Pooch Cafe (8/15/09)

08-15-09 (Pooch Cafe)

It’s hilarity aside, today’s Pooch Cafe stands out for another reason: its phonetic rendering of profanity. In a medium that clings to symbols (@#&*!) as a means of swearing, this seems somewhat groundbreaking. Of course, the war setting makes this cussing seem utterly believable and probably blunts some of the objections that are sure to flow form more sensitive readers. It also helps that the characters in this strip are dogs. In a literal sense, all of the males in Pooch Cafe are sons of bitches.
