“Huh?” is better than an “I couldn’t hear you” followed by an exposition of activities that are to blame for his lack of hearing me.
When my 2 daughters were little they’d freak out if they discovered backwards and/or inside-out, undies. My 3 grandsons, OTOH, don’t seem to care if they’re even WEARING underpants, never mind whichaway. The 3yo recently spent a happy afternoon with his bluejeans on backwards – and dude, that looked uncomfortable!
This storyline reminds us how difficult it can be for vets. The suicide rate for veterinarians is surprisingly high. There are several theories why this is the case, but all I know is we should genuinely thank our pet’s doctor as often as possible.
Friday we drove from EST to CST, then lost the DST hour Sunday, when we also drove back into EST. There hasn’t been enough coffee yet… ;-)
It’s close to 20 years old, but yeah, you’d think editors or such would have fixed it by now.
Okay, one more comment. If this is directed to me, shame on you. Directed at a few of us? Still shame on you. We are loyal fans who appreciate your work, click on the Like button, share your strips with friends and family on social media, and have commiserated and laughed with you, and admired you. This public attack is way out of proportion to what I (or anyone else) commented, and I have to wonder if, despite appearances, Homeslice has thicker skin than you. Myreaction was to Unfollow because I was shocked when I saw this, but hell no, it’s your tantrum, not mine.
No, I just made an observation, hoping to avoid negativity. Whoops! Dang sure won’t comment on your strip again. ☮️
Dude, I’m apolitical and non-affiliated, especially with my favorite comics. I’ve just seen some crazy hate comments on gocomics.com under the most innocuous comic strips.
I get that this is absolutely a cat joke – Homeslice is thinking like all of our cats would. But high profile political images can bring out the worst (venomous comments, unfollows) in an otherwise devoted fans, so I hope this is a one-off.
It still makes for a better comic strip, whether it had run in the 80s or now, for the reasons I already stated. And I truly suspect girls get away with bullying more than boys, now, but that’s another subject for another day.
