Comical misspelling should be reserved for words that are pronounced differently.

"Thur-oh"?
While, of course, I'm using the spelling in this strip to represent pronunciation in kid-speak, once in a blue moon I try to use spelling to suggest how a kid (admittedly younger than my characters) might *spell* a word in writing. All in my attempt to try to be "clever" (I don't have the ego of a Brooke McEldowney to not use quotation marks here).

The upside, to me, is to have made sure this strip appears on a THURsday (notice I said an *attempt* to be clever).

I try not to carp, but feared you could be heading into "Rose is Rose" territory, and that way lies madness. Or worse, Josh Billings.

Madness, indeed! My primary influence on doing quirky language in a comic strip is Krazy Kat (Pogo, too, but I've been reading more Krazy lately). Of course, Herriman and Kelly could write and draw me (and Pat Brady)(writing, anyway) under the table, but, to be fair, it sometimes takes a bit to "translate" Krazy. Oh, well, if I ever get as unintelligible as Pascuale used to me, or Mimi (is it?) now, I'll just have to plead Grundoon.
