Snap, Crackle, Ack!

oh160903Don’t worry, Verne isn’t going to really change. He can’t. It’s a comics rule that characters do not develop. They do not grow. They do not arc. See Peanuts. See Calvin & Hobbes. You want your losers to stay losers. You want your scoundrel to keep on scoundrel-ing. And you want your Hammy to keep on hugging.

Sorry Verne. Them’s the rules.

Spleens Are Ticklish

oh160705Notice how this cartoon starts on Earth and ends up somewhere near Jupiter?

Cool, right?

Breaking the Fifth Wall

oh160229I’ve never actually read Mary Worth. Or Garfield for that matter. Actually, I hardly ever read comics at all these days since we stopped getting a daily paper about ten years ago.

Wait. Did I just type that out loud?

Fridge Art

oh150602Maybe we should get these guys to draw our strip.  They look like they may work for cheap. They don’t appear to eat much.

I’m going to stop now.

Plan Nine From Over the Hedge

oh150429 The second panel is pretty cool. Even with the morie effect. I saw the movie Ed Wood, but I’ve never seen Plan 9. Is it as bad as everyone says or is it funny/bad? Sometimes unintentional comedy is funnier than intentional comedy.

Much like many episodes of Over the Hedge.

Hammy Hug Alert

oh140629For the clarity impaired RJ is allergic to hugs. Squishy sentimentality gives him the heebie-jeebies. And hives. And a wart or three.
