    Dear ___* Pot

    Thanks for noticing.

    P.S. What’s an “Ecclesiastes?”

    My favorite part was mother-

    Dear Tereso Burrito Tee

    It was wholly a pleasure to see you recount, accurately, the way we treated all our poultry back in the day. After all, wouldn’t it just be the ultimate social faux pas if the MAIN COURSE served at the weekly potluck dinner of the Arkansas chapter of ARAST was wormy?


    Rotifer’s Mother

    P.S. I would say the subject of today’s effort at cartoonistry brought back fond memories, except this is still how I prophylactically worm my Rotty (once a week!) (his binge pasta of choice is vermicelli that often lives up to its namesake).

    Dear Ms. Foote Olive (if I may call you Olive):

    It was wholly a pleasure to see your expression of support for my Rotty (defending the indefensible can be very tedious (and Lawzee don’t I know it!)).

    I’m sure Rotty would have sprung to his own defense except for fact the restraints those men in the white coats use to keep him away from the strozzapreti also inhibit his ability to reach the keyboard.

    As for “beyond ignorant,” well, the Thalwegs are from Arkansas!


    Rotifer’s Mother

    P.S. I don’t think Rotty took it personally anyway. That overly protective (and somewhat clueless) commenter was just guarding Teresa’s cartoonerary virtue, and I think it was Barry Goldwater* who once said, “Extremism in the defense of Teresa is no vice.”

    Dear nice Ms. Girouard,

    It was wholly a pleasure to see your comment and question to my son, Rotifer. Unfortunately he is unable to respond right now.

    You see, just after he posted his comment here on nice Mr. Nighthawks’ strip, he checked out today’s Frog Applause. That nice Ms. Teresa Burrito (or something like that) had included a reference to his name and profession.

    Well, the fame and fortune that comes with seeing one’s name mentioned in a famous cartoon overwhelmed him and, substance abuse victim that he is, he began abusing his substance of choice. I haven’t heard from him since I received a telegram saying he had maxed out his prepaid Macaroni Grill Canoli Club Card and was headed across the street to Fazoli’s to hang by the dumpster and hope for the best.

    As to your question for him, I’m sure he didn’t notice. In addition to pasta dependency and congenital hypogonadism, he’s color blind.

    Anyhoo, thank you (and all his other little friends here at Sherpa*) for keeping him busy and distracted. I’m sure he’ll be posting here again when he recovers enough (and those men in the white coats loosen his restraints enough for him to reach the keyboard).

    Dear Ms. Burritt Teresa,

    It was a very nice thought on your part to recognize Rotifer’s loyalty to your twisted special brand of cartoonery.

    Unfortunately today’s strip fanned the flames of his already overheated ego, the massive fame attendant to any mention in Frog Applause went straight to his head, and he went on a pasta bender. Lord knows where he is now but the parking lot of Olive Garden waiting for the doors to open would be a good place to start looking.

    If I find him and can dry him out without having to send him back to camp in Italy I’ll make sure he sends you a nice thank you note.


    Rotifer’s Mother

    P.S. That nice Mr Brass Orchid is right. I’m very proud of my Rotty, his pasta dependency notwithstanding. After all, P.D. is a disease like any other (especially adrenal insufficiency, failing manhood, nervous debility, involuntary kazoolessness and Oxford comma deficiency).

    Dear Tee

    Perspective is an important thing. By that I mean it could be worse. You could be Rotifer’s mother.

    P.S. My favorite part was, “something irrelevant.”

    Dear Tee

    The photo of Rotifer’s aunts Kris and Kross is very becoming. Thank you for posting.

    P.S. You know what I say about your critics? I say, “Let she among you who is without butt acne cast the first stone.”

    Dear Mr. Radish:

    Your mother had more confidence in you than you had confidence in you (mothers are like that … yeah they are).
