    I was pondering yesterday’s panel and it occurred to me that Ms. Larson may have been (good-naturedly) mocking the posters on this forum.

    Though I’ve just begun posting I have been lurking for a long time and I’ve noticed that some posters seem to find cache in being the first to post. To do so would require getting here early. This is silly of course and certainly beneath me :)

    Just a thought.

    Though being first to comment doesn’t count unless the comment actually includes something about the strip.

    So yours qualifies, but a simple ‘First Comment!’ does not.

    Oh, I didn’t know there were rules to being first! LOL! BTW, I love the ‘Diet Reminders’ on the ice box door. That sure explains a lot!

    I’m glad to know that cherry pie is a fruit. I’ve known for years that ketchup is a vegetable. Now we need to sanctify chocolate and Irish whiskey.
    Considering how Burl feels about Ma, I’m surprised that he hasn’t given her a little push. Although, it will take more than a little push to move that huge blob.

    Mornin’ Crustwood citizenry ….

    Like Marg, I can’t figure out that kitchen range….
    The stove looks like the hood of a giant Chevy pick-up with one of those open hearth clay oven domes where the windshield should be.


    Meanwhile…. Ma!
    The goat’s in the garden…. and it’s taking away my appetite.


    If you don’t have Ma in your kitchen, and you want to put up a diet reminder, you can use everything from sticky notes to small mirrors, talking magnets to skinny high school pictures…

    but one of the best incentives to quit eating I have EVER seen on a refrigerator door
    is Joy’s note that says
    “Check for mice!”

    Mikie…. chocolate and Irish whiskey are already hallowed, by their very nature.

    And X, I almost always see the last comment…. unless you go back and post on a day before yesterday..

    Forgot to say… long ago, in a town much like Crustwood, I knew a woman who actually made that “Mock Apple Pie” out of Ritz crackers.

    The recipe was on the box for years…

    Nasty, damp, gummy, too sweet …. and at the same time, very salty (sorry, apple pie is not salty!)

    Did I mention nasty?
    Nasty nasty nasty.

    Heck, Susan. If I really wanted to make the last post I’d go back a year or two, but that’s too much like work.

    <begin rant>
    But you all realize this is why GoComics took out the Edit function. With Edit we could go back in time and change our comments to make ourselves seem smart and witty or even clairvoyant.
    Example:
    12:10 CST x_Tech posts Yes, FIRST COMMENT
    2:30 CST x_Tech edits the post to read Like shooting PHISH in a barrel
    5:00 am CST everyone reading the comments thinks Hey that x_Tech is sharp (except SusanSunshine, beviek, marg and other night owls/early raisers)
    Or worse changing our comment to make another commentor look foolish.
    <end rant>
