Chicago Tribune swaps out Saturday’s Get Fuzzy

From RACs comes a report that last Saturday’s Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley was replaced in the Chicago Tribune over concern regarding “standards of taste.” The comic (see here) depicts a sickly Satchel with Bucky Katt using word combinations to demean his fellow pet, such as ‘dog’ and ‘numb’ makes ‘dumb.’ The questionable part comes in the last panel when Bucky tries to put ‘dog’ and ‘sick’ together, though the feature only displays ‘si-‘ leaving ‘sick’ and the final word combination up to the reader.

I was wondering if he’d get some flak for that.
