughter Ruth leaves home.
