As Laura read one chapter of the serial at a time to make it last, I read all the comics on the newspaper page whether I like them or not. Usually Get Fuzzy is in the not column, but once in awhile there’s a great one.
A recent strip explored the fact that rennet is in cheese. It came as quite a shock, so I guess he never read Little House in the Big Woods.
My favorite all time strip from them was when Satchel, the dog, sets up an information center about his favorite author and Bucky, the cat, tells him that this is what it’s come down to he’s making shrines to people now. I have to remember that, “It’s NOT a shrine, it’s a media information center.” 😉 Because that doesn’t sound familiar at all.
UPDATED August 12 2017: I still love this comic to death. In fact when the link was dead I spent quite a bit digging for a current link. I did a couple of edits, turned the paraphrase into a quote and added my current signature block.
