Excuse me?? But cats have abandoned their ego?
I do like the red arrow on the flow chart.
Except if your a Wiley Bear which is more human than an enlightened cat or dog.
But, my ego is the only good thing about me.
This is going to garner a lot of comments.
For care and feeding of your ego. Now you need an ego and it is always eager to get bigger so restrict its diet most times. And keep it under restraint. Don’t let it lead, it should always follow.
One of our Shelties had a huge ego – a Napoleon complex, but he was the runt of his litter.
I was abandoned by my ego. It ran off with my charm and sense of style and is now living somewhere in Paris. All it left me was my devastating wit and stunning good looks.
Well, the cat does have eight shots at preconceptions? But I’ve always found that a person who doesn’t like dogs, is a jerk, a person a dog doesn’t like, is an “A” hole. To cast a slight political light, it is intersting that the great orange one doesn’t have a dog…
I can imagine a lot of people who could stand to read this.
“True wealth isn’t monetary… hold it.”
The problem with listening more is that most of what you hear is nonsense (to put it charitably.) You have to sift through a lot of dirt to find a nugget (of truth.)
How many people get past step one?
Guess we better be happy they’re so tolerant of our lacks, otherwise they might decide to reshuffle the gene pool
No cat will ever make it past that first guru
Now you know why “God” is “Dog” spelled backwards.
I like the salmon ladder at the diversity bear level. When the bear is the guru, it says embrace natural selection, release your inferior speed and power from the gene pool.
I’ll give it another week, but I may drop the strip. Trendy lefties who preach get tedious in a hurry.
Wiley hasn’t gotten past the red arrow on his own chart judging from his political comments. @dennisnichols Wiley’s politics are tedious, but his bears are hilarious so I keep reading the strip.
Dennis…..Don’t let the door……
Our politicians get stopped at the Open Your Mind sign.
Coincidence? All the adds surrounding this comic today are for pet products!
OK, I admit that I don’t release my ego, live without preconceptions and find myself completely in the moment. On the other hand I don’t clean my body with my tongue.
“Release Judgment” Wiley’s logic is self destructive as he judges others to follow his commands. What makes him and his ego the standard for all others to follow?
But the Beach Boys told me to hang on to my ego.
Of course, if you’re not sentient, you don’t worry about this sort of stuff.
Dogs are the bestest! Cats treat you ok, but only for as long as you(their human underlings) feed them on demand, and clean their litter box. Failure at either will not be tolerated! punishment is being awaken at 4:36 in the morning.
As the old saying goes, “My karma ran over my dogma…” (it happened in Catmandu, in case you were wondering…).
Surprised no one’s made a reference to ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN yet. Oh, well, now someone has.
Just finished reading the book “What It’s Like to be a Dog and Other Adventures in Animal Neuroscience.” Sorry, Wiley, bears weren’t included.
Suggestion for multiple comments: Respond to the first if you want. Flag the rest.
Where there is knowledge, there is no need for thought.
Not to question you PCOLLI, OK, I am :), but are you sure that shouldn’t be:
Thinking often generates into knowledge. :) Believing, not-so-much.
“It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll”.
Really poignant for those of us who watched last night’s series finale of “Halt and Catch Fire.”
Said it before, will say it again. God should have stopped with zebras.
Void where prohibited by law.
I take being a “Child of God” literally: especially the Child part.
This is classic!
They do seem to get it better than most humans.
A great lesson that can be learned from dogs: wag more, bark less.
