    Finally, a FW strip that generates a genuine hearty laugh. “Little Italy”…”Big Italy”…simple yet obvious comedy you don’t have to think about too much. Nothing beats simplistic wordplay for sheer belly laughs. I’m just amazed it’s taken someone this long to use that gag, if it takes another forty-four years for someone else to use it again it’ll be time well spent.

  2. Harry Dinkle is like a diarrhea stain on a white marching band uniform. You can scrub til your arms are sore, but you’ll never be rid of it.

  3. Since going overseas for any extended length of time would deny him an opportunity to barge in on Becky and treat her like his assistant, he has no choice but to balk at the idea.

    Stay tuned next week for airport hijinks when Dinkle sees a TSA agent groping a young boy and says, “Let me show you how it’s done.”

    Somebody must have had a trip to Italy last summer that we are finally getting around to documenting. Get ready for some tortured attempts at Italian words that sound like English puns.

    Well, you beady eyed nitpickers, if you think Motor Vehicles employees are amused by smirking, punning, uncooperative “customers,” wait until Dinkleberry meets up with the TSA. I’m sure they love a good joke, as far as BatWit knows.

    Balderdash! Dinkle has never dreamed about anything that was not self-glorifying and band-related.

    He and Harriet did, in fact, make it to Cleveland’s Little Italy back in 2009. Was it because of his affinity for “Big” Italy? Of course not, it was because he had finished his second opera, Rigatoni. (oy…)

  8. I guess we are getting a new artist. The face in the header certainly isn’t the work of Tom Batiuk.

    That face is Act II Hot Topic-shopper Chien, from the Act III model sheets that appeared on the Funky Winkerbean website until a couple years ago.

    I believe John Byrne drew all of those model sheets. They certainly match his work from when he drew the strip for a couple months back in 2003: low noses, wide and flat mouths, small bead eyes.

  10. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for
    something concerning this.
