Airplane food...(it's so horrible, am I right?)
Five that I'm comfortable about today. I'm really trying to be more selective here, marking only silent reaction shots and entirely useless panels. I have been a little lax in the past.

I'm not such a Herman historian that I have any idea what year this strip is from, but evidently it was from a time when a meal on an airplane trip was de rigeur. What a strange concept. The last time I flew, they gave me a pack of croutons and some sort of white puffy cheese spread.
It was also a time when a joke writer, facing the strongest writer's block or the most impossible deadline, could always fall back on an "isn't airplane food horrible?" gag.
(They seem to have been replaced with "aren't reality shows stupid?" gags.)
