The sound of a herd of stampeding wild hamsters.




We haven't had a day like this in a while--five silent penultimate panels. Let me take a breath and list them all.

Monty by Jim Meddick
Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis
Prickly City by Scott Stantis (two days running)
Red and Rover by Brian Basset
Sherman's Lagoon by Jim Toomey

Yesterday, I wondered if some cartoonists were over-explaining their jokes with unnecessary captions. Today's Red and Rover seems to be an example of the opposite problem. Sometimes the joke in the cartoonist's head is just so obtuse, it's impossible to follow the logic that leads to the punchline. In other words, they just don't make no sense.


Say what?

Maybe Brian Basset is a Weird Al fan... Al has a penchant for random bizarre comments involving hamsters, as well as other rodents.

OK, I'm wondering about today's "Agnes". The SPP is there, but I'm debating in my head whether the strip is better with it. With it, it seems like Agnes is searching her memory; without it, it could too abrupt.

Hmm...well, I leave this in the capable hands of the SPP Master.
