Man! Let my Penguin go!

But I must confess- I have switched my allegience to Get Fuzzy.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I remember Bloom County being pulled from my home paper about every other weekend.
Of course it was the Alabama border, so they were probably turned off by the fact it had talking animals.
Those things are trouble. Particularly Penguins.
I stand corrected, you are as vapid as they say.

Opus is jealous because the horse upon which Mohammed flew to heaven had wings that work.

If this has stressed out Berk Breathed, I'd personally like to offer him a relaxing massage.

What's wrong with that?


People are too uptight.

mmmmmm Naked Amish Suicide Bombers!
It bothers me that Muslim Fundamentalists can make us give up freedom of speech so easily. We allow this to happen, we don't deserve the right! So we can offend and joke about Christians, Jews, Buddists, Atheists, Hindus, and those wacky Wiccans but oh dear, watch where you step, with the Muslims!
Time to grow some balls!

The Denver Post also ran it. How long for the "How dare you!" letters to come filtering in?

Buffalo New ran it, too! I thought it was great.

I love Opus and his friends.
Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?

Sacramento Bee ran it. And it's all about Pearls Before Swine, anyway.
One time, Patti LuPone punched me in the face...


It was awesome.
