I'll be the first to cast stones, I don't let sleeping dogs lie

For some reason, Fuzzy's dialogue in panel two really reminds me of Ryan Estrada's comics. I'm not really sure why, but hey... at least it gives me an excuse to plug Ryan's work. (Ryan is awesome.)

I kind of think it would be fun to have a t-shirt that said "When will society stop oppressing me with its unattainable standards?!?", but I'm not sure that I'm the man to make it. What kind of graphic would you pair with that phrase? Whenever I try to think about it, all I can see is tractors. And I'm pretty sure that doesn't make any sense.

It calms my nerves to see that most of you have been digging this Noosehead-related material. It's always a little scary, unleashing something new and unusual on your established audience, but I try my best not to let that fear ever inhibit me from drawing what my brain tells me I should draw. Anyhow, things are about to get even weirder next week, so be sure to tune in on Monday. Until then, have a lovely weekend!

Here's to the message you made of me

I had a lot of fun putting together today's strip. There's not a lot of call for these sorts of comics in Sam and Fuzzy, mind you. But whenever I get the chance to draw a happy, comfortable couple just goofing around with each other, I always have a good time doing it. I guess deep down inside, I'm actually a huge sentimental mush-bag.

Wait... did I just admit that to thousands of internet readers? No, of course I didn't. That was a typo. What I really meant to say was... I love violence. Also, conspiracies. And that's precisely why the special two-hour presentation of 24 on Monday was so awesome.

We're now exactly half way through the show's fifth season, and it still shows no signs of dropping the ball. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Watching the show, you really get the impression that the story is actually going somewhere definite... that the writers actually have a plan and aren't just making it up as they go and padding it out with lame filler subplots. Everything is tying together so well, it is vaporizing my memories of the fourth season's abysmal midsection and so-so ending. This year, they are on fire!

No one ever felt too blue,

Chopping off a hand or two,

Filling crates with gerbil goo,

Those were the daaaayyyysss!

That's to the tune of the All in the Family theme, of course! NOW I'm dating myself. Dating myself to an era in which I wasn't even alive. Bam!

In other news, Claire's frightening Pokemon ebay auction closes later today. I will sleep soundly tonight, knowing that the evil will soon be purged from our household. But hey, maybe you like evil. And at these prices, you'd have to be crazy not to!

I'm sorry. For a second there, I was channeling a dead used-car dealer!
