The Morning Line: When Lio Chooses Stewie
Oh, is little Lio all too typical of far too many tykes these days? V.T. Hamlin first created ol' "Alley Oop" 76 years ago, and the time-travelin' cave-man with the war hammer long did a commendable job of satirizing modern society. Now, it's "Lio's" turn to offer fair comment on modern reading habits; Specifically, "good clean" entertainment is no longer any attention-span match for the likes of Seth McFarlane's "Family Guy."
Audible sigh. At least in Lio's world, the comics pages make for a mighty fine pressman's hat.
Nicely turned, Mr. Tatulli -- we doff our paper hat toward thee.
Elsewhere on the pages of The Post -- land of the Intense Redskins Fan, where folks bleed burgundy and gold -- we're compelled to say (tongue-in-cheekily): What's with all these goshdurned Dallas Cowboys on our pages? At least "Tank" makes sport of the franchise with the "Romo Rebate." And "Mother Goose" is just cheap-o silliness. (Indeed, "Zero" and "JohnS"--everyone from Cash to Chet Atkins has recorded the lyric being appropriated here.) But what's with the nonexistent jersey number--just because the year is '08?...
Fans of both comics and the Redskins (America's OTHER Team), we invite your comments.
