Light Tiger Peace Grail Race : This made me lose all my respect for Dog Eat Doug. It features the Loch Ness Monster-esque character talking to Sophie about taking selfies and putting them on Instagram. Then she says she's got a Snapchat Q&A in ten minutes. It essentially glorifies iPhones, Selfies, Instagram, and Snapchat, all at once! I just don't understand why old-running cartoons suddenly decide they need things like iPhones to stay with an audience. It's just not funny, and it won't be funny unless you had an expert on satirizing modern day elements, like Pearls Before Swine. Otherwise, it's just insulting.

Do you seriously think that these things are fads? If iPhone was a fad, they would have stopped producing them 6 years ago. if Instagram was a fad, it would be long dead since 2013 (Same for every social network ever, since it's on the Internet it will last forever). Selfies are not a fad, just a thing people does nowadays and will never pass out.

For the Luann entry... Quill is living in America again and his relationship with Luann has continued. I don't want to cancel the D Mo S entries on that, but I'd like to add a note mentioning that, if there's some polite way to do so?

I'm not attempting to contest the moment being a D Mo S for those people, but I do want to be factually accurate if there's any way to do so without breaking the rules of editing.
