See you in the funny papers…

So… I take the New York Times for the news and the Austin-American Statesman for the comics.  I just love the funny papers – it’s the first thing I read when I get home from work, sitting on the deck with a glass of wine or three.

This one, from today’s “Over the Hedge,” speaks volumes about what’s wrong with society today.

And sometimes, they speak to me personally, like this one from “Cul-de-Sac,” (it’s one of my favorites).  I’m not sure it’s good or bad that I identify so closely with Petey Otterloop – it doesn’t help that I was an oboe player and probaby had this exact same conversation with my father many times.

I also highly recommend “Toothpaste for Dinner.”  I’ll be the first to admit I don’t always get them, but this one just spoke to me – I hate ‘group assignments.’

And as noted in other posts, “Mutts” is my absolute favorite.  Earl and Mooch really boil things down to their essential essence.

So my suggestion is, skip the news and head straight for the comics – you’ll be glad you did.
