Dr. Noodle has a plaque on his wall that changes from panel to panel. First it says M.A., then PhD, then M.A. again. If you can’t be consistent from panel to panel, you’ll just have to expect newspapers like the Monterey Herald to drop your comic strip. If you’re trying to communicate something via this mercurial variation in Dr. Noodle’s posted level of education, it probably goes over most readers’ heads. So don’t be surprised if the San Francisco Chronicle is the next newspaper to drop Candorville. If you’re trying to drum up business for Dr. Noodle by seeking out nitpickers, you need to put the word “Advertisement” somewhere on the comic strip.
So far you seem to be the only one who noticed the meta-joke.
Sounds like Map Dude is being as nitpicky as the patient
Dr. Noodle is like Dr. Phil. Not a real doctor. Just pretending. Map Dude noticed, but didn't get it?
Map Dude is playing into the joke, but doesn't get it. How meta.
My favorite part? The fact that Mr. Nit-Picker DOESN'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH, so his nit-picking is completely incorrect. If I were his wife, he wouldn't be going to a therapist, unless it were a physical therapist, so he can learn to walk again after I snapped and beat the living crap out of him with an abridged OED and my hardcover Strunk & White.
Sugarkat, your comments are always SOOOOOO funny and/or interesting! Make my day, they do. (Smile)
