Get Fuzzy pun

Passed on to me by Doug Wyman, yesterday’s Get Fuzzy:

Ouch. Habitat for Huge Manatees. A pun on Habitat for Humanity.

On the strip:

Get Fuzzy is an American daily comic strip written and drawn by Darby Conley. The strip features the adventures of Boston advertising executive Rob Wilco and his two anthropomorphic pets: dog Satchel Pooch and cat Bucky Katt. Get Fuzzy has been published by United Feature Syndicate since September 6, 1999. It appears in over 700 newspapers worldwide.

The strip’s humor comes from the conflict between Bucky’s and Satchel’s personalities, which are extreme stereotypes of cats and dogs. Sweet, trusting, na├»ve Satchel is routinely subjected to the exploitation of cruel, self-centered Bucky, who is always torturing the poor canine. Rob, the middleman, is often frazzled from dealing with them, or more specifically, from dealing with Bucky’s destructive nature and overall nastiness. The three characters live in an apartment on Boston’s Longwood Avenue. Get Fuzzy often eschews the traditional “setup-punchline” format of most funnies, instead building on absurd dialog between characters. (Wikipedia link)
