Obscurity of the Day: Jonah, a Whale for Trouble
What I enjoy about this series is that King could have easily made it a pulpit-pounding lesson in morality. If Jonah only went after people who treated him badly this strip would be the same old story that Aesop was telling a millenium or three ago. But King throws us a little curve -- doesn't matter if you treat the little bugger well or badly, you're in for trouble. Unless, of course, you're Teddy Roosevelt, who makes a cameo to show us all that Jonah is not all-powerful. And who better to do that!
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the samples!
