Also Here’s One of My Dumber Giggles for the Week

So, when I write up these Mary Worth plot recaps I copy out the dubious inspirational quotes first. And to do that I start by copying the last quote from the previous plot recap. And then I delete most of the words from that quote, so I can start typing a new one in just by double-clicking on the one word and typing. This week, this resulted in my getting this ominous declaration from the creator of one of the most beloved comic strips of all time:

Screenshot of a text editor showing a dozen lines all reading ``Don't.'', attributed to Charles Schulz, and given different dates.
I’m sure Charles Schulz said “don’t” at some point in his life, I just suppose it probably wasn’t at one-week intervals like this.

It feels weirdly threatening, like he’s worried I’m thinking about drawing Snoopy’s nephew Stretch or something.

      1. I hope you don’t mind but I referenced you in Comics Curmudgeon under Mary Worth—“Why does EVERY girl I pick up live in the 555 exchange? I’m no J. Nebus,but that’s just gotta be against the odds!”, thinks Jared.


        1. I don’t mind, and I’m flattered to be thought of! Thank you. (I’m erratic on reading the Comics Curmudgeon comments. Depends on how busy a day I’m having and how angry I am at Funky Winkerbean.)
