Sick Puppy

Today's EEK! stirred a bit of controversy over on GoComics.

Some sample comments:

"Awful!!! There are enough weirdos out there that will get ideas from this!"

"How about a cartoonist’s brain? Oh wait, it’s already decomposed!"

"This strip has always “pushed the envelope” but that is not a compliment. The strip for today has crossed the line and is totally tasteless."

My response:

"Please note: No cartoon puppies were harmed during the creation of this comic strip.
The cartoonist does not condone putting cartoon puppies in cartoon microwaves, nor does he condone the consumption of said cartoon entities by green-skinned cartoon monsters.

Plus, I don’t think that cartoon microwave is even plugged in.

To all those who like “penguins, unicorns, puppies and rainbows,” the disclaimer at right clearly states that you should not read EEK!

So stop reading before you find out what unspeakable thing we plan to do to a unicorn!"

I guess vampires, cannibals, zombies, ghouls, disembodied heads, Satan, Hell, stray human body parts in jars, reanimated corpses and demonically possessed teenagers are okay. But not imperiled cartoon puppies!

Got it.

Shouldn't we be blaming Charles Schultz for inspiring such horrific acts in the minds of the big green monsters? "Warm puppy" is his line, after all.

I don't understand why people read comic strips if they can't take a joke. It blows my mind.
