Andy Capp still exists



I'm saved today by Ugliness Man who alerted me to today's Andy Capp.

Andy Capp is still around? Wow. And, look, he's coming home drunk again. You know, there are some people who like to say that everything British is better--that the British sense of humor is so much more subtle and sophisticated. Well, spend some time with Andy Capp and then get back to me.

There were no silent penultimate panels in the L.A. Times today. Though there are some that might be confused for one.



Doonsebury's penultimate panel reveals essential information, in fact it's the joke itself.




And Drabble's silent panels show progressive action. (It's still not funny, though.)

Also of note is today's (4/11) Middletons. Particularly egregious because the rhythm of the silent panel adss exactly zero to the strip.

British humor's subtle?
Benny Hill, anyone?

But God bless Andy Capp for proving that alcoholism and soupsal abuse can still be comedic staples, right?
