@DrWorm@simplersimon This is a fair question – I meant the original animated series, which I found to be pretty well written on the whole. (There’s apparently a new CGI series that is sort of terrible)
@nolrak Fair enough. It’s a matter of perspective, but I would have never even have dreamed of classifying “Garfield and Friends” as the “original”, since it came 10 years after the cat’s debut. But then again, I still reads dozens of daily comics (but not “Garfield”) in an age when newspapers are on the verge of extinction.
@DrWorm@nolrak Yep… I’m that guy that still gets the paper thrown into his yard everyday.
Interesting side note: Saw a reference to an old newspaper article about the first female cop in MGM the other day and they said the news was buried on page 58. Shit, I hardly get 58 pages in a WEEK now…
@lseeber If you are referring to the Moggy tune, NPR used to have a show on Saturday afternoons (I think) called Simply Folk that used to play all kinds of cool (sometimes humorous) folk tunes. Not sure if it still plays in the MN market…
@lseeber This would have been the late 70’s when we lived across the upper part of MN (St. Cloud, Moohead, Detroit Lakes, Hibbing, In’tl Falls, back to DL, then over to Stevens Point WI)
Now live in (central) Ala-dam-a as well.
Odie, but for a different reason. Where the common bile duct and the pancreatic duct meet the duodenum (small bowel), there’s a contractible muscle called the Sphincter of Oddi. I had always remembered the name of this in school and to this day by associating it with Garfield’s Odie.
