    @Ariesr

    I wonder if the fact that the Lemmians tunneled their way to freedom will lead to King Guz revamping Moo’s penal system, as it were? Perhaps he might have a “prison cave”?

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    My understanding is that the cave was already there – I believe they talked about “the cave beside the pit.” A number of people were wondering what the prisoners were doing with the dirt which was displaced while the prisoners were digging a tunnel to Lem. It is quit possible that, at the bottom of the pit, there IS a cave, where prisoners could congregate during inclement weather. So, presuming, there has ALWAYS been a cave at the bottom of the pit, which would be beside the pit, it would have been possible for the Lemian soldiers to begin digging their way toward Lem simply by entering the cave and beginning to dig. The dirt which was displaced would have been kept inside the cave – so no way for Foozy to notice what the soldiers were doing. The soldiers were first sent to the pit in March, and Tunk joined them in April – so the soldiers have had around seven months to go to the back of the cave and begin digging a tunnel in the direction of Lem. So – by the time that the ladder was tossed down into the pit – the Lemian soldiers had already finished their tunnel and were probably surfacing in Lem. Only one soldier was left – and his primary job was to let Alley and Guz know that the Lemian soldiers were no longer interested in staying in Moo.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    NOW – if Guz wants the Lemian soldiers to fill in the tunnel between Moo and Lem -he will probably need to offer some sort of incentive – Probably enticing them with hints that they could earn some of Uumpa’s home-cooked meals.

    A yellow, a blue and an orange panel. Have the cartoonists all decided that there is something “artistic” about discontinuing the use of color – or are all of the colorists on strike?

    @Lois

    But it would have been easier to run up the ladder. Where did all the soil go from digging?

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    The Lemian soldiers have been down in the pit since MARCH – Tunk joined them in APRIL. So the soldiers had at least a month to be working on the tunnel before Tunk arrived. And, even after Tunk began to tussle with the soldiers – it took another month or so before Guz sent Oop off to take over the Wizer’s job – and another couple of weeks before Guz decided that Foozy should guard the pit. So the soldiers had several months to be working on that tunnel. And who was going to notice that a big pile of dirt and rubble was piling up on one end of the pit? Foozy wasn’t spending any time looking INTO the pit – Fooz was just standing around at the entrance to the pit.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    Once the soldiers’ tunnel broke through to a cave – they could easily have moved the tell-tale dirt and rubble into the cave. Once the ladder was tossed down into the pit, the soldiers could have elected one soldier to go up the ladder to find Oop and let Oop and Guz know that the soldiers had decided they did NOT want to remain in Moo after all.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    IF Guz wants someone to fill the tunnel up again, he may need to have to bribe the Lemian soldiers with offers of free grub to get them to do the job. Of course, Tunk could always dust off his original sob story about Lem running out of game and water – in order to convince Guz to feel so bad about defeating Lem that Guz will offer assistance to Lem for however long it takes for the Lemian soldiers to finish filling in that tunnel!

    THAT explains why no one was running UP the ladder and out into the woods. All of the prisoners had ALREADY left and were on the way back to Lem via the underground tunnel! The joke is on them, though! When the Lemian soldiers arrive at home, they will be greeted with all of the jobs which their wives have been saving up for them while they’ve been gone!

    Yellow, pink and salmon today. Are the colorists on strike?

  6. Lois GoComics Pro Member commented on Zack Hill 12 days ago

    First an all green panel – then an all pink panel then – finally – a panel with color. Can’t help but wonder if someone is just being lazy – or if a bunch of cartoonists have decided that panels of only one color is “artistic.” My personal opinion is that it just looks weird – definitely not something I would consider to be “artistic.”

  7. Lois GoComics Pro Member commented on Daddy's Home 12 days ago

    A yellow, a green and a pink panel – THEN some color! Can’t help wondering if someone is just being lazy or if this is something new which all of the cartoonists have decided is “artistic.” My personal opinion is that the trend is just weird – and not at all “artistic.”

    It was wonderful to see Nancy remembering what September 11 is all about. I am somewhat shocked at the number of cartoons which posted “never forget” strips back in 2002 – who seem to have forgotten already. One Big Happy at Creators Syndicate had a GREAT memorial strip – but not many others -

    Morning, Oop Fans.

    Meanwhile, the prisoners are still trying to figure out what to do about that ladder. It’s worse than Barney Fife leaving the keys hanging on the wall next to the jail cell.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    IF I were writing it – the story would be that the Lem soldiers realized that, as soon as they were released from the pit – they would need to head home – where their wives would put them back to work. So they decided to continue lounging around in the Pit, while sending ONE representative to speak to Alley and/or Guz about the asylum deal. After the prisoners’ representative gave the bad news to Guz and Alley that the Lemian soldiers were no longer interested in asylum – the prisoners STILL decided they would be better off, remaining in the pit – rather than rushing home to whatever jobs their wives have been planning for them!

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    IF Tunk and the Lemian soldier are REALLY smart – they will REFUSE to leave the pit – preferring – rather – to remain as “guests” of Moo – where they are now in a prime position to be demanding some really delectable grub – preferably cooked by Umpa and the Queen’s friends.

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    I continue to believe that Tunk’s REAL plot was following THE MOUSE THAT ROARED – and that Tunk INTENDED for the Lemian soldiers to be quickly defeated, so Tunk and the Lemian soldiers could continue to receive “foreign aid” from Guz and the citizens of Moo.

    I keep wondering who Reed Hoover from Dallas, Texas is – and WHY so many of the recent Plugger cartoons have been credited to him. Can’t help but wonder if the original team is thinking about transitioning to a successor – and they have picked Reed Hoover to take over the strip. There seems to be very little information on the Intrnet about Reed Hoovr from Dallas.
