Truly adorable and hilarious! I will definitely add “Breaking Cat News” to my list. Many thanks to the creator of this comic strip. He has good taste in names. (Naming one of the cat reporters “Elvis.”)
I like this comic! Winston is not a bad boy like Calvin (“Calvin and Hobbs”), but sometimes the dark comics are the funniest ones, especially the British comics. I absolutely adore “Andy Capp,” and “Fred Basset.” I will definitely add “Winston” to my collection.
PS: Does anyone else besides me see a little of the great Winston Churchill in Winston?
Many, many, many thanks Mr. McGarry for choosing Bela Lugosi as your subject for this week’s Biographic strip. He was the only actor who could play Bram Stoker’s vampire. But, did you also know that Lon Chaney Sr. was originally slated to play Dracula after his much-praised performance in the movie “London After Midnight.” But, sadly, Mr. Chaney passed away in August, 1930 after a long bout with lung cancer. When Universal Studios began putting the word out that the lead role was available, Mr. Lugosi beg, pleaded, conjoled, and practically camped outside the studio executives’ office until he got to audition for the Dracula part. Although he won the role that would make him a legend, Mr. Lugosi would pay a terribly huge price for it. For the rest of his career, he was typecast. The worst thing that could happen to any actor.
One other thing about Bela Lugosi that is interesting to note. He and (my favorite horror movie actor) Boris Karloff made 13 movies together. Sadly though, the two men remaind rivals for the rest of their careers, and never became friends. However, the friendship that never materialized between Mr. Lugosi and Mr. Karloff has manefested itself in their children, Sara Jane Karloff, Bela Lugosi Jr., and the grandson and great-grandson of Lon Chaney Sr. and Lon Chaney Jr., Ron Chaney.
Hold Everything!!!! Here’s the entire solution as to how Luann should approach Quill. “Hi Quill. How’s everything with you? I received your letter. What did you want to talk to me about?” It’s short, friendly, and most importantly straight to the point.
If you go on Wikipedia and type in “I just had the sex talk with my kids. Boy, did I learn a lot!” I’d love to know just for giggles.
I think it may have been the late Buddy Hackett, but don’t hold me to it.
