    Nailed it.

    I’m pretty sure he’s referring to what he ate…

    Most of us probably wouldn’t gripe about it because simply stating “of the new Doctor” all in caps would not be a clear reference. Now, if there’s a visual cue, like a Tardis or sonic screwdriver, then yes, tacking on the “Who” might be protested or labeled as overkill.

    I gotta say, Garfield’s presence really makes this strip. :)

    Hello, Sweetie. ;)

    My dog is, too. Of course, I don’t want kids, so…

    My [adopted—biologically grand]dad quit 20 years ago when smoking resulted in a quadruple bypass (and a few weeks after my [biological] mom [and his only biological child] died from pneumonia at age 26, undoubtedly made harder to fight after she’d gone back to smoking—though being a quadriplegic played a part, too).

    20 years later, he has pulmonary fibrosis, despite never smoking again, and I’m watching him die right before my eyes as he grows more and more reliant on his oxygen machine. Whose business is it if someone smokes? Not just theirs—but their family’s, their friends, and those who love them. It’s killing me to see this happen to him. Yes, he’s 75, but before the PF, he was still unstoppable.

    Two years ago, we buried my 55-year-old cousin when a very aggressive lung cancer killed her. Eight years before that, her mom [dad’s sister] died from the same thing. 13 years ago, my uncle wouldn’t quit smoking and died from a heart attack that was entirely due to smoking.

    Don’t tell me that smoking is only the smoker’s business. When you’re loved by anyone, it’s their business too, because they have to deal with the long-term effects. And don’t even get me started on secondhand smoke—that actually put me in the hospital with over a 104 degree fever when I was four years old because I’d developed a severe allergy to it.

    For me, it’s personal. I’ve lost (and am still losing) the people dearest to me because of cigarettes.

    One word: hyperbole. ;)

    Why reiterate a breed stereotype, especially when it’s not true? Pibbles (the affectionate term, for the uninitiated) are no more aggressive nor bite more than any other breed—they’re just targeted more. Any breed can bite aggressively, just as any breed can be gentle-natured and patient. It comes down to the owners. If anything, I’d expect that, if the incidents were reported, there’d be a higher rate of aggressive or reactive bites from small dogs because so many owners don’t discipline their small dogs, making them think it’s okay to behave that way, because they’re “too tiny and cute to do any real harm.”

    Ugh. Sorry. One of my pet peeves (and no, I don’t own a pit bull—there are too many city ordinances. I have a lab-heeler mix.)

    They are a whiny bunch, aren’t they?! Guys, Brian’s the artist and the writer. Give him some time to develop the characters. And there’s no reason to assume your disapproval of the strip’s evolution is actually everyone’s. It’s an opinion, and if your opinion is that it’s no longer for you, then move on. Stop grousing about it like spoiled toddlers.
