How to be a newspaper comics editor

“If you hit us over the head long and hard enough, we eventually get the message, so we left this decision up to you. And you apparently decided that you would rather undergo eyeball surgery every morning than read ‘Get Fuzzy,’ the strip about a Satanic cat, a moronic dog and a clueless owner who never seemed to leave home. I kind of liked ‘Get Fuzzy.’ I don’t own a cat, but I could readily identify with the dog and the human. Both seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time either staring out the window or dreaming of their next meal. In the meantime, the cat was plotting world domination.

“But I guess the kindest thing I could say is that this story-line did not resonate with our readers. They actually preferred ‘Tokyopop,’ one of those Japanese animé atrocities that is the leading cause of madness in laboratory rats.”
Hey ‘Fuzzy’ … get lost, David Grimes, Sarasota Herald Tribune, June 11, 2007

Oh, pulease, it only causes a little madness, happy sparkly madness. By the way, Anime Expo is coming up at the end of the month. Bring your lab rats and your rug rats!
