I said I DON’T NEED AN EDITOR, DAMMIT.

cmtWhat have we here?

Country Music Television?
Canine Mammary Tumor?
Congenitally Missing Teeth?
Cervical Motion Tenderness?
Chronic Multiple Tics?

Thanks, Tom, but Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy already has a perfectly good acronym. High five for getting the “C” right, though.

Congratulations to Holly and her Pokemon Go adventure. You can see by the picture she’s caught (left to right) a Jynx, a Weedle, and a Snorlax.

 

cte-edit[Edit]  As reader Erich noted, someone at Comics Kingdom managed to spot Tom’s goof and take care of it before the strip actually went live. I’m leaving my original post as it stands, though.

  1. You know, this could have been an okay story, a farewell to one of the less loathsome characters. I can’t recall ever finding Bull as obnoxious as others I could name.

    Of course, Tom Batiuk can’t do that. He’s got to stick Les in there and ruin what could be Bull’s swan song.

    Of course, I’m kidding, Bull won’t go away. I’m sure in a couple of months he’ll be right back in the faculty lounge, drinking coffee with Dinkle.

    Does Bull not eat at Montoni’s? Why have none of these people asked him how he feels?

  3. When I clicked on the link, the strip says “CTE.” Looks like somebody caught the error, but much later than they should have.

    Panel 2 makes it look like these four are carved into a mountain. Mount RushLes, perhaps?

    Bull has gone all the way from “just diagnosed” to “day-to-day” already, which given Linda’s usual boundless pessimism isn’t too surprising. And, of course, the Bull retirement ceremony arc features Les and Funky talking about Bull instead of Bull, even though he’s been a regular character for forty-whatever years now. Anyhow, everything’s still a big joke to Dick Facey and an especially annoying Funky who doesn’t appear to even want to be there at all. When Lisa suffers a slow agonizing decline due to an incurable disease it’s the most serious thing ever but when it’s anyone else it’s all cynical one-liners and snotty jokes…what a dick.

    @HeyItsDave,

    “Congratulations to Holly and her Pokemon Go adventure. You can see by the picture she’s caught (left to right) a Jynx, a Weedle, and a Snorlax.”

    But the true Westview exclusive (because no one else wants it) is the smirker.

    Playing Pokémon? Nah, I would bet Holly is doing one of the following:

    Posting a stupid motivational meme on facebook
    Body shaming Cindy on her instagram page
    Posting a comment on Breitbart

  8. It’s funny because Linda has lived with a violently abusive husband for so long she can’t tell the difference.

  9. Batiuk is just lampshading the reality that Bull with CTE will be 99.994% similar to Bull before his diagnosis, and that from now on his CTE will only be mentioned when it is convenient to the plot…

    Meanwhile the City of Cleveland is having the biggest year in sports in Batiuk’s lifetime, and he still hasn’t even squeezed in a acknowledgement…

  10. $$$WESTVIEW ONCOLOGIST$$$

    Is Les Moore like a medieval village messenger or something?Why is he the friggin repository for info on the lives of everyone in Westview?? It must be, because it seems Linda only reveals info about her husband to Les Moore and NOBODY else!!!!

    Check back in a year 🙂

    I’m surprised Batiuk didn’t mix up CTE with CME, as in Cable Movie Entertainment, the studio that’s bringing us the Starbuck Jones epic (and the ill-fated Lust for Lisa)

    Body shaming Cindy on her instagram page

    Body shaming would not be a new thing for Holly, by the way…

  13. Tom Batiuk, who still thinks people with infirmities are funny. He’ll be great in the Trump Administration.

  14. Rusty Shackleford

    Wow, Holly used to look like Cindy.

  15. @billytheskink: Yeah, I’ve always maintained that Cindy is just as evil as any of the other assholes in the legacy cast…
