Has it really been more than a year since the last Comics Curmudgeon fundraiser? Why, yes it has — we took a break this spring to make room for Josh’s Kickstarter initiative. So it’s time to catch up! If you’re new to the site, twice a year I encourage readers to join me in financial support of the Comics Curmudgeon, to keep it strong and independent and encourage Josh to ignore his legitimate responsibilities in favor of our trivial pop-culture amusements. If Josh helped enrich your life during the past year, why not return the favor?

    So far for me, WEDDING MARCH is the banner to beat.

    YT #86 Bats – the cucumber soda sounds delicious. Seriously.
    However, do they have dry Potato Soda? Oh, right, it’s called vodka.

    Don’t forget the “Free Mark Trail Ransom Fund.”

    Actually, screw it. Forget I mentioned it.

    S/F: Tragically, the jungle monarch was so focused on his (curiously non-anthropomorphic) subject’s safety after reading an article in National Geographic about the uses to which rhino horns are put that he failed to realize the poachers have actually set up a lucrative deal to supply identical animals to the Llongo elders for their “immortal lioness” scam. With his realm utterly denuded of females of his own species, not only will King Dandy not have any use of his own for rhino horn, but he will be the last monarch of his line as well. I hope that Slylock will be out of the country before the brutal civil war that will doubtlessly follow the succession crisis.

    @Master Softheart (#9): In South Africa, some rhino horns are being injected with poison (while they are still on the rhinos) to deter poaching. That’s how desperate the conservationists are. So the jungle monarch may actually be doing those hidden humans a favor.

    Synthetic estrogen could solve the problem on the demand side.

    And because I, like Rex, live in the growing fear that he’ll never return to Partayhartay Condos before having to leave San Diego.

    I’ve had a heck of a last few days, so imagine my delight when I finally catch up with CC and find BANNERS! Yay, banners!

    And now, the annual dilemma: Read all the banners now, or wait and let a new one surprise me each time I refresh the site?

    What to do, what to do? It doesn’t help that I have the mental capacity of Andy chasing Mark throwing a frisbee right now.

    It’s only because of the banner list that I finally realized that Ann Eiffel’s name is supposed to be a pun on “an eyeful”.

    Luann has just exceeded my low expectations once more.

    If the guy lost his left arm, he would list to starboard.
    If he drinks enough port, he might end up listing to face down.

    @Dale (#16): oh, dang. I feel compelled to fix this maybe.
    Where does yaw and pitch come into this?
    (With Rex, it’s probably more of a yaws and goiters thing…)

    9CL: emailin’ Ceiling Cat.

    HotC: yes, Dean, yes he has.

    NAoQV: ROFL! *SPINDLE*

    MG&G: “Poodles Are Always Female”, averted.

    PMP: trippin BALLS behind the wheel is never a good thing.

    Pluggers: mutton. or Sheila Roo.

    MT- I’m guessing panel 3 is an attempt at “bedroom eyes”. What a plot development- Mark becomes a bigamist and never sleeps with either wife.
