Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads

Today’s strip gives us a good indication of why Bernie has been a freshman for two years, he apparently plays hooky when the slightest blemish appears on his face.

Bernie might not be learning much of the three Rs in high school, but he’s getting Westview’s trademark tone-deafness down pat. Griping about your “bad forehead day” in front of a 15-year-old cursed with Peyton Manning’s forehead and a 15-year-old cursed with Ron Howard’s hairline while wearing bangs that cover 95% of your own forehead… that is cold-blooded, Bernie. Les would be proud if he didn’t despise you and every other student who walks the halls of Westview High.

    Zit jokes? Oh man, that’s just pathetic. If you’re just going to create another “new generation” of WHS students then just use them as fodder to clean out the ol’ Act I junk drawer, why even bother? IMO it’s somewhat disconcerting to see these “teen life” strips at this stage of FW’s…uh…”development”, I guess. Cafeteria food, pimples…what’s next, a strip about forgetting your locker combination?

    Guess another school levy failed, seeing as everyone is eating lunch at a card table.

    Would Bernie coming to school looking like a Klingon have really been all that out of place? I mean, there’s a Vulcan in the foreground of panel 2, and Bernie’s balding pal could pass for Balok with minimal effort.

    Hey Batiuk, guess what? If you’re so determined to do lame high school humor, just have one panel of Les asking Cayla, “Do you remember when I was in high school and . . .”. And then reprint your old strips with the stupid photo album corners. Nobody will notice, it can’t be any worse than this, and you won’t have to do any work, so you’ll be able to focus on your Flash and imaginary comic book company blogging.

    Crap! I still having trouble posting illos! Sorry. Let me try again.

  6. Now, let’s see here……high school was around the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis for him, wasn’t it? Isn’t that kind of a looooong time for him to be pissed off because he wasn’t Big Man On Campus?

    Bernie wears his hair kind of shaggy to better cover up the strange lighting bolt shaped scar that tends to ache whenever Les Moore is close by.


    Judging by panel 2, they’ve allowed Piltdown Man to attend school.

  9. Look at the legless guy, panel two upper right. Interesting watching him float off into that aqua-colored void.

    I’m surprised his pants legs aren’t pinned up.
