    Guess the plot’s thickening even further . . .

    Alley had better figure out what Wizer’s REALLY up to . . .

    Oh, well Hugopouncies to all Oopsters out there!

    This is going to be a long slog, since Wizer said he was going to hypnotize all the dinosaurs in Moo to attack the Moovians. Just now getting started on the first one. Hard to see how he trains them to attack everyone but him.

    I’ve found something extremely interesting. Remember the discussion we had about Alley Oop being ignorant about rubber balls? Then he invented the Alley Oop shot while playing Pitz in 6th century Mesoamerica? Well, check this out. In the Sunday strip of March 10, 2002, Alley and his friends discover a rubber ball that grows on trees. On March 24 they invented the game of basketball. Then, on March 31, Alley invents the “Alley Oop” shot! No kidding! Check it out if you don’t believe me. Carole has gotten so senile, she can’t even remember her own stories! I repeat what I’ve said many times. It is time for the Benders to retire!

    Okay, my apologies! I just discovered that GoComics has removed the Sunday strips from that era, so you can’t check out my claim about the March, 2002 Sunday strips. I don’t know where I got them either, but they’re on my hard drive. I checked with and their Alley Oop strips stop at 1999. Darn.

    Local schools are trying to put in their lesson plans that they will not teach history past 1940.

    If you delete or restrict knowledge, you can control quite the populace and there is none to say otherwise, unless the proof is brought forth.

    Teresa: that’s a bit scary to have a cut off at 1940.. the next 5 years after that were really important to the contemporary world political structure. A huge change took place within hours on Dec 7, 1941 that made a difference here in Canada and particularly in Europe, as it got the US involved completely in the global conflict. The casualty level in US forces in the Pacific is notable on its own, higher I believe than the Allied forces in the European and African conflict areas. Blocking out WWII seems like a strange and important time to pick for cut off.

    Good Morning Benders and all .Wizers biggest problem is the potion will eventually wear off. 2nd problem has been mentioned He can only control then train the dinosaurs
    one at a time. This will take months.

    Remember the guy at the circus that used to put his right arm in the lions mouth?
    Oh, Come on – surely you remember Lefty?

    Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to simply to take revenge for an imagined sleight. A pointless and trumped up tale. So much potential, so little imagination. And all the unfinished tales that drift off to oblivion. Sad.
