    Poemer and poetrina . two new additions to the English language.
    Somehow… I don’t see them entering common usage.

    “Poemer” is no stupider than “odist”, a crossword puzzle standard….


    ….. or “stupider,” which I recently found in a puzzle too.

    I remember another where the only word that fit the space and the definition of “writer” was “penner”.


    So Agnes can add to the vocabulary if she likes…. she might as well.

    Only flaw is if there are already existing words — it’s like “preventative” (which has same meaning as pre-existing “preventive”).

    I’ve come across a number of webcomics where the credits are given for the writer and the drawer


    Most of them have been by people or whom English is not their first language, but not all of them

    The evidence would suggest, Dr. Toon, that English is NOBODY’S first language.

    I love when Agnes makes up her own words. She is actually quite clever.

    Oh, I thought she’d go with “poemress.”

    “Poetrina” – sounds very aristocratic.

    Most people use “stupider, stupidest” though it is supposed to be “more stupid and most stupid.” I use the latter without comment.

    FYI
    About Agnes


    Tony Cochran’s Agnes is a whimsical look at childhood through the eyes of the title character and her best friend, Trout. What sets this strip apart is the focus on that limbo just before little girls discover boys and appropriate social skills.

    Where ya been Night?
    Missed you.


    BTW…. thanks but we know that stuff…. most of us are just trying to be funny.


    I’d never say “stupider” if I weren’t making a joke.
