(The Return of) Ignatz, by Sam Heldman

Friday, September 06, 2002

this brilliant analysis from the cartoonist at Alas, a Blog, made me think this:

It's easy to disprove the thesis "all daily strips with talking (incl. thinking) animals are pure genius". (Garfield. QED.) But is it possible to disprove the thesis that "no daily strip without a talking (incl. thinking) animal has ever been pure genius"?

UPDATE: Thanks for the prompt and erudite answer, again from Alas, a Blog. "All other daily strip genres must bow down (chanting "we're not worthy! we're not worthy!") before the talking possums, kats and beagles." To which I would only add (and I see that Ampersand might agree) "... and big-nosed penguins and stuffed tigers."
