News post – Catch-23 No. 942 Winter is here

In the Game of Thrones, winter has been coming for quite a while now. Now that this prophesized winter is finally wintering, it stands to reason that summer must be well on the way. What better way to celebrate the murder of every single person in Westeros than a sunny summer beach party?

News post – Catch-23 No. 941 Duck Pond

This strip was inspired by seeing a whole piece of white bread floating in a duck pond near our house. There are signs asking you not to feed the ducks, and there is the no shortage of info on the internet telling you that bread, especially modern highly-processed white bread, is just not good for Daisy and Donald, but the urge to feed bread to ducks is obviously strong on the genetic level for some.

That thing about birds and rice, though, not true. Birds like uncooked rice and it doesn’t make them sick or explode. Hashtag birdfacts

News post – Catch-23 No. 940 Not so fast, Beagle Boy

If women-only screenings of Magic Mike XXL were announced, no eyebrows would be raised. But do so for Wonder Woman – which is a traditionally male-dominated super hero genre movie – and the entitled man-babies come out of the woodwork.

Fellas, it’s hard to see from the inside of all this male privilege, so let me help: basically the entire world is a men-only screening. This tipping of the scale is trying to right so much imbalance.

News post – Catch-23 No. 939 Mystery box

I always end up watching a bit of MasterChef each season, even though my own cooking skills are not exactly noteworthy.

Danielle suggested that if people were on the cooking show menu, the current MasterChef catch-phrase ‘this is me on a plate’ should get a look in, but I couldn’t make it work with the planned set-up.
