How to Understand Your Parent's Wisdom

I'd like to remind readers in the U.S. that one of my friends, who has appeared in this strip as a named character (and the character is named after them) will be appearing in the season premier of the NBC series Grimm this Friday.

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Rodney? Will he be killed off and resurrect in that show, too?

Note from Scott: Indeed it is! (CURSE YOU IMDB!!) ... And, i don't know if he'll be killed off on the show.

So Rick. Or Clyde. Or Graham. Or Kate. Or Athena. Or Jenkins. There's a lot of named characters, some of whom I probably don't remember being named.

Is it Rodney (Sherwood, playing Henry Slocombe), the guy who was killed and resurrected?

Note from Scott: Indeed it is! (CURSE YOU IMDB!!)

Most probably Rick. Gonna have to see that, I'd like to see how Rick looks like IRL, and whether he'll play the defeatist role

I had a look at the IMDB Listing for the premier, and sadly did not recognize any of the actors' names as having appeared in BI.

Maybe Rodney, since he's from Seattle?

Rockethat, really!? do have a lot of friends. Unfortunately, I don't have a TV, but I will be buying the DVD once it's out (using your Amazon Affiliate link). Nobody spoil it for me!

It never occurred to me until now to wonder if any of the hardware magnets we played with as kids in dairy country had already made that magical journey.
Whelp. Better go wash my hands.

October 20, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFranz

Yes, please, don't be so coy. Who is it, Scott?

Note from Scott: Read on. It has been guessed already. (CURSE YOU IMDB!!)

I thought the magnet just stayed in the cow's stomach forever, grabbing whatever nails or wires the cow happened to eat over it's life.

Note from Scott: You are correct, but ... that's not what Mom told us. she was not above lying to make a point.

It's always fun, that moment when you realize just how full of literal BS your childhood was.
Or when you realize that that great truck, which you and all the kids in the neighborhood would chase as it trundled slowly along all the streets spewing that great cloud of smoke, was pouring out a mist of DDT to kill mosquitoes.
It's not as fun when you realize that all those times you had to go outside with all your fellow students of all races and colors were because someone had planted a bomb in your school because it was integrated, and that they wanted you to die because you went to school with fellow students of all races and colors.

Omnipresent man obviously, since he's in every show.
