    As someone who left Facebook 13 days ago, this is oddly familiar to me. :-)

    I just found you on Instagram and followed.

    I don’t know what happened to your arrangement here and that’s none of my business, but it floors me to see you leave this syndicate. I know it’s nightmarishly difficult to be picked up by newspapers these days, but your gags and art style are so original that they deserve more exposure. I’m a former newspaper editor and publisher, so I know the pressure to stick to things that are already popular and not take a chance on comics that are new to a market.

    From a financial point of view, it seems like a terrible time to be a cartoonist, but as a wannabe filmmaker, I also know that if you absolutely have to do the work — for yourself, if nothing else — you have to keep plugging away.

    Maybe this is a good time to revisit your old dream of being a bank teller, even though that would break your parents’ hearts, from what I see on your website. :-)

    Good luck. You’re talented enough that your work deserves wider exposure.

    This is genuinely disturbing, Tim. Will you continue to have cartoons posted elsewhere that we can visit instead?

    I also found myself thinking that the upper range was a little too easy to simplify in order to make the joke work, but I suppose it depends on who’s comfortable with middle school math and who sees it as scary. :-)

    This is an excellent solution, Georgia. It’s brilliant and I know it’s going to delight others who’ve been reading from the beginning, as I’ve been. As soon as I saw yesterday’s strip, I was pretty sure where you were going, but your solution was more elegant than I came up with. Really great work. :-)

    This is one of the sweetest and most touching strips you’ve done in a long time, Georgia. By the time we realize what’s going on at the end, I suspect we were all filling in what our own family cat genealogy would be. I certainly was. It’s a beautiful concept and it’s superbly executed. Thanks.

    I can identify with this one so much that it hurts my heart while my head laughs. :-)

    Every one of us who’s ever had a creative hankering probably understands this, except for the few who make it big. For me, writing and filmmaking certainly don’t pay. Not yet. :-)

    I suspect almost all of us can identify with this. I certainly can. :-)

    The dialect used in the first panel is stereotypical “mafia speak.” It’s very correct for mimicking the stereotypical dialect of mobster minions talking to their boss.
