Filling up Fridays: Fine Flashback Fosts Posts, re-presenting some of my favorite Comics Oughta Be Fun! entries that you might not have seen, or would enjoy seeing again, or maybe you're just going to go out to the pub tonight so you won't have to worry about it, see if I care...anyway, re-presenting a Bully classic originally published on March 17, 2008! (I was six then.)


There's a port on a western bay

They say "Brandy, fetch another round"

She serves them whiskey and wine

When he told his sailor stories
