Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley for August 24, 2014
Satchel Pooch: Hello, Bucky. Or are you Bucky? Bucky Katt: What are you blithering about? Satchel Pooch: Haha! I've been talking to Rob about deep stuff. Like, do we have souls? And how we can't prove that anything outside of ourselves actually exists. Bucky Katt: We both exist. Satchel Pooch: How do you know that? What about I think, therefore I am? Bucky Katt: Exactly. You think, therefore I am... constantly annoyed. Yet your existence is that irritating little piece of grit that inspires the pearl that is Bucky. Satchel Pooch: That's the most self-centered thing I ever heard. Bucky Katt: I resent that. Satchel Pooch: Of course you do, you're a cat, there's a reason "meow" starts with "me." Bucky Katt: Wanna see what the "ow" is for? Just keep talkin'. Satchel Pooch: So tell me: Do cats have souls? Bucky Katt: That's harder to answer. Depends how long their fishing line is.
