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?
(following that unauthorized bit of spelunking a day or so ago)
Gotta love that Rex expression!
Another day, another bunch of Buck so wanting to play catch-up with Rex…
But perhaps things will improve in Rex’s afternoon appointments…
Yes…FUN WITH REX WHEN HE’S PLAYING DOCTOR! Whheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
…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.]
