THE FOOTBALL GAG

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

This simple act, portrayed in a comic strip, has always been a part of my life.

It’s a matter of trust.

When you trust, you run the risk of having the “football” pulled from you and you will fall flat on your butt.

All at your own expense.

Think about it.

Apply it to the current political climate.

The football gag is a joke that has been featured many times in Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip, Peanuts.

There have been several variations on the joke over the years.

The football gag has also been included in some Peanuts animated television specials.

The characters involved in the gag are Charlie Brown and Lucy van Pelt.

Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she will hold a football while he kicks it.

Charlie Brown usually refuses to kick it at first, not trusting Lucy.

Lucy then says something to persuade Charlie Brown to trust her.

Charlie Brown runs up to kick the ball, but at the very last second before he can kick it, Lucy removes the ball and Charlie Brown flies into the air, before falling down and hurting himself.

The gag usually ends with Lucy pointing out to Charlie Brown that he should not have trusted her.

Where in the world is Waldo? …. He found himself!!


~~June 30, 2014~~ 

Where in the world is WALDO?

He separated from himself and became one with the universe.

He has grown, has matured and decided to be his own person. 

I’m very happy for you, Waldo. Your travels most likely made you weary. Now you have found peace.

Where’s Wally? (known in the United States and Canada as Where’s Waldo?) is a series of children’s books created by British illustrator Martin Handford.

The books consist of a series of detailed double-page spread illustrations depicting dozens or more people doing a variety of amusing things at a given location. Readers are challenged to find a character named Wally hidden in the group. Wally’s distinctive red-and-white-striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses make him slightly easier to recognize, but many illustrations contain “red herrings” involving deceptive use of red-and-white striped objects. Later entries in the long-running book series added other targets for readers to find in each illustration.

The books have also inspired a TV show, comic strip and a series of video games.

~~Characters~~

Wally, whose name was localized for international editions: In the first two books, Wally wandered alone; he was the only person or thing that could be found in every illustration in the books. Over time, more characters were added to find in each scene.
Wilma, Wally’s friend first appeared in the Ultimate Fun Book, and was replaced by her identical twin sister Wenda in the Where’s Wally: The Magnificent Poster Book.
Wenda, A friend of Wally who replaced her twin sister Wilma for In Hollywood (although she previously appeared in The Magnificent Poster Book).
Odlaw, Wally’s nemesis, who made his print debut in The Magnificent Poster Book. He appears nearly the same as Wally, except that his clothes are yellow and black striped instead of red and white; his glasses have a blue tint to them; and he has a moustache. Although we are told “his bad deeds are many,” he is not depicted in the books doing anything particularly nasty. However, in the T.V. series, he is frequently seen to be attempting to steal Wally’s magical walking stick. Note that the name “Odlaw” is simply a reversal of the spelling of “Waldo,” the American name for Wally, although he is called “Odlaw” in the UK as well.

Woof, Wally’s dog, first appeared in The Ultimate Fun Book, where he was identified as Wenda’s dog. Only his tail can be found with the exception of the final page of Where’s Wally: The Wonder Book, which depicts all of Woof, and the six activity books released between 1993 and 1995 (the first book of which is titled The Truly Terrific Activity Book), where Woof shows himself to the reader.
Wizard Whitebeard, first seen in The Fantastic Journey. His signature is his exceptionally long beard, which is often the key to finding him. In his first appearance, he was responsible for sending Wally on a quest to discover the truth about himself, and he has tagged along on Wally’s travels ever since. His appearance in The Ultimate Fun Book, however, is in just one scene (“Old Friends”) and his presence is unmentioned in the book and acts as one of the background characters.
The Wally Watchers are Wally’s devoted fan-club that first appeared in Where’s Wally? The Ultimate Fun Book (1990). They turn up wherever Wally goes, dressed in the same red-and-white striped outfit. 25 appear in most books, though there are 99 of them in the Ultimate Fun Book.
