Four silent penultimate panels for this Monday:

Drabble by Kevin Fagan
Monty by Jim Meddick
Mutts by Patrick McDonnell
Sherman's Lagoon by Jim Toomey

It looks like Kevin Fagan might not have originally intended to use an SPP today.

But, after a few failed attempts at dialog in the third panel, he just erased the balloons and added some lines to June's mouth to make it look (sort of) like she was smiling.
(I read Drabble every day of my life, and I had to do a Google search to find out the wife's name. I should either pay more attention or just stop bothering with it all together.)

Yeah. Kevin Fagan himself said that he gets asked what the wife's name is, because Ralph calles her "honey bunch" and the kids, obviously, calls her "mom".

I do remember one Sunday strip from 2 years ago where June's friend referred to her by name, but that's probably the most recent example.

You mean that's his Wife? Good lord, that's disgusting- I though they were related.

Anyway, you've got to love a SPP that's still funny out of context, and I have to admit that one from Monty is a genuinely silly drawing.

Nice work by Kevin Fagan by eliminating the dialogue in the penultimate box. It gave the impression of suspense or rather excitement. Is there such a thing in the comic strip world as delayed gratification.
