Pardon My Planet (1/8/11)

I seriously doubt that the fish in this strip has a more compelling backstory than the dog. It’s not that the fish is boring (okay, it’s probably a little boring) but that the dog is relentlessly interesting. For one thing, it’s wearing pearls instead of a dog collar. Was this dog a member of the aristocracy or did he pry those out of a costume trunk hidden in the back of a storage locker used by vaudeville enthusiasts? The dog also appears to have a head that’s slightly larger than it ought to be, given its tiny body. That’s not interesting in and of itself, but it does suggest the dog has more character quirks than that lame, perfectly proportioned fish.
