“and I ate it”
Homer Simpson was disappointed because he thought a Cheerio on the floor might instead be a donut at a great distance.
good ol’ Elder Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of which both Brian Crane and I (as well as my fellow GoComics user Lee Cox) are members… when did David say that though? I don’t remember ALL quotes from every General Conference of the Church.
She may have expected even more.
(Women are sometimes unreasonable that way.)
For awhile, when my kid was about two, any cheerios on the floor were HIS. ‘Course, he was the one who put it there. Later, we hired a dog. I can honestly say that I’ve only had to clean up a cheerio maybe twice in the last 30 years.
Congratulations Earl! What a monumental feat! Next time why don’t you sweep the whole floor while you’re at it?
‘BABY steps’ people… baby steps..
Cheerios you can leave. But you do not want to leave a Grape Nut where you can step on it in your bare feet. Legos are nothing compared to those little nuggets.
Accept the victory Opal.
Atta Boy, Earl!
Roscoe must of been off duty ;-)
Thank you, Elder Bednar!
Like training a dog.
The things you discover when you fall into a Google wormhole when looking up something from a comic.
Maybe some of you know, but I didn’t, that Brian Crane is actually a practicing Mormon…
he’s probably well acquainted in real life with the writings of LDS Elder David Bednar.
Mr. Crane and his wife have 7 children, and, as of the article I read, 17 grandchildren.
Not that it all means anything… I just found it interesting.
Sometimes, being single rocks.
I suppose that’s progress.
I like the porch swing and they air their thoughts….
Good boy, Earl! Good boy! Now for your next trick. . .
My wife would say “ You must be warn out, go sit down for a while!”
Wow he picked up a cheerio.
One big step for mankind. Once Cheerio for Earl.
Tomorrow see Earl and Opal get dumped out of the swing by a design failure . . .
This cartoon is the Late and Unlamented, aka my first husband. Not only would he have told me about the Cheerio, but he would have wanted a round of applause.
The fact the Earl was able to bend down and pick up the Cheerio is an accomplishment in itself! Good job, old man!
If you left it there, Nelson’s little feets would have smashed it!
Hey, cockroaches have to eat too.
Next time don’t drop the Cheerio, Earl!
well he’s got “little” down cold
If you’ve saved just one little bird, you have fulfilled your purpose in life.
The day before yesterday I would have stepped on it!
Improving gradually. Working your way up to picking up your own underwear.
Take your victories where you can find them.
who is david a bednar???
The intent of the message is we can all improve a little… even by picking up something we wouldn’t have before. By small things we can improve.
Okay. Yes. That’s a little better. And tomorrow I how you’re even better, Earl. SMH.
lil baby steps…
