    Was the book translated into Dari or Pashto?

    Jeff Rides again! C’mon all you Jeff haters out there, accept it. Trudeau favors this dude, and he’s gonna be rich and famous. Sorry ‘bout that.
     
    Makes me wonder: • Is there any resemblance between Jeff now and the early early Trudeau, i.e., before his comix caught on? • Is this a real movie made of his first published book, or a fictional one that this arrogant writer has conferred upon himself in his next manuscript? • What’s Becca up to? • On a scale of 1 to 10, if you give Roz a 3 and Mel a 7, what do you give Becca? A 12?
     
    I’ve got more, but this is enough for tonight.

    In case you wanted to know: A “comp” is short for “complimentary copy”. Authors get a certain number of free “comps” on first printing; how many depends on the publishing house. Jeff is so arrogant (and dumb) that he gives all of his away, not knowing that some of those he’s gifted will hang onto their signed copies for later mega-bux in case he strikes publishing gold. Like, say, J.K.Rowling.

    Jeff just pulled a Bill O’Reilly.

    Jeff? Rich and famous? I don’t think GT himself could figure out a credible way to make that happen. Jeff is a legend in his own mind only. A $50-million-dollar, friendly-helo-downing screw up. Every character in the strip who knows Jeff knows that—isn’t that right? Name one—beside Jeff himself—who doesn’t know he’s a loser.

    Jeff has learned that old axiom “Never let the facts get in the way of a good story”

    You just said the magic words: A good story.

    The knife he’s waving is meant to cut the mines to pieces – I hope.
    I apologise for my earlier antipathy for Sorkh Razil. I…I’m sorry, but I’m beginning to become a fan.
    Someone stop me, quick!

    How many hit movies have there been in the last ten years based on comic-book characters? And I am not talking satires or comedies. What better way to illustrate that American culture is fantasy-based (all too often, violent juvenile revenge fantasy)? Or of demonstrating that making money and earning money are two different things, than by having Jeff’s book become first, a best seller; second, a hit movie?

    Becca sees right through him, all the way to the bank looming behind him.

    Jeff has the boundless ego, utter disconnect to reality, and woeful ignorance to make a fine guest “expert” on Fox.
