: Little Osbourne Can Fly
Feb 22, 2006

See you little guy, hardly knew yuh!

My grandpa taught me to play golf, many years ago. It was surprisingly fun, I still get to play every once in an occasion. I kind of have a Happy Gilmore style where I tee off and hit the ball incredibly far and straight, and my game is pretty much done there. I have to hope for the best on chips and puts. Sometimes that’s why I just like to go to the driving range. ItΓ―ΒΏΒ½s a great way to relieve stress too. At any rate, this is not the last you will see of golfing in the comic, we’ll pick up on it again. Can you imagine golfing in Antarctica? Finding the ball could prove to be a real pain, probably go for the orange ones over white. πŸ˜‰

Elephant Seals Dive For Science

I’ve mentioned Elephant Seals in the news posts before (not to mention the comic one was in) in the World Records Antarctica posts I did. The elephant seal took a record for the largest pinniped (seal family) and also for lung endurance. One bull weighed nearly 9,000 lbs and stretched out over 21 feet. They can dive 6000 feet deep and hold their breath for up to two hours. These diving abilities have earned them a job with scientists.

Basically scientists are gluing data recorders to their little heads.

These devices are recording information about the water temperature and salinity at different depths and broadcasting it back to the scientists. This will help them understand more about whatΓ―ΒΏΒ½s going on in the waters of the Southern Ocean as well as the global climate. Click here for the full article from BBC.

    Did you see that Mooch & Earl have a little penguin visitor in “Mutts” this week? They’ve been chatting about penguins flying / not flying.

    Thanks for the great comic strip! I just love how Wally & Osbourne get along. My mom, brother & I got a chuckle when I first discovered your strip… About 20 years ago Mom received as a gift – Wally Bear. You guessed it, a white teddy bear with a physique much like your Wally. Wally Bear is Mom’s travelling companion, and can often be found sitting on a pillow, buckled in to the front passenger seat of her car when he’s not hanging out watching tv with Mom. How did our Wally Bear receive his name? He bears the name of one of his previous owners – Fr. Wally! (Wally Bear often made guest appearances in Fr. Wally’s sermons.)

    Keep up the great work!! I look forward to finding out what happens next with Wally & Osbourne. πŸ˜€

    Didya know that there is arctic golf, here in Finland where I live they play arctic golf at winter on the northern parts of country (Called “Lappi or lapland” Its over arctic circle), most parts of the year they play just normal golf but in november when the snow normally falls these madmen push trough piles and piles of thick snow just to hit the friggin ball to small hole (the hole is alot bigger at winter.), one of the biggest problems is that the day lasts just few hours and the the sun sets (and for few weeks the sun doesΒ΄nt even rise!) and hitting the ball in dark is kinda hard (I think).
    By the way they use bright orange balls.

    I just love how Osbourne actually plays along with Wally in the first frame…….how often we do that with little kids when they play ‘pretend’. But then Wally brings it to another level…….keeps Osbourne wondering about this polar bear he befriended….hmmmm…

    SuperVegito: I think you mean “Fore”.

  6. Ashley says:

    I like golf. well, mini golf that is, its very entertaining, but I’ve never seen a polar bear playing golf in Antartica. lol Thank would be very cold, and like you said with the searching thing, lol. Well. have a great day!

  8. Anya says:

    What does Wally eat???


    this comic makes me envius of all the people who live where it snows πŸ™

  10. Kevin says:

    Umm…. where did Wally get the golf club? Yes, I am being pedantic.

  11. Tyler Martin says:

    Bridg8, cool story about the Wally bear! Very cool. I’ll check out Mutts too.

    Diiba, wow I had no idea. It seemed possible and entertaining. I usually look stuff up like that but didn’t think to with snow golf. I definately will before any golfing happens again in the strip.

    Lil, yeah, I think Osbourne enjoys the fun Wally brings… and Wally keeps him on his toes.

    Anya, he eats chocolate, and whatever else he can scrounge from research stations and their garbage.

    Sorry you get no snow Michael. Haven’t seen much snow around here this year either.

    Kevin, he won it in a poker game. πŸ™‚
