Marmaduke Explained

Here’s the second of two blogs about comic sites. I hope you enjoyed the Garfield-Minus-Garfield site I wrote about yesterday. Joe Mathlete has created a blog dedicated to the worst comic of all time, Marmaduke. That’s right, the mischievous large brown dog that causes nothing but trouble.

Joe Mathlete takes the Marmaduke strip and explains the actions and comments in the strip in a humorous fashion in less than 500 words.

Here’s a couple examples:

1. Marmaduke has been given a pet frog, despite being a pet himself.
2. Marmaduke takes this pet frog on walks, complete with tiny collar and leash.
3. These walks are conducted when Marmaduke himself is taken for a walk (by his owner-man).
4. As a frog travels via hopping (rather than walking), Marmaduke is seen hopping (rather than walking) during this particular walk/hop, most likely to mimic his pet's movement rather than out of necessity.
5. Marmaduke's owner-man is seen hopping as well, despite the fact that such hopping is embarrassing (explicitly) and unnecessary/inconvenient (implicitly).
6. Marmaduke is now published in color, even on weekdays.

All of this is absurd.

Marmaduke is about to go on a date. His owner-lady makes an unfathomably distasteful double entendre about Marmaduke's girlfriend, Snyder.
