and this one (I can’t make out the name of the cartoonist; some reader please help out):
But boy, do I miss Gary Larson!
Cats ask if things are for them?
No, not really.
But if they reject it, you are allowed to pretend that they asked first.
Ah — good to know. It might help me pretend to retain a bit of my dignity….
It’s an internal dialogue.
I like how the cat makes decisions! Quite a cheeky cat
The “Bat Party Games” is by Mark Parisi, and it’s from his syndicated panel comic Off The Mark. I’ve never met Mr. Parisi, but have corresponded by email, and have had the honor of having several suggestions turned into published comics. I highly recommend his warped humor.
The cartoon’s by Mark Parisi – second one down the page when I saw it, but maybe they shuffle the order:
Thanks for those links! Having grown up elsewhere the second pic was totally lost on me until I looked up the game at the repository of all human knowledge, and enlightenment followed.
Since echolocation would not be a great help in Pin the Tail on the Donkey, I wondered, just how blind are bats?
It’s a miff, no not a miff a miss, no, a mith no that’s not it either. You know, one of those things that are false but christians believe and worship?
Bats are not blind. Most bats can see as well as humans. Fruit bats have eyesight that is adapted to low-light, much like cats. Fruit bats also see in color.
Even more than missing Gary Larson is that he doesn’t have a site where you can browse them. I had to buy the complete works, but at least got a good discount from a Goodwill store via Alibris (the former of which, AFAIK doesn’t carry the trappings of the Salvation Army).
Agreed – I bought his calendar every year, and would love to collect some of the classics.
Thomas Nagel would NOT get this…
I didn’t know Gary Larson was dead.
Oh, retired. One of the few – most cartoonists I’ve heard of keep pen in hand until they’re found slumped over the drawing board.
