    Reminds me of the time when the Catholic Church turned to selling Indulgences (a sort of “Get out of jail (Purgatory) free” card) to raise money. The corruption was so egregious that it inflamed Martin Luther to write his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517, thus kick-starting the Protestant Reformation. Sigh, Martin, where are you when we need you now?

    How about “msickquatash,” (Narragansett Indian word) aka succotash, a vegetable dish of corn, beans and squash, the Three Sisters, which the natives cultivated together in distinct mounds.

    Snuggling, particularly when initiated by the dog, is diametrically opposite to having a being, many times your own size and weight, pick you up, wrap their (huge) arms around you, and squeeze. There they are—trapped, immobilized, and for all they know, about to be squeezed to death. So much better to let them do the snuggling, on their own terms, at their own time. Besides, most dogs will respond to a human’s invitation to snuggle, so if a human “needs a hug”, the dog will usually be happy to oblige, without needing to be held and squeezed.

    Hmmm … I thought Banana Triangle took place outside our space-time continuum. Why should our cosmic interference affect them? Unless, of course, it’s their cosmic interference.

    Last year I picked up a few dozen skeins of a silk-cashmir yarn blend with plans to make “something” when I retired in Nov. Since then, thanks to Stay at Home and retirement, I’ve knitted about 15 beautiful scarves … Etsy here I come!

    Clay didn’t say it. Melania said it … why should you expect anything more from her?

    She ought to be thankful she’s First Lady, otherwise the Donald would have dumped her for a newer model years ago. She is getting a little long in the tooth for that D.O.M. she’s married to.

    Flowcharts are lousy at designing job flow … “no battle plan survives contact with the enemy”. As a computer programmer for 40 years, I never used flowcharts to plan my programs, only to document them after they were written and successfully deployed, and then only because some higher-ups thought they were a “good thing to have”. I had better luck using simple outlines that were easy to understand and easy to reorganize as I encountered the “enemy”, i.e., the realities of making a computer do what I wanted it to.

    Don’t count on it. Besides, Twilight Zone had to wrap in 30 minutes (minus commercial breaks), so it usually came to some kind of conclusion. This strip will continue as long as Beutel wants to draw it. More weird and convoluted stuff awaits us.

    But only to villains. To those he loves he’s an adorable marshmallow … a marshmallow with lethal capabilities.
