I’ve always wanted to get Pearls on TV.
Just not this way.
The strip in question is yesterday’s, and the panel in question is this one, which you can see here:
Apparently, certain readers think they see the “f” word appearing twice in this panel. Personally, I can’t see it, and I know it was not in the strip as I created it. The only thing I can think of is that the way in which certain newspapers compressed the strip resulted in the “f” word appearing. If you are readers of either the St. Louis Post Dispatch or the Fayetteville Observer or any other newspaper with similar compression techniques, perhaps you can confirm that.
As I told the editor of the Post Dispatch, there are plenty of times where I do things that merit legitimate criticism. I just don’t want to waste one of those opportunities on something I didn’t do.
Maybe it’s one of those “Magic Eye” things, those popular paintings where if you squint your eyes hard enough and long enough and “look through” the painting, certain images appear.
I never could see those images.
And I can’t see this one either.
