On the surface this Frank and Ernest from last week appears to be a joke about the invention of the wheel. But I couldn't help but see a nice tribute to the marriage of two true syndicates, United Features and Universal Uclick. Hard to believe that it's already been three months since our little syndicate starchild came into existence. And even harder to believe that it's been over 21 years since the Mazda Miata hit the market. But that's a whole different blog post! In conclusion, as a wise group of fifth graders once sang/rapped: "Don't hate / collaborate / Because / We think it's great."

Today's comic is from the unreprehensible Dave Blazek (Phila., PA). Dave works at the newspaper in Philadelphia and has an amazing sense of humor and a lovely wife. Dave is not a very good limbo dancer because he constantly sets the bar too high.
And, Dave, two follow-up questions:
1) Would you prefer a signed 8 x 10 of me rollerblading in an oversized sombrero and velvet pants in color or black and white?
