Reader Jon sent me a link to today’s Get Fuzzy comic by Darby Conley (I used to read it daily, but for some reason have stopped), with the note, “Bucky Katt may be reading Deepak Chopra.”
By the way, Wikipedia has a hilarious entry on the comic, in which serious exegesis of a funny subject yields even more humor—like this:
Bucky Katt is Rob’s selfish and cynical Siamese Cat. His ears are nearly always drawn laid back flat on his head, a feline sign of defiance, aggressiveness. The Humane Society found Bucky huddled on a trash can, while the cat was only a few weeks old, in Hackensack, New Jersey, later to be adopted by Rob. While Bucky’s father has never been mentioned, Bucky gave his mother’s maiden name on a credit card application as “Tricky Woo,” a reference to the ludicrously pampered (but in fact good-natured) pet dog of that name in James Herriot’s stories of his experiences as a vet. Bucky has been said to be named for Negro Leaguebaseball player Buck O’Neil. Bucky lives in a dresser located in the hall closet of Rob’s apartment because he refuses to share a room with Satchel. On most outdoor excursions, when Rob is present, Bucky is carried in a strap-on “Bundle-O-Joy” baby carrier, referenced as a way of keeping the cat out of trouble. Most of Bucky’s aggression is directed at Satchel [the d*g], although most of his attempts usually fail as Satchel does not have enough intelligence for Bucky’s rude sarcasm and is often unaware that he is even being insulted. Three obsessions dominate Bucky’s life: Fungo Squiggly; his desire to eat a monkey; and wanting to film a movie about him. .
I gotta start following this strip again.
