The Power of Achewood


Achewood amazes me on a regular basis. Not only do several of the main characters of the strip have blogs in their own voice, but they are now contributing articles to real publications. This latest one has me in stitches.

Ray Smuckles, freelance media mogul and overweight house cat perpetually wearing a black thong, is going to Australia. And he wants to tell us about his feelings on the matter. I quote him:

“England’s loss? You bet. English people are sitting around eating cold trout dishes in a room where every single surface has a different flower print on it, and Australians are barbecuing whole lambs over the fossilised bones of a fifteen-hundred pound paleolithic ant. The keg? An ice silo of lager.”

    i never new Ray was a cat. I’ve never been able to decipher what kind of creature he was. but I don’t think I would have guessed a cat.

    The Australia piece was stokin’. Hilarious. Somebody to replace Dave Berry if I don’t get to it first (or second as the case may be).
