Day 5 and we have raised $105 in donations towards freeing dogs from a life on a chain. To put it in perspective, $105 supplies this rescue team with:
1 Dog House $80 1 Pet Crate $75 2 Bags of Dog Food $70-$110 1 Heated Fleece Bed $63 6 New Nylon Collars $108 6 Light Tie-Outs (alternative to heavy chains) $102 6-Month Supply Flea/Tick Preventative $65 Or any combination of toys and/or treats
Fencing to provide chain free living starts at $509 Dog houses for insulation and protection from the elements are anywhere between $75-$155 each
My goal is to help as many dogs as we can this holiday season so that they don’t have to suffer the harsh winter in inadequate conditions. Handsomedogs has over 60,000 followers, just imagine if we all spared $1!
Let’s save dogs for Christmas; They cannot save themselves!
I doubt they were being this clever, but is there some sort of reverse Midas Touch that Richie's poor friends have? Richie can eat a sandwich and have bills and diamonds spill out, but those poor bastards find an actual pot of rainbow gold and have their riches snatched away by a shitty pun.
Taking the day off because we got the cat I’ve had since fourth grade put down this morning (kidney failure, she couldn’t keep food down) and I’m not feeling particularly funny. Updates resume tomorrow, thanks for understanding.
I know Richie Rich teamed up with the New Kids (I, uh, have all 3 issues...*coughs*) but there was another Richie Rich/NKOTB story that didn't make it into its own comic, and instead was inserted randomly into either a NKOTB comic, or a Richie Rich one. I remember seeing it at one point, and it featured Mr Rich giving the Kids a tour of a diamond mine or something. Would you or anyone out there have that story, or know where to find it?
I’ll download the new kids on the block solo series and check through them for this, because I routinely make very bad decisions.
Wow, that was a beating to get signed up to ask you a question! Well, it is not actually a question, I just wanted to say I'm so excited that you are putting up stories too! I do the richierichcomicsfanclub wordpress blog and I am happy to not be the only one putting up fun Richie stories. It's also good to have different viewpoints, mine is girlier and fluffier and yours is more manly and sarcastic. I like it!
Hooray! Shout out to this other Richie Rich blog and the brave soul who writes it and took the time to deal with tumblr’s terrible UI to successfully register and message me.
I can imagine Richie intruding on that Duke the Dog ad. Richie is followed by a pair of servants walking dozens of regal, purebred German Shepherds, each trained by master obedience instructors to operate ziplines and periscopes, all dwelling in their life-size underground fortresses he built for them. Richie passes by smiling long enough to make a stupid pun ("Cash-canine" something), before heading back home. He orders the hounds cut loose ("anywhere"). He's bored of them now.
This is simultaneously really funny/clever and profoundly depressing.
I get the feeling you're a marvel kinda guy. Now all we need is for Punisher to be in a Richie Rich comic, just like he was in Archie Comics.
ok everyone who doesn’t care about my rambly comix opinions stop reading here
i actually hate shared-universe superhero comics because i feel like the benefits aren’t worth the limitations it imposes on creators. i am not opposed to superheroes as a genre but i tend to gravitate to creator-owned and/or self-contained stuff.
to give an idea of what kind of comix i DO like, my favorite (non-web) comix are flex mentallo, we3, joe the barbarian, scott pilgrim, ben edlund’s original the tick series, chew, bloom county (yes the 80s newspaper strip, i have the big hardcover collections from fantagraphics), and garth ennis’ punisher MAX series (which is basically a gritty miserable vigilante crime comic not set in the marvel U where frank is a broken human being and typically the lesser evil and not so much a glorious hero)
