Aw, hell…

it was just Cindy after all.

So it took two days for Bathack to segue from Westview to California, and this insipid, saccharine exchange in service to Cindyt’s vanity is no doubt T-Bat’s way of kicking off yet another Starsuck Jones arc.

“Promise me you’ll never get old!”

“Only if you promise the same!”

“I CAN NOT AGE, FOR I AM THE GATEKEEPER FOR THE MIGHTY GOZER! BRING FORWARD ANOTHER CHILD THAT I MAY SLAKE MY BURNING THIRST FOR THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT”

Watch your back, Skyler.

Don’t forget to check in again tomorrow for more delicious Funky Winkerbean snark brought to you by beckoningchasm!

  1. Why the devil would “Cynthia” give a fat fig about Bull. Did they date? I don’t think so.

    Well, at least I got a good laugh out of today’s strip–an unintentional one, though, since “Cynthia” seems not to have aged since her first appearance in the strip.

    “Old like Bull, who was in the same high school class as me, and so is basically the same age as me.”

    Wow, what an awful awkward segue, even by Batiukian standards. What do Cindy and Mason have to do with anything? Are they EVER going to finish filming that damned movie? And if that really was Bull’s “swansong” arc man, how feeble was that?

    What a weird request for Cindy to make. She’s somewhere between ten and twenty years older than he is, assuming that the reunion last year was her class’s 35th, making the main characters about 52 years old.

  5. More puerile maundering about how cruel and selfish Cindy is for not letting Funky ‘win’ and ‘be a man’ and also ‘refusing to age gracefully’. We’re probably looking at the mental processes of one of Clinton’s deplorables here: a shlumpy idiot who blames everyone but himself and his values for the mess he blundered into.

    Boy, Batiuk really doesn’t have any idea what actors do, does he? He apparently thinks they work one day a month for a couple hours and then spend the rest of their time loafing around on their private beach. And for all this you have virtually limitless resources to provide for any whim.

    Did you know that Jennifer Lawrence has worked on NINE films since Mason walked away from Lisa’s Story to star in Starbuck Jones? And he’s still just studying the script while he lays around listening to his girlfriend spout out inanities.

  7. And what better way to end the arc than poking fun at Cindy’s crippling fear of growing older, fueled by an industry and society that has told her that her only value is her physical appearance?

    Aww, this is the cutest suicide pact ever!

  9. Mason’s new movie is apparently called “Script,” judging by the title visible in panel 5.

    “WTF are you talking about, lady? You’re the one that is 15-20 years older than I am! And since I’m a Hollywood actor I’ll still be pulling dime pieces hotter than you when I’m 78 years old. So it is *YOU* and your insecure, time-defying ass that had better not get old! We understand each other?”

    Has there ever been a strip full of so many loathsome characters?
