Dear Kids:

When you grow up, you will learn your heroes were right bastards. The only way to avoid that is not have heroes.

Funbags: 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.

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

Unless your hero was Fred Rodgers.

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

Proof finally that Peppermint Patty was gay?


Patty was bi, Marcy was gay.

That animated cat gif isn't so much hypnotic as it is seizurific and vomity.

No no, don't take off the mask. I prefer you as a dangerous hookup to a committed husband. I don't have to listen to your crap about work and life when I don't want to, you have a wife for that.

The creator of the Peanuts comic strip and characters is named Schulz.

Not Schultz.

Always thought it was weird that there was an original Patty, then later a Peppermint Patty.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: He wasn't the best person to his spouses, but "a misanthrope" isn't really accurate.


Right. I believe this went down when he and his first wife were building the hockey arena. If memory serves correct, his wife was also having an affair with the building contractor for the project. Meh, they were humanly imperfect like we all are.

Bob Falfa: Uptown Hipster Doofus: Was she a little red-headed girl?

Actually, yes. She was the inspiration for that character. Notice how Charlie Brown was always wanting to be with her, but couldn't?


Er... actually the little red-headed girl was introduced in the comic at least as early as 1965, which was years before all of this. Not that I'm a Peanuts scholar or anything, but I just last week read a book that collected all the strips from '65-'66.
