Major Tissues

So today we finally find out the source of Mason’s problems and it’s Cindy!

Dames, huh? What, with their crazy vacuum cleaners, brooms, mops and other contraptions! According to today’s strip, Cindy just might clean Mason right out of a career. I wonder how appealing Mr. Hollywood would be without his impossible-to-discern sports controvertible and his guaranteed access to Comic-Con.

  1. So, removing all the allergens gives him an allergy. Got it.

    Sorry, I’m allergic to obliviously stupid comic strip writing. Wait, no I’m not. I’ve built up an immunity by reading Funky Winkerbean daily…

    So he was a slob, which gave him immunity to allergens, then Cindy moved in a few years ago, he cleaned the place, now he’s sick. Ummm, OK BatNom, whatever you say. I’m beginning to wonder if last year’s “Bull has brain damage” arc might be semi-autobiographical.

    Cindy sucked the life out of this strip.

  5. Oh for fucks sake, TB. I can only hope that this is a red herring or Masone simply being a dimwit. Go here: You REMOVE allergens and then avoid them (like getting rid of pets). Later, if you enter a scenario where they are present (say, at a house with pets) your symptoms may return. Living in a clean environment PREVENTS symptoms. As someone who took allergy shots from age 8 until about 37 (I moved to Arizona, which compared to my home state, had far fewer allergy-sparking sources), I have some passing knowledge of all this. Meanwhile, if this was all a setup just to have a play on words joke about losing ones virginity, then it’s yet more evidence of The Author’s obsession with shoehorning shit that he overheard into a strip no matter the awkwardness.

    Likely story. He’s fer shur caught the AIDS.

    Add allergies and immunology to the apparently endless list of things TB doesn’t understand.

    The most unbelievable part of this is that the aliens are actually being played by actors in rubber suits. Not digitally generated using Andy Serkis Motion Capture technology.

    I guarantee this “arc” was born when Batiuk’s wife tried to clean out his garage studio.

    1. Why is he telling everyone his private business?


    3. I suffer from both mental illness and severe allergies and Batiuk has made an unfunny mockery of both issues… Maybe he can go for the trifecta and tackle racism next??

  11. Rusty Shackleford


    He already tackled racism with that bit of wordplay between Les and his wife.


    I’m with everyone on this being a not so subtle plot of Masone Jarr having AIDS. Though this brings up the interesting idea of who ultimately passed it on to him. My money is on Mopey Pete. It would explain why Pete is so tired looking all the time.

  14. Batiuk: “I feel I should say something about some of the things being said about yesterday’s Funky Sunday…”

  15. There is actually some research that suggests growing up in an environment devoid of common allergens will lead to auto-immune diseases is adulthood (and, indeed, some people with serious allergies have been successfully treated with hookworms), BUT it doesn’t work anything like what Masoné Jarré describes here. Once again, we see TomBat over-hearing an idea on the Akron bus (or whatever) and rather than going to the library or the internet or something, doing what Jon Stewart described as “research, into the topics of: the human anus, and pulling things out of it.”
