Oh Sophie, you are everything!
If anyone knows “trash couture”, it’s Sohpie. She’s like the Queen of repurposed things.
Leave it to Sophie to appreciate the raccoon’s creative use of found objects colanders and silverware and tin foil. Yes, I know it’s not made of tin, but that’s how I learned it.
“Everything is beautiful, in its own way…”
Also, “Everything is Everything (Witchi Tai To)”
The racoons have a fan in Sophie! I hope they appreciate her oeuvre as well.
Whoo! Sophie on the mic! I love how her whiskers have gone up, boing! in the third panel. It makes her look…younger, almost? Very focused and engaged. As a rather reserved introvert – who occasionally never shuts up once you get me talking about something I’m passionate about – I feel for her!
Out of the goodness of my heart, I’m not going to link to “Everything is Awesome!!!” here.
But it’s already stuck in your head. >:D
Did you know that thing actually has verses, with lyrics, that didn’t make it into the movie?
From the Moody Blues: Nights in White Satin
Knights in tin foil
Searching in the trash cans,
Are they preparing
Some nefarious plan?
Or just making a fashion statement,
Of haute couture?
Just what their plans are
We cannot be sure.
But we love their sense
Of high fashion!
Ooh of high fashion!
Are these raccoons going to be recurring characters now? I like them.
I can see raccoons doing excellent couture work, what with their dexterous little hands.♥
What are they actually inspecting? The foil or whatever is still attached to it? “This grease is authentic!”
But while Sophie is rhapsodising over the raccoons’ armour, poor Goldie is succumbing to a miserable turn of fortune.
It didn’t occur to me that Sophie would approve of their wardrobe. It should have, but didn’t.
Sophie knows great craftsmanship when she sees it.
Sophie appreciates the aesthetic.
Sophie needs her own CN mic.
Sophie would know art.
And is the foil linked to the mystery of the missing people?
Sophie is going Steampunk! :))
IRL Lupin is busy on a bedside table…see Twitter link below ;-)
“Trash coutour armor”, perhaps. But tin-foil is sooo last season.
That last panel is going on a mug, I hope.
It’s my birthday. Spent last weekend with the daughter and son-in-law to celebrate. I had such a taste for pork roast, so tonight I’m making pork roast, smashed taters, asparagus and lashings of gravy. And I’m getting myself a BD cake and ice cream. So, the hubs and I will have a totally off the recommended foods list meal. It’s my birthday and I’ll eat what I want to, to paraphrase a song…
:D I love Sophie’s mike S W I P E in the third panel! [Much laughing.] Tommy’s look of surprise is perfect. And nobody “swipes” something with a lightning-quick paw strike like a focused feline!
Meanwhile, the third ’coon…“Curses! Foiled again!”
In the history of GoComics, who’s comment has gotten the most likes?
The More You Know!
I wonder if, after they’ve inspected & scattered the trash can contents, the raccoons will have uncovered key clues for Goldie…..
Sophie’s toe beans are everything! So much so, they produce rainbows and sparkles!
Sophie has an idea!
If Tommy and Sophie are looking out the window at the raccoons, why does it look like we’re seeing the backs of their heads in panel 2?
‘Adaptive Reuse’ – Thy name is SOPHIE !!
Why did Tommy say “raccoons” in quotation marks? As the news-cat about town, I would think he’d recognize a raccoon even if it’s wearing retro trash couture armor.
Sophie needs to be the culture reporter covering Steampunk conventions. They are wall-to-wall Victorian clothes and wearable gadgets.
Preparing a dystopian fashion collection for “Project Trashway” with Heidi Gloom and Tim Glum.
I do wonder how this will all tie together.
OT: I’m not sure how I’m going to feel about wearing the t-shirt from this race tomorrow. The logo is supposed to be a cupcake. It looks like the “I’m in severe gastrointestinal distress” version of the poop emoji.
With reference to @ladypeterw, I am currently baking cake. My stepson and fellow cat man just started working for a very upscale bakery. He came home yesterday asking if I can make “rainbow cake.”. Yes I can. 6 layers of colors plus lemon butterflies frosting and a cascade of m& m s when cut. Yes I watch food network.
Buttercream. I hate spellcheck.
Waitaminute. Is Sophie’s one eye yellow and the other is green? Or is it time to change my monocle again?
Gent, I am not familiar with bear Genes. I just know bears are handsome and smart, plus fond of picnic baskets.
Wait, it includes a certain bodily waste product?
Street fashion at its best.
