    Squid spleens would be tastier.

    So what happened to the color? Does the move to gocomics mean just B&W from now on or just during the transition? Was comics.com coloring them or Michael?

    So that’s why the pickled beets taste so different from the unpickled ones… (besides the vinegar). Regular beets make a really interesting additive to soups. They color the soup and they, themselves lose their color. Never eat them raw, though, unless you want to scare someone. Chem teacher claimed bromethymol blue supposedly would do the same thing, except blue. Not about to try the latter, thank you…

    Some other strips have had the problem. I think the colour needs time to develop. Maybe if we look at these strips in a few days time they may start to get colour. Something like a Polaroid print.

    Squid ink pasta does the same thing, coincidentally enough.

    I’m wondering where the colour is too, but it ‘beets’ me.

    @Number Six

    Just for that, you’re demoted to Number 6.5.

    6.5, wouldn’t that make it a PROMOTION? :-)

    Beets are like “Rocky Mountain oysters”?

    from the over the hedge website:

    “note: In transitioning over to gocomics.com today somehow Hedge has lost all it’s color. Shock, I suspect. The color should return after a few days of acclamation and after Lio squid stops marking his territory all over The Tree That Knows Stuff.”

    You really do need color to do beet jokes. And, just for the record, beets are nasty. My family has pickled the dang things for generations. My uncle claims it was solely for the purpose of being able to pass them around asking if anyone actually wanted one.

    That said, my brother actually likes them and my grandmother still pickles them.

    I like pickled beets just fine. Harvard beets, not so much, and just plain beets I have learned to avoid. I know which salad bars have which, too.

    I’d be happy just to get the comics. They have not successfully made the transition in my case — yesterday I got Frazz, today I got Frazz and Arlo & Janis — still 5 more to go for “success.”
