Idly surfing some US blogs this afternoon, I came across this cartoon from the "Get Fuzzy" strip. Not sure what we've done to have our manliness impugned from across the pond... (Thanks to Journalism is for Rockstars).

Presumably because we're "DARLING"ton, darling!
My team for forty years, Reading FC, will presumably be the favourites of the literary set in America.

I don't know -- there are two ways to look at it.

One is that the cartoonist, Darby Conley, is big into sports of the US and internationally, so he knows what he's talking about.

The other is that the character, Bucky, notoriously tries to act smarter than he really is and therefore would just center on the team name.

And now I wonder what I've been doing with my past five minutes, deconstructing a comic strip.
