    BTW I guess those kids haven’t started building yesterday’s time machine yet.

    What if they aren’t going to do it till. like, March 2027 or something?

    Maybe I’d better bookmark yesterday’s strip, to jog my memory, if it’s years in the future when the beginning arrives.

    Beviek — Yeah, I think that’s just what happened — the date on the comic was “proof.”

    I thought MIxed Medications might be correct, in that we’d see “a week of prepping a box for time travel,”but it might actually be only one day, at any point in the future.

    Note to PSchearer — hey … mental challenge is good!

    Hi Dogsniff! Refer to me if you want moral support for your reinstatement. Glad I read back a few days, bummer. It’s a conspiracy, I tells ya!

    Dogsniff:

    I need you, friend.

    You always made my juices flow. And that’s a good thing.

    When I made my 1st comment I was thinking everybody knew that expression — “know what I mean, jelly bean?”

    It’s a “Know What I Mean, Jellybean.” I guess you need to know the expression to get the joke.

    Youngsters today don’t know what “Shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy makes your eyes light up and your stomach say howdy,” means.

    Uh oh! From Dogsniff’s profile page:

    Dogsniff commented on Brevity about 1 hour ago

    Well here it is gang. Like I said, I admitted my mistake and assured them it was an innocent one. I apologized. They said they discussed it, and have banished me forever. If anyone would care to email them at support@uclick.com and speak up for me. It could help. I’ll be on the road again, but will try to check my messages. Thanks all, Dogsniff

    Let me get this straight. A big red jelly bean knows what the guy means. He’s headed somewhere no one wants to go!

    My letter to GoComics:

    Please reinstate Dogsniff, he is one of the principal reasons that I visit your site. To me, the comments are more important than the comics themselves. His comments are absolutely outstanding. Unbelievably quick and witty.

    I do not know just how many people submit comments, but I can tell you that there are only a very few who are so good that I would miss them. And of those very few, there are only a handful for whom I would take the trouble to write to you asking for his/her reinstatement. Needless to say, Dogsniff is one of those very few.

    From your selfish standpoint, please realize that your site is losing luster and attraction without Dogsniff’s presence. If you think about this seriously, you should understand that you are hurting both your visitors and yourselves by not reinstating him. Whether you recognize it or not, he is incredibly sharp and one of your brightest stars!

    I’d rather read Dogsniff than quiet a few of your comics (which I skip.)

    Thank you for your consideration.

    This afternoon Dogsniff posted another comment on his profile, in which, among other things he said:

    Feel free to post my email address. It’s 2tikijoe@earthlink.net. "

    for my part, I made a booth with a sign saying “free dogsniff”! I narrowly escaped arrest (lucky I had my dog with me)
