    The advantage is that the Jehovah’s Witnesses leave you alone.

    That’s the only trouble with dressing like a fish?

    No, it’s “drink like a fish” not “dress like a fish”!!

    Of course, it’ll still be hard to see.

    The other problem is that the nieghbor’s dog really hates fish.

    Dressing as a fish is difficult. The eyes are either far apart, or they are on the same side of the face! Mucr to dress as a geoduck:

    Cleo, you have to find that cat’s weak spot. Belly scritches? Fleece blanket? (Thanks to Get Fuzzy) Tuna? Laser pointer? Force is not working, so you have to think harder.

    Oh I know! Tariffs!

    Hi, x_Tech…. Grog…. Dennis…. all you 10-years-ago posters…

    all you silent lurkers…. and everybody still on the way!

    Glad to see you joining us on the comments forum for

    the June 17th  2019 “CLEO and COMPANY”

    (see, Steve…. I do know…. um…. sometimes.)


    Read it on Sherpa:

    Comment here.


    Cleo never said how she “got rid of” the cat in the first place…. if indeed she did anything.

    Probably just grabbed an opportune and coincidental moment of temporary cat-less-ness…. and bragged that it was her doing.

    But whatever caused it … it obviously didn’t take.

    I believe that cat is about to “stick the landing” in a way that gives new meaning to the phrase.


    Dennis… there is something almost NSFW about the appearance of a geoduck, even when it’s just doing its innocent geoduck thing.

    And that costume manages to look ….um…. well… let’s just say “not suitable,”as well, for no reason at all!

    As for tariffs… right…. cos they work so well elsewhere?


    I don’t understand that caption, above, anyway….

    It’s NOT hard to see…. I can see it just fine.


    Nighthawks… looks like FtLauderdaleAl made your favorite comment, above, almost 10 years ago…..

    So you see, you’re not the only cartoonist who’s been asked….

    “This is supposed to be funny??”

    If it can be directed at Jerry Van Amerongen, you should feel in good company!

    In order to be able to explain the various aspects of the fish you need to first get inside the fish’s head.
