Consecutive streaks

Four silent penultimate panels today, all continuing streaks:

The Duplex by Glenn McCoy (third in a row)
Drabble by Kevin Fagan (second in a row)
La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz (second in a row)
Overboard by Chip Dunham (second in a row)

La Cucaracha has made its entrance to the watch a grand one with two consecutuve days.

Big Al has already commented on the absolute lameness of this week's Drabble run here and here. I bet Norm screws it up again tomorrow. And I bet I won't laugh again tomorrow, either.
Not everyone agrees with my central thesis that the silent penultimate panel is, with rare exception, a useless cliche. I posit that today's Duplex cements the argument in my favor forever.

Am I right, or am I right?

I would have to agree that this is a prime example of the wasted space that most often is the silent penultimate panel. This should be a single panel.
