The next Wendy’s Kids Meal book

Yes, yes, I do manage to crank three posts out of each of these Wendy’s Kids Meal books. We call that efficient use of information. I also manage to make three meals out of each rotisserie chicken. Anyway, August 1st is the official release date for The World Famous Beagle …

Tip-Top from the Comic-Con

My one-day trip down to the San Diego Comic-Con was loud and crowded and unproductive and yet still worthwhile. I did stop by the Peanuts booth and got the free button of the day – they were all promoting Peanuts on social media sites, and weren’t as cool as the …

How the gang grows up

There are lots of comedic and intellectual attempts to show how the Peanuts characters age – and generally, they are faux comedic or faux intellectual. (I’d place “Riot On Cell Block P”, which can be read for free here or downloaded to your Kindle for 99 cents, into that latter …

A signed sign

I was in Las Vegas yesterday, doing… wait, I think the laws of Las Vegas prohibit anyone from saying what they were doing in Las Vegas. Anyway, I was passing by a memorabilia shop, and the Charlie Brown zig-zag caught my eye. I looked up, and the zig-zag proved to …

Get in Shape, Snoopy

A surprisingly recent addition to the AAUGH.com Reference library is Get in Shape, Snoopy!, a book (well, really, a booklet; it is saddle-stitched, which is the fancy publishing term for held-together-by-staples-at-the-spine). This book, published by Golden Books as part of their Golden Little Look-Look Book series, focuses on peer pressure …
