It’s called the Zaphod Beeblebrox paradox.
Poor Opus. He never stood a chance. Now he has to extract that turtle by itself from his briefs.
Mot as bad as a snapping turtle catch-22. Ouch.
I’m worried about the coming Catch-2020.
If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.
Poor snapping turtle.
Poor snapping turtle has nothing to eat down there.
After all these umpteen years of doing this, Breathed is finally getting the hang of drawing faces in profile (Milo in panel 4).
The persons who covet great power are the ones who should not get it
I believe George Washington was the only president who fully realized the seductiveness of perceived power. . .
KOR: I shall need a representative from among you. Liaison between the forces of the occupation and the civil population… You, Baroner, you’re the man. KIRK: Me? I don’t want the job. KOR: Have I asked whether or not you want it? (Star Trek TOS, “Errand of Mercy”)
What a meadow muffin ;)
Is that a smile on Milo’s face?
If he keeps that snapping turtle there, he likely won’t be too nuts for very long.
I’ve never felt comfortable voting for anyone who wants the position.
It’s probably a mere coincidence, but after Hillary Clinton proved she didn’t understand the Electoral College as much as Vladimir Putin did, I’ve been re-reading a lot of dystopian classics. You know, “Brave New World” and “1984” and “Animal Farm” and “Fahrenheit 451” and far too many to mention. My second favorite book (after Huck Finn) is “Catch 22”, which I re-read recently, and I will bet two Yossarians and half a McWatt that THAT is dystopian literature!
Opus, pretty soon you will know WHAT a " good catch" REALLY is !!!!! lol
Where is Orr when Opus needs him?
I wonder if Milo has plans to market chocolate covered Egyptian cotton as part of the campaign.
Speaking of “nuts.”
Before there was “Apocalypse Now”, there was “Catch-22”, an incredible book made into a credible movie. You were not allowed to go on bombing missions in the European Theater in World War II, if you were crazy. Claiming you were crazy to avoid going on a mission was considered proof of your sanity. That’s the original “Catch-22”.
“There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he were sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn’t have to, but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.”
I called him Zaphod before he was elected. I don’t say it much now because it turned out to be too niche-y a joke.
Run, run, as fast as a penguin can!
You won’t catch up to the 22 (23? 24?) wannabes of the Left.
You need not fear being elected. Won’t happen. Still, Opus and Bill is quite a ticket!
Who wants to be the President? (I don’t) Have every whack-job on you vent (I don’t) Be called the devil’s spawn or even a cur? (Or even a cur – do I want? No, sir!) – With apologies to Cole Porter (High Society, 1956)
If he stuck a snapping turtle down his briefs he needn’t be concerned about nuts for long…
Vote Bill & Opus 2020!
I think it was Robert A. Heinlein who said something to the effect that those who most want political office are the least qualified to hold it. Or maybe it was mark twain…
I like all the comments referring to the “Hitchhikers’ Guide…”, but it’s interesting to me that only one person referenced Joseph Heller’s book, “Catch-22”. Maybe “HG” is just more popular, but “Catch-22” is a hilarious book and well worth the read.
Catch 22. There aren’t that many people named Milo. Maybe it’s a family name and he has inside knowledge…
If anyone wonders, that snapping turtle is dead. Didn’t last 5 seconds down there.
Deep Thought, dude.
common Berkeley, back to work. Someone needs to slave away in the comic mines.
