    Just curious… has anyone figured out who Keg of Curd is now? And where the Hekkie did Gadge wander off to? These moles ain’t gonna preen themselves, ya know!

    Could someone please make the ‘Acclaimed’ anatomy artist stop tickling my nipple. It’s hard to keep my composure.

    Y’know, Red, I’ve been wandering what happened to Gadge for awhile now, too. I keep checking out bear porn sites to see if I recognize him but he never would turn his back on me. sigh…

    Holy crap! I blew it on the NY’erCC. Again. I should know the drill by now. Here’s the deal: one has to state the obvious, ala: “It’s a Thongbird” but no, I had to be clever and quick on the draw, so i wrote: “Okay, this is starting to look familiar” and right after i hit submit i went “Oh nos, i should have wrote: “Small world, isn’t it?” anyway, i’ll get you one day, oh NY’erCC.

    Airtime on Comedy Central was eternal glory back in the early-mid ’90s. Now it’s just an eternity.

    Now, don’t get me started on the Cartoon Network…!

    Regarding the whereabouts of my colleague Gadge Cubic, Mole Preener: a tragic plague of Tibetan Wooly Wort has afflicted the mole population of Kzrgztvxzrzstan, and Mr. Preener has been dispatched to comfort the poor afflicted beasties.

    Additionally, he tried to post a comment a few days ago which somehow got tagged as spam. The resulting loss in availability of enormous organs is not to be regarded as his fault. (It had something to do with John McCain being astonishingly – nay, Herb and Jamaalishly – nonspecific in something he said about the internet.)

    Congrats to all the repeat COTWers!

    On an unrelated (to COTW) note: Tribune Media Syndicate has apparently decided to distribute its comics online through GoComics from now on, with no advance warning whatsoever.

    So much for their busy online communities, all of which are now gone, along with all their content–including the three-month-long alternate storyline (or, if you prefer, fanfic) I posted during the dishwashing-contest and drop-a-meteor-on-the-basketball-players stories. Gee, thanks, TMS! All that work, gone forever! Thanks a whole bunch!

    #8 Cadge –

    Re: our mutual colleague Gadge.

    I didn’t see the comment in the spam filter, but there’s been an unusually high volume of spam lately, so I may have missed it.

    Everybody: if your comment doesn’t post or disappears afterwards, it’s the spam filter. Email the details to bio@jfruh.com, and Josh or I will try to recover it. Oh, and don’t title your post “nxlkzma kvtpub Be Her King.”

    But Lumpy: Nxlkzma Kvtpub is the King of Kzrgztvxzrzstan, and we her noble citizens!

    Spam is our national dish, and our national anthem is “Good Kind Sir in Strictest Confidence, Enlarge Our Country’s Mortgage.”
