Sometimes we don’t really want to hear the truth.
In memory of Bo Lumpkin, a cartoonist and blogger, who passed away one year ago on November 22, 2013. His cartoons are still online at Gatorhead Comics.
RIP Bo Lumpkin, the blogosphere has not been the same since his passing 🙁 Ooooh and pass the cookies
Yes, Bo is really missed. We can all have some cookies on Bo!
Sometimes a lie can be a lot sweeter than the truth. Bo is missed, thanks for the special mention!
I’ll take the sweet cookies!
Binky, less European in your answers and more North American department store friendly.
I believe in direct truthfulness rather than pleasant platitudes.
A platitude? Is that sort of like a platypus?
Um, yes, it’s a high-altitude platypus.
I thought it was a platypus with a tude.
That’s just silly. Everyone knows platypuses can’t have tudes!
I’m not so sure. I read they have stingers with venom.
They do have a claw or spur which has venom which is rather unfriendly of them.
Sure do miss Bo & his brand of humour. Especially his Creatures Of Habit comics. They really used to crack me up. He was one of the very 1st ones who encouraged me to give cartooning a try.
Bo’s humor and kindness is greatly missed.
Twink appreciates flattery over truth. Binky didn’t mention “not enough choc chips”. There’s never enough choc chips
That is true. It is one of the immutable laws of the universe that there can never be enough chocolate chips.
Thank you for adding a remembrance of Bo, most of us knew him around here and he was a fine man with a great presence around the web.
His cartoons, and jewellery making were something that I always liked about him.
Rest in peace Bo
Bo had many talents, and he seemed to really like making jewelry. He created some nice pieces.
I like your clear and decisive thinking Binky, after all if you don’t start paying attention and liking Twinks baking efforts a lot more then you won’t be getting any :0)
I suppose sometimes one has to balance truthfulness with practicality.
As always Peter you add
joviality to the beginning
of our week, and this one
didn’t fail to please 🙂
Thank you for giving us all
these laughs my great friend 🙂
Thanks you, Andro. I’m glad you liked it.
I don’t like real sugary cookies, either.
Yes, less sugar, more chocolate.
Pretty much happy relations here on out.
And more cookies, one would hope.
Now eat the cookies (and don’t break her heart).
It is always easy to eat the cookies.
WOW! A year has gone by already.
It is hard to believe it was a year ago that we lost Bo.
She needs less sugar and more nuts. I’m just saying.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I’m glad someone agrees with me.
See, when it’s said with affection, it’s not lying; it’s love.
That’s how I feel, though I don’t think Twink agreed.
I see plenty of nuts around here! And Binky needs to give Twink some sugar!
You must have seen Winky pass by.
Yes and try not to make that face with every bite.
Do you think she’ll notice?
Yes! Lie to us, those who cook. It just makes life easier. 🙂
Sorry for the loss of your friend and fellow cartoonist. I will go check out his archives.
Lying seems to be the consensus.
Bo was a very nice guy, witty and wise. I’m sure you would have liked him, Pam.
It sure sounds like it Peter. Thank you for the links to his work. I really enjoyed getting to know him. I’m glad his work is still around to view.
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you next week!
You’re welcome, Pam. Hopefully Bo’s work will remain up as it’s a nice tribute to him and his memory.
I miss Bo. I was looking at his memorial this week. They took it down yesterday. 🙁
No can do, Twink. The real answer is not give him the cookies. 🙂
Bo is undoubtedly missed by many. I’m not sure I knew of his memorial.
I like your solution better than mine!
Twink’s cookies are always good!.
Nice tribute to Bo…r.i.p.
Thank you, Deb! You can have all the cookies you want!
Thank you, Twink…I’ll take 3 to have with my coffee.
You’re welcome. I made a batch of extra special cookies just for you.
You’re always so thoughtful…..thank you!
I’ll make you another batch that you can share for Thanksgiving.
I wanted to say “everything works out in the end,” but I also wanted to clarify that I was talking about the comic and not Bo. Bo obviously had an impact and will be missed.
Bo definitely had a lasting impact and he is missed.
RIP Bo _/\_
He certainly deserves to.
Always great to have a do-over.
Two batches of cookies for the price of one.
Never heard before someone complaining on cookies… I think Binky need to have a secret meeting at the back office reading our marketing pollicy!
I didn’t mean to complain, only to offer some constructive criticism. I think I am going to dread our secret meeting.
I still think of you as the bad boy rebel Binky. Maybe it’s the glasses?!
I am definitely not the bad boy rebel. Perhaps a space pioneer one day if I can get to the moon.
are you sure Binky is a real wombie? something is too sweet for him??
Sending you lots of wonderful yummy stuffs for Thanksgiving here in the states!
hope they make it there through cyber space safely 🙂
Binky is a strange Wombie, but don’t tell him I said so! I think he might not be 100% Wombie.
I’ll be waiting for your yummy treats! Thanks, Faythe! And Happy Thanksgiving!
Maybe Binky lost a few sweet brain cells in exchange for rocket scientist smart cells ?
I bet he did! Binky has a whole head full of rocket scientist smart cells!
Twinky should be more reflective, white lie won’t make you better.
Yes, I agree with you. But it’s difficult to make others see that.
Bo touched so many with his humor and toons. He was the one that introduced me to your site. He will be missed. And Binky eat the cookies.
Bo did touch a lot of people, and he certainly is missed.
Yes sir. That is wise advice.
