Red faced update: Um, make that happy early birthday, Mr. Bell.
See, I had this cartoon scheduled on my calendar in two places. One, today, and another on March 3, the birthday of Mr. Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone. For some reason, I chose to run this today, on the birthday of the inventor of the electric light. Oops! It does make more sense in that context (what does an amoeba have to do with the light bulb anyway?).
It's still one of my favorite cartoons.
I think this is one of my favorite cartoons ever.
