Bring it on.
Fastest bumbershoots in the west.
He’d love eastern cities on the coast of China during rainy season. It can rain down, up (the rain hits so hard that it bounces right back up again so raincoats are useless), or from any direction; sometimes more than one at once!
in the Philippines it could be raining on one side of the street and sunny on the other
What does he mean? Rain? Where does he live? California, where it NEVER rains (allegedly)? Rain 121 days in a row? I dared the Rain to keep up after the first 40 days, I lost! Sunny California? I double dare you, and give us climate, not 85 degrees in January, dare you to go below 40 degrees, but what to wear?
With his right hand, Arthur controls the heavy duty umbrella awarded to him by the 3rd Ancient Order of Weather Deniers, Ballard County Chapter. With his left hand, he employs the pink parasol inherited from his dear mother.
Yaaaawnnn… um… I mean….
I’m here… sort of…. this is where we’re going to post our comments on
the Jan 13th 2019 “CLEO and COMPANY”
(Really we are! )
Read it first on Sherpa
By now Claude should have learned the first rule* for pushing unfamiliar buttons:
Rule #1 ) DON’T
In tonight’s scenario, a label saying “Do Not Touch” should have triggered yet another rule….
Rule #2) No, really… Don’t!
But, like many a character before him, he has chosen to ignore the rules…. (possibly yielding to that subconscious urge, common to characters created for the purpose, to elicit a laugh from their audiences).
I hope he doesn’t assume that his contract includes coverage for his dry cleaning… or…er.. pie cleaning bills.
I don’t see Claude licking his lips, or Cleo rushing to sample the flavor of this pie…
Perhaps it’s a genuine clown pie, made out of old fashioned (non-aerosol) shaving cream.
A collectible classic!
Speaking of collectible classics…. Dennis didn’t mention Arthur’s late 19th/ early 20th century engraved leather umbrella bandolier.
A beautiful thing to those of the Ancient Order of Weather Deniers and to those of us who merely enjoy fine old umbrella-centric leather goods.
These rules are mentioned in Chapter 2 section A of "The Comic Character’s Guide, ©1983, 17th (current) edition… and clearly spelled out in Appendix 31b.
Right. I hear you. Don’t worry.
I am going to bed, very soon.
But I hope you will all meet me at my pie shop in the morning, for pie, coffee, and Cleo discussion.
For some reason, I’m craving some nice banana cream…..
Nighthawks has discovered the secret to the universe:
FLOOP! = comic strip gold.
Well, at least Cleo was smart enough to tell Claude “No”! But did he listen? No no no!
Love this one, NH. But next time, make it a CHOCOLATE cream pie!
A short personal note: MMM is still in the hospital with pneumonia. They say it takes a while. He’s VERY anxious to go home. My pain is slightly lessened, but PT seems to be working on those pesky lymph nodes.
I’ll stop in when I can. xoxoxox
Once again, proving dogs are smarter than man…….(you noticed I said ‘man’)
Thanks Nighthawks, the “Do not Presses” are always fun!
Do we all now go from panel to panel checking if the fireplug and lamppost are still in the same places, or if they’re part of the “nine differences”?
Thanks to the entire C & C Family for all your good wishes. Yes, it is always better to be home. xoxo
