So, I Took A Little Vacation From The Blog…

May 30, 2017


And this is what I come back to… Nothing wrong with the first two panels of Tuesday’s strip and I even get a kick out of The Bucket supporting the baseball team, confident in the knowledge that they”ll more than make back their advertising spend through increased sales of milkshakes and french fries. But, boy howdy we swerve back to the Volcano hit a girl plotline and I got just about nothing.

  6. Damn, it would have been so awesome if the sign saying “Remember Me?” had a picture of a kid dressed as a hobo.
