I'll teach you all this in eight easy years


Please excuse the self-reference of a little stuffed bull, but I can't help blowing my little tin horn: it's the eighth anniversary of this here puppet-town cow blog! Yep, eight years ago today I started to talk about comics, post silly panels, and refer to myself online as yours little stuffed truly. Eight whole years! An' I'm only six years old myself. I believe that tachyons are involved in that somehow. Anyway, please have yourself a cupcake (or eight, as I am) to celebrate! Tell 'em Bully sent you! (To the cupcake store.)

As we usually do on such occasions, let's take a quick tour through some of my favorite posts of the previous year (so you don't have to read them again later)!


LISTS 'N' FEATURES
  • I started my Comics News feature. Here's my favorite news item:

THINGS BULLY DID


MY FAVORITE POSTS OF THE YEAR




Now is the time of Blogiversary when we dance do a Ten of a Kind with comic book covers based on the number of years this blog has been around! This is gonna get more difficult around year seventeen, but for now here are Ten Covers About Eight!












(More Ten of a Kind here.)

Before I sign off, let me thank all of your who read my blog and who comment on it, with special laurels tossed onto the lovely heads of mega-commenters Sally P. and Blam, both of whom have commented so many times that their comments add up to a bigger blog than mine is. I'm not certain how they do that, either. Thanks, Sally, Blam, and all! Very special little stuffed hugs go out to all my very supportive pals in The Bureau Chiefs, to Jane Wiedlin and Keira Knightley, to my kid sister Marshall and my pal Shelly the Little Otter Puppet, but 'specially to the Queen o' My Heart, the lovely Randi. Finally, this blog itself would be unpossible without the dandy online reference that is the Grand Comics Database, which helps me research those four-color favorites of yesteryear, provide the credits of each story, and without which "Ten of a Kind" would be a very, very short-lived feature. So thanks y'all, and speaking of Ten of a Kind: don't forget to come back here next year to celebrate my ninth blogiversary when you'll see me posting this comic book cover:

Arrggghhhh!!!

I'm so sorry that I missed the party, Little Stuffed Pal. Since you were so kind to give me a shout-out in your post you must have noticed that I've been absent from your comments lately, only showing up in fits 'n' starts and never quite catching up to the present. I hope that changes soon; I certainly wish you, however belated, the happiest of anniversaries, and I thank you for the cheer you've brought to my life.

The world needs all the fun it can get.
