In truth, you probably wouldn’t get that interesting of results from slapping a Fitbit on a cat. It might run around for a while, but cats mostly sleep for their day. A dog on the other hand….

I think a Dave Ramsey chain of restaurants might actually catch on. Tell people they can only eat what they can afford, and constantly lay the guilt on them about it. Might be financially and health responsible.
I’ll never understand how Alf faded away as a cultural icon. Why isn’t he seeing a resurgence of popularity like the Muppets? Sure, he isn’t nearly as funny, but…oh, well, never mind. Got it.
I always love it when people start quoting Sun Tzu to me as management techniques. I think these people spend way too much time worrying about leading rather than actual leading.
The media loves to give a name to everything and then overuse those names. Every battle in Congress suddenly becomes an event. This used to be true with CNN and major events like wars.

Probably. But commercial-free programming for children is a good thing in this world. Even with no kids, I am happy to pay for that.
Facebook is already creepy enough. Introduce anything related to dating or sex and the creepiness factor is multiplied. Introduce death and, well, you have this strip.
