Ho hum. Look at the expression on Mason’s face in panel one. Boy, those are some real sincere congratulations. He’s probably thinking, “Fine, can we talk about me now? Like, how awesome I am and stuff.”
And what is that thing under Cindy’s hand? Part of her bracelet, or a car key? Are they planning a dine ‘n’ dash? Because that would be exciting…but I think I might be able to handle that! Please go ahead and do it!
Unless you’re a long-time reader of this strip–and I hate to tell you this, Mr. Batiuk, but we’re it–you’ll have no idea who “Vera” is. Last time she was seen in the strip was some months ago, and I wonder if she was even referred to by name then. Cliff Anger was mentioned once earlier in the week, but given his idiotic name, one might have thought Cindy’s documentary was on the “[psychological condition known as] Cliff Anger [in which people who read a certain comic strip throw themselves off high mountains].”
It would have been funnier.
(Corrected for spelling…hey if Tom Batiuk can do it, so can I)
