And yesterday I promised to explain some near-misses.
In FoxTrot, the silence is the response to the question, and therefore the "joke" rests on that silence. Not very funny, but not at all superfluous.
In On the FastTrack, the third panel reveals the result of the action in the second panel. The rhythm wouldn't have worked quite as well if the last panel's dialogue was included along with that "reveal".
And Get Fuzzy is the more obvious one, Bucky's not just "staring" he's attempting some sort of evil eye... it's pretty much the most important part of the gag.
Well, once again my time is up, Matt returns tomorrow. Have a good weekend all!
