One Nation Under A Groove

Les finally remembers his creepy Centerville contemporary in today’s strip, something he lied about just two strips ago.

While this comic would like you to believe that Les’ memory was jogged by this girl’s foolish belief that she was going to meet George Clinton and Co. on a school-arranged trip to Washington DC, let’s be honest here. Les really remembers her because she looked like a proto-Lisa back then.

    “I remember you now! You were that moron from the trip to Washington! I NEVER forget feeling smug deadpan disdain for someone! How’ve you been?”

    Wow, talk about wasting most of the week on setting up an ancient and completely unrelated gag for no reason, eh? I have no idea whether this is an actual Act I strip, but in a way I hope it is as if he went through the trouble of retconning this, things over at Batom Inc. World HQ are even worse than I assumed.

    And Les wonders why females in high school were repulsed by him.

    I’d like to see Les get that close to the White House today. Y’know, so the Secret Service will tackle him.

      Kudos to BTS for the George Clinton reference! As soon as I saw the word “paraliament” in the strip, my mind was serenading me with, “She’s a brick house…”

  4. We’re supposed to feel superior to this woman because she doesn’t really know how government works. The problem is that it’s just one stupid person feeling artificially superior to a fellow jabbering nitwit.

  5. They should change the name of Montoni’s to Dr. Funkenstein’s…

    “because she looked like a proto-Lisa back then”

    The soulmate who cudda been, and here she is now for a second chance.

    Naw, that might make the strip interesting and relevant to the experiences of adults for a few days.

    “Oh, NOW I remember you! You’re the ugly stoooopid GORL who folded her hands in front of herself all the time and smelled like rotting fish. You haven’t changed a bit!”

    “Know what? You can take your stupid old essay and…”


  8. And she also looks ten years older than Les. It’s like he’s the only one (other than his wife) that is allowed to look his age and not be totally homely.

    Man, there are a lot of really stupid people in the Funkyverse.

    And a lot of them like reading Les’s books!

    I know I’m late but I just want to remind folks that this woman and Cindy Sommers-Winkerbeane-Jarre are the same age
