    I used to do what Phoebe’s doing right now.

    People would bully me all the time when I was in school, so in a desperate attempt to retain my sanity, I pretended I was Diane Fossey studying and documenting them as though they were a pack of chimps.

    I was surprised on Phoebe’s “knowledge” on Latin as well, Marigold.

    “heavenly nose”?

    Funny. My nickname used to be “encyclopedia.” Now there’s no need to have the knowledge in the head— except when the internet has fit and shuts down temporarily…

    One of my nicknames was Einstein, which was an insult to the great man. It helps to be able to use the phone in an intelligent way as Phoebe had done.

    Love Marigold’s expression in the 2nd panel.

    Would be funny to see her eating just the flower tops off all those dandelions. :-)

    The equine nostril is indeed a heavenly feature. It can change its shape and diameter to suit its function and as an expression of emotions. Human nostrils have nowhere near as much flexability.

    I can’t let my daughter see todays strip. She’s only five but already is asking for a cell phone.

    @Q4horse

    The equine nostril can be quite discriminating.


    Whenever I wear a white shirt to the barn, the first horse I pet will almost invariably blow snot on it!

    re: junkyard

    No, the moniker was bestowed by an adult, oddly enough, as opposed to the random cruelty of children. It predated earning those degrees by about 15 years. I was always one of those that read something and remembered it. I used to be able to remember entire passages from books, but after being poisoned by HS on the job, it’s only sentences and context. I’m still able to write compendiums like the two volumes I’ve finished so far this year. The first is 394, 934 words and the second (copyrighted last week) 310,873. The last (about two weeks of work left) is only about 200 pages, and believe me, I will be VERY glad to have it all finished. Books are fun to write for about the first month. After that, it becomes work…

    Marigold is graceful looking even in that ungainly posture.
    (head down eating.)

    must be magic.

    White-butted? Must be one of those cases where the butt stands for the whole, like “Get your butt over here!”

    Good description Phoebe.

    I used to be one of those kids who’d randomly read entries in the encyclopedia for fun. Now I follow random Wikipedia links.
    It’s not so bad that people have instant access to knowledge these days- that used to be the Holy Grail of academia- it’s that they no longer feel the need to consider, or even retain, it.
