Eating Out-takes

via It’s time to eat! – MAGcos

Spend an hour with Grandpa and you’re sure to hear something funny. Spend that hour at a restaurant and the hilarious factor increases ten-fold. Grandpa gets the laughs not by telling a scripted joke, but by stating the obvious and telling it like it is. The man’s a comic genius!

Did you know?
Grandpa is a regular Dr. Doolittle. When home alone; Grandpa, Tiger and Butch have a ‘pet-friendly’ understanding. They may not always agree, but they truly are best buds.

Gameplay

He may not want to admit it, but Tiger loves to play games. He literally leaps at the chance to have fun. At Stonewall it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, the hilarious part is how you play the game.

You know, even when Tiger’s not playing he’s having fun. Who woulda thought you could learn so much from a cute little gray and black striped cat!

Did you know?
Dominoes is the game of choice on Stonewall street. There are a lot of things that ‘don’t make no difference‘ but Dominoes isn’t one of them.

Zip-line

It’s no secret that Butch is a very ‘special’ lizard. He has a talent like no other comic-strip character. Sorry, I can’t remember what it’s called but it’s right there on the tip of my tongue. He’s used this unique ability to pick tangerines, eat fries, swipe broccoli and now, to travel by zip-line. Although we’d like to see him test this skill in every ‘sticky’ situation – watching his talent to ‘run‘ has been much more fun!

Did you know?
The chameleon’s tongue fires at lightning speed and on average is roughly twice the length of its body. For a human, that would be a tongue about 10 to 12 feet long! – And you’d need a permit to carry one.

A Comic Cat-alog

via Walking Sticks – MAGcos

Reading Stonewall you’re soon to notice the simple playfulness that purrs out of every page. Of course, if the character in that strip and on that page is a cat, it makes a lot better sense. Cats are found all over the comic and everywhere outside grandpa’s house. If you’re a Mangy Kitten and Beautiful fan, if Moo Cow and Tom tickle your fancy or you simply can’t live without a little dose of White Spot or Silver, you’ve found the ‘purrfect’ website. (okay, I’ll stop now)

Did you know?
When Ben, Brooke, Ruby and Marco visit Grandpa, the cats are always part of a Stonewall welcoming committee. We haven’t seen their calendar, but we’re sure they’re booked every ‘Purrsday’.  (sorry, I couldn’t help it)

Boogie Down

via 3-21-17 – MAGcos

When a 93-year-old and a 13-year-old get together, the hilariousness never gets old. We’d like to think that STONEWALL can bridge a generation gap, or two, or three. And that’s a lot of bridges for one (stone) wall. (tough sell, I know). So, ‘it don’t make no difference‘ if you were born in 1924 or 2004, ‘boys will be boys‘ no matter their age. After all, great-grandpas and great-grandsons are both ‘great’! (and so are Frosted Flakes, apparently)

Did you know?
The cartoonist started to draw STONEWALL when he was eleven. It wasn’t his first comic, he’d been cartooning since he first pushed a pencil. The hand drawn characters and hard-to-read handwriting have left a lasting impression, mostly on paper. (thankfully) There’s a couple of old ‘notebook‘ comics online, if you care to click.

Mosquito

via 3-11-17 – MAGcos

At Stonewall, the predictable is unpredictable and the unpredictable is hilarious. Here’s an example: Tiger, the cat goes on vacation – predictable. While he’s out, someone comes to investigate – the Comic Supervisor! – unpredictable. (Apparently, all the great comic strips have a supervisor. Someone’s got to keep things together.) So, Tiger’s missing and Butch, the lizard has an idea!

Did you know?
Although a lizard might catch a mosquito here or there, they don’t feed on them regularly. Roaches, on the other hand (yikes), might be a pet chameleon’s culnary delight. Um-uh, yes ‘a’ pet chameleon, not Grandpa’s pet chameleon.

WOOOO… It’s Cold!
