about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #491: It’s Good that Her Parents Didn’t Name Her for His Sherpa Guide, Tenzing Norgay

I have made occasional reference here at the Doman Domain to the fact that Hillary [sic] Clinton is a liar, and also to the fact that she has a reputation for high intelligence despite misspelling her own first name, which correctly has just one “l”.  I’ve always made the latter reference facetiously, but our non-candid candidate seems to have concern over the issue, for she recently asserted that she was named for the mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary—even though she was already six years old when that Hillary became famous by climbing Mount Everest.  If all her falsehoods should ever manifest physically and be heaped together, they would form a mountain that not even Sir Edmund could scale!
