Meet the Pattersons

We've talked about this feature before, but I don't think there's ever been a separate post about it, and I think it deserves one. I've been reading the "Meet the Pattersons" page on the FBofW site in order to make my Foobsims. The first thing I noticed: no link for April. There's a Farley Patterson link, though. Second thing I noticed: on the "friends and influences" page, Deanna and Anthony are listed under "kids" along with Michael and Elizabeth. April is also listed, but there is no link to a page for her.

A few other oddities: babysitters who showed up in one or two strips are linked. Jim is linkless, though Iris isn't. Ted is not listed; neither is Jean. There are a disproportionately high number of people with blond hair. Tiny women and giant men abound -- it's like watching humans with hobbits. I'm sure there are many more strange tendencies that I haven't noticed.

On a slightly different note, I've been reading some of the old strips to try to get a handle on the personalities of characters I want to make into Sims. After reading the strips about the birth of Leah, I couldn't take any more. At least for me, there will be plenty to snark in the years to come.

And here's the link to pictures of my Foobsims:
