Although I haven't been a reliable blogger since we moved in, umm, September, I couldn't let this last round of ABC Wednesday pass on without my contribution to the letter 'z.'
Does anyone in blog land read Zippy the Pinhead in the daily newspaper besides me? It's not your ordinary comic strip, but grew out of the underground comics of the 1970's era of Robert Crumb et al. Zippy lives in Dingville with his wife Zerbina and two kiddos, Fuelrod and Meltdown. Don't let the fact that they wear yellow polka dot mu-mus distract you from the smart, funny and perhaps a little off commentary on our 'modern' American culture. Remember, the strip got its start in the Berkeley Barb. Need I say more except that it was Zippy himself who coined the phrase in my title?
See more Z's at Mrs. Nesbitt's place here. Happy reading!
