Golly Gosh Gee Whillikers

Comic for Jan­u­ary 9, 2009: Golly Gosh Gee Whil­lik­ers

You know that show Early Edi­tion where the guy would keep get­ting TOMORROW’S news­pa­per TODAY? I always thought that maybe there was some other guy in the city who always got yesterday’s news­pa­per A DAY LATE. Where’s that guy’s show, is my point.

    I always laugh at how they print the Sunday paper on Sat­ur­day night. What if some­thing amaz­ing hap­pens at 7am when htey’ve fin­ished print­ing? WHAT THEN?!
    I guess there’s a reason we now have the news tele­vised. It’s easier to just yell at some­one to take a camera to X loca­tion on the double.

    Just wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed your comic and look for­ward to more. On a dif­fer­ent note, it looks like your site nav­i­ga­tion could use some work.

    Back in the olden days, the news­pa­pers had enough clout to ensure that all note­wor­thy news hap­pened before 7am. If so much as a cat got stuck up a tree after then, it’d have Mister William Ran­dolph Hearst to answer to.

    Of course, now that all the news­pa­pers are crum­bling in the face of NEW MEDIA and CIT­I­ZEN JOUR­NAL­ISM and OTHER BUZZ­WORDS, all that’s chang­ing. News can happen at any time! (Although now if the cat gets stuck up a tree it had better be hold­ing a sign with some adorable lol­s­peak on it.)

    @ Edward: Glad to hear you’re enjoy­ing the comic! Con­cern­ing the site nav­i­ga­tion—do you have any­thing spe­cific in mind? I’ve got some free time this upcom­ing week and would be happy to work on upgrad­ing the site’s func­tion­al­ity.

    Back in the olden days, news­pa­pers used to be rich enough to put out “special editions” for late-​breaking news, but radio and TV cut into the news audi­ence, and news­pa­pers had to settle for print­ing that news the next day.

    As for today’s strip, Milo just doesn’t get it, does he?

    Her face at the last scene is FAN­TAS­TIC. Good work fellers.

    @ mac­snafu: What do you expect? He’s a physi­cist, not a rocket sci­en­tist! Yuk yuk don’t hurt me

    @ Orceiacum: It’s fun to see how many dif­fer­ent ways you can inscribe “you are a doofus” into someone’s face.
