    At least it wasn’t the Stoning of Stephan.

    The Charlie Brown balloon floated over from ‘Brewster Rockit’.

    Well played, Stephan. This particular strip is a direct homage to a similar Peanuts strip, where Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Linus are looking at the clouds and having the same word-for-word conversation, except for the last two panels.

    In the original Peanuts strip, after Lucy asks Charlie Brown what he sees in the clouds, Charlie Brown answers, “Well, I was going to say that I saw a ducky and a horsie, but I changed my mind,” because he considers those things to be ridiculously lame compared to the images that Linus said that HE saw.

    Again: Very clever, Stephan, very clever! :-)

    Nice tribute to a classic Peanuts strip, with a great twist.

    C. Brown: “What do you see in the clouds teacher?”
    Teacher: "Wa wa wa wa Wawa wa? Wawa wawa "

    Well, this kinda let’s the air out of good ol’ Charlie Brown!

    Sincere & sentimental thanks to the commenters who reminded me of that great PEANUTS strip. That said- parades, circuses & zoos should all be consigned to 1911, where they were still relevant & moronic displays even then.

    I think it’s in tribute to Charles Schulz’s birthday yesterday.


    Stephan worked for Schulz’s various enterprises and the Schulz Museum for a long time.


    And Marg — I was thinking that too. Brewster didn’t stop them all from attacking people, I see.

    And I…..sniffle… like parades…. though I much prefer the small home grown variety to big commercial ones.

    This one is going to be hung over my desk in NJ. And I too like Parades, all sizes. The smiling faces of the spectators always make my day.

    Our modern parades are a direct descendant of the “Roman triumph”. (Giant balloons are a modern addition).

    “The procession continued along the Via Sacra to the Forum and ascended the Capitoline Hill to the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus . . . The route would be lined with cheering crowds who would shower the triumphator with flowers”

    I remember Linus seeing the stoning of Stephen in the clouds. it seems that it was audio though, not a comic.
    maybe on an album or one of the TV shows?
