This comic strip must have been in a car accident. It was hit so hard all the jokes fell out.
Seems like Bats became as sick of this gag as everyone else was…days ago. “Funky Names His Car”…the new gold standard of weak filler arcs. Of course it’ll be usurped from its throne within a few weeks or so, but whatever.
is Funky blowing snowballs steering wheel with wife in car?maybe some funky foreplay
Please, Cell Phone Lady, come back and finish what you started….
“Okay, we’re finished playing, ‘I’ve named the car.'”
Funky parks in front of his restaurant all day, taking one of the prime spots for his customers? Dick.
I keep doing these. I think it must be some kind of disease. Some kind of fatal brain disease that will kill me.
Soon, I hope.
PS: I was going to have Holly sing “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” but I didn’t want to ruin the song. “Berlin” is way more apt, too.
….and still his cracker-jack assistant Durwood is no where to be found.
Must have jumped ship over to Kahn’s Deli. Think he and jessica got he hint when Les locked them out?
You say “filler” as if this strip is normally full of substance.
Interesting how TomBat has just enough awareness of how irritating his characters are to have a comic like today’s, if only he could do some of that “writing” to eliminate antagonizing readers.
Funky sure is bloated in panel 1, seems like two time jumps had a real harsh effect on him, as he appears to be pushing 70.
Wow, Flunky is shaped like a bowling pin. Wotta fatass.
Next: Flunky buys a jar of mayonnaise and spends a whole fuggin’ week naming that.
OMG Holly! Funky is not talking about the goddam car! Leap! Run for your life! The man’s a deviated pre-vert.
“Hey Funky, what’s new? Didn’t your son Cory just graduate from high school? He was such an unpredictable rebellious kid too. What an exciting time for you and your family! Does he have plans for summer, or for next year? Is he working or traveling? Did you use this as a chance to forge new connections with him, like go on a trip together to celebrate?
Oh. Oh, you named your car. How… whatever.”
bad wolf: I get the feeling that come next September, Cory will be in Les’ class again, smirking, sleeping, and wearing his neck chain. No explanation ever given.
You think it was continuity brain fart to show Goatee Boy weighing in on Fatass’s new car. I understand Bat Hack originally had Lisa commenting on it. Batty’s editor checked in from the Crab Nebula long enough to point out, correctly, that Lisa had indeed previously died of boredom with Les cancer, and thus should not be talking to Flunky.

Of course. Les needs someone to chap his ass over his puns and bon mots (mauvais mots?) so he can sigh about how terrible kids are today. Owen’s the resident doofus, and he’s been portrayed sympathetically, especially after he decided Summer was his fantasy girl! Cody is even less appropriate, because he’s mini-Les, and thus wouldn’t chap Les’s ass over anything.
Short of introducing a new character, he’s stuck with Cory.
I wonder if Batiuk would have Mallory slide into this role, but for some reason, I can’t imagine him having a girl harassing his avatar. It’d be too shameful, both for having her chap his ass, and for having him smack her down.
The best part of this whole story arc was today’s title.
