“How not to advance the plot” for dummies

I really thought today was gonna reveal something about Keri’s odd personality but no– we flip back to last Tuesday. The only problem with that is we dont even know what today is. I thought we had Marjie D AND football back too, but it was too good to be true. Back to the uneven nonsense that this new plot has become. I forgot all about the Linda Lindas until today. Their need to be in this strip is next to zero. Didnt we just look at 2 newspaper issues back to back, 1 telling a blatant lie and the next exagerating a high school football matchup before it happens? When did games have previews that warranted front page headlines, even in a rag like this one?

One thing that hasnt changed is this late season football. Its Veterans Day and we’re still in mid-season form. Get on the stick or we’ll have Frosty saying “Happy Birthday!” before the final gun is fired.

Hard to believe the Linda Lindas were at the school library so late that Keri cant get up the next morning. Cant they schedule this hoo-ha on a Friday or Saturday night?? Check another ‘makes no sense’ box.

In honor of Hurricane Nicole thats currently ravaging Florida our song today will be this rarely heard gem from Point Blank in 1983. I swear I’ve had Sirius radio for 12 years and havent heard this played once. Its way too good to be so off the map. Of course in high school I heard it all the time.



  1. Keri is not getting up is not the day after, but a week after this concert. So it’s not because of getting home late, I’m guessing it has to do with something that happened at the concert and then the active shooter drill. (I’m assuming her not getting up is the day after her crying and wanting to go home after the drill.)

  2. The shooting drill was October 29, 13 days ago.

  3. Now that I played that video, I do vaguely recall that being on the radio for a while. But like 40 years ago! Surprised it showed up in my memory.

  4. The Linda Linda’s in the library are no bullshit:

  5. Excellent title, Rob. You captured it perfectly. You da Man.

    I am currently listening to University of Kentucky basketball as I have for ages(I just love basketball) and I love Jack “Goose” Givens(‘78, baby!!!!!!!) and his keen apercu on the action. But sheesh, he’d have a hard time if UK was at halftime, then 3 minutes into the first half, then 7 minutes left in the game, then 45 seconds into the first half, etc. Wouldn’t blame you for just putting down the mike, Goose.

    That caption in P3 sums up the myriad storylines getting thrown at us at tornado speed, even though the rebuilding appears to be moving slower than the destroying.

  6. Wait a minute… Didn’t we already do this? I distinctly remember us already discussing the Linda Lindas a couple months back??

  8. The discussion of the Linda Lindas was that they were planning to go to the concert. But we didn’t actually see them go to the concert.

  9. […] a look at yesterday’s strip, then take a look at the thumbnail from the Linda Lindas video in franku2016’s comment on yesterday’s post, the same thumbnail I used in my September 21 post. What stands out the […]
