    It’s interesting that the strip still uses Belfry as based on Teddy Kennedy.

    One wonders if Joe Kennedy started the trend in the family or if it predated him. Sure didn’t do much for the Kennedy family structure when his kids and grandkids and even further relatives like Shriver took after the old philanderer.

    That’s why she has private detectives following you.

    Yes Joe was the first, at least that’s what we know now, there could’ve been a long line before him…he also liked the actresses…it was a family tradition…

    Personally I always thought that Belfry resembled Tip O’Neill more. YMMV.

    I kinda do think Tip was the model. So what? Belfry is Belfry and is pretty symbolic of one of our stereotypes.

    Jose’s father was rich, owned 4 successful saloons, which kept him out late. Work on it from there.

    phritzg’s idea is a good one, but the butter is a lot of the flavour.
    Also, think carbon/diamond and butter/cheese you’re really not saving that much, although every little bit helps.




    @ Hawthorne (also from yesterday)

    You’re welcome. I know you’ll enjoy the dishes when you get time to make them too.

    Old Joe had to learn it from somewhere, too ……….. Probably was going on back in Ireland, too.

    Tip and Ted had pretty much the same hairdo, but Belfry definitely has the Speaker’s “beak.”

    Eating butter is a southern tradition too. Anything with butter tastes better. Anything with bacon also tastes better…. Hmmmm… Buttered bacon anyone?

    I believe the Kennedy women knew their husbands would be phooling around. Like was noted by Jo Clear… its a phamily tradition.
    Still, Belfry looks more like the speaker than he does the senator.
    As far as Massachusetts goes, didnt they also give us Mitt and Kerry?

    Read my whole post bonehead and you will see that I slammed both the Senator and the speaker. BTW, I did like JFK as a president, It is a known fact he was a womanizer, you got a problem with that? Tip is too.

    I believe Belfry was originally sculpted after Tip O’Neil, because Ted Kennedy was too thin when Belfry was “introduced.” However, as Ted put on weight, and it became clear he enjoyed the occasional martini, it was just a natural progression. Fortunately, both men were from Massachusetts, so the confusion can only go so far. Just not far enough away.
