    Dear Teresa 

    Thank you for using your cartoonistry to remind us, “It’s mighty nice to be important, but more important to be nice.” 

    Sincerely,  

    Rotifer’s Mother

    Dear Teresa

    Thank you for reminding us it’s mighty nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

    P.S. Those two nice gentlemen are just friends, right?

    Dear Ms. Burritt

    May I offer a gentle correction to an today’s entry on the Flog?*

    That was MY Top Ten list, not my son’s (as I recall he was on a spaghetti bender the entire month of December 2016 and wouldn’t have known a keyboard from a hole in his head the size of a bread basket).

    Sincerely,

    Rotifer’s Mother

    * A portmanteau of “Frog” and “Blog”

    Oh dear. If Rotifer sees this he’ll wear the numbers off the Olive Garden Pasta Pass “someone” (I’m looking at you, Teresa) got him for Christmas.

    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. 

    Sincerely,  

    Rotifer’s Mother

    (there, I fixed it for You)

    P.S. Cousin Glenola sends her best and to say she’s thrilled FA will live to lame another day.

    Dear Ms. Burritt 

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

    Sincerely,

    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.

    Sincerely,

    Rotifer’s Mother
