Toon animal time

Two cartoons in today’s feed, a Bizarro on the perennial meme of the Ascent of Man; and a One Big Happy on animal bilingualism and its advantages:

(#1)

(If you’re puzzled by the odd symbols in the cartoon — Dan Piraro says there are 3 in this strip — see this Page.)

(#2)

#1 is yet another take on the Ascent of Man meme, often noted on this blog. A wry take, in which one of the evolved Cro-Magnon types decides that the traffic out of the sea is just too heavy, so it’s time to devolve.

#2 has one of Ruthie’s elaborate stories, with a delightful final twist: Mama Squeaks can speak Dog! She can warn off the fearsome Fancy Mew.

(I have done my damnedest to speak Dog to the wily squirrels that excavate and bury in the pots of plants on my patio, but either my barking is inadequate or the squirrels don’t understand my dialect.)
