    If Garfield is here, where’s Jon Arbuckle? Waiting in the car?

    So – which one’s the pot, and which one’s the kettle?

    Note: I was thinking about having Ed and that Cat be envious of each other but decided to keep this to a nice single panel since it’s hard enough on Scott needing to mimic another style.

    I like it better this way also because I don’t care for characters being self conscious about their ‘role’: “I’m the lazy one.” “I’m so evil.” “That’s me- I’m the bully.”

    No, they are just busy in the 6 hours they are active. 6 on 18 off.

    The pot and kettle metaphor is no longer appropriate. I am Black and I am proud!!

    Did it ever mean black in that way? Or was it the genuine color black that an old iron kettle might be? A lot of old sayings lose their original reference points, and I think we assign new meanings based on our current cultural references. F’rinstance: ‘pass the buck’ and ‘the buck stops here’ didn’t originally mean ‘buck’ as in ‘money.’

    1, I see no reference to color in the original comment, just a reference to a pot and kettle, and 2, there is a difference between Black and black.


    If the saying were, The pot calling the kettle Black, it would not be appropriate, but The pot calling the kettle black seems ok to me.


    Of course I speak as a White person, and cannot begin to understand the sensitivities of other cultures/races. My apologies if I seemed insensitive.

    It was the genuine color black… soot build up from being set in a fire.

    Both pot and kettle were iron and so they looked black.
