I’m Scared


I was writing about Gil Thorp for yesterday and remembered that Cow and Boy character I mentioned. One of the enormously many running gags was a giant panda who wanted to destroy the Moon and ultimately succeeded. And that would have been a great side joke to include in a story about kids protesting local radio jerkface Marty Moon. Trouble is I didn’t remember any particular date when Cow and Boy featured its Moon-hating giant panda. Couldn’t find it by searching gocomics.com either. None of the keywords that made any sense got me anything relevant. So I turned to DuckDuckGo because shut up I just do. And then I got this.

Safe search blocked some results for "cow and boy" comic strip panda. Turn off: [Temporarily] [Permanently]
By the way if you don’t include ‘comic strip’ you get pictures of people with black-and-white cows which, hey, great for you but that’s not what I need just now. Yes, after this I refused to try "cow and boy" comic strip moon.

While I’m soft-spoken, I am not a timid soul. I have seen, and coped with, stuff on the Internet that I will not be able to talk with my parents about even after we are all dead. But this? This shakes me.

    1. Pretty much is, yes. Maybe I would have less alarming results if I had looked for ‘strip panda and no moon’.

      … going to have to workshop some joke about Strip Panda being played with the Walter Lantz studio characters, but there’s probably no way to set it up that doesn’t give the punchline away.
