Max Bacon, They Don’t Get Any Greasier Than You

I dare you to try and unsee this.

There are so many disturbing aspects to this strip that I don’t know where to begin.

Does Marty Moon use little papery ear bonnets on his ham radio headgear? I’ve found myself wondering if that crinkly part right next to his ear is covered in a protective bonnet or if he’s barebacking those vinyl ear cushions right up against his sweaty head.

I’ll let the the rest of you lot chime in on the more “in your face” elements of disturbance present here. Have a field day! (I’ll bet some dirty minded curmudgeon is sharpening his knives over at the cool kids’ table.)

I would like to chime in on one thing though. I think Max is a little behind the curve on the whole Bacon thing. Don’t get me wrong. Americans are still in love with bacon. (That sharp witted observer of the zeitgeist, Mallard Fillmore, raved on for days about bacon scented deodorant, Zing!) But I think bacon’s days as a unique marketing hook are in the past. I’d stake my claim to something like Kale or Quinoa. Granted, Maxwell is mostly working with what he was given, but he’s chooing to key in on the most cliched part. Maybe he should emphasize the Maxwell part. This is Maxwell’s House! Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine, call me Dr. Dish! That’s just off the top of my head!



  1. I think even Marty’s disturbed by this. Not even Speedco coffee dregs with nondairy creamer and a generous serving of rotgut could prepare one for the two-pronged attack on our sensibilities that Bobby Boy-Howdy started.

  2. Come to think of it, I do need to sharpen my kitchen knives. (I’m so suggestible, and I actually did get some barbecue over the weekend, but not from BIG ED’S BBQ.) So f’rinstance, P3 readily suggests that Max is naked from the waist down. P2 brings to mind that weird angle in a recent Judge Parker the cool kids had a field day with.

    I’m still not buying that a kid named “Maxwell” didn’t start going by “Max” starting at, oh, say, before his first birthday. I’m just anticipating the panoply of “Agent 86” references to follow: after his next “BONK!” we can write “Missed it by that much.”

  3. Milford boy’s basketball has 6 All-Americans, would you believe it?

    Would you believe 5 All-Conference players?

    How about a kid named Bacon with a brand/towel manager?

  4. Oh, Mack Swell, turn’s out you’re just a ham, like the rest of the lot.

    I have to agree, (capital K) Kale is getting tons of play in my house lately, especially when it’s sprinkled with Bac~Os.
