    There were comments yesterday about GOCOMICS changing its logo for GA from Walt to Joel or Rufus. The logo i receive online still looks the same as it has been for as Iong as I have seen it on GOCOMICS — a simplified version of Walt

    I’ve heard “Dueling Banjos” from the movie Deliverance (1972) heard on top 40 and country-western radio stations,
    and I don’t remember it having lyrics!

    Just like George Carlin’s observation on words for the song Ta Ra Ra Boom de Aye. He made up his own.

    Loved Rufus’ response…The artist, Jim Scancarelli, is an accomplished fiddler so the reference to “Deulin’ Banjos” is an inside joke.

    Why did she ever ask him to join the choir? Was there a misunderstanding?

    I think it goes something like,
    “dee-dee-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-det” which is probably how Joel sings it. Was there a strip I missed where she did ask him to join the choir? I don’t remember.

    A lot of the icons have been changed, Gocomics putting a little variety in life.

    In Greek tragedies, characters are taken offstage to be killed. Perhaps the invitation for Rufus to join the choir, which killed its harmony, was also done out of sight of the audience. His expulsion from the choir will probably be done very soon, I hope.

    There was no strip, he just started talking about being invited and ran off. No doubt in deep depression after being jilted by a Jenny at the altar.

    don’t mind them messing with the strip and changing icons as long as Walt and Skeezik are still there. They are the heart and soul of the strip.

    Some choirs in small-town churches take anybody who volunteers.

    I knew a guy like Rufus. Couldn’t sing a lick. But he could play a pretty mean guitar.

    1: Is the director Clovia’s twin?
    2: Rufus reminds me of Barney Fife in the Mayberry church choir. Couldn’t sing a lick, but no one was willing to hurt his feelings by telling him. (But man, oh man, could Gomer Pyle ever belt out a song!)
