Baby Blues

Another three today:
Andy Capp by Roger Mahoney and Roger Kettle
Baby Blues by Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman
Blondie by King Features

I like Baby Blues, but this week's storyline is about leaving the father alone with the kids. Bumbling-father-alone-with-the-kids jokes are just as old and tiresome as women-shopping-for-bathing-suit-jokes. (None of them fit, ha ha.) It's impossible to expect absolute originality three hundred sixty five days each year, but aren't there some less-recycled gags waiting to be recycled?

Out-of-context panel of the day:

It's the exclamation points that make it funny--and the guy pondering the best color for the word balloon above him.
