Another rant I wrote

A blog I spend an inordinate amount of time on is the Comics Curmudgeon. On Easter weekend 2007, Johnny Hart of B.C. fame passed away. Even casual readers of the funny pages may be aware that for the later part of Mr. Hart's life, he was an evangelical Christian and sometimes displayed this fact in his comic strips.

Naturally, in the comments at the Comics Curmudgeon, a few different opinions were expressed about Mr. Hart's work. In response to some of the comments, I posted a little rant of my own. I admitted in the rant that I was concurrently angry for unrelated reasons, and I haven't really looked back at my rant until now. And you know what? Although I might have been angry at the time I wrote it, I totally stand by my rant. And since this is my blog, I thought I'd post a link to that rant.

Just in case you aren't reviewing ancient pages on Mudge, here's my reply to #24 on the "secret word" posting:

I used to be secretary in a math department, and one day I asked what the name was for a three-dee rectangle, and that’s the answer I got. I hope I spelled it right. I think this is the first time you’ve asked me about it. I was a straight-A student in math until I hit the wall that is Calculus. My test scores went A, B, C, D, F. One more and they’d have needed a new letter.

the reply to your rant (next entry) is funny

The big long reply to my rant about bathroom attendants? Yeah, that was pretty surreal all right.

By the way, I have gone to that bar a second time, but I drank two bottles of beer really quickly and then just left before ever needing to go to the bathroom.

I was going to comment on that post but the reply came in before I got around to it. I fugured after that the discussion would be dead.

I especially find the attendant weird when you are at the peelers. Why do I want to drop a dollar in a jar for some guy this does not increase my odds of getting lucky. Now the dollar on the stage you feel your doing something to increase the odds. Not that it really helps... unless your in Victoria. (SQB and his brother will get the Vic. reference....)

ah indeed, good stuff but I meant the post immediately below the post where you go off about religion and Johnny Hartpants. The gusy says a bunch of weirdness about Mary Worth boning some Asian guy (I suppose it would be the other way round) and etc.

Yes, there are a lot of in-jokes at the Comics Curmudgeon that are stunningly incomprehensible to the neophyte...
