@Reyn,
well, reyn; when I was 50 and looking for work, nobody gave me an interview or called me back. Luckily, I went to the place I currently work. Don't know what I would have done.

@tsarstepan,
Peanuts is about as popular now as when it was new.

Here's an old Felix, the cat comic strip. Notice the smoking cat!

@Reyn,
I love the old comics. Even the bad ones are more entertaining on average.

Had to look m4g up at the urban dictionary:
Quote:
m4g 128 up, 1 down love it hate it

Just like m4m on Craigslist is "male (looking) for male," and m4f is "male (looking) for female," m4g is "male for giraffe."

First appeared in the Penny Arcade comic, "The Carnal Consonant," with the first reference to Tycho's affinity for giraffes appearing in "Savannah Heat."
Tycho from Penny Arcade was cruising Craigslist for some sweet m4g action when his wife caught him.

"We've been married ten years, alright? Sometimes a man needs a little G."

Did you know that the man who originated The Katzenjammer Kids lost the rights to the strip, so he used the exact same characters in a new strip, The Captain and the Kids? The two comics competed with each other for years.

@edgarblythe,
Great! Glad to help. You won't regret taking the time to look at it. There's stuff on there I haven't seen for decades.

I did a search for Major Hoople a few years back and din't find much on him. That site at least has some on him.

If I remember correctly (and there's no guarantee of that), both the Katzenjammer Kids and its competitor, Captain and the Kids, were based on an old German children's book, Max und Moritz. Late 19th Century, I believe.
