    Deadpan, non-plussed…the trickiest humor to get right.

    Meredith Viera = thinly disguised Meredith Vieira to avoid lawsuits Pab? Or did you just mispell her name?

    I’ll give you a typo, Pab,: misspell

    And after all these years, we still don’t know if it’s BARF-lee or BAR-fly.

    Every time I see the word “Barfly” I think of Charles Bukowski.

    is purina bad? wasn’t purina the pet food laced with toxic substances made in china, that we are now seeing organic pet food?

    Nestle-Purina company had some problems with one of their treat and “wet’ food manufacturers but there dry foods have always been o.k. except that they contain corn and wheat which is proven to cause allergies in pets. This has to do with modern farming techniques and how the grains are processed. The last ten years have seen a dramatic rise in skin allergies in pets ( and gluten intolerance in their human owners ) because of wheat, corn, soy products.
    Hence the trend among the better ( and more expensive ) independent pet food manufacturers to be “organic” and grain-free, such as Blue Buffalo, Call of the Wild, and Merrick.

    I hope you are referring to Jim Davis and his Garfield comic character. It didn’t take me more than a month back in the 70s to see that his characterizations were going to go nowhere. Silliness and repetition bore me. That his strip became immensely popular with the plebeian masses didn’t surprise me either. Reference: Network and Reality TV.

    If your comments were directed toward Pab Sungenis I have to vehemently disagree. New Adventures of Queen Victoria while not meant to be ha-ha funny is nonetheless, in my opinion, refreshingly quirky, topical, and intelligent. And Pab has been known to comment on the comments at times as well. I like that too.

    I had a recurring problem with little moths – in both adult form and larval – in Purina dry foods (so there were likely egg and pupal forms in there as well). After having this occur in several bags, I quit buying commercially available Purina dry cat food. But my diabetic cat is on a Purina prescription dry food. Haven’t had that problem with it (so far…).

    I’ve always liked “Garfield”, so I can’t agree with you (even though Pab obviously does). But of course, there’s always going to be some people, who don’t like what we like, and we have to respect other people’s opinions. NAoQV is great too, in another way, even though I don’t agree with Pab politically.

    The change Pab made 5 years ago was to make the cat gray so it didn’t look so much like Garfield.


    I’ve never heard of any cartoonist having a problem with Jim Davis. But Disney? Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Not a cartoonist, but back in the 80s, a buffet restaurant in upstate New York ran into some BIG trouble with Davis’ lawyers when they opened “Garfield’s All You Can Eat”, complete with His Orange Fuzziness ablaze on the sign, complete with fork and knife in paw and a napkin round the neck, and the hostess answering the phone, “GARFIELD’s!”. After a couple of cease-and-desist letters, they did change the sign out front to “James A.” in tiny letters atop the sign yet GARFIELD’s in large enough letters a blind alien on the moon could read, all above a Rorschachian interpretation of the president. And the same hostess answering the phone (mumble james a. /mumble GARFIELD’s!!!!)


    They lasted about a month after. Too bad. Some pretty good food, but no regard for intellectual property laws. The owner was a great cook, but definitely a 10-watt bulb trying to compete with Las Vegas in terms of business practices.
