jarbabyj: THE BLOOM COUNTY APPRECIATION THREAD

I renamed my personal journal "The Continuing Story of Mortimer Dipthong" because I re-read Tales Too Ticklish To Tell last night for the 50,000th time. I know a ton of us love Bloom County.

Favorite Strips? Quotes? Characters? Anyone have icons?

I was always a Steve Dallas fan. He was just so obnoxious, in comparison to how nice all the other characters was, that I had to root for him just to be contrary. My particular favorite strip detailed Steve's babyhood and showed him drinking out of his bottle, taking a sniff and bellowing, "WHERE'S THE BOURBON?"

Classic.

I miss Berke Breathed. Until that 'Outland' debacle, he was nothing short of briliant.

Or perchance brilliant. Whichever.
