Seven




That is one, two, three, four, five, six, seven silent penultimate panels today. This might be the biggest single day in our short history:

Andy Capp by Roger Mahoney and Roger Kettle
Barkeater Lake by Corey Pandolph
Cow and Boy by Mark Leiknes
Garfield by Jim Davis Industries
Peanuts (1959 reprint) by Charles Schulz
Red and Rover by Brian Basset
Sheldon by Dave Kellet

And look at Doonesbury--a silent second panel.



It really serves the same function as the SPP. The punchline is in the third panel and the fourth is the post-joke trail off that is used to extend an awkward situation. But that is not what we count here--so it's off the watch.

The weird thing is, that Doonesbury would be funnier if the silent second panel WAS pentultimate.

There's a SPP in today's "The Order of the Stick" (an excellent D&D Parody webcomic):
