+Gwen Patton Ha! Didn't even think of that when I scribbled him. Short answer, No. Can't let the cat out of the bag quite yet though. Soon, very soon. Stay Tooned.

The fresh FIDDLESTIX© funnies will also start running again over at my fabulous blog TOONED IN©. As soon as we finish featuring strips from the first 25 years, we are currently running feature select strips from the current Classics run of the syndicated funnies. Go grab a laugh before they return back to the vaults.

+Abba Studios Thanks for the kudos. These strips are from the initial syndication run circa 1991, but they live on through re-runs on the printed pages as Classics.

Some news just lends itself to satire.

Something very cool is about to go down. Stay Tooned! I am super excited to shout the news out. In my opinion it's cooler than the Lunar Eclipse, well maybe not. But it is very cool to me.

Ha! Outrageous.
 
Internet Rule 938

On the internet, there is no such thing as a difference of opinion.  If we disagree, I know I am right so therefore, you must be stupid!!

I started thinking about this several weeks ago.  I am sometimes amazed as I go through my stream that we have seemingly lost the basis for civil disagreements at times on the web.  Someone that believes differently than you may not have all the facts that you have.  OR, they actually might have more facts and therefore be the ones who are actually right.  Or two people can actually look at the same set of facts and from their perspective have differing viewpoints.

I can always be convinced that my point of view is wrong. However, you better come prepared with your set of data because you know I will.

+Mary M I would imagine we could but we would have to duct tape a few human limbs to the tires also for that added effect to hear what sound that makes. I hear SKRINTCH.
