Coffee Talk: the naming of the Foobs.....

In today's entry, Lynn tells the lucky correspondent about the process by which she chose the character's names. She starts off with the Core Four, talks about how she came up with the names of the more immediate ancillary characters and explains away the tertiary characters' names by making reference to a hat, which she lost, from which she picked out gems like Kelpfroth and Luggsworth. This is odd because not only can we see this in 'Q and Eh?', I thought that she'd promote the DVD for The Bestest Present.

So far, a pattern has emerged for the week: Elly sucking at training Farley because she's so dumb, she can't (as jospehusrex said) tell piss from apple juice. I'd like to think that Lynn would get to "Mike is far too affectionate with Farley for the puppy's good" this week but a point needs to be hammered into the ground.

It's the reprint that has Elly standing outside in a housecoat shivering and yelling GO!!!!! at Farley because he's taking his time urinating.

Again, this is not how to housetrain a puppy. This is how to be a stupid pet owner because all you do is unnecessarily frighten him. Sadly, we know that Elly's impatience ends up turning what could have been a really great dog into a shaggy, lumbering annoyance so any humor is lost.
