    Well, there’s babysitting, and there’s T-Rexsitting…

    Dang… that dino has sexy legs.

    Personally, I think that “Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur” was the highwater mark. Moon Boy did, after all, have powers and abilities beyond those of his fellow missing links.

    I love that Grantbridge Street blog. I follow it mainly for the vintage comic strips, naturally, but I also have to admit occasionally enjoying their taste in “fit birds.”

    Dig the control-top bike shorts.

      That’s the most concise yuk in the whole thing, but nothing approaches the economy of narrative that brings us this caption: “All Efforts To Reach Baby Elephant Dropped By Chute From Crashed Circus Plane Fail!” Timely reporting, too… WW gets there just as the chute begins to rip.

      And print journalism is dying, you say?

    “Once upon a time there was a mom,
    Her name was Mrs. Pteranodon.”

    All aboard the Dinosaur Train!

    What I found far-fetched was the first newspaper story showing the beached whale. Could a beached whale possibly survive during the period it takes to compose, print, and distribute a newspaper in the 1950′s?

    I could buy the elephant story, but the T-rex was released by “an unusual heat”. I think the implication was that Scragg, the villain of the story, set everything up. So probably the newspaper was faked by him, too, which pretty much explains everything. Except the T-rex. Really, a T-rex?

    Also, Wonder Woman must be incredibly gullible.

    For David E. Kelley’s sake please put (spoiler alert ahead) in all these posts and article titles!

    After weeks of trying to convince my kid that it is not currently possible to give him a pet dinosaur, not even a small one, not even if he sleeps outside with it this comes along.

    God, the art was terrible. It looks like a political cartoon from the late 1700s. All it needs is some ridiculously large speech bubbles with hundreds of words in really tiny print.

    Too bad she was doing this in 1957. Many urban sitters make more hourly than zookeepers these days.
