It's a barkeater
That's it, it's a record-tying day at the watch:
Cow and Boy by Mark Leiknes
Monty by Jim Meddick
Overboard by Chip Dunham
That's right, that's five dailies in a row for Overboard, Dunham has completed a barkeater. If he continues tomorrow, he will be setting the record for consecutive silent penultimate panels.
Or maybe not...
Because it's not quite a classic silent penultimate panel. Am I ignoring my own rules and being unfair just for the sake of my own blog?
And, because of the different and longer format, we count Sundays and dailies, separately. But Overboard continualy uses a four-panel Sunday, (a sin in its own right.) So should yesterday's SPP-free strip count as breaking the streak?
Well, I say it counts. Today's penultimate panel isn't necessary and it creates an awkward rhythm. And Sundays just don't count. We need to be consistant here. After all, this is serious work I'm doing.
