    Galapagos apparatus? To stop the end of the world? Where did that nonsense come from? Here is what Wongmug said Back on 9/11: “We believe that the tortoises used a sharp stick to get juice from the native cacti. If true, it would reveal new insight about the intelligence of animals”. A stick is not an “paratus” and he makes no mention that they are trying to save the world from destruction. Really sloppy storytelling.

    This is a repeat of a late-night post toGent, who lamented about the lack of adventure in this “adventure” strip:

    “You definitely hit the nail on the head as there is a real dearth of adventure strips out there. A good adventure yarn relies on conflict between the hero and some adversary or some type of physical challenge against the elements with the reader anticipating how the hero will get out of his or her dire predicament. In each of the three stories brought by the new artistic team there has been a lack of any conflict making the strip as boring as all get out. Peppered with unfunny repetitive jokes (how often can Alley get tortoise / turtle mixed up, when once was more than enough), the strip careens around like an errant pinball before reaching the inevitable TILT. Our hero, once a shrewd and tactically adept problem solver, is now nothing more than a wise-cracking kleptomaniac. It is really hard to have a true adventure strip in the modern world but this strip with the time-travel element has wide-open possibilities. It’s too bad that Joey has no clue on how to take advantage of those possibilities.”

    Just 15 strips added this week. another bad week. There are now 1,941 Hamlin strips spread over 13 years from Hamlin’s 40-year tenure.

    Maybe better to say none of them have been heard from since they haven’t been given any dialogue.

    Guz appeared on 1/7 and 1/8 but I think that’s it. And we’re still waiting for Oscar Boom and Dr. Bronson to show up in the modern world.

    Probably because she meets so many Glabellas that it is hard to keep them straight.

    Are you talking about Oop? I didn’t know he was related.

    Prompted by your post, I just watched the first episode of the six-part “Ruby Yacht”. Now that is a pun. “Galapago” hardly so and decidedly not funny.
