It's like this: Oh, I could post-up today, if I wanted to. However, my syndicate's editors are taking the U.S. Memorial Day holiday today and won't be around until Tuesday morning. So this week, I'm posting Tuesday morning. They're also going to take off on Monday, July 5th (for U.S. Independence Day), Monday, September 6th (U.S. Labor Day), and probably Monday, October 11th (U.S. Columbus Day), so I'll be posting on Tuesday mornings those weeks, too. I, personally, don't observe "holidays"; they are an evil, idleness-encouraging, European-statist- and labor-union-induced drain on America. See you tomorrow!
While we wait for our banner-artist Rick Altergott to finish his concluding installment of RAISIN PIE, we will have to content ourselves with these great covers he did for two Gilbert Hernandez graphic novels. I just finished reading both of them, and they are of course superb.
The third one, due out at the end of this year, seems to lack the distinction of Altergott cover imagery, but will no doubt repay your attentions as well.
Those crazy dudes setting off two litre bottles by dropping Mentos candy into pop have a new trick. Or rather a variation on a theme, a rocket car powered by the candy and soda combination. They're promising a you tube posting on Tuesday. We wait with bated breath! (spelling corrected 5/31 per popular demand)

They did it. Thanks for the heads up Nethie.
A northern Greece highway was shut down by a horde of frogs. Well, the authorities closed the highway, but it was because cars were skidding off the road to avoid all the frogs. Wonder when the rest of the plagues will come.
