As a fair-skinned person (Sunday's Non Sequitur)

Nq glynn

I was delighted to see this comic in my Sunday newspaper.

I don't want to alarm you, but I'm so fair-skinned that people will often say to me, "you're so freakin' transparent," "I can see right through you and your stupid agenda," and/or "why are you eating mayonnaise right out of the jar?"

Thanks for providing me with some much-needed sanctuary, Wiley Miller.

Hands off my tailpipe!


Now, everyone knows I'm a bit of a gear-head and, yes, I am the recording secretary of my Classic Chevette Car Enthusiast Club, but I have to draw the line somewhere. 

So, I will not hesitate to call the authorities if I see these dog/wolf hybrid characters hanging around our parking garage. And don't get me wrong, I like to think I'm an openminded guy, but I think a man's tailpipe should not be tampered with.

Yo! You near Philly on October the 8th?

Lio monster socks

Mark Tatulli will be in the Deptford, N.J. Barnes & Noble on October 8 signing copies of his new Lio collection, "There's a Monster in My Socks." You really should go. Mark can be awfully charming when he wants to be.

On her way!

Anna nutshell

My daughter came home with this school worksheet last week, and after I called a spelling tutor, I chuckled. You see, when Anna grows up she wants to be a "croostns" which is her way of saying "cartoonist." Now, the reason I laughed is because she's already spelling like a cartoonist! Right? Who's with me?! Anyone? 

Good times. True story.

Bolling will have you 'bolling' over with laughter ... and quiet contemplation

Ttdb carousel

I've seen Ruben at many a show, perhaps most notably at the Christopher Hewitt memorial fundraiser "Drink Belvedere (Vodka) for Belvedere" ... and where someone from the "Mr. Belvedere" cast drank a little too much and ended up with a torn shirt and a very bad attitude (I promised no names, so to all those guessing Ilene Graff, "no comment") .

Anyway, you really should go see Tom the Dancing Bug's Ruben because he can incite a crowd to do a lot of strange stuff and he'll make you laugh and think and then laugh again.

NPR's Ira Glass on his favorite childhood books

Doonesbury chronicles
From The New York Times Book Review interview of Ira Glass last weekend: 


So all the books I loved as a kid were comic books; “Peanuts Treasury” as a little kid. It defined the emotional climate of my elementary years. I completely identified with the loneliness and melancholy of Charlie Brown. And “Doonesbury Chronicles” was a revelation to me when I was in middle school. I’d never met people like the ones in “Doonesbury,” or a world like that where the people were so smart and talked about politics and the stuff they talked about.

Vive L' Otterloops!

Richard Thompson's accomplished more than most cartoonists ever have, he invented Ernesto Lacuna and a boy with a head shaped like a bucket, and I ask where would we be today if he hadn't.

Thank you, Richard.

Tom the Dancing Bug Classix ... every Thursday

Ttdb classix

If you're like me and you like your humor like you like your Diet Orange Fanta (in large doses and repeatedly), you should be delighted to know that Tom the Dancing Bug's Ruben Bolling has agreed to run a TTDB classic every Thursday. 

Now, I've been a TTDB fan since way back, but I'd always been hamstrung by how to access all his wonderful and brilliant and also wonderful archives. Frankly, I'm far too busy to click the back button or use the calendar function on GoComics, so this could not have come at a better time. 

Thank you for your munificence, Mr. Bolling!
