    Here all the time, I thought his first name was Opus.

    Lowfat milk…yuk. White water is more like it.

    Juarez Tequila? With your Jerseycow Brand 2% Lowfat? What will George Will think? Or say? Shameless milk shill!

    The P stands for Penguin.

    @saywhatwhat

    Maybe the name’s reversed, like in Chinese.

    Does anyone remember the magazine ad that this is parodying? I think it was for an alcoholic beverage of some type. It might have been Absolute Vodka, I’m not sure.

    It was “Dewar’s Profiles,” but I guess those profiled were not necessarily well known. Enter “Dewar’s Profiles” on http://images.google.com to turn up quite a few samples.

    No comments on his last book read or movie seen? Both are real titles, surprisingly. That the Princess Di book is real is truly amazing; the curious aspect of the Zippers movie is that Breathed picked a movie that seems to be pretty obscure. Whose picture is pinned to the dartboard?

    Looks like Jesse Helms on the dartboard. Dan Rather to the left, and George Will on the typewriter.

    Like the call Nancy post it. That one pops up again.

    I just noticed that Breathed’s signature on this comic is reversed…
    ’Hadn’t picked that up before – is (was) it common for Berkeley to do that???

    I think the backwards sig started showing up more in the latter half of the Bloom County run.
