Every Day Is Like Sunday

Link to today’s strip.

The above link goes to the NJ link since, as is traditional, the Sunday strips are too precious to drop on the unwashed.  So you’ll have to wait until midnight to taste Tom Batiuk’s genius.  (Yeah, I know–ewww!  Total doubleyuck!)

I’m guessing we’re going to get more Dinkle, because what better way to spit in the face of your readers than with Harry Dinkle?   I’m not really asking for alternative answers to that question, but feel free in the comments to describe Batiuk’s ultimate expression of disdain.

Les Moore and Darrin Undesirable are equally awful characters, but at least they can be defeated–in the first case, by having to meet his public, in the second by denying certain pens, but Dinkle…how does one defeat Dinkle?  Near as I can remember, in the diminishing brain-space left to me, Dinkle has always been praised and has never suffered a setback.

I think it’s well past time for that lack to be addressed, but I suspect that will never happen.

One more thing to regret too late on this year’s Anti-Thanksgiving’s Black Weekend.

    Thinking a premise is way funnier than it actually is…one of the cornerstones of this comic strip. It was barely enough for one Sunday strip, much less seven days of it. Something about a high school crammed full of mattresses just really hit BanTom right in the ol’ funny bone, plausibility be damned. He’s a weird f*cking dude.

    Coming soon: as the first responders continue combing the smoldering ruins for survivors, the Westview fire chief demands to know who was stupid enough to stuff the high school full of mattresses.

    Who in their right mind would want to buy an unwrapped mattress that’s just been sitting around the hallways of a school? You just know those things are coated in spitballs, gum, and worse things.

    Nate really shouldn’t complain. With Les on his book tour and Bull retired, the band is about the only reason the school even exists anymore.

  4. This cute whimsical idea, spread out and reiterated over seven days. I hope the mattresses are at least as well-padded.

  5. There’s two more overly long gags here: drawing her to look like a ninth-grade boy and that irritating, oh-so-precious pinned up sleeve.

      The sleeve was definitely showcased today. I wonder though if casual readers even notice.

      No story, no humor, crappy art, but Batty can brag that his strip has a handicapped character.

    “Exactly when is this mattress fundraiser going to be over? Because I haven’t gotten my order in yet. I need a new one in the far corner of the boiler room to replace the one me and Cayla wore out and covered with stains. Can you get the 11 year old Jewish kid and the 43 year old Black kid to haul out the old one and put in a new one? I have Hazmat Suits they can wear for the removal. Thanks, Young Lad.”

    Boy, that silent auction they had six years ago to pay for Summer’s basketball team (speaking of which, where is she – her basketball scholarship has expired, and somehow I don’t see Les shelling out for grad school) must have really made a profit – it looks like Westview has a second basketball court! That’s certainly not the one they use for games; the three-point circle is missing.

    “Um, sorry, Princ’pal Nate. The high school was sold to Mattress Firm, and I was hired as sales manager. You have until the end of the day to clear out your office. Smell ya later, chief!”

    Actually there is a way to preview Sunday strips you just have to add X3Rz between the WFu and Ljw. So it would be
    WFuX3RzLjI. Today’s file is aHR0cDovL3NhZnIua2luZ2ZlYXR1cmVzLmNvbS9GdW5reVdpbmtlcmJlYW4vMjAxNy8xMS9GdW5reV9XaW5rZXJiZWFuX3RzLjIwMTcxMTI2Xzc2MC5naWY= I have no idea why they make it more difficult than the rest of the week but I hope this helps.

    Side note I do agree there is no way if this was real it would be run this way.
