    Bob looks like if Charlie Brown grew up to be a CEO with a cocaine habit. How many Bobs have been in Pearls by now? Angry Bob, Neighbor Bob,, the various incarnations of Bob the Croc…it just goes on and on.

    Better keep that thing in your pants, Bob. Or at least disguise it as a crocodile belt.

    Painted paper bags cannot save a Bob Croc. His fate is sealed by his name, either to fail or to die, or both. I have a feeling this won’t be pretty, Junior!

    Bob won’t be the first bag man from City Planning…

    I like that Bob was naked before he hid in the bathroom to change….

    And when he comes home, he’ll probably go back into the bathroom to get naked in private.

    @Shufflinjohn -No, a LAST WILL is a dead giveaway. A tail is just a tail.

    That head is bigger than Newt’s and Jay Leno’s combined.

    Bob must be a ventriloquist. His lips don’t move when he speaks.

    The tail does sort of give him away.

    @killacowinWA – Maybe the next one will be named Ann…♪♫ Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, or Ann..♪♫

    @Susan Sunshine – hm, good observation….perhaps Bob is just getting into character, whereby he figures any self-respecting City Planning guy would change in private and so does the same.

    Never play cards with a man named “Doc”.

    Never bet that “Bob” will be around past Thursday.

    Bob had better not pick a fight with Zeeba; he might get a punch in the sack!

    read most of When Pigs Fly last night while zoning on the tube. Had a zeeba/rat/pig overload by bedtime. Too much Pastis can warp your dreams.

    I thought Ralph Wiggum as well. I think it’s the hair.

    It’s been weeks since a “laugh out loud” from me. What cracks me up more, the tail or the bag? I leave it to posterity.

    Bob isn’t a good name anyway for a creature who swims.

    Hey thanks, x_Tech — While catching up on the comments, I was just wondering where I’d said that stuff!

    And Nab — thanks, and yeah, or their lack of brainpower….

    To answer Larry: Yes. He resembles a person. Very much.
