    MW I wondered about what Vera did too, and decided that the simple explanation is probably what happened.

    Vera had a pregnancy scare and told Von that she didn’t want to have sex with him any more.

    Dick Tracy’s Crimestopper’s Textbook
    Today’s Lesson: How To Look At Online Animal Porn And Not Get Caught By The Wife Or Infernal Affairs.
    Well…as you know, things haven’t been going too well between and Mrs Detective Tracy of late. So. In order to ease the tension from the ol’ Luger, if you know what I mean, Yours Truly has had to go to the world of online pornography.
    Damn. There’s a lot of weird shit there, i’ll tell ya that for nothing. Even caught some pics of Detective Fox f*ckin’ a perp named Cassandra Cat. That chick’s nothin’ but trouble, but trouble in a good way, if you know what I mean…heh, heh, heh…
    Damn. Three pairs of tits.
    Anyway…
    Should you be at home, perusing the said materiel, and the Mrs. catches you at it, remember this rule.
    1. Blame The Kid.
    I tell ya, if the internet had been around when we were raising Junior, i’d have planted this on his pasty ass first thing. Bonnie never gave us this type of problem so that was out. Sadly, Joe had to take the fall for this one, but it’ll teach him something, a life lesson. Life ain’t fair, as Jimmy Carter used to say. He was sensible for a liberal. Anyway, look all suprised and say. “Tess. Call our “son” in here right now. Just LOOK at what he’s been looking at…” and take it from there.
    Should you be doing this at work, and ….well, if it had been at work, it wouldn’t have been a problem. The previous Chief was my old partner back in the day, and God knows he used to slam the ol’ ham during off hours…but I digress.
    Should the newly promoted female type Chief catch you at this, remember three words.
    I’m Logging In Evidence.
    Whups…guess that’s really four words. But you get the idea. This works pretty well for the nosy fucks in Infernal Affairs as well. And if it doesn’t, simply promise them a one hour shopping trip in the evidence locker. That’ll get ‘em off your back.
    Well, that’s it for now. Until next time..
    Dick Tracy.
    Damn , that Cassandra’s a fine babe. I’ll have to ask Detective Fox if she’s got a sister.
    Six tits…wow….

    I just want to go on record (you can look up the yesterthread from a couple of days ago, back when the original Casandra Cat porn sketch was referenced) that I was the one who noticed that anatomically-correct Casandra Cat porn needed more breasts!

    In retrospect, I kind of wish I’d left the artist a comment about my opinion regarding multiple pairs of breasts; while they may be anatomically correct for a cat, strictly speaking, they’re off-model for Cassandra Cat, and they look pretty weird, besides. Though, the picture as a whole is weird to begin with, and good for it, so maybe that’s more of a perk than anything else?

    That said, the fact that Slylock has switched from his “O” face to staring at her with those vacant, dead eyes of his is just too damned perfect.

    update on the term “bogart”- the act of keeping something that should be shared, specifically a joint or spliff.

    Popularized by the song “Don’t Bogart That Joint” sung by the Fraternity of Man, which was used in the soundtrack for “Easy Rider”. It played while Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, and Jack Nicholson smoked a joint while sitting around a campfire.

    The Little Feat version is on their live album “Waiting for Columbus”, recorded years later.

    Certainly somone among the Curmudgeon College of Cardinals who has (far more advanced than mine) computer skills can save this Cassandra Cat Pron and hack it into chron.com some Sunday in the future when everyone else on the planet has forgotten about it. A true geek out there (I suspect you know who you are) can send it to newspapers to print.

    The Curmudgeon 300′s attack on Canada, even the crashing of Shawna-Marie’s wedding is a couple of magmacannons-in-hock short of genuine mega-snarkiness, even if Chennux wears that prom dress he bought at a mall in Iowa City a few weeks ago.

    And (just to be curmudgeonly for a moment) anyone who has to ask the question, “What does ‘Bogart’ mean?” needs to run, not walk, to Netflix (okay, sorry for the non sequitur) and screen “Easy Rider.”

    To today’s eyes, it’s a quaint look into a time long passed and may seem a bit silly. But it’s the movie that made Jack Nicholson a star.

    And when I walked out of the theater after seeing it for the first time, some redneck said to his mousy wife, “An’ them sonsabitches got just what was comin’ to ‘em.”

    Um…in the spirit of maybe shifting conversation away from furry porn, I’m going to make a few comments about Wednesday’s comics. Feel free to go along with me on this. No, seriously, GO ALONG WITH ME ON THIS:

    Funky Winkerbean: I don’t know why, but I’m just assuming that every one of the censored words out of her mouth is a racial slur of some kind. Perhaps I’m just picking up on how much Batiuk despises these kids and letting it make me hate them too. Man, who would’ve thought that I’d be wishing we’d get back to people dying of cancer?

    A3G: So apparently in Gabriella’s theology, angels are granted the powers of having a key to a door and standing around helplessly while a doctor treats a patient. Somehow I’m getting the feeling that her edition of the bible comes in pop-up book format.

    Mark Trail: AAAAAH! GIANT DUCKS! SO SCARY! I was about to ask whether it was Sam Hill or Mark who was asking where they came from, but judging from that first panel, they’re both so heavily medicated that they wouldn’t notice a giant duck if it started taking turns at their controls…so I guess the plane’s the one asking the question after all.

    Rex Morgan: Oooh, arty layout today. It’s not making me care any more about who Hugh Avery’s co-conspirator is (I guess it’s a guy, and in an earlier strip he was wearing a ring?), but I appreciate any effort they make to improve this stultifyingly dull storyline. Personally, I think they’d have done better to just put June Morgan in a bikini, but maybe they’re saving that for later. We can only hope.

    Mary Worth: I know I said earlier that Von and Vera would kiss and make out make up by Thursday, thereby giving us a week or more for the tedious recapping of all the NOTHING that has happened in this stupid storyline…but I was really hoping that prediction wouldn’t end up being true. Anyway, uh, way to go Vera. Congratulations on your four-cent-per-hour raise at your crappy typist job. Way to climb that corporate ladder, I guess.

    Looks like the Chron site got fuXX0r3d about halfway through, so what follows is abbreviated snarkage.

    A3G: Generic Bland Unnamed “Hoo Boy” Doctor — eh, let’s just go ahead and call him Dr. Hoo — appears awfully glad that Tommie is around to distract Gabriella, thus sparing him the ignominy of having to converse with the possibly unsanitary, patois-babbling ethnic stereotype. I haven’t seen a doctor move that fast since Rex Morgan heard Bette Midler was coming to town.

    BB: “What was that?” “Probably an Islamist radical detonating his suicide belt in the mess hall.”
    Today’s guest strip was scripted by Tom Batiuk.

    Crankshaft: Either the punk means that he and his fellow Rough Riders fooled Crankshaft into making the promise to pay their college tuition by pretending to be stupid, in which case ‘Shaft’s smirk indicates he’s figured some way to weasel out of his commitment; or Shaft’s smiling because the kid has just admitted within earshot that the acceptance letters are fakes, which makes him the stupidest kid ever. Either way, someone’s got a bright future ahead of them at DeVry.

    FB: “Test cricket”? Now we know why Fred Bassett is never funny — it’s made in England! These are the people who thought “blood pudding” sounded like a tasty idea.

    FW: Those symbols you see in the first word balloon represent the sound of bees grinding.

    JP: If a full-grown woman is sitting on the edge of a bed, wouldn’t you expect that bed to compress, even a little? Either French beds are made of plywood, or Abbey’s been mainlining helium. Sure makes the strip funnier if you imagine her dialogue being spoken in a Chipmunks voice. Oh, and yesterday’s gag still works: “She was afraid I’d talk her out of it… in bed!”

    MT: Suddenly, Romulan Ubiquiduck cruisers decloak surrounding the USS Entersam! MT is funnier if you imagine Mark is voiced by William Shatner.

    MW: So Vera’s been bumped up to Scrivener at Scrooge Advertising… a development so stunningly dull that it didn’t even rate screen time compared to the heart-pounding letter-reading action of the previous two weeks. Maybe they’ll show it in a flashback. Nobody will be seated during the thrilling “Evaluation Signing” scene!

    MG&G: Actually funny today.

    S-M: Nice.

    #71 SS-B — Dr. “Hoo Boy!” Kelly is the man on the case.

    Why do I know this? Because I made a note when he showed up, knowing that two weeks from now we’d still be in the ER looking at him and I wouldn’t have any idea who the hell he was. So now he’s on a little list here entitled “Field Guide to Identical Bland Guys in A3G,” which reads:

    Eric Mills: Margo’s boytoy, gallery owner, no real personality

    Alan: into LuAnn (why??!), dresses like a ’60s-era folk minstrel, even less personality

    Blaze: LuAnn’s “cousin,” midnight cowboy

    Dr. Kelly: ER doc, works with Tommie, says “Hoo boy!”

    …I hope others find this useful.

    (I meant to go back and look up names for Tommie’s stagehand clone and the pencil-moustache director/jerk she wants to ride like a pony, but I find it difficult enough to consider going back and re-reading old A3G strips — reading old A3G strips that are about Tommie just ain’t ever gonna happen.)

    .
    P.S., your comment about Mary Worth is hilarious!

    FBoFW Is Lynn saying that weddings are only for the amusement and benefit for mothers, and the bride is simply the vehicle the wreck will focus on? That mothers are supposed to run the show, and their daughters need to sit the hell down and shut the fuck up?

    Why didn’t she allow that for Deanna’s mother? Well, other than the usual LJ double-standard.

    To everyone who is distubed by KinkyTurtle’s artwork: YOU ARE A BUNCH OF PANSIES.

    I’ve seen hentai sites that depict underage girls being chained to a wall and disemboweled, with lovingly-crafted detail put into their organs splayed out before them.

    I’ve seen a manga about a boy who rapes his sister on a guilloting, beheading her in the middle of the act, and behading himself just as he reaches orgasm. Hemoglobin flowed freely therein.

    I’ve seen sites offering videos of women actually stomping mice to death while wearing stilleto heels.

    Compared to that, a drawing like this is family entertainment.

    Furries are NOT the be-all, end-all or depravity. Not even close. The vast majority of furry art is completely safe for work, and the stuff that isn’t is hardly worse than most of the non-furry porn I’ve seen. The furry entusiasts themselves are generally very nice, and a LOT less obnoxious than other fandoms. (And no, they do NOT have sex with animals, nor do they consider themselves to be animals rather than humans.)

    You don’t like furry art? FINE. But please, get over it already. You don’t have to like it. You just have to be able to accidentally stumble across furry art without having a conniption fit and ranting about squirting bleach in your eyes.

    KT’s color panel is wonderful.
    I love the Bonnie and Boo Boo spoof too – whenever I hear the olden term “Bogart” I immediately think of Lowell George, and maybe Bonnie Raitt sitting there with him.
    I did like Sly’s hands in the pre-color sketch a bit better, though-he was almost clutching at the sheets (rather than shaving them).
    The tail-flickering is something my 20-year old cat did a few weeks ago when I kissed him just right on the bridge of his nose. He is the original Love Sponge, that one.

    What I have always enjoyed about the Comics Curmudgeon is the sarcastic snarkiness towards a medium that is usually so innocent as to avoid all criticism altogether. But now, Josh, you’re pulling the pervs like TB out of the woodwork, and changing the entire concept of the site in the process.

    FOOB – My husband and I exited our ceremony to Young Holt Unlimited’s “Soulful Strut”.
    Also, our first dance was to the Showmen’s – 39-21-40; a song wherein the singer is paying homage to his lady love’s somewhat impressive measurements. It’s from the 60′s and it’s suprisingly tasteful and sweet. Maybe my parents were appalled, but they didn’t even bat an eye.

    So, short of Shawna-Marie rocking out to Uncle Phil and the hoseaphonium, I say let the girl have her modern love song! And Dawn and Liz need to quit rolling their eyes in the background.

    And let’s get Liz and Anthony hooked up, stat. So that I can quit rolling my eyes.

    Funky Cancerbean – What an original and unhackeyned plot idea. I think I called this earlier in the week – Chien and Mopey are going to go to prom, and pleaseohpleaseohplease maybe get it on. But since Batuik abhors happiness in a pure form, something bad will happen – could be as simple as premature ejaculation, maybe a case of the crabs – or something big like – TEEN PREGNANCY.

    Cassandra Cat porn: At first my foggy brain was perplexed by why she’s multi-breasted. Then I remembered that that’s anatomically correct. I’m not sure if being anatomically correct is terribly important when we’re dealing with an anthropomorphized cat. Anyway, yeah, both versions are more…stirring…than they have any right to be (and thus are well done).

    Also, it hit me yesterday why 9CL is irritating me. (Well, one reason.) It has to do with Edda’s whining about an interior crisis about her place, and how no one thinks her job is “real.” To which I say “Get the hell over it!” She’s getting paid to do something she loves (albeit not very much, though in Brooke’s fantasy world, who knows?). Does she have any idea how many artsy types would kill to be able to do that? Being a professional dancer/ singer/ painter/ writer and making a living solely from one’s artistic efforts is the Holy Grail. So why should she give a boxcar what the public thinks? Most of them are probably employed doing something they hate in order to pay the bills! You’re incredibly lucky! STOP WHINING, DAMN IT!

    Cancer Funk – Prediction for the rest of this story arc: Outcast kids go to the prom together. Afterward, the girl takes off her black dress and presents herself. Awkward, premature ejaculative sex ensues. Pregnancy ensues. Since girl never received the new vaccine, she contracts HPV. Cervical cancer ensues. Using gothy patent leather dildo, she transfers HPV back to his ass. Anal cancer ensues. When she gives birth, it turns out she wasn’t pregnant but merely had a baby-shaped uterine cancer. Still, they raise the cancer as their child. Hilarity ensues.

    June 7th, 2007 at 10:33 am [Reply]

    Previously on The Spectacular Spider-Brick Snarks Thursday…

    Edda strolls through downtown Tokyo, or maybe Lilliput… everyone in the hospital ignores the supposedly still unconscious and bleeding Luann, and an unfeeling world spins on… Crankshaft’s a dick… F Minus sucks… Prom is for foobs, boxcars, margos and saturns… the sad thing is, those five are all the ducks Buzzard brought…

    And now, the exciting conclusion!

    FBOFW: Now, I’ve only gone through one wedding, so maybe I’m off base here, but shouldn’t the musical selections have been made weeks before the rehearsal dinner?

    FC: Hey hey HEY, hand check, Granny!

    Luann: Well, Bernice, yeah, you can be kind of a wet blanket some days. Sorry, but you made me say it. Oh, yeah, and my leg got torn up by an IED. Say, how are the Braves doing this season?

    Momma: Wow, that’s a long damn way to go for a “Francis is lazy” joke… all the way to 1834. Good thing we could see the joke a mile away, and avoid going along for the ride.

    MW: Yeah, there’s a reason for everything that happens. But in the Mary Worthiverse, unless that reason is Mary’s divine intervention, we won’t bother telling you what it was. Like, for example, the reason for Von and Vonda’s fight in the first place?!

    MC: I honestly don’t see the resemblence between Maureen T. Fox and Salmon Hayek. But I don’t care, just keep drawing more of either one of ‘em. God, I may not be a furry, but this group is sure trying to turn me into one.

    PC: “Moribund Cephalopod” would be an awesome name for a rock band. Or a nom de snark.

    Quigmans: I want to un-see that. That’s more obscene than any Cassandra Cat pr0n.

    Redeye: Think we could get the people who are pushing high schools to ditch their Indian mascots to focus on this strip?

    RMMD: Mr. Avery’s proclamation of “We’re gentlemen, not mobsters!” indicates that the person on the other end of the line is, like him, a man. Which deflates my fantasy of the inscrutably evil Oki Merlot being his co-conspirator. I was looking forward to seeing her whip a couple of razor-sharpened chopsticks out of her hair and get all Gogo Yubari on The Nanny.

    Shoe: Okay, kitty porn I can take. Birds with boobs are just wrong. Throws me right off my McNuggets.

    TDIET: Note that this idea was sent in from Mimi Steinberg in Florida. I’m pretty sure the following scenario describes the reality behind the idea:
    “Aunt Mimi, thanks so much for the fruit! But wouldn’t you know it, we just bought some oranges and grapefruits at the store. I’m afraid yours will go to waste again, just like the past four years!”
    –hangs up phone–

    Curtis – Damn, she’s got an acid tongue.

    DTM – The emphasis on “fishin’ laws is leading me to wonder what other laws Dennis could break, given his total lack of menace.

    FC – Grandma is practicing sadō.

    FOOB – They’re getting married in the big top and her mom is worried about traditional music?

    FW – Curiously enough, she shares my opinion of most youth events.

    GT – He’s “a catcher.” He doesn’t mind “getting beat up.”

    H&L – Remember, Ditto – verbal abuse is better because it stays with them.

    MT – “What th’?” What is this, TDIET?

    RMMD – I realize people have been making fun of the divided second panel, but I actually think it’s kinda cool.

    SM – Ooh, meta!

The local policeman who picked the spoiled rich girl up for drunk driving, Officer Pupp, had no comment at this time.

    So it can now finally be considered official: Real life has now become satire.

    Deanna and Mike FOOB Wedding Synopsis – and have mercy on my soul for anything I misrepresent or forget – it was 6 years ago.

    1. Deanna and her mother were at loggerheads about the dress – Mom picked out something hideous and Deanna came running to Elly for backup on getting what she wanted. Finally, Elly had to hide in the dressing room at the Bridal Shoppe while Deanna came out and showed her mother her choice of dress – which was lovely and Mira relented.

    1a. Lynn had a tie in with an actual dress designer, Romona Keveza, and you could actually at one point buy the “Deanna” for your own wedding. I think it came in white, but not cream.

    2. Dee and Mike decided to live together before the wedding and got a ton of shit from her Mom – so they decided to marry in a private ceremony in the living room of some minister with Tracey and Gord as their witnesses – about a month before the actual wedding. They confided in John/Elly, but kept it from Mira so that she could have her dream wedding.

    3. I don’t entirely remember much about the wedding itself, except it was tasteful, no puns or shenanigans. The main thing is that Mira was shown to be a total dictator and that everyone pretty much couldn’t stand her. I want to recall that she said something snarky about Weed being a groomsman – can’t remember exactly.

    4. They got married RIGHT after 9/11 (the 15th, I guess). But since the strip was in the hopper six weeks before, there was no mention, obviously. Except in the Foob letters the next month, they mentioned that a lot of people couldn’t make it because of the flights all being shut down. And how they didn’t want to disrespect those who died, but blah, blah…

    Should I be worried that I remember even this much?

    Well, that’ll teach me to read CC more assiduously and catch red-hot materials before they’re gone.

    Well, the Cassandra Cat pr0n was deleted from kinky’s blog.

    Good thing I saved it before it happened.

    #181, Alliecat: It wasn’t Weed that Mira had the problem with, it was Lawrence of the famous “gay teenager comes out to family and friends in an internationally syndicated family comic strip” story arc from several years back. In addition to being a stereotypical control-freak mom, Mira is a tad narrow-minded, and didn’t want “one of THOSE people” in “her” wedding. As I recall, Lawrence quite effectively spiked her cannons by solemnly promising that he would never wear anything that might cause him to out-shine the bride.
    (Aside to G.E.C. Chennux–Your Imperial Magnificence, the cannons referred to were strictly metaphorical. The one called Mira does not actually posess any significant artillery, nor in fact do any of the inhabitants of Foobville. But if Your Scaly Grandiosity wishes to rain down fiery death and destruction upon said Foobs regardless, knock yourself out, big guy! We will all stand back at a safe distance and applaud, whilst throwing potatos at your ginormous clawed feet.) (Btw, just wondering, what is the safe distance to keep between oneself and the magmacannon’s blast radius, anyway? Just curious, Sire.)

    Thanks KT for your understanding my concerns. And to the person that was curious about my letter to Josh, here is what I wrote…
    Hey Josh,
    First let me say I’ve been enjoying your blog for some time. I think the attention Cassandra Cat gets is hysterical. But I am concerned about the latest porn post. Even though my wife and I had a good laugh over it, I really don’t want a kid going online and finding it. I sent a message to the creator last night asking him to take it down in the morning (might as well let Slylock and Cassandra finish), but I see it is still posted on his site.
    I hope you understand.
    Best-
    Bob Weber Jr.

    Wow. Check it out… Bob Weber Jr. is a lurker on this site! That’s all sorts of awesome that I can’t even quantify it with anything currently in existence in our universe. And thank goodness I never went through with my proposed Cassandra Cat/Tiffany Fox slashfest. I don’t want BWJr. thinking I was a loser or nuthin’. :p

    Wow, that’s just…wow. This site is becoming the Internet hub for comic artists.

    But what’ll happen when Lynn Johnston shows up?

    #204 – Who’s to say she already isn’t? And maybe that’s why Josh hesitates to post any FOOB snark…. He fears her icy cold stare, which can turn men into stone. Or so I am told.

    202: That was a remarkably decent response. I imagine as someone who champions aspiring cartoonists, you must have been both impressed with and worried about the uncanniness of that post.
    In any case, I can rest easier thinking you might not be sending Cassandra packing to some cat-nunnery.

    Dang, didn’t get to see it. That’s what I get for missing a day!

    … wait, is this a secret trap designed to enslave casual visitors into a devoted readership? I’m not sure I like being manipulated by cartoon cat pornography.

    It’s a sad day when children’s cartoonists are forced to scour the internet for pornography about their work so that they can go HEY STOP THAT.

    I mean, really.
