I have always been a follower of Ginger.  Do I get an invitation to the party?  His two pets don't seem to be featured as often, nowadays.  I particularly like the little text messages.

There was a lawsuit in the days of "Us Fellers" between the creator of Ginger and the creator of the NSW strip, "Fatty Finn", which was included in my first batch of roneoed materials at law school. As I recall, it happened because Ginger's strip had used one word that the opposition cartoonist considered copyright.
