What, Indigestion???

Link To Today’s Strip

What has he been getting a lot of lately? Compliments on behalf of his dead wife from people who barely knew her? Uh yeah…that’s real normal. Why is Boy Lisa suddenly consumed by things Lisa might have approved or been proud of? And at what point will his actual still-living wife and son receive that same degree of devotion?

Worst of all is how they’ve apparently formed some sort of deep bond over Lisa, exchanging playful sneers and wry banter like they’re old pals or something. It’s a development almost as vile and disturbing as Boy Lisa’s bizarre “mom” fixation is and maybe even worse if it’s going to continue to prompt more artwork like today’s. That stretch is bad enough but that smirk/sneer (“smeer”) in panel two is the most enraging drawing of the year bar none.

    I’m truly amazed that TB hasn’t dislocated both shoulders patting himself on the back years ago.

    Looks like a smirk war has broken out between Les and Durwood. Casualties thus far include humor, taste, entertainment, and faith in the human race.

    So basically, Duuuhhhren exists only to tell people what his REAL bio-mom, Dead Saint Lisa the Bland, would think of them. Kind of pointless, though, because she seems to be okay with just about everything. Big whoop. Can’t he tell SOMEBODY that DSLB would hate them or disapprove of them? I mean, just to break it up a little?

    “Pete, my bio-mom, Lisa, would NOT approve of you dating that blonde hussy you met at the Starbucks Jones premier. She’s only after your vast wealth and fame. You belong to ME, and we’re going to get enGAYged as soon as I ditch Jessica and my kid, whose name I can’t quite recall at the moment.”

    “Mom would’ve been proud of you writing a book about her dying and laughing it up with other men with dead wives.”

    I still don’t get that last panel at all. And maybe he wouldn’t have to deal with so many people telling him all about how proud she would have been of him if he wasn’t talking about her, writing about her and hanging around with her bio kids all the damn time.

    “How the fuck would you know what she would have thought, kid? You talked to her once for fifteen minutes over twenty years ago.”

  7. I guess that if we were to tell him “Anne Fairgood’s your mom, you ungrateful dumbass!”, Bathack would weep in horrified rage about how we’re disrespecting the special bond of son too stupid to know love when he saw it and biological mother who more or less lived in fear of the day her child arrived on her doorstep looking for answers.

      You mean the Blessed St. Lisa, who had zero interest in finding her first-born child until she had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel?

    Darin’s face seems to be subject to constant change. In the bottom left panel he appears to be morphing into Tank McNamara. Or will we find out that Jay Leno is actually his bio-dad?

    Nothing but gloom and doom from Batty with his two strips.

    At least Dustin had a nice Christmas moment today.

    A few guys just shooting the shit and bonding over the dead women in their lives…on Xmas Eve. At a book signing. For “Lisa’s Story”. Even our best snarkers, working as a team all through the night, wouldn’t have dreamed up anything that weird. It had a whole early Act III vibe to it that I haven’t seen in a while, that obnoxious combination of shameless self-promotion and maudlin sappy “Lisa’s Story” wallowing. Throwing Boy Lisa in there just makes it worse, too.
