Unless you have owned a Great Dane you, can not fully appreciate the comic strip. Some times they, (the strip) are corny, but most of the time, they are right on. After owning and being around different breeds of dogs, the Great Dane is the most unique. They are family oriented and truly become a member of the family. It seems as though you become their pet, but are very obedient and loyal. To who ever says the Marmaduke comic strip is tasteless, I reccomend they get a Great Dane, their minds will soon be changed. My day would be worthless if I couldn't read the strip every morning.
When you need Marmaduke to keep your life from being worthless then it might be time to end your life.
Yeah. In the very same way I had to own a beagle and a fat cat with telepathic powers to fully appreciate Snoopy and Garfield, respectively.
What you say would be more relevant if the jokes in the strip didn't all boil down to "Marmaduke is big and inconvenient." Having a great dane wouldn't make me appreciate this strip, because this strip is extremely repetitive, which ultimately makes it not funny. The strip being "spot on" about owning a great dane would be fine if it only made that kind of joke once in a while, but ALL of the strip's material consists of this. It's an extremely niche audience, and this makes it a poor strip to be in newspapers.
I don't need to own a great dane to appreciate Marmaduke. I need a run in with Cthulhu. Marmaduke isn't just tasteless, it's filled with madness and uncertainty.
I am crying laughing reading this thread.
"My day would be worthless if I couldn't read the strip every morning."
I feel horribly, horribly sad for you.
i wouldn't say the comic is tasteless, just stupid and poorly put together.
and you say "My day would be worthless if I couldn't read the strip every morning."
you're pathetic. your days still are worthless, you just fail to realize it.
Marmaduke is not merely just a 'great dane' - he's a motherfucking beast of BAAAAZZNNNNNNSHHHSHSHSHSHS Wilson Phillips and Winstone Zeddemore.
I hope, for your sake, that you are a troll.
Where are the older archives?
@Kosovo: here is the URL for the older Marmaduke Explained: http://marmadukeexplained.blogspot.com/. Enjoy.
All Marmaduke strips have the same punchline:
DUUUUR IT'S A DOG
The question is, what is less funny, Marmaduke or Garfield? A nearly impossible question to answer.
at least Jim Davis can draw arms lol
At least Garfield has more than one punchline. I'm actually a fan.
At least with Garfield, the comics can be made surrealistically funny simply by erasing Garfield and his dialog from them. See garfieldminusgarfield.net. Not sure you can do anything like that with Marmaduke.
im watching Monk
and they mention Marmaduke in Mr. Monk and the Paperboy episode
I live in an 18 wheeler and travel the country with a great dane. We share a 6x4 sleeping bunk and I have to fight for every inch of sleeping space. He makes my life miserable. He's rude,selfish,demanding and totally self absorbed. I once had to fight an intruder in the middle of the night. My 4 legged protector simply used this opportunity to stretch out since I gave up my few inches in the bunk. Then he went back to sleep leaving me to my fate.
He steals my food,shreds every bed I've had to put in here and drags my ass up and down the countryside chasing jackrabbits and cats.
I get him the best food money can buy,and he repays me by blowing buffalo farts that can wake the dead.
I read Marmaduke to get a glimpse of what life would be like with a GOOD dane. All the good danes I've had lived short lives. This sucker will be the death of me,I'm sure of it.
I grew up on Sunday comics and always enjoyed Marmaduke.

What the gives, Joe Mathlete? It's been like a week and no updates! What, I'm supposed to read normal Marmaduke, and create snarky comments for it in my head? "Marmaduke explained" validates this schizophrenia! Either update NOW or I will demand a refund.
Could we get an RSS feed just for Marmaduke Explained? I love the column and I don't want to sift through the rest of this site to find it.
Ummm, let me think about that. ... No.
