When I get begging letters from non-profits I’ve never heard of, full of address labels or whatnot, and provided with pre-paid postage, I figure they don’t actually need any donation. I write “Take me off your list” on the donation slip, and stuff everything, especially the “gifts” they are trying to guilt me with, back into the envelope. Sometimes it takes three or four cycles, but they usually stop.
Doesn’t feel right to see Jason cheating like that.
We used to have a cat like that. He was a male version of Lily, fluffy white with a long fluffy black tail. Unless he was in the right mood, he hated being touched, so his vet folder had big red letters, just like the one in today’s strip, saying BITES!
Coq Au Vin used to be what you did with a chicken that was past her prime. Such birds would be full of flavor, but tough. So after marinating in wine for three days, you’d simmer it for hours with bacon and mushrooms. The recipe in Mastering the Art of French Cooking is practically a whole chapter.With the young chickens in the markets these days, you can get the same mix of flavors much more quickly. And it’s still delicious.
Such a beautifully drawn little loon.
There’s been a lot of Karens getting lambasted on Twitter in the last couple weeks, so there’s any number of incidents this could refer to. Since this comic is only being posted when Keith has something to say, it could have been uploaded as recently as yesterday. So it probably is about the birdwatcher, Christian Cooper. Here’s a lovely interview with him: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/27/nyregion/amy-cooper-christian-central-park-video.html
Or Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by the real Uncle Duke, Hunter S Thompson. Like when they’re checking in their first hotel, and Raoul Duke suddenly realizes they are surrounded by lizard people up to their ankles in blood. It’s hard to see the truth!
That doesn’t sound boring at all!
Maybe that’s why Wallace was so calm about it the whole time.
Every generation has someone who brings the gods back to life. From what I’ve heard, Rick Riordan has told wonderful stories with them. Trust me, he’s read Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. If you’ve read all his books, you should check them out.
