    Dear Ms. Burritt* 

    This concerns your recent entry on your new/old blog thingy and your request for comments about jumping or jiving or some such regarding the FA archive.  

    When the Research Department at the Frog Applause™ – Rotifer Thalweg Gocomics Appreciation Society (“FARTGAS”) was helping me prepare for the Frog Applause™ 10th Anniversary Extravaganza by digging deep for interesting words and phrases coined or sampled by FA over the years, I believe we did read every FA all the way back to its inception (including that now famous reference to “snail caviar”). 

    Speaking of “digestible proportions”, we (the royal “we”) have boanthropy, which required us to take frequent breaks to graze in the back pasture. Therefore we did not do this all in one sitting.  

    Unfortunately, all the research notes were destroyed when Rotifer’s stash of illegal untaxed Italian sourced pasta self ignited last year, and we can’t locate the notes to provide you with the exact dates of any FA strips that were referenced in the FA 10th Anniversary Extravaganza.

    Dear Ms. Burritt 

    The joke’s on you (potlucks organized by Cousin Glenola and I always had average attendance (at least)).

    Dear Mr. Tour

    With all due respect, I do know a little something about mothers and their preferences.

    For example, I love Teresa because she’s talented and generous and kind and strong. I love Rotifer because I’m his biological mother and nature dictates there be a bond.

    Your father and I debated about selling you to the gypsies right after you were born, but we decided to sell your z to them instead.

    Dear Teresa 

    As you may recall, I belong to the Church of Arkantology. We believe in reading scripture every day (The Encyclopedia of Arkansas – I believe you are familiar with it – you referred to it many years ago).  

    Anyhoo, when I read the following passage yesterday I was reminded of you: 

    “Geologist Hugh Dinsmore Miser, who had a mineral named after him in 1950, was born in Pea Ridge and attended Pea Ridge Normal School. The Pea Ridge Mule Jump and Show was founded in 1985 and draws spectators from many surrounding states.” 

    Now, a mule jump is not a goat rodeo, but it’s still a cracker jack of a sporting event!

    Re: Everything in Moderation

    Dear Ms. Bee

    Those are words to live by.

    P.S. With one exception: squirrel treachery. Moderation in the eradication of squirrel treachery is no virtue. Extremism in the pursuit of chicken and dumpling breaks is no vice.
