If we are few, we are loyal, and appreciative.

Ah, yes! How people had fun in the pre-digital era!

I'll never forget when Grampaw would hitch up the hippo and we'd ride to town and point and laugh at the PIckle Quartet. We let the littlest armed boy gangs have the biggest fireworks, because we knew as smokers they'd have matches.

:eek:

BoB: In that case, maybe I should leave it where it is.

Just delete it, yeah. Well, I say that and then think: except for my curiosity about whether there was anything to it?

Should I be worried?

I didn’t cut and paste a link to naughty pictures, I pray. That wasn’t me. I was hacked that day. Yeah. Russian bots. Paid for by Hillary.

BoB: Your earlier comment ended up in the spam, mindful. Would you like me to fish it out for you?

Heh. I don't know what got sent, but I know it wasn't what I meant. I recall a cut'n'paste error plus immediate send - an all-thumbs production. This is on my good days.

(Seems another comment of mine didn’t get through. It’s prob’ly not you. It’s me. Or my computer? Let’s say both and try again. Heh.)

I like McCoy, and I ought to get back to following his comic strip and political cartoons. This cartoon is nice work. I ♥ cartooning. Much can be conveyed in simplest symbolism.

Oddly, while the style (to the trained comic geek’s eye) is McCoy’s, the idea seems like something Pirarro (Bizarro) or Larson (Far Side) would have come up with, except I doubt they’d have the same Christian inspiration as McCoy.

(I think this didn’t previously post because I had the geek spew filter on.)

Messed up trying to leave a comment earlier. Glad it didn’t seem to have gone through.

Happy Easter, PoliNationals. (PoliNators?) We got to have Easter with my Mom, and all three of our offspring, and our 8mo grandson. (DiL couldn’t make it, and probably appreciated the break.) We had supper, we played with the very alert little baby, and talked about Resurrection morning. Nice.

When that rock started rollin’, a contingent of hearty, burly Roman soldiers, and no doubt nearly as hearty and burly Temple guards, found out just how fast they could go from bored to terrified, and how quickly they could run back to the city for fresh underwear.

Greatest What-If comic ever?

What If the original Marvel bullpen had been the Fantastic Four. Flo Steinberg as the Invisible Girl.

I learned something today… maybe.

"…Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails…" doubted Thomas. Historically, Jesus was wounded in the hands, and always so depicted in art, whether on the cross, risen showing Thomas, or stigmata in various appearances.

As I studied the gory facts of crucifixion, though, it seemed most sources frankly said that the Romans actually pierced the wrists, because the hands would just tear under the weight. The Shroud of Turin, which shows the back of the hands of the man in the image, has apparent blood stains on the back of the wrist.

Well, I saw someone comment today that the Romans would have pounded the nail into the hand, angled, and out through the wrist. That sounded about right. Oh, that expert torture-dealing touch the Romans had!

There's not a lot I learn about the crucifixion that doesn't just break my heart more for what he went through for us.

Yeah, I really needed these. I've been feeling the years lately. Problems of health, finance, family. At least I still have my… what was I saying?

I try to remember to stay thankful, so the Almighty doesn't get too fed up with the constant begging, whining, and faithless, fearful freaking out that passes for prayer for me.

Wow. I'm throwing the "doubtful" flag on that Rockefeller quote. (Not bothering to search on it, though. I'm that lazy.) (Busy. I meant busy.)

Of course, I'd be doubtful of ol' LBJ's classic remark about keeping the ni@@ers voting Democrat except it's apparently true.

Heh. Deer snowplows.

Down here in NE Oklahoma, our local deer pack is nibbling on green shoots. All the trees are budding out. Bradford pears already flowering. Crocuses blooming. We've had a little rain this week to take the edge off the drought (barely), more in the forecast, but never had a serious snow this winter.

Oh. Uh. Snow is nice, too, though, as I recall. :D

Um…

Our nice winter doesn't mean we can't have a week of arctic temperatures, ice storms, and a couple feet of snow in April. All depends on the wind direction.

Then there's the whirlwinds.

Happy Vernal Equinox.

I don't have TV sources. If I see anything from the LaughingStock Media, it's some clip uploaded by Mark Dice or someone. Most of the news celebrities are names I barely know.

I also don't tweet nor twit but see only what folks link to in tweetville.

What I like in the tweets above is the levelness of the playing field. Whatever some ABCBNBSCNN overpaid minion blithers, there's hearty countering retorts galore (at least until Twitter bans 'em). Zzzzing!

Daily reader, rare commenter here (CCComments is so busy). Had to chime in because...

Hi & Lois: Well! I certainly didn't expect you to go there! Oh my!

I expected attention to how Hi starts off full of joyous anticipation of nicer days, and panel by panel Lois dismantles his elevated mood until the penultimate panel, where Hi is anticipating endless winter.

Then as they stand their, mired in existential misery, their baby, unnoticed and unattended, wanders off.

Great family strip.

Jay042 said, "I tend see the new Tick as kind of like Adam West's Batman stuck in the world of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies."

I thought the main character was played like Christopher Walken channeling Adam West. This is not either the old cartoon or the previous live-action series. Yes, it's more straight-up and "Dark Knighted," but the Tick remains the solid, true-blue :) hero we've always known. Gets many great lines.

Recently saw a Justice League Action (?or something) with Krypto and it kinda worked as not-corny or campy. This excellent team-up cover has the same feeling - it's not easy to make Superdog work. :)

Well, to start with, big deal. The Simpsons predicted President Trump a decade and a half ago! :)

As to the fellow predicting Pres Trump - my tablet is dying and I have no sound so I can't watch the vid until I get to a real computer... so forgive me if this is covered, but.... but...

Is the video from six years ago? Or recent and he's saying he predicted it six years ago? Because saying, after something happened, that you predicted it... yeah, I do that all the time. (Best Jon Lovitz liar voice: "Yeah, I predicted Trump would win before he even announced. Yeah. That's right.") ;)

Best example of prediction on that race is still Ann Coulter, sitting there dead-panned after saying Trump would win, and all the folks laughing like that was the greatest joke...!

Also, I absolutely detest Daylight Saving Time. #NoDST

“Disney’s $100 million gamble to turn the classic children’s book 'A Wrinkle in Time'…"

There was an adaptation years ago which I remember as being pretty close to the books. I have to dig my copy from the catacombs (it may be on some antiquated medium - probably zip drive or 8" floppy), but I think it was this 2010 movie on iMDB. If you can find it!

Enjoyed the book as a young teen, enjoyed reading it with Milady early in our days together, enjoyed reading the whole series with our kids. I'm blocking this remake out the way I did the Miracle on 34th Street remake with the Jurassic Park old guy (instead of the REAL Santa Claus of the original movie). They learned nothing from "Womyn Ghostbusters." And why would you mess with Meg, already one of greatest women heroes in literature?

I'm surprised to find there's some debate on the "Christian vs not" of Wrinkle in Time. But there is similar debate about Lord of the Rings and probably Narnia, so…

The heart of the first book, for me is, when one of the witches is transporting the kids, they reach a point where they can look back and see our world, along with other worlds, enveloped in a great shadow, but that from this new perspective, they can see that the shadow is a very small blot in proportion to the universe of light.

Because that's universal truth right there.
