More Paleozoic Humor


It's been awhile since I did a good paleozoic joke. Hope it's not too old-school for you youngsters who don't remember those times...

The Illustration Friday word is: "Fluid"

56 comments:

  1. I remember very well my first day on dry land...like these guys, I realised it was vital to get a lot of fluids on board.!!
    The legs and flask and name Carl did it for me!!:)

  9. Love this! Especially for it's nod to evolution. You don't see a lot of science in jokes these days, so something like this definitely touches on my pre-art science background.

    1. No Bella, that came about 70 million years later.

    2. Oh excuse me, I'm thinking of the Jurassic period. Make that 150 million years later.

      -how embarrassing.

      Delete
    3. HA! Oh, how silly of me. The dinosaurs invented recycling, duh.

      You and Roberto are so COOL! Thanks for the tip on the nasty word verifs. They stink.

      And thanks for your comments. I now hear the Jaws theme when I see it. YOU have serious talent that goes way beyond comics. Me, I'm just smoke and mirrors, man. Smoke and mirrors.


      ps. oh boy. I am stupid. It's not working for me. Down with Blogger Dudes!

  12. Hahaha - Great take on the topic!

  14. great job... I notice a lot of prehistoric cartoons on here, and that's never a bad thing!

  15. i forgot what to say, sorry =(
    but this is funny, and it's not too old-school for me.
    i have been having problem reading captcha lately.
    it took me 4-5 attempts before i got a captcha that i could reasonably guess.
    Blogger should replace this "please prove you're not a robot" with "please prove you're not cross-eyed"

    :((

  16. Aint it the truth. That new double-word verification is really a bitch to use. And it's not that it's an extra word to type but that one of the words is always unreadable. When I find out where to complain I'll post it here. Anybody know?

    1. That word verification phrase does not display when you are in Asia. At least two countries in Asia.

      Delete
  17. Ted, have you sent your cartoons to the New Yorker? Yor style is perfect for it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ugh now it works!!! I am still in Asia. I think I will get rid of the word verif on my blog when I get home.

    1. I'm starting to think this new captcha that blogger has cannot be removed. I tried and couldn't find a way, only an explanation of why it is needed on blogger now. Originally you could turn it off but now not so sure.

      Delete
    2. I just removed my word verification feature. I hope no one spams me because, otherwise I will just not even have comments. I cannot stand the new word verif feature.

      Delete
  19. Oh I forgot, to say something about your illustration. I like it of course, even though those fish look gross in real life. It is so weird and sort of scary seeing them walk on land. Have you ever had squid flakes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, I wanted them to look gross and stupid. That's always funnier than handsome and elegant.

      Squid flakes?? Like, with milk? No.

      Delete
  20. haha XD
    The weather here is just like that.

  21. Hey Ted I've been testing, and if you write only one verificacón words, your comment is accepted
    It is also accepted if you write one of the words well, and the other word you write anything. test, this works
    I think that the Blogger's guys are having fun with us

    ReplyDelete
  22. Why have not you opted not to show the word verification?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I tried to turn it off but couldn't figure out how. Do you know?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Roberto, it works! You only have to type the first word in word verify correctly and it posts. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Heck, your fishies should have a drink with my chickens...they've all got the appendages ;) Lovin' it, as usual, Ted.

  26. *design.
    *configuration.(maybe: settings)
    *comments.
    *choose option: do not show word verification for comments
    *save
    OK, you did it!!!!!!!! you won a million dollars!!!!
    see you!!!! :)

  27. Aw crap, I don't have the 'do not show word verification' link under comments. I tried looking for it before. Guess you have a different account set-up than I do.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It is there. All you have to do is go back and select the old blogger interface. The old settings format will display. Select do not show word verif. and then after doing that, if you like the new blogger interface, select it again.

      Delete
    2. Oh, I am not sure about's Roberto's claim because I cannot leave a comment on your log without typing the second word correctly or just leaving it off.

  31. You may remove this word verification feature. Return to the old blogger interface then set it to no word verifcation and then reselect the new blogger interface. If you allow anonymous comments, you will get SPAM, however, the new blogger settings embed the code that directly sends all Anonymous comments to the SPAM comment tab. They won't even publish unless you deselect the Spam indication.Of course you may ask why go to such trouble, right? Well for one thing the new word verification feature is a pain in the patoot. I removed mine and only allow registered users and those with Open ID. I have received Anonymous comments so far linking some Domino Pizza coupons and an erotic website. I did not really click on the site but it is obvious if the the web link says "eroticpleasures" you may pretty much guess the content. But then again some people are into that!
