Still the weekend

Another quick one for the last dailies of 2006:

Bo-nanas by John Kovaleski
Cow and Boy by Mark Leiknes
Sally Forth by Francesco Marciuliano and Craig Macintosh

All strips that appeared here this week appeared only once. That's a rare thing.

Three today:

Bob the Squirrel
Garfield by Paws Inc.
Piranha Club by Bud Grace

Is that a fat joke? At least that way it might be close to funny.

Just one

Really, just one?

Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley

Monty doesn't quite count, the gag is in the silent panel.

In fact, a good way to ruin the gag would be to listen to me too much and put some words in the penultimate panel. As in, "Monty, your hat does not look like what we expect a hat to look like."

I'm not as dogmatic as some may think.

Boxing Day

Well, welcome back. The watch returns with two silent penultimate panels:

Adam@Home by Brian Basset
Luann by Greg Evans

For the home statisticians, we will not retroactively count SPPs from the previous three days. As far as our official records are concerned, the twenty-third through twenty-fifth of December didn't exist.

Hi & Lois and Sally Forth:

For unknown reasons, Boxing Day jokes don't work. It certainly seems like it should--it's peculiar, it's British, it has a funny name. But it's a barren field where no jokes will grow. A joke about Boxing Day is about as funny as a joke about Columbus Day.
