A Comics Report

As noted earlier, three comics shared a punchline on April Fool's Day. Okay, so I noted that two comics shared a punchline and a visitor added Foxtrot. At any rate, the artists told The Philadelphia Inquirer that they feel a little betrayed:

It was an April Fool's joke, no?

The artists all say: No way, buster! In e-mailed statements each says the idea was his own, and because he was foolish enough to share it with one of the other artists, it somehow got stolen by the others. Should we believe any of them?

Everything is just one big joke to those comic strip artists isn't it?

Oh, and if I owned a newspaper that I wanted to be taken seriously, I'd have to change its name if it had "Inquirer" in it.
