Creepy Planets

Hedge05262018T did an odd late night rewrite on this one. Here’s the original script:

6. 
RJ, Verne, Hammy on the log. 
H:  Why is that star not twinkling? 
V:  It’s not a star it’s the planet Venus.  
——————–
V:  The light source is closer and larger and isn’t refracted as much by our atmosphere.  
————————
H:  Translation please. 
RJ:  Planets can’t blink. 
——————————
H:  That’s so sad!  
RJ (eyes wide):  And super creepy. 
V:  My mouth opens. Words come out. Nothing happens. 
The gist is still there. Punch line is the same. But the beginning is unnecessarily confusing.  I can concede that Hammy saying, “Translation please,” is a bit mature for him, but I think it’s okay and helps sell the gag.
Grumble.

Universal Rheostat

Hedge02242018We live out in the country, but the light pollution from Austin and San Marcos is bad and getting worse. We can see a lot of stars to the west, but not much anywhere else. Just occasionally on a crisp, cold, clear night can you still see the Milky Way.

Hedge02112017We’re all made of star stuff.

Therefore we’re all made of star shake.

Fair Weather

Hedge10062017Did you enjoy RJ as the victim this week? I’m sure you did. We all grieve for Verne. Even me. But don’t get used to it. We can occasionally twiddle the creative knobs, but we can’t flip a switch and upend the strip.

We all wanted Charlie Brown to kick Lucy in the head instead of the football. But he never did. Ever. Why? Because he would stop being Charlie Brown. And then the universe would end. And it WOULD ALL BE YOUR FAULT YOU SENSITIVE SNOWFLAKE YOU!

So, I expect a cow to fall on Verne very soon.

For sake of the universe.

Q.E.D.

Doug’s a Star

Hedge09092017I’m going to look into that star registry thing and register Doug on behalf of Hammy. I’ll get back to you.

Sorry, Verne.
