So, some not particularly inspiring rhetoric from ‘this Darwin kid’ in panel one nevertheless allows him to stumble into the correct conclusion in panel two.

Bonus Points:

Tricky Dick Travolta, you will always make me smile.

My favorite windows make a subtle return.

I defy anyone to explain the meaning of ‘GO JDLAY’S’


  1. I think that sign reads “GO JDLAW” and is directed at Knox Foley.

    “This Darwin Kid”? I feel a rare song parody post coming on.

    I would go long tonight
    But I haven’t got a ball to throw…

  2. Have we established just who is the Dobbs whisperer? We know his name is Alan, he’s from L.A. He’s wearing white after Labor Day. Let’s go with Machiavellian puppet-master. Poor poor Holly, just a pawn in the Star Machine

  3. Is that Travolta or funnyman Bobby Bittman in panel 3?

  4. HOW ARE YA!!

    How are ya??!!

    Sammy, as a comic in all seriousness….

    His name is Alan. He always wears the white suit. He (or another Tricky Dick Nixon Funnyman Bittman in a white suit) met with Holly in LA before she flew to Milford. Now he’s here meeting with her regularly. He must be Reality TV Exec Alan Tricky Dick Nixon Bittman. (How are you?)

  5. Perhaps we’re watching Alan Winter, Executive in Charge of Production at Astrum Productions, LLC, located in Los Angeles. However, his LinkedIn photo has him dressed considerably less snazzy than our mystery Bittman.

    Utopia, the Reality TV(!) show he and Astrum associate to, cost Fox $50 million and lasted but one season.

    IMDb shows Alan Winter is also associated with Top Gear USA, so there’s that too.

  6. Wait… do I see an outline in that bonfire? Could it be? Oh my God, it’s Bob Roth!

  7. Safety Protip: Always light your bonfire at least ten feet away from nearby buildings.

  8. Since the name “Dick” keeps being connected with the pinwheel in the white suit, I am thinking it could be the young Dick Tuck.

    Tuck was a Democratic operative during the 1968 presidential campaign. Posing as a GOP advance man, he went a couple of days ahead of the Nixon whistle stop campaign, and when the local high school band directors asked for suggestions on what to play as the campaign train rolled in, he told them Nixon’s favorite song was “Mack the Knife…”

  9. While Holly may be a succubus, even she is manipulated by a greater evil…

  10. […] can the bonfire be annual if we haven’t seen it in four years? Oh yeah – the good ol’ tell, don’t show. Young Jerry Lewis seems unfazed as he […]
