  1. Hey Dr. Zook –
    the recent episode is hysterical!!! The green facial product on the screaming
    woman (doll face??!!), the dead birds in the second last panel and the exterminator
    who’s inhaled so many poisons that he’s immune . . .
    Mike, you’ve got a major hit on your hands. Oh, and a new fan. My husband
    read your strip over my shoulder and would like to be on your mailing list.
    Great job.

    • Thanks again, Lillian.
      I must admit that the line “Hiya Dollface” is not original — I first heard it spoken by Rocky the rooster in the movie ‘Chicken Run’, but it seems somehow appropriate in the current setting. Speaking of Chicken Run, I still have my souvenir Rocky the rooster plush toy which utters those very words when squeezed (alternating with the memorable lines “Just give me a pack on my back and point me where the wind blows”). My Ginger plush toy, alas, is broken and doesn’t speak anymore.

      More trivia: I also tweaked another movie line: “I want him dead! I want his family dead!” was actually uttered by Robert de Niro in the Untouchables from 1987. Just don’t tell anyone…..
