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 #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.)
