Some real winners today:
Cathy by Cathy Guisewite
Momma by Mel Lazarus
Piranha Club by Bud Grace
Pooch Cafe by Paul Gilligan
Shoe by Gary Brookins and Chris Cassatt

I wasn't going to count it, but Ugliness Man insisted that today's Piranha Club is an SPP. He's right; there is no essential information in the penultimate panel. But I also think this is a case where the beat provided by the SPP is necessary. And I think it's funny.

Ugliness Man, by the way, has become an essential partner in this site, keeping his eye out for SPPs in strips must of us don't dare bother with. All the appearances of things like Garfield, Momma and Cathy are thanks to the Ugly. He has his own blog now at

Momma is nothing horrible, it's nothing to hate, it's just so barely there. It's just sitting right on the edge of non-existence. One gust of wind could just wipe it out of the universe and no one would even notice it missing.

Aw... thanks for the kind words... I keep an eye on approximately 50 titles each day, so including a handful of substandard strips in there is a small sacrifice.
