The Unintentional Adventures Of Danders in Hi-Def 3-D, Part 2

We return to our epic from days gone by, featuring a character unseen for some years.
It was right about here that I figured out that Danders is protean by nature; he's mutable, capable of infinite variation, surviving by assimilation and camouflage. Or maybe he's just so bland that he's forever confused for something or someone else. He's such a dull little lump that no one notices he's not what they think he is.

This strip cracks me up still, after 8 years. I think it's because he's lost sight of the whole point of his job, and I like his piratical gobbledy-gook.

Whatever, I still distrust talking animals.

Thank you so much for "Heave the forward mainframe and belay the yardsale." For years I've bothered by family, who all love to sail, by yelling silly sailing orders. My efforts at this were upgraded a couple of years ago when I first read the picaresque adventures of Danders.

As to talking animals, aside from Mr. Danders, the talking animals in Cul de Sac are often pretty unworthy of trust, e.g. the firefly that "zzt's" Alice, the cricket that causes trouble in her sandbox, and various creatures at the shore.

Thanks for the fun reprints here.
