SoSfDavidO here, and wow, do I ever hate Funky & Co in Today’s strip! The band box got sent off for repairs a few weeks ago and now it’s back. Funky, Crazy Harry, Holly and more turn out for the box’s triumphant return like the thing is Westview’s biggest celebrity. Cheer, clap, dance, take photos, play music, roll credits.
So why does this bother me so much?
Contrast this homecoming with the “Here’s your damn trombone.” homecoming Wally Winkerbean received when returning from being an Iraqi POW for, and I can’t repeat this enough, ten years. Where is Wally now? Can’t they even bother to ask him to come up front from the dishwashing area to say hi to everyone?
Grr. Maybe it’s intentional, and this is all some long, drawn out way of showing how our country disrespects out veterans somehow but I doubt it.
