Orlando Bloom Has Ruined Everything : A Fox Trot Collection
"Orlando Bloom Has Ruined Everything" lampoons memorable moments from 2003 and 2004, such as the East Coast blackout. In the "FoxTrot" version, an "ink outage" renders several days' strips only partially drawn. "I called Funky Winkerbean. He says the ink's out over the entire grid," Jason reports.
In another series of strips, Jason's latest money-making scheme involves creating an animated film to rival the box office blockbusters of Pixar and Dreamworks: "It's the tender story of a leech's search for his missing son. I'm calling it "Finding Hemo."
The success of "FoxTrot" has yielded consequences creator Bill Amend may never have imagined. The strip has been used as a question on the game show "Jeopardy!" and as an answer in the "New York Times" crossword. It's a fitting irony that "FoxTrot" has become a fixture of pop culture, the very phenomenon it parodies with such keen wit.Universal Press Syndicate newspaper feature:
