Do you actually live in this world?
You use this phrase so often, it makes me wonder if this is an actual issue for you.
I think you need another hobby.
And then from 10/16/2017, we get:
Careful — when I dared to question Howtheduck last week, several people took great offense. Why is another question.
It look a little while to track this down. I was afraid I had missed someone asking me a question, because I love a good question and would hate to think that I had missed an opportunity for discourse.
Finding your actual comment, it was a little disappointing. It wasn’t a question at all but just another person taking a cheap shot at me. It is a common thing on this board in particular for people to do that and I guess you must have figured if you did that then other people would just pile on (as they often done in the past), and it would just another “howtheduck is stupid” festival.
Me personally, I was gratified that didn’t happen. I prefer a good dialogue and I like it when people call other posters on their cheap shots. So, as to why they took great offense, it’s obvious to me and I suspect it is obvious to you too.
I love these kinds of strips. Let’s see what we have:
1st row (left to right)
Can’t read the name. Something with a space ship launching into space.
Wow. A cereal bowl with a shadow that indicates the bowl has jumped into the air.
Something Doos – With what appears to be 2 shrunken heads
Sugar Soggs – A clown face with a dog nose.
Honey Zonks – Featuring a maniacal face, a disembodied hand holding either a pizza cutter or a scooper with cereal in it.
Mallow Munchies – A happy person with an open mouth and their nose in the air throwing cereal above their head.
Unknown: Good for you when milk added.
Unknown: 100% Nutrition Free.
Oats and Groats
2nd row (left to right)
BLAM!! With a picture of a mushroom cloud. (This is actually my favourite one.)
Choko Chunk-A-Roo – It looks like either a man in blackface or one of those Dia de los Muertos skeletons
Fruissy Wootoies – Look like series of animal heads in a cereal bowl
Karamel Koated Sugar Poofs –with a cloud-like thing around the word Poofs
Captain Calories – A pirate with missing teeth, an eye patch, and a missing jawline.
Fruit Toots – Featuring a bowl with a snake and bird battling on top of the cereal
Nootra Bran Vitamins Minerals – instead of bowl, we get a pot with handles on both sides holding cereal.
Whole Grain Cereal – with a picture of a grain sack with wheat stalks popping out.
Shredded Wheat: Smiley-faced Sun licking his lips in anticipation as he eats a bowl of cereal.
3rd row(left to right)
Sugar something. That’s all I can see.
In the cart:
The Weenie World story stank. It actually made me feel sorry for Ann. Borderline Books was odd. This one has the added intrigue of finding out how old Ann is and how she is related to everyone. It may be too early to call, but so far this one is the best.
I thought she was through the door last week. Now she appears to be regressing.
After that silver was a race horse. And I wish she were mine.
I agree with you completely. “wistful” is an excellent description.
Well she is speaking to her father, the nonparent of the family, who almost never does anything with his kids, so no answer is expected.
LIttle Lizzie has a message for you about how grown-ups should treat people. I recommend you consider it for yourself. Sometimes 8-year-old cartoon characters know more than you do.
I assume you missed the downward lip line?
Nope. This is exactly why I compared the situation to the one two weeks ago where Mike was explaining to John about Martha and her game-playing. John had the same expression on his face. It’s not just how the expression is typically drawn, but how the artist typically draws it.
