    Love it – Bishop Bushmiller! How totally appropriate. That almost looks like San Juan Capistrano in the background.

    I suppose he’s related to the owner of Bushmiller’s Power Equipment (where wooly bears go to buy snowblowers).

    Ok, I was wondering yesterday, but it looks like we are turning around again. I like the change!

    You can’t lie to a priest. They can always tell. At least an honest one can.

    @Susan;

    Only if they are true to form…

    Out of complete ignorance I ask this question… does one refer to a Protestant bishop as “Your Eminence”? I know the RC’s do, but if Bishop Bushmiller is RC, where is the Roman collar?

    Collar is a choice for a Roman Catholic priest. Even bishops are not supposed to wear it all the time (at least, in Europe).

    By the way, of course you CAN lie to a RC bishop. If you “confess” your lie later (even to the same bishop), you get forgiveness for you sin. That’s a good deal, isn’t it?

    Two days in a row with no Nancy, Aunt Fritzi nor Sluggo – this has got to be some record.

    Don’t ask me… I’m Baptist; we have no hierarchy.

    I was mostly curious about the title, but as far as the collar is concerned, is it an option when he is in “full uniform” like Bishop Bushmiller? That’s why I guessed that Guy drew him that way… hence the question about the title.

    If Phil marries, the strip will end.

    The words actually used in the strip are “Bishop” and “Excellency”; together, we can deduce that the Most Reverend Bishop Bushmiller is an RC bishop (or conceivably Old Catholic, who broke away, mostly about a century and a half ago, mostly because they couldn’t accept Papal Infallibility; or else one of the recent sects that hate the Vatican II reforms so much that they have broken away to start their own churches, with their own “popes”—but I think we can rule out both of those possibilities). Any other sort of bishop isn’t addressed as “Your Excellency”, and any other sort of “Excellency” isn’t addressed as “Bishop”.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN

    How about an inflatable Fritzi doll? Ohh, I did NOT just say that!

    O’ my God! I can only imagine!
