    If he had only one wooden leg, his flute playing would undoubtedly suffer.

    Dinner in bed sounds…ummm…interesting with those scallops. I would prefer a bed of cheeseburgers and fully-loaded fries; but I guess beggars can’t be choosers so I’ll fake smile and enjoy eating the scallops. “Mmmmm, tastes good honey!”

    Last time he took a hiatus it was because he was writing a book. The book came out in March so I’m not sure why he hasn’t updated the comic strip since April. :(

    The derecho that hit the Midwest made it impossible for me to check in to be disappointed last Thursday, so I imagined that there was a new Castle just waiting for me to enjoy. The power and internet just returned so I came here as quickly as I could—to be disappointed again. Disappointment delayed is still disappointing. But at least it is consistent.

    No derecho this week and no Dumbwich Castle. The former? The absence is wonderful. The latter? Well, here I am again, pining for the fjords.

    Every Thursday I check the Lotto America results and then I check to see if we have been graced with a new Dumbwich Castle. My faith in coming here was last rewarded on April 30. I still haven’t won Lotto America. There is a lesson in there somewhere.

    Funny that his new book is called Hope!, because I am losing hope in this comic ever returning. An exotic massage with donkey blood looks more rewarding.

    His Instagram had a brand-new comic called “Quarantine Nicknames” posted 7 weeks ago. Would have thought he would have published it here too but I guess he’s done with GoComics? I’ll keep this on my list just in case he resurrects himself here. But for those who want a more recent strip from him go here: https://www.instagram.com/lord_birthday/

    I guess this comic is gone for good. I kinda liked it, so I’m sorry. It’s a shame it ended with one that may have been Lord Birthday’s worst one ever (parents dying just isn’t all that funny in any context).
