Comic Book Harriet asked a relevant question yesterday–is this vendo in the school, or the Komix Korner? We were, after all, dealing with two characters shown in the Korner in the previous day’s strip.
Well, today’s professionally taped sign gives us the answer. Although Bernie’s still wearing the same shirt as yesterday–does that mean he only has one shirt? Shades of Les Moore! (Spoilers: he seems to have two, this one and another just like it in red. I guess he alternates them seasonally.)
Other than that, it’s just another sad episode of how badly Tom Batiuk’s sense of humor has atrophied. School food, that’s always timely–but, I should shake it up somehow. He’s obviously trying, he’s even abandoned the safe, tried-and-true cafeteria in an attempt to recast the joke–but it’s the same old cafeteria fare, just drenched in a different bland sauce.
Neither one is edible.
