Arthur, Bugs. Bugs, Arthur.

You'll be happy to know that the strip transcription process is starting in earnest. The Grammarians and I have started to tuck in on transcribing each and every Sheldon comic, with the goal of being able to search the entire archives using a word, phrase, punchline, character, location, prop, etc.

In keeping with today's strip, for example, I typed in "spider", and got these two strips, clearly showing that this is not the first time that Arthur has encountered bugs.

Try out the search function here, and bookmark for future it's getting more and more useful with every day.

(A fun word to start with is "eat" brought up some funny varieties when I tried it.)

Presidents Day

Tuesday, February 20, 2007 - 07:50 AM

How was your Presidents Day? Did you celebrate with the traditional family meal of veal cutlets and asparagus in a white-wine reduction? Did you play the traditional Presidents Day holiday games, such as "Uno: Travel Edition" and "Trivial Pursuit: The 80's!"? Did you sing the traditional Presidents Day songs, such as Mel Torme's Greatest Hits, Volume 2?

Ah, Presidents Day traditions...they warm the heart, do they not?

Also: my apologies for the late toon today. I was so wrapped up in my Presidents Day traditions, I made a mistake in how I uploaded the day's toon.
