    Ok you guys, apparently this strip has been around for a goodly amount of time, but today is my first exposure to it. My parents gave me the name of “Norman” which has caused untold suffering. You see, everyone makes fun of the name. It started in grade school and has continued ever since. The name is an amalgam of “North” and “man” mashed together and leaving out the “th” Norman comes out of it. I tried to trade my name for “George” and even threw in a peanut butter sandwich and 5 Oreo cookies — no sale. If I had the physiognomy of a big bruiser it would have been ok, but when you are a wimpy science major the dating pool dries up quickly. To top it all off an actress even named her dog Norman, one more insult heaped on. Oh, you get used to it after a while, but you never grow to like it. Indeed, the gods can be cruel and capricious. If one has a cross to bear it either strengthens you or crushes you. There are, however, bright spots here and there, most especially the coffee pot in the bedroom. Sheer genius. Keep up the good work.

    Norman Earl (how about that middle name for adding insult to injury?) Baron

    Because it’s a serious world is all the more reason to play in it.

    Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment. HoraceDo the best you can, and don’t take life too serious. Will Rogers

    Life is much too serious to be taken seriously. Vicki Lawrence

    If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it. Herodotus

    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. Elbert Hubbard

    I’ve never really taken anything very seriously. I enjoy life because I enjoy making other people enjoy it. Tim Conway
