Get Fuzzy (5/14/10)

One of the least endearing traits of Get Fuzzy is its habit of periodically portraying its animal characters as semi-literate. Bucky Katt and Satchel Pooch are quite articulate on most days, so it seems forced when a punchline relies on one of them having a limited grasp of English. That said, the punny punchline in today’s strip more than makes up for the contrivance. After I got through chuckling, I was even inspired to learn more about the “Whore of Babylon” and stumbled upon this:

It’s an old school, pre-revolutionary Russian painting. Come to think of it, this painting also makes for a dynamite single-panel comic strip.
