Mort Walker, Beetle Bailey creator dead at 94
Kinda pushing it to put it in World News, but I was quite fond of his work.

For whatever reason his work was really popular in my country, and I more or less learned to read from looking at Beetle and Boner's Ark strips. Sad to see him go.

Sadcryface

The animated cartoons used to be aired on early morning TV here.

Beetle Bailey wasn't my favorite, but it had its moments.

I liked Beetle Bailey.

I used to read it everyday right after Peanuts and The Lockhorns.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Loved Beetle Bailey; I'd read it each Sunday in the paper as a kid, alongside Peanuts, the Lockhorns, Garfield, and Blondie. Sad to see the creator of it pass on. Sad

Need to think of a witty signature.

Bailey is my maiden name. When I was a kid I was called Beetle Bailey all the time. I wonder how the cartoonist came up with that name?

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Ah! I'll answer my own question. From the Washington Post: "he chose the surname Bailey after a supportive cartoon editor at the Saturday Evening Post"
