    “BURP”? He can surely do better than that.

    It’s the eddy around Eddie’s burp that drove ’em off.

    Doesn’t the cafe have one of those signs that says “we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”?.Or the tongue-in-cheek version that says “we reserve the right to serve refuse to anyone”?

    Considering Cap’n Eddie’s belch cleared the air and the diner, the next coffee’s on me.Must have been some burp. It sent the seagull flapping, and Pauly had to put on a gasmask.(I also like the exclamation point from Eddie’s pipe!)

    Eddie isn’t “us” or “them” but “him”. “individualism” trumps the gang mentality of bigots. It’s very challenging if you have to see someone from the group you hate as a real person and not just a gay, liberal, right winger, commie or whatever. Kind of puts a dent in the hatred. I guess those two weren’t up to the challenge of it.

    What a lovely, tolerant individual you are.

    You can only show tolerance when you disagree with someone else, but allow them to have their rights to differ with you. All else is that of yours and Wiley’s – totalitarianism.

    They thought that a lobsterman was someone who ate lobsters, which would make Eddie one of the 1%. As far as the religious debate, it’s been about profits, not prophets.

    Wiley is lying, as liberals typically do. Memories Pizza, the bake shops, etc., did not refuse to serve gays in their places of business. They declined to serve gay weddings as a violation of their principles and faith. They have the right to that opinion and action. The Gay Mafia and the enabling media, including leftist comic strip artists, have decided that certain segments of society don’t have the right to their convictions. The Leftists and Gays are the intolerant, hateful people.

    Thanks to Puddlesplatt, NightShade and all the pointer-outers of the little touches like the gas mask (I was going to ask about that one), the seagull, and Eddie’s pipe smoke. You help make us aware of amplifications of meaning (or words to that effect) we would not have otherwise noticed.And thanks to the people who put their own interpretations on who the bigots are. You helped illustrate Wiley’s point.

    Ooooo, by the looks of things (gas mask, etc.), that wasn’t a burp. It was a ‘furp.’ They can be quite odiferous…

    I like the way Wiley avoided the word, “Bible” or “Koran” or “Torah” or whatever and euphemized with “Field Guide.” Still leaves it wide open.

    Well we don’t know if oral sex is a sin or not. It’s not covered in the field guide.

    The most amusing part of this story arc has been seeing how many people in the comments section have had their consciences pricked.

    This ending was appropriate, since so many of those commenting appeared to be full of gas! I predicted Eddie’s parting shot three days ago. To quote myself: (Eddie is one of my favorite current comic strip characters but I’d be hard-pressed to put him into ANY category of “them” since he’s one of a kind!)

    For those who somehow think the characters portrayed in the strip this week were “unrealistic” and “over the top” caricatures, I offer you this:

    I for one think this was one of the funniest story arcs in a long time. But it was an audience participation piece…And Wiley purposely didn’t didn’t even name anybody, except bigots, yet look at all the flack he got! Oh, and dflac, thanks for pointing that out….Ha! Field Manual..Wiley is so sly……Went right over my head…

    I always like the punctuation marks coming out of Eddie’s pipe. I think he just got an extension on his tab from Flo for his help.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is that this the best there is in both cartooning and social commentary….I’m stunned by Miller’s talent and genius, as well as the idiocy of some of his readers…You know…Them…..And I’m pretty sure he’s laughing as hard as the rest of us are…….

    @Dr.sillyHere is your post from yesterday (your embarrassing mistake from yesterday):The phrase, “separation of church and state” comes from a guy named Thomas Jefferson. You may have heard of him. He wrote the Constitution.

    Here is my reply to you: (and WHY nobody corrected your mistake in either yesterday or today’s comments saddens me)Er……no, he didn’t. Thomas Jefferson had as much to do with writing the Constitution as he did of writing the Magna Carta. He did write the first draft of that Declaration thing……..
