Pastis, Conley and Stromski explain last month’s cross over appearances

Did last monthsPearls Before Swine” and “Get Fuzzy” co-mingling confuse you or crack you up?  For those of you who were caught off guard by the strips, there is a good artcile over at the Hartford Courant about Stephen Pastis, Darby Conley and Rick Stromoski’s inter-comic amiable feud that played out in the funny pages.

From the article:

So why all this inter-comic commingling? Part of it may be the fact that writing a comic strip is a lonely job. Writing your peers into your strips is sort of their version of goofing off at the office water cooler or playing pranks on each other.

“As I said to Darby before, it’s like we’re 6th-graders passing notes to each other, except we’re doing it in front of 25 million people,” Pastis says.

That explains everything.

I actually remember that Pastis the big-headed kid in “Soup to Nutz” storyline…
