Appropos of yesterday’s discussion in comments, we learn that Theo and Bobby – What are they doing in panel one? Are they really supposed to be drinking and talking at the same time? – are shopping at the S Mart, where they bought Big sodas and gazed away from the Yoo Hoo poster.

Hey, speaking of brands, it’s back over to Max Bacon (r) where he’s… sticky? I guess? Sure, that works. More accurately, Max looks a little stocky. It maybe that all of those sugar pills are starting to catch up with him. Nah, maybe he just needs to cut back on the flavored chocolate beverages.

  5. John S, thank you for settling a pizza-eating question from a few days ago. I had thought Bobby was taking a dental impression. The question of how he can talk while doing either remains open, of course.

  6. Who is this “Gil Thorpe” person that the strip is named after?

    By my unofficial count, we are at 31 consecutive strips without an appearance by the “star,” dating back to January 28.

    Not complaining, mind you. Just observin’.

  7. […] used to be called “free publicity” but now it’s called “establishing their brand.” Still, had Kenzie not name-dropped Max, Marjie would never have contacted him, this convo […]
