Well, there was the one about the man with two wives: one older, the other
younger. The former liked his gray hair, and would comb it and pick out the
black ones; the latter liked his black hair, and would comb it and pick out
the gray ones. He ended up bald :^)

I don't remember the wording of the moral though...

Put another way: there aren't enough older readers to sustain a comic just for
them - look what happened to other furry comics (e.g., Captain Carrot, etc.)
