    “This ain’t the funny pages.” Well, of course not. You’re lucky if there is one semi-funny page these days (“pages” here refers to the dead tree material, not just electronic signals on a display screen). Alas, poor Steve Dallas, framed by the root beer-sotted Three Stooges, Opus, Hodge-Podge, and Bill.

    You should have showed the officer Bill’s Album cover. He would have recognized that Bill is not just any cat, but Bill the cat “Comic Strip EATER!”

    I wonder if this is the only panel, in the entire history of Bloom County/Outlands/Opus where Bill speaks “feline”. Except for his trademark “Ack aack”, of course.

    The cop has a camel that can yodel? Maybe they can all get together and form a new group.

    I don’t think penguins go “chirp chirp”.

    Opus is practicing his Rosetta Stone bilingual training, or, from the original comic strip era, Berlitz.

    @hariseldon59 It is the only bird noise he knows.

    Berlitz. That sure brings back memories of trying to teach myself Russian via my Dad’s Berlitz guide (He’d never admit to ever having them, now, but I also motored through his copies of The Communist Manifesto and Mao’s Little Red Book).

    Bill does NOT go “meow”! What he is doing is speaking the word ‘meow’. There is a difference – as Terry Pratchett and Gaspode will only too gladly explain.

    Don’t have the book handy to check, but I THINK this is the very last strip in “Billy and The Boinger’s Bootleg.”

    It was only root beer, but then they put it in a square glass …

    I bet anything the root beer was spiked! Either that or they were smoking something, as they normally don’t have that much energy…
