    Actually, false. That’s not even close to the definition of insanity.
     
    That’s just a catchy saying that has been misattributed to lots of people, including Benjamin Franklin, Mark Twain, and Albert Einstein, but that in reality can only be traced back to the early 1980’s.

    Because Miss Lucille mentioned Hagerstown. But there are also towns called Hagerstown in Indiana and Ohio (although apparently the one in Ohio is “extinct”).

    And fezes.
     
    Oooooh, you mean this:

     
    For a moment I thought you were misspelling something completely inappropriate!

    Siberian mud moose, water buffalo… I’m starting to see a pattern here, madam.

    Those who read the comics very early like I do may have missed yesterday’s strip, as it was published later in the day.
     
    Without it today’s strip makes little sense.

    Regarding the creators.com/ArcaMax strip, where I live seven dollars buy you about one pound of horse.
     
    (Meat.)

    Meh. None of the former presidents of the USA were American Humans, just look at the skin. American Humans have darker skin, while European Humans have lighter skin. And American Humans normally have darker hair and the males have less facial and body hair. Yet all those men got elected as President of the USA.
     
    Newsflash: If you are born in the USA you automatically get the American citizenship, regardless of the country of origin or race of your ancestors.
     
    (My point: if Hammy was born in the US then he is an American even if genetically he is an Eurasian Red Squirrel. So his problem is not the kind of squirrel he is, but the fact that he is not human.)

    Maybe Timmy didn’t fall in a well, but in this episode Lassie pushes a “bad” guy (well, more or less bad) into a well and Timmy indeed sends Lassie for help.
     
    In this one “Uncle Petrie” falls in a well, but Lassie saves him single-handedly. (Single-pawedly?)
     
    Now, Lassie did save Timmy (and others) from all kinds of odd accidents. If Timmy were a car, his insurance premium would be through the roof. Clumsy kid.
     
    Indeed, if we forget about the specific detail of the well, theres an episode in which Timmy tumbles down the side of a mountain. Then a forest fire erupts caused by a thunderbolt, and Lassie leads the rescuers towards Timmy in a scene that
    resembles the “Timmy fell down the well?” trope.
     
    So you are right, no. But… yes.

    You do know that Ronald Reagan received similar payments for similar work, don’t you?
     
    And that is in dollars from 1989, so it’s actually more in today’s dollars.

    Yes, from 2012. A great little story arc, totally worth revisiting.
     
    Plus, Wiley took a much deserved break for it.
