Art Imitates Life

From today's comics...
Apparently the "Blondie" writers saw my post last Monday.

  1. But Dag Dear, scrambled anything, even eggs, can be super. You didn't lose an argument, you gained an omelet.

    1. That's a great way to think about it! Omelets rock!

    2. My God, I haven't seen a Blondie and Dagwood cartoon in... never mind. Sounds like you've gotten yourself in the dog house, my friend.

    3. This speaks directly to my post from last Monday.

    4. Yah, but you're OK now. Misunderstood, but OK.

    5. Exactly!

      You know, I was going to work you and your legendary ‘fine ass’ into the Searches post where people kept landing here based on searches for hot asses, but I decided not to tempt fate and poke the bear.

      Do you know what someone searched for today and landed here? “Hot Pittsburgh Moms.” Suddenly D-fish has become a Yinzer dating site…

    1. As do I, that's for sure.

      Glad to see you again, Anne.

  4. Aw, I love Blondie and Dagwood. And he sure loves a good sammich.

    1. Dagwood is my sandwich-making idol. I have been known to construct a "Dagwood" or two in my day.

  5. Time for one of my all-time best humble brags:

    My grandfather (who died in 1973) knew the dude who drew the original Blondie. There are at least two examples of stupid things my grandfather did that were done by Dagwood the very next week. Only one I can remember is when he accidentally rubbed Comet cleanser into his chest hair thinking it was talcum powder, making the hair into bristles.

    He never made the sandwiches, though. That would have been a bonus.

    1. Your talking about Chic Young, Blondie’s original writer. I think his son does it now.

      How cool though… I love the idea of someone’s personal blunders making it into the strip. Maybe Comet is the reason that Dag’s hair looks that way.

  6. This is more my kind of Dagwood (Ohio!): http://www.foodrepublic.com/2011/09/27/dont-admit-dagwood-defeat

    Of course she's making his dinner in heels and a skirt while he relaxes with his feet propped up. At least he obviously let her pick out his favourite chair (really? electric blue?).

    1. She gets stylistically even with him every time he goes to work and has to wear that ridiculous suit with the single button. Not sure I could picture Blondie slumming around the house in sweats and a t-shirt. Dag either, for that matter.

      I would totally take a shot at that sandwich, but I’d have to lose the onions and mayo and make the top piece of bread thinner. Like the article says, you can’t even get a mouth around that thing… you’d have to eat it in top/bottom bites.

  7. I personally love the dog's expression in this comic. Pretty sure that's exactly what they do at our house.

    1. The dog is just wondering if SHE'S still going to get fed...

  8. Blondie is a HOTTIE !!!!!

  9. Ha-ha!! Scrambled eggs for dinner, scrambled brains for post-blog dessert.

    Hope it all worked out for Dagwood, and you, in the end.

    1. Luckily, I like omelets.
      No, things are fine. That post was a general thing; not a report on any particular recent issue.
