…but don’t tell me that BMcE couldn’t draw the face of an orgasmic woman.

Unless he’s never seen the face 0–oh, never mind.

…that we’ve seen in 9 Chickweed Lane (and Pibgorn), is this really a surprise?

New CL

So. We’ve determined that there is only one virgin in New Hampshire.  And counting…

Oh, fine. Now we have the honeymoon to deal with.

The Comics Curmudgeon‘s faithful Poteet knows a metric butt-ton of the flora, fauna and ecology of the Great Plains (weren’t they the three fairy godmothers in Sleeping Beauty, too?).  Always striving to increase her knowledge beyond those horizons (yes, even beyond the state line of Lu Ann Powell’s beloved East Dakota), when she suggests that a certain comic strip could be improved by substituting elephant seals for the current characters, who am I to dispute this Great Notion?

Some species have it:  consider gorillas, orangutans, lions,  most species of sea lions and seals, elephants — the males far outsize the females.

Oh, yeah, the people in 9 Chickweed Lane, too.

(No, I can’t explain Amos.)

…the cute girl veterinarian was vindicated, the bad farmers were hit with bats…yes, This is New Hampshire justice!  As someone recently comments over at The Comics Curmudgeon, “I’m not going to read this strip anymore; I’m just going to look at the pictures.”

Still, it might be a good idea to do so at your own risk.

When Brooke McE did A Midsummer Night’s Dream, did he screw with it as much as he’s doing with Romeo and Juliet?  Big fights missing, Prince Paris suddenly a major character, no sign of Mercutio and Tybalt, etc.  I’m thinking that frolicking with a comedy is a lot easier than dealing with a tragedy, since his strips are mostly humorous (well, that’s what we’ve been told), so using one of his stock character that will die (according to Will) may be hitting a little too close to home.

I think, if the casting process is still going on, that Mercutio and Tybalt should be played by Solange and Edward, sinct Tybalt refers to himself as “the Prince of Cats.”  Well, that’s what Will says.  Maybe he’s just a beefwit. As are we all beefwits.

[I hang my head in something sorta like shame to admit that I find Paris hot.]

…Shakespeare was fun while it lasted (as in, “not turgid,” “not insufferable,” etc.).

…and Brooke MacEldowney can be forgiven a lot of things because of his cats.

…and the tiny gato reminds me of Bete Noire in the old Gordo comics.
