    Clams got legs, but snakes don’t got antlers.

    I guess that depends on your point of view.

    I was sitting at church two Sundays ago wondering what in the world happened to my wife’s hair up in the choir. Once I moved I could see that I was seeing her hair along with the woman directly behind her. For a minute I thought that she was doing a blond-headed Marge Simpson!

    There are a number of snake species with “horns”, and Native American legends tell of monstrous horned snakes, but I’ve never heard of one with antlers before. Might you call that a ”herpelope”?

    HERPELOPE! HERPELOPE! HERPELOPE!

    Gee, that’s fun!

    What’s that whining sound?

    Reminds me of the old saying “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach”.

    SIGH

    Of course Leonardo didn’t do newspaper comic strips, but the principles of linear perspective that have been used in Western art since the early Renaissance are available and used all the time in comic strips. Comics no more have a literal 3rd dimension than Da Vinci’s Last Supper or an Escher engraving, but they have the same ways of representing three dimensions. They are also free to subvert perspective as they choose, and likewise the effects of subverting perspective have been known and exploited in High Art for hundreds of years.

    So JA”J”D, what you said is technically true. But JohRak is correct in spirit, in that your comment was characteristically devoid of meaningful content…

    How do we know, as a fact, that Leonardo da Vinci NEVER drew cartoons for what passed as newspaper in his day? Oh, that’s right, Joe knows EVERYTHING, including how to ignore the “about a jillion other artists since the Renaissance” portion of the argument.

    Once again, how do we know, as a fact, that Leonardo da Vinci NEVER drew cartoons for what passed as newspaper in his day? You offer your supposed education as an argument that he did not, but what does that prove, and how does it prove it? By the way, how do you justify calling others “idiot’, “moron” or “stupid” and yet get hopping mad when anyone so much as infers that you are anything less than brilliant?

    Actually, I think only an ignorant moron would believe that his knowledge goes beyond the tiniest fraction of what he insinuates.

    Norman was right.

    LOL Love the second snake: “In my what?” Meanwhile green snake smuggly slithers on with his eyes closed.

    Now the blue snake will wonder where the bird is. Too funny.

    I saw in my big book on Michaelangelo - drawings that are called “cartoons” … if you are interested, I’ll go get the book and find the first time the expression is used
