Summer Dropouts

SoSfDavidO here, ready for an all-new storyline!

It’s Monday in late January so it doesn’t make sense that Summer is hanging around helping yet another group of doomed souls move into the apartment above Montoni’s but here she is in today’s strip still wearing her shapeless burlap hoody. You’d think her coming home to visit for the first time in a lonnnnng time would warrant a bigger story line than MyPod music recommendation algorithms but apparently not! She isn’t even given a line. Aside from the lifting duties she may as well be a potted plant.

  1. Naturally, the womenfolk schlep the boxes with ease, while Les is a weak, careless, clumsy douchebag.

    Summer is not given a line, but someone off-panel is. The only unaccounted-for member of the Moore-Williams clan is Keisha, could this be her annual appearance?

    Probably so, with TB pushing her off panel in a clever attempt to disguise the fact that he has forgotten what she looks like.

    Ya know, working for a moving company would be a solid job for a pair of college dropouts… just not these two college dropouts.

    It doesn’t explain why Jessica didn’t move out to Hollyweird with her husband when he first left, but hey, a FW plot thread is moving and that’s big news around these parts. I’m also wondering why Summer is always around for these things, especially considering how we’re right in the middle of basketball season and all. Does she EVER attend classes? Will she EVER ditch that hairdo and those hoodies?

    And get a load of old Dick Face, ever the bumbling idiot. Maybe he’d be able to pay more attention if he’d drop the self-satisfied smirking for a second but there’s no chance of that ever happening. What a dick.

  4. And Summer manages to not only completely fail the “sexy lamp” test, but has reached the point where a sexy lamp would probably be more useful and interesting.

  5. Could the box-dropper be Keisha, since the crash and voice seem to come from off panel to the right while the members of the Dead St. Lisa cult appear to be off to the left (which could just be another example of The Author’s inability to be consistent.)

    Speaking of Keisha, if you look at the Christmas drawing on Batiuk’s blog, he has Les, Cayla, Summer, Darin, Jessica and Skyler visiting the Fairgoods on (presumably) Christmas. Who’s missing from that?

  7. It’s funny because Les’s physical ineptitude has destroyed someone’s valuable belongings. Also, grandchildren have nothing to contribute to the conversation so must be silent.

    Isn’t basketball season in full swing right about now?

    Oh wait….. The kent state women’s BB team is 3 and 14…. So much for princess snowflake and her sidekick Super K. They’ve probably been kicked off the team and lost their scholarships . Some senior year. Maybe they will move back to Westview and live above Montonis.

  10. Keisha asked for a trade to a more relevant comic strip. She’s studying to be Mary Worth’s home aide after Mary falls and breaks a hip.

    More smirk required.

  12. Since Les is no longer in the panel when the OOPS-CRASH!! occurs, I’m assuming that’s the sound of him dropping his smirk on the floor.


    I really hope Les is hurt badly. I mean very badly. Broken glass shards in the face. Two or three broken ribs. Broken femur bone sticking through the skin…

    .,,,Look I’m sorry…But when you have make a face like that in Panel 1, how can you not want severe pain inflicted upon that person?

    @ Spaceman Spiff
    I assume that Keisha may have been spending Christmas with her heretofore unseen father. Her mother lives with Les Moore. I assume that Keisha may spend every holiday and school break, as well as most of her adult life with her father’s family from now on. More power to her. She has escaped.

  15. It’s so boring to read Funky Winkerbean, but it must be even worse to write and draw it. Is he continuing this only out of hatred for his critics?
