Still in business

Things are back on track--five silent penultimate panels today.

Andy Capp by Roger Mahoney and Roger Kettle
Luann by Greg Evans
Prickly City by Scott Stantis
Red and Rover by Brian Basset
Sheldon by Dave Kellet

(Thanks Ugliness Man and Dave.) This is actually the second SPP in a row for Red and Rover. I got Ugliness Man's daily email late and missed yesterday's.

At the risk of getting political again: It's funny (as in peculiar) to me that the coyote, the left-wing straw-man, is rushing off to liberate hamsters while the conservative girl is the sober voice of reason cautioning against the attack.

And while I'm on Prickly City, I might as well get to Mallard Fillmore.

Fillmore scolds readers who disagree with him and tells them to "pick up a newspaper sometime." Dude, Fillmore...Where do you think I'm reading you? Scratched on a bathroom stall? You know what, Fillmore, the only reason you have the circulation you do is because papers want to balance out the left-wing leanings of Doonesbury. You know what that means? It means you're in my paper because of a quota. It's not merit. It's a quota. Ha.

Prickly City isn't remotely funny or clever even when I agree with the opinions in the comic. I consider that good evidence that I don't dislike it JUST because it presents contrary opinions.

Maybe if somebody literally beats the Malard Filmore guy over the head with a flag, he will understand how it can be done metaphorically as well.

At the very least, somebody would get to beat the Mallard Filmore guy over the head.

Just when I was about to write you off as a hypercritical waste of time, you go and give Mallard Fillmore a brilliant thump with a cluebat. Outstanding!
