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 #523

Who needs Halloween?  Nothing is more frightening than the prospect of another Clinton administration.

Uncommon Commentary #522: They Belong in the Big House, Not in the White House

Disrespect for the law is a contributing factor in the committing of crimes.  How much will this disrespect worsen if a couple of unconvicted felons like the Clintons reassume the presidency?

Uncommon Commentary #521: This Isn't Trumpery

("Trumpery" definition 1a: "worthless nonsense".)
Donald Trump ought indeed to withdraw from the US presidential race, but so ought the Dumbocratic, Libertarian, and Green candidates, and probably most of whatever other nominees there may be.  Furthermore, Emperor Nerobama, the Vice-President, and hundreds of US congressmen ought to resign.  It would also help matters if we would recognize that the average member of our fallen human race is too ignorant and self-serving for what we call "democracy" to be effective, and start over with another form of government. (I suggest what I proposed in this u.c.)

Uncommon Commentary #520: Trump's Remarks Ought to Offend Anyone Who Knows Right from Wrong, and Also Leftists

For the sake of good taste, I won't reproduce here the comments made by Donald Trump to television host Billy Bush in 2005--If you want to get some idea of what the future nominee said, read the walls of the boys' room at your local high school--, but I shall make note of something that everyone else seemingly has missed: when Trump spoke that vulgarity, he was a Dumbocrat.

Uncommon Commentary #519: An Immoderate Moderator

It seems to me that the purpose of a debate between vice-presidential candidates is, or ought to be, to give the public an opportunity to see whether those candidates are qualified to become the chief executive if necessary.  The moderator of such a debate therefore ought not to require either nominee to defend his running-mate.

Miscellaneous Musing #86

The purpose of life in this fallen, transitory world is to prepare ourselves for the everlasting life to come.  We ought to take our fleshly existence seriously, therefore, only in regard to how our present actions affect our existence in the spiritual realm--whichever one it may be--where we shall dwell after death.
