Pear Pimples for Hairy Fishnuts

Bloom County was my favorite comic strip. I still love going back and reading the collections I have, and would love to get the new “Complete Collection” series that’s coming out.

One thing that pains me about the strip? My kids can’t enjoy it, at least not like I did. Bloom County was such a reflection of the time in which it was created (which was part of what made it so great), that unless you lived through it or are a student of 1980’s history, you just won’t understand many of the jokes. I will say my kids enjoy Berkeley Breathed‘s books and his sense of humor.

So lacking Bloom County, my kids can enjoy Pearls Before Swine, which is awesome.
