    I think the idea is that the blue wizard is insisting on a fight. I read this one in black and white in my local newspaper this morning, and without the colors, it was really hard to see that the town had been shrunk. I didn’t get it until I kept staring at it for a bit.

    Oh, yes, and potatoes. I can easiy get fat just eating too many potatoes, prepared any way, even just baked and broiled and plain with no animal products such as butter or milk.

    A vegan diet can be healthy, but there are plenty of plant-based foods that are not healthy at all, and very much contribute to obesity, such as corn syrup; too much of starchy vegetables and fruits such as corn, green peas, tomatoes, and bananass; sugar, flour, and too much vegetable oil.

    LOL – I always wonder how students of English as a second language do with these things, especially if you read them out loud.

    @puggles, that’s not at all how cow biology works. They make milk for the same reason human mothers do – because they’re pregnant. Dairy cows have to be kept pregnant 100% of the time, and most of the calves are taken from their mothers and killed as soon as they’re born. The reason they have milk to be taken is because the dairy farmer took their calf away and immediately re-inseminated them with another pregnancy.

    Actually, if your main reason for being vegetarian is to cut down on animal abuse, you shouldn’t eat any dairy products at all. Cows don’t give milk unless they’re pregnant, so dairy cows have to be kept pregnant 100% of the time. Half of the calves born are males. You can keep a few for future studs, but the rest have to be killed, and there’s no care taken to make sure the milking machines don’t hurt.

    Females too old to give any more milk are also killed. Basically, you can’t run a dairy industry without also running a veal and beef industry. Even the calves that are kept are often treated very inhumanely. Most of the calves are taken from their mothers at birth.

    All that said, I’m not a vegan, but I do have my eyes open about how cruelly we treat our food animals. It does concern me.

    Oh, I just noticed the pun in Bucky’s line. “Peace” into “pieces”.

    Satchel’s “evil eye” on Bucky in the last panel made me LOL. There will be no inner peace for anybody with the Buckster around.

    I read that because they’re cold-blooded, real crocodiles can go up to 30 days without eating, no problem. So, they kill and eat one animal, and then they just sit there in the water for the next 30 days soaking up the sun and doing nothing. So, the strip crocs may actually be a little like the real ones.

    A vegetarian diet can be but isn’t necessarily healthy, especially for diabetics. It tends to have way too many carbohydrates in it, especially if you overeat. The key to eating in a healthy manner is to eat sensibly – small meals that get smaller the later in the day, always small portions, and a balance of nutrients. Watch out for carbs if you’re diabetic, especially carbs from flour, table sugar, or corn syrup. Cutting out meat doesn’t help. In fact, lean meat is quite good for a diabetic.
