Don't Dream it's Over

Down-on-his-heels pizza magnate Funky has arrived in New York City with his best friend/flunky Les to “shutter” the apparently already-shuttered Montoni’s East. Les, carrying a cardboard box (the universal symbol of GTFO) tries to cheer up his old friend…but Funky, referring to himself in the third person, informs Les that “it’s over, Johnny….over!”

    First! 🙂

  2. You truly are! Thanks for coming over.

  3. I considered doing this once upon another long absence of SF…. just didn’t
    So I’m on-board.

    Snarking FW along with it’s hack creator is like shooting fish ina barrel.
    If this comic were cute & funny….I’d be outta here.

    Cheers and welcome aboard, Pookster!

    Mmm, wouldn’t it be something if FW got a lot of publicity out of his free pizza and the restaurant turned around!?

    My snarks:

    Remaining inventory? Bitch, please. 🙂 Unless the pizza is already made and frozen in a box, you’re gonna have to make the dough, prepare the ingredients, cook them, etc etc etc, and I don’t exactly see any of the 80 employees you’ve hired in the last who knows how many years around.

    A little caption of “The next day…” on the second panel would have explained it all.

    Well, yeah, I’m on board, too. But just so we’re clear, I kinda like those threads that go on forever, cuz it’s easy to reference previous blogs.

    You think the original S.F. has given it up…?

  7. David O

    Are we gonna start snarking SF now!? 🙂

    “You think the original S.F. has given it up…?”

    That’s no snark, that’s a legit question. It seems like we’ve all been abandoned by SF, who has apparently gone over the hill.

  9. I like having daily posts to snark about.
    there’s a couple other daily blogs I view…so I’ve seen both sides.
    It was fun watching Dan get so worked up about the poor VA in RI…but daily quips will give us fresh material every day.

    No, it wasn’t. And neither was that whole PTSD thing, either.

  11. Sorry but with TB’s disrespect of the whole tale he made that entire tyrst a joke.
    Just because he purported to take on PTSD… Well the ends do not justify the means.

    As Merry Pookster suggests, TB never “took on” PTSD. It was at best a sub-plot device to rev up Wally. TB never mentioned PTSD as such and only once did someone recommend treatment. Unless I missed something, a suspected PTSD story never really rose to a level worth discussing seriously and therein lies the trouble. Dan appears to take every mention or even hint of PTSD as a deadly serious matter. On the other hand, TB offered up so much snarkable material, it was easy to hammer Wally at nearly every turn which gave rise to some heady conflict. Serial POW Wally was a regular Sad Sack (wasn’t that an old comic?), a condition that had nothing to do with PTSD and whatever PTSD TB inlficted on Wally should have been, in my opinion, considered a separate issue.

    I hope that the Wally story has finally subsided and that we can get on with some serious dissing of the Pizza King here at our palatial new digs.

    I don’t “take every mention or even hint of PTSD as a deadly serious matter,” but I do see a need for everybody to come to some middle ground – granted, Batiuk did a badly- written and poorly-researched story, one based solely on the exaggerations, misconceptions, and stereotypes of the post-Vietnam years, but I also didn’t see him as “playing” Wally’s condition or deliberately turning Wally into a parody of PTSD victims everywhere. And while I take PTSD situations seriously, I’m not above a little subject-related humor – but the bulk of that is with PTSD victims who see it for what it is, and not an excuse or permit to get out of hand.

    Couple of OB-servations

    “but I also didn’t see him as “playing” Wally’s condition or deliberately turning Wally into a parody of PTSD victims everywhere.”

    How about a callous disregard of PTSD victims…

    “And while I take PTSD situations seriously, I’m not above a little subject-related humor”

    Very difficult if not impossible to pull off, as we have seen TB nose-dive every time. Here on the blog, it seems that the focus is not PTSD-based humor but rather Sad Sack Wally-based humor. No, there is nothing funny about PTSD. May all my shipmates and other fellow Veterans with the disorder know peace, true inner peace, in their lifetimes.
