This Land Is My Land.....

I hope Brutus got permission to plant that tree or that he has at least paid any fees for the land. We don't need another Cliven Bundy situation embarrassing us.

Arrr, Marriage Is Terrible, I'm In Hell

Gladys doesn't control your life Brutus. She controls your money. She couldn't care less about your life.

Where Was He Going to Put the Shell Pieces Anyway?

Well I hope you're able to decorate your own eggs. That's a pretty simple task for someone who's about nine-years-old. They even look mostly one color--no designs, no stickers--so I would hope a nine-year-old girl could place an egg into a cup of food colored water and let it sit for five minutes.

When Life Gives You Cherry Pits, Make Cherry Pit Juice

Is that just a bowl of cherry pits on the table? Who does that? Throw those away. Don't just stare at them, using them to better understand your life. That's not how you should spend a Saturday.

So When Did the World Become Colorized?

When this strip first pulled up, I thought Brutus was holding Hattie over his head. If you don't focus on the image, it still looks like that.

To be honest, I do feel bad for people with bad dandruff because I had fairly bad dandruff as a teenager. It is kind of gross though.

I wish I could remember when I went from not liking black and white movies to actually finding them superior. Kids these days always seem shocked that black and white movies haven't been outlawed yet. And it wasn't black and white or silent movies I didn't like. It was musicals. My opinion of those have gone up as well.

I wrote a story set during the silent and early talkie days of film. Go read it.

What's With the Look On Her Face?

This could really be the second half of the conversation from that episode of The Simpsons where Homer wants steak for dinner but they can't afford it.

Gladys: What do you want for dinner, Brutus?

Brutus: Steak?

Gladys: Money's too tight for steak...

Brutus: Steak?

Gladys: Sure Brutus. Steak.

Later that day...

Brutus: What? Salad for dinner instead of steak?

Gladys: When did I ever say we were having steak?

Veeblefester's Rich So He Can Afford Life Support

Well, on the plus side, at least Brutus isn't boring enough to kill somebody--just put them into a near-death, comatose-like state.

This Could've Easily Been a Daily Strip

I'd be pretty ticked off too that my steak took seven panels to be brought out to my table but in that restaurant's defense, it's pretty cool that you get your own personal waiter who just stands there watching you eat your food...and waiting.
