Some of my favourite Clarence strips were the Culinary Caribou ones. For some reason the title had a certain 'flavour' to it (pardon the bun...er, pun). I like to draw the same scene several times, including checkered tablecloths. Sprinkled in amongst the drawings are a few tasty comments, including a reference for Rashers and Rounders, which I think I mentioned in a previous strip!
This could well be the first time 'Frankum' has been mentioned in a comic strip...correct me if I'm wrong. Toutons have many names, a few of which I've mentioned here but the doughiest panel is no.7...The baby teething bread! I know for a fact that this is true. I once approached Purity Factories to see if they wanted to get an ad done with CTCC doing just this, however, sad to say they were too short sighted to see the appeal and humour of this.
The final panel of course references the 'Cod Moratorium' that was forced on Newfoundland and Labrador by the Federal Government in Ottawa. This was necessary because the Feds had taken most of the licences and sold them to foreign countries until those said countries had decimated the codstocks. Tough luck, Newfs. To this day a person from NL is forbidden by law to reap the harvest of the seas as our forefathers did for 500 years, forbidden to get a meal for the table.
We should have given the whole works of the yahoos in Ottawa the boots from the get go.
But of course that's just an opinion...
