opened the paper and saw this..... also found it online, so i didnt have to scan anything...
Thank you, WK, for showing me the bright side of all the rain in NYC this spring! I've abandoned my plans to build an ark and will get scuba gear instead.
My, my...all that rain! We got back from our house in Mexico last week...jeez...85 degrees with a nice breeze off the ocean...
sorry, just had to rub it in! :)
you guys arent kidding about the rain....instead of the roughly 3inches of rain in an average may, we got dumped on with 10+.... on the bright side, the 4-5 yr drought is gone.....
Yes!!! PROOF OF THE NORTHWEST TREE OCTOPUS!!! Yippee!!
Or, at least a squibbon...
Sushi and Sake,
this isnt cephy, but i have to throw it in because it confirms EXACTLY what ive been telling people for years.... its nice to have my rants confirmed....(or at least have company in being crazy)
daily laughter is so much more important than accurate facts... (i guess they have neither)
(PS -- I realize Gary Larson has asked that his publications not be reproduced... but this is a one-off, OK methinks)
i have not seen that one in so many years!!! good job
not on a sunday, but still comics....
I've attached this weekend's edition of Skylock Fox, with a true or false quiz about octopuses for the youngsters... answers are below, upside down...enjoy!
I really like that illustration, although it does not seem to have much to do directly with the quiz. I like the idea of the octo mimicking the divers shark cage! Very cute.
Any "Pogo"-philes, out there?
I recall that one of Walt Kelly's "Pogo" stories involved an octopus (referred to as an "octopobble") that took a liking to Howland the Owl, refused to budge from his head and wiled away dull moments by smoking cigars. None of the "Pogo" compendiums I have access to include this story-arc, which I believe ran as a weekday series in the early 1950's.
ANYBODY GOING TO PUBLISH A(ceph) COMIC IN A PAPER?
whassa pogo story?
Pogo was a comic strip drawn by Walt Kelly. Yes, Clem, the octopobble exists, and if we get to visit the right people over the holidays, I might be able to locate the octopobble stories.
Aside from octopobbles, Pogo had a great deal of political subtext, and could be in the propaganda thread if the reader was up on the news contemporary to the strips. Strom Thurmond might be the only one in the comics whom readers today might remember.
Thanks much for providing some "Pogo" background. Fidel Castro did make an appearance, and he might be the last of Kelly's targets still standing. Please do let me know if you come acrost the octopobble, but watch out for ol' Champeen Hoss Head.
Here's a one of mine. :)
I have several others, but all are from The Far Side.
I just love Calvin........what an inquiring and inventive mind that child has!!!!!
Well, this is a Sunday Cartoon, not a comic, but the new episode of The Simpsons had a premise in which Homer builds a suit of armor to fight a bear that attacked him, when Marge objects, Homer sneaks out the next morning with Bart, when Lisa and Marge realize they're gone, they check the "Suit Closet", one of the contents being a: Contry Music Octopus, they then find the bear suit gone, and Marge gets ready to go, but turns around to find that Lisa has donned on the CMO outfit, "Just to see what it was like". Lisa then can't help but get into character by saying "Howdy Y'all! If ya don't like my song, I'm gonna spray you with ink!"
