Boo Meets Her Match

My friend said “Will kids even know what ‘the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog’ means?” I hope that because kids are getting into using computers earlier and earlier that even young kids will be familiar with this typing test phrase. Although maybe now it’s “qk brwn fx jmps vr lz dg. rofl.”?

I spent a lot of time on panel 4 thinking up the right second greasy joke.  I read ones on the internet for inspiration and my favourite was “You’re so greasy you slid into second base and ended up in Detroit.”

    As much as I like the name Bhupindra, Boo will be much easier for me to remember. Funny that it took me almost a month to realize that the three main princesses now all have names; Kristy, Patricia, and now Bhupindra.

    Also, not to be a super-picky typeset nerd or anything, but the sentence in the comic “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.” has no S. Oh noes! 😉

    You’re right! Its supposed to be “jumps”. Good call. I should fix that.

    I’m so your type… ;^)

    Both quick and sharp…

    Very punny!

    And that should be “your tongue,” not “you’re tongue.”

    Oh, and? I LOVE this strip.

    Hmm … I don’t know if I’d attend any party
    to which Sultan Pepper was also invited.

    Guilt by association and all that …

    Thanks Golux!

    Nonie, you also have a good eye! Both problems are fixed. Thanks!

    Jon, he wasn’t invited. He’s gone in sneakers. I think he’s going to steal the punch because he thinks it’s some sort of super weapon.

    Hey, you gave her a name!!! Calling her “Princess Planet Princess” on my ComicArtFans page just looked like I had a massive brain hemorrhage or I’m indecisive or something.

    Ha. More like i’m indecisive. I didn’t name her for almost 400 strips. Also, I totally forgot about the pirate dinosaur fight I drew you!

    My dad would use “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” as a hangman phrase when we played in restaurants while waiting for the food to come…

    …It seriously took the fun out of the game.

    Arial and Calibri walk into a bar. The bartender says “We don’t serve your type here”.
