My wife and I just watched Charlie Brown Christmas tonight, fark are little kids some miserable sobs! I'm not sure how I ever noticed, but wow. It's a wonder Charlie Brown didn't just slit his wrists with the shards of a broken Christmas ornament.

So... the Daily Fail knows that the piece they quoted from the Washington Post was satire, right?

Dwight_Yeast: WhippingBoy: Charles M Schultz was actually a composite of the directors of the Rand Corporation circa 1952. An artificially created personage, much like Chef-Boy-Ardee, Betty Crocker, and Barack Obama.

Funny, there's a Russian movie coming out soon with a similar premise: that all the oligarchs and even leaders like Boris Yeltsin were/are computer constructs and people are fooled into believing they've "met" them.


Directed by Frank Capgras?

Not Schultz.

I know nothing!

The Washington Post also found several clues of the extramarital affair in the comic strip.

...In another Peppermint Patty falls asleep in class and starts shouting, 'Tracey! Tracey, I love you! Tracey, do you hear me, I love you?'


Yeah, the Daily Fail has once again farked the proverbial beagle. They've mistaken a bottom-of-the-barrel satire column for fact.

I mean, the WaPo piece is painfully unfunny, but its lack of humor comes from truly horrible execution on the comedic premise, not because you'd mistake it for fact.

FunkOut: Patty was bi, Marcy was gay.


Exactly. People forget that Peppermint Patty had an on-again, off-again thing for good ol' Charlie Brown. The great thing was that she clearly considered him to be a loser, and her flirtations with him were usually more like playful threats. It's pretty clear that if they ever hooked up she would have pegged him silly, laughed at how miserable it made him that he enjoyed it, and never called him again.

Now, I'm not saying there was nothing between her and Marcie. Of course there was. But Marcie had a little backbone to her, underneath all that ostentatious submission. I bet she gave as good as she got in the sack.

zappaisfrank: By what I understand, Schulz's first wife was a nagging, belittling biatch of the highest order and was actually much of the inspiration for the Lucy character in the strip.Schulz played around because he didn't have the stones to tell her to "go fly a kite"....


That may be the case, but given that he was a huge mama's boy as a teenager, and was hyper passive-aggressive as an adult, not to mention that he was very likely a virgin until that first marriage: which didn't happen until he was almost 30... he came into that partnership with issues as well. More interesting than the affairs to me, was that he started out very evangelical, and as got older, wealthier and worldlier essentially became an agnostic by the end of his life.

Thank you--drives me nuts.


So, the Schulz > Schultz thing drives you nuts? Try illuminating the ignorant masses who cannot fathom that "Doctor Seuss" does not rhyme with "Doctor Use", but rhymes with "Doctor Voice". I have yet to find a single parent who correctly pronounces his last name, and its rather sad.

I've never heard anyone pronounce it anyway other than the first. If what you say is true, the misconception is so deeply ingrained in multiple generations of people that trying to change it is a hopeless cause. You'd have better luck getting everyone to stop using 'Legos' as the plural even though officially the plural form is simply 'Lego'. Even if you could convince someone that you were right, they'd still keep using the incorrect pronunciation because they've been doing it their whole life and the proper way just feels odd. For the sake of your sanity, let it go, because that's one battle you simply can't win.

I live in Shulz adopted home town.

He is revered here as a all around nice guy,

P Patty was based on a hippie Cali girl that worked in his office. the sandals are Birkenstocks.

From Wiki:

Geisel's pen name is regularly pronounced /ˈsjuːs/ sewss, an anglicized pronunciation inconsistent with his German surname. He himself noted that it rhymed with "voice" (his own pronunciation being /ˈsɔɪs/ soyss) and Alexander Liang (his collaborator on the Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern) wrote of him:

You're wrong as the deuce
And you shouldn't rejoice
If you're calling him Seuss.
He pronounces it Soice[43] (or Zoice[44])

Geisel switched to the anglicized pronunciation because it "evoked a figure advantageous for an author of children's books to be associated with-Mother Goose"[33] and because most people used this pronunciation.
For books that Geisel wrote and others illustrated, he used the pen name "Theo LeSieg" ("LeSieg" is "Geisel" spelled backward).


So even his collaborator eventually relented and accepted the commonly-accepted pronounciation of the man's pen name (Seuss was not his surname, but his middle name), so maybe it's time to get the stick out of your ass and deal with it.

/This is not remotely like when people insist on calling a digital video of a sex act a "sex tape".

Correction-- Dr. Seuss HIMSELF began using the "sewss" pronunciation. Not his collaborator-- THE MAN HIMSELF.

ZeroCorpse:
You're wrong as the deuce
And you shouldn't rejoice
If you're calling him Seuss.
He pronounces it Soice[43] (or Zoice[44]).


And now it will be "Soice" in my head because I'm just that crazy

Being crazy isn't enough.
