    I’m happy to see Monty finally scored.

    After what she did with Monty she’s probably eating those herbs to control her nausea

    Such a pretty salad it is. And pollen is very nutritious. It’s a good thing they didn’t have allergies back then.

    In the absence of chocolate, weeds will do.

    Hunter and gatherer, I’m impressed.

    Flowers as object lesson.

    Myself, I think I prefer a little more snappy conversation.

    But Monty is male (more or less) and very lonely.

    NOT that such things are not important to women…

    But I think we have less ego involvement in the outcome.

    A gift of roughage.

    Tattooed…. meant to thank you for the great interview link.

    Wish all the people who keep asking for Robotman to come back would read it.

    I’ve posted links to Wikipedia and comics sites…. but to hear it straight from Meddick is enlightening.


    Actually, if you don’t mind…. I’ll link it here, for those who missed it or need a live link.


    Interview with Jim Meddick on the origins of Monty, the character and the strip.

    It used to be thought that back in the Palaeolithic women did the foraging and gathering while men hunted. Monty would naturally be the opposite. Besides, Oomuka’s eating the flowers is probably a greater appreciation of them than letting them stand in a vase and die….

    Thanks for the link. I just read it and was astonished the Monty WAS an alien, originally. I did not know that.

    No real surprises there, I suppose – after all, women are from Earth, men are from – who knows – they probably lost their way, wouldn’t admit it and ask directions, and just stopped here . . .

    It seems the Meddick has never been too hung up on continuity but here’s what he says in the interview: “That’s one reason why I changed Monty from an alien to an inventor—I thought there would be some continuity there.”
    To me, the strip isn’t as much fun if Monty’s an alien.
