I've only recently entered the 21st Century, and begun hitting the "like" button on posts - we didn't have like buttons in the dark ages when I first got on the web, we just had smoke signals.

I'm not sure what hitting Like does for a post. Is there some WordPress blogs center where an often-liked post gets moved up the "most popular" list or something?

But what I'm really taking up a comment slot to ask is, what about those thumbs-up and thumbs-down buttons on comments? Because, I see that "Jefferson Davis school in Mississippi to be renamed after Barack Obama" got a thumbs-down from somebody. Is that a thumbs-down on the topic, or is it a thumbs-down on Pete for reporting it?

This is why I don't thumb anything.

…CNN’s Daniella Diaz [joked about] … McConnell … a polio survivor…

Remember when Trump waved his hands while describing a reporter (a gesture Trump had used with others) and the Enemy called him out for mocking someone with a disability?

Now here's CNN merrily mocking the aftermath of polio.

Projection, projection, projection. Just look at what they accuse others of doing to see how they think.

(My late oldest brother was a polio survivor, and although he was "cured," it leaves its mark.)

Two termites. Two ticks. Two mosquitoes. Two chiggers.

But no unicorns.

I've had a very difficult time believing the legend of Noah.

Another hilarious Caturday collection, BoB.

Would your teacher believe you if your excuse was, "The cat ate my thesis"?

I presume that "We tried to kill mommy's friend" has something to do with running underfoot at the top of the stairs, or the like. (Voice of experience.)

Circus Freaks! :)

Here's a thought (always dangerous in my case): Have you ever used any of the characters from that Marvel-DC blendered universe, Amalgam or whatever it was? I guess you'd have to team them up with not-Marvel-or-DC characters. As I said, dangerous to let me think.

You know what I noticed in the pic of the late-night hosts? The diversity! There's a white guy with a beard, and a white guy with glasses, a hefty white guy, a meth user white guy, and a pretty white boy. No wonder they're so beloved of the Inclusiveness Cult and fellow regressives.

…trying to get well-known actresses to give him rubdowns in the nude or trying to get a pass from grabbing the breasts of models…

Now we know who Trump meant, in that locker room conversation years ago, talking about grabby powerful men.

How could this happen to such a ruggedly handsome and debonair fellow as Harvey?


Speaking of perverts, that photoshop of Obama groping the Bergdahls is classic — because, you know, with President Bathhouse, it might've happened. Ex-President in rear-view mirror keeps getting smaller; amen!

The whole reason Columbus kept getting refused a sponsor was because informed sailors and others could tell Chris didn't really have the girth of the planet right. He had to find someone who didn't know the science.

His crew was near mutiny when they stumbled across the Western Hemisphere. Which was fortunate. If they hadn't hit land, they would've all died from starvation. They certainly could never have made India.

CC lived and died never really knowing he'd made the most fortuitous journey in history.

Sorry about the cultural conflict thing, a historic tragedy. However, every AmerIndian with a house, flush toilet, tv, cell, and car can thank Columbus today.

And if it hadn't been for Columbus's ignorance, we would not today have the amusement of differentiating "dot or feather?"

I'm waiting to read the whole comic on the office big screen when I can take my time to give your stories their due attention. BUT...

I just spent some time scrolling around an enlarged view of the front cover. It is great. Every set-up! The one I really want to see is "Westchester." I don't know what's going on in that panel, but the pairings are so evocative, all the different teams and ages those characters represent. A good example of how your cross-company pairings resonate.

Hats off to you, for all the issues, present, past, and, we all hope, a long, fruitful future. You've put your ideas, including kind-of raggedy old ones, out there in the Web, and we're grateful you have.

I think I saw something about a King Kong / Planet of the Apes crossover comic. I thought, does Ross get a cut from that?

I hit the "like" button… but if there was a "not sure if I like it but thumbs up for weirdness" button, I would've hit that instead.


Another great find, Bird.

When that flap-eared dog-eater usurped the Oval Office, I could never listen to him. The push-to-turn-off button on the car radio was hit so hard, the radio is now loose on the left side.

I have yet to encounter a Trump vocalization that came anywhere near causing that reaction. I often actually like and admire what he says. I think I nodded off on one of his taxes or economy talks, but only briefly. He says the right things, in the right ways, treats every person he meets in a convivial fashion, and seems honest.

After almost thirty years of not being able to listen to a President or think very highly of him, I wonder, is Trump really all that different… or I'm just losing it in my dotage.

Gaahhhhh! Good to see that Nancy hasn't fallen for all those botox and facelift dodges to aging. I guess.

Another great round-up, Pete. Thanks as always.

Barnicle said Tuesday that Donald Trump “exhausts” him…

How interesting. Strange to relate, I am not tired of #winning yet. Indeed, reading of Barnicle's exhaustion practically makes me chortle and rub my hands together in fiendish glee.

Thanks especially, Pete, for the Tel Aviv city hall pic.

Oboy oboy oboy, was there ever such anticipation of the next issue? Wow-in advance.

Hope you're pacing yourself. Wouldn't want you to suffer blogger burnout before you reach, oh, #5000 (and beyyyooooond).

RIP Landau. Never watched 1999, but I watched a lot of Mission Impossible.

Glad to know you're okay, Hat. Saw the Gang of Morons was asking about you almost right away.

God help comfort and sustain all the wounded and the grieving.

What Trump sent / What Hillary sent

Heh. At Stilton's place, great list of the aid sent.

You might want to edit "Geary opened fired on the 34th floor" up top. Wasn't Geary.

Also was the 32nd floor, not that that matters.
