PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

Post by lovekitties on Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:29 am

I think it's hysterical that they have been doing a whole series of strips about pastis never winning a Reuben award. I love the way he's poking fun at himself. I hpe he's nominated and wins this year

Did you see the offhanded reference to Mooch and Earl in today's strip? Supposedly they're ransoming someone they kidnapped from the strip....

Hahaha! Mooch & Earl as desperadoes! Thinking back to their early days, I can almost believe it. They did take down a few bears in their time, after all. Remember that nasty lady in the fur coat?

oh, yesh, and frank having to pay for the coat.

I was hoping that Patrick would continue the saga today in Mutts, but alas, twas not to be.
i was visualizing pastis tied to a chair in Frank and Millie's house. I see Mooch much more as the militant instigator, than Earl

Shocking! Laughing

Agreed, I could see Mooch doing that before sweetheart Earl, but apparently, this is WAR! Too bad Guard Duck is off on an ashram somewhere. Otherwise our boys might be in big trouble.

With publishing lag time I don't see how Patrick could respond immediately, though we might see a little something as time goes by. Hard to say. I can see Pat and Steph laughing their asses off together at some cartoonist convention, but their styles are pretty opposite.

well, I know that there is a lag time, but Patrick and Stephan could have got together and decided to do this, not as a respose but part of a whole spoof thingy.
More Mooch today.. He wants Beetle baily to shoot Shtephan . Pastis is getting a little risque in this one (friends with benifits)

I loved Trudeau's series last week and was glad that the news chose to run it as usual.

I see that the evil Mooch has been done in by one of Pastis convoluted puns.
(those pun strips he sometimes does on Sundays are hilarious, but my faves are still Zeeba and croc

My paper ran Trudeau's strips, too, LK. Of course, they've have it on the op-ed page forever.

Loved the Pastis Secret Weapon. His puns can make my head explode! affraid

I was checking on the National Cartoonists Society website yesterday (they have there yearly convention in May- (this year is May 25-27 in las Vegas)it's where they give out the Reuben awards.
patrick told me he never misses this convention, which is why he wasn't at the BookExpo thing at javits last year.
Anyway, the nominees for this year are Brian Crane (I thnk that's the name, I cant read my own handwriting) for Pickles
Tom Richmond for mad magazine and Stephan Pastis for PBS. Lets hope he wins this year. LOL

Ha! So that's what this is all about. From the PBS strips, I thought it had already happened. Lio's been mucking about (as Bob would say) with other strips this week, too. Suspect

Sunday's pun strip was hilarious, especially rat making a Giang Pez using Stephan's head. LOL.
Reminds me of the faux pez dispensers Fif bought where some one took the heads from the Mutts figurines and put them on top of actual dispensers.

I still wish those dispensers had been real ones. I can't bring myself to look at those decapitated figurines heads.....

well, an update on the Reuben's Tom Richmond won so poor steve is out another year.
Speaking of which , did you see PBS Sunday May 27? Rat disguising PBS so that the strip looks like Zits?

and Soup to Nutz did a tribute to the nominees for the Reuben outstanding artist nominees?

I saw Stephen yesterday at Book expo and he signed a copy of his new anthology for me. I commiserated with him about not winning the reuben. I told him he should have won, (unless patrick was up against him).
