Ziggy, 11/9/04

OK, so, no matter what you may think of the ultimate justification of any particular war, I think we can all agree that experiencing a war is no fun. So can we please have a moratorium on comics jokes derived from war lingo? It’s a little alarming that a phrase that entered the popular jargon when it described firing a cruise missile into a city in an unsuccessful attempt to kill a dictator is here used to denote a bird pooping on Ziggy’s bald head. It’s a serious matter, so let’s lay off the ha-ha war talk, shall we?

Well, except when my dad calls farting in bed “gassing your own people.” That’s still pretty funny. Heh.
