    I’m surprisingly not grossed out, but I’ve read Patricia Polacco’s children’s book “Thunder Cake”. Tomatoes and chocolate cake go together better than most people realize, especially with cut strawberries on top. (But it’s better to mix tomato puree directly into the batter than to squirt ketchup on the side.)

    My mother was a second grade teacher in a rural town. A boy in her class was going to an open audition for child actors at the nearby city’s civics center. This audition had been advertised on the radio; they claimed it was run by actual Hollywood talent scouts and they named-dropped major Disney Channel and Nickelodeon shows like iCarly.

    The boy had NO acting experience, not even in a school play. But his mother was certain that he was a star and convinced him that he was going to succeed.

    In the week leading up to the audition the boy would not shut up about it. “When I get my acting job I’m gonna be rich.” “When I get my acting job I’m gonna be famous.” “When I get my acting job I won’t have to go to school any more.” That one prompted my mother to explain that child actors have on-set tutors. The boy looked at her like she was nuts.

    The weekend of the audition came and went. The following Monday the boy came into class crestfallen. He had not gotten his acting job. “They said I didn’t ‘sparkle’.”

    My cousin’s daughter’s graduation party had an inflatable slide and a cotton candy machine. Those folks know how to throw a party.

    For a moment I thought that Mr. Basset was making a Pokemon reference.

    The video games Pokemon Sun and Moon for the Nintendo 3DS handheld are set in the Pokemon world’s version of Hawai’i, called Alola (“aloha” plus “ola”, the Hawaiian word for “life”). Each island of Hawai’i has an official signature color. Their Alolan equivalents are named after those colors.

    Kaua’i is Poni (purple). O’ahu is Melemele (yellow). Maui is Akala (pink). And the Big Island is Ula’ula (red).

    There’s so many jokes that it’s like a week’s worth of strips all in one.

    Maybe Heart wants to do the original J.M Barrie play?

    Ever hear of “Axe Cop”? It was the result of a 28-year-old illustrator letting his 5-year-old brother write comics for him. It started as a webcomic but was picked up by Dark Horse and also adapted into an animated series on Fox.

    In 18 years Red is going to be a 20-something complaining about how “The Next Generation” will ruin Star Trek.

    There are two ways Charlotte could have missed three out of the 13 “Star Trek” movies:

    1. She skipped the entire reboot trilogy (2009’s “Star Trek”, 2013’s “ST Into Darkness”, and 2016’s “ST Beyond”).

    2. She skipped the two worst Original Series movies (ST: The Motion Picture and ST V: The Final Frontier) plus the least relevant Next Generation movie (ST Insurrection).

    No other combination makes sense.
