    Reminds me of my youth — drinking Kool-Aid and buzzing around the neighborhood. Then the Kool-aid turned electric and the buzzing turned into getting buzzed — oh so many years ago – but that’s probably a different comic strip! But don’t worry, I grew up and turned out okay! There’s alot of Arlo in me!

    Are you still drinking the Kool-Aid?
    Hate to turn this political, but only tongue-in-cheek – isn’t it ironic that the tea party is often accused of “drinking the Kool-Aid”?

    I like to think of myself as a hard working, ring around the collar, kind of guy. More of a gatorade or crystal-lite drinking guy. More on the apolitical side.

    MIL has one of those feeders on her front porch. DH sits out there to visit with his brother sometimes. He said the hummingbirds will come hover right in front of your face and chirp because they think you’re too close to the goods.

    Different Kool-Aid…electric Kool-Aid from the 60’s Kool-Aid laced with LSD. The Kool-Aid referred to politically is referencing the Rev. Jim Jones of the People’s Temple in Guyana and how his “people” blindingly believed him and stood in line to drink the “Kool-Aid” laced with poison. I am not a “tea party” follower, nor do I wish to be political, but I do believe people should know what they are talking about. OK sorry…on to the comics

    I’ve always found the second use of the Kool-Aid expression both morbid and offensive. It makes light of a tragedy that, while 30+ years old, is still fresh in many peoples’ minds. Granted, most people, especially those under 40, may not know the etymology, but I’ve heard the phrase used by people, including many in the media and politics, who should know better.

    “Knock down the Jello shots” has a much more civilized tone to it.

    Then again, a big pitcher breaking through a wall is very disturbing.

    Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, by chance??

    @Tay C
    I used to color mine red by making a concoction of corn sugar and fresh strawberries. The hummers would, literally, fight to get to it.

    We had to cross the street every time we walked around the neighborhood for about a month to avoid a nesting pair one year. They were right over the side walk and would go spastic and try to dive bomb us otherwise. But I saw at least 3 at our feder once before the males noticed each other and started divebombing.
