Immortalized in the funny pages.

I don't get it.

I don't get it either

"No animals were injured in the production of this comic strip."

Oh good, so the ginger hair dye is hypoallergenic, then.

Why are the hobos chipped?

Yay for Lucy!

And Sophie, too. I did a real double-take when I saw that in the WaPo. Did Gene tell you he was going to do this?

I think the joke is he's chirping because there were previously dogs less fortunate than Lucy, if you catch my drift. And his compatriot is hauling him out before the vet figures it out.

So when was the last time I read the funny pages? 1974.

When you are around Gene, always speak in second person terms. Never say things like, "What'up hebrew homie."

I didn't get it either and now I'm trying to figure out Richards drift.......oooooohhhh he ate some dogs...is that it ?

Dave, negotiate the movie rights.

This is going to haunt and torture as did Gary Larson's "Cow Tools".

The table-setting and the boiling water sort of hint that Dabney Mountabtten III was about to treat Lucy as if she were a lobster, when Clyde intervenes. And the vet is named Dr. Mollenhoff, after Molly, Gene's daughter, who is a vet.

Am I the only one who first thought this was about the botched "I Love Lucy" statue?

Wanderer:

Yes.

wanderer2575: No

Richard and Horace: Thank you

I don't get it either, but then again I never did find comics funny. Character flaw, I guess.

Immortalized or immunized?

SO the dog (Not Lucy!) had the thought: "Curses! Boiled again!"?

Add me to the "not getting it" club. Weingarten's comic strip leaves me cold. Definitely not a fan.
