Spot Six Differences!

Wow! Bob Weber of Slylock Fox would be proud of today’s offering.

At first I thought there was something wrong, and they simply hadn’t updated the strips. Because today is a reprint of yesterday’s strip. But upon further inspection there do seem to be tiny, subtle differences between yesterday and today. See if you can find all six!

It took me hours and hours, but I finally found one: The cosmic treadmill that Pete and Darin bought on their second honeymoon is in the background of panel two! How many can you find?

What a fun and interactive game Batiuk has given us. It may not progress the plot, deepen the characters, or be even in the least bit interesting or funny, but at least it fills a Friday shaped hole in our week. One more box checked off as we all coast inevitably to an obscure retirement, and an unlauded death.

So Fun!

  1. Wow, is this terrible, or what? I can’t believe Tom Batiuk is going to completely destroy any goodwill Act I might have generated, just so he can run out on the football field and yell “I MADE IT TO FIFTY! I MADE IT TO FIFTY!”

    Before this story arc I didn’t know it was possible for glaciers to move backwards.

    Chester is gay and wants to date Pete, not knowing that the long closeted Pete now has a girlfriend

    Chester Hagglemore, the wealthy comics collector. Keep reminding us of that, just like John Darling, who was murdered.

    Honestly, Batiuk could just have two random characters reading his local weather forecast every day and it would be better than this crap.

    If I had known it was that easy to figure out what Chester was up to, I would have texted TB about this last week and saved myself the trouble of reading these two whole weeks of teasing.

    It took WEALTHY COMIC BOOK COLLECTOR CHESTER HAGGLEMORE eleven days to send Pete a text message and now Pete and the profoundly enraging Boy Lisa have just spent another full day discussing what to do about it. Thank God Chester didn’t write Pete a letter. This one doesn’t even contain as much as the makings of a joke, as it’s just sub-moronic sitcom-style banter written with killing time in mind and nothing else. What would “the hard way” be, hiring his sleazy bio-dad and his sketchy sidekick to spy on him or something? What an idiot.

  8. Let’s see how many ugly filler strips like this he can put between actually making a point and moving things forward. Pete looks like Old Marvin The Baby because he looks like he contentedly shat himself and Boy Lisa looks as if he should have a bit in his teeth…..

    Gosh even Ed Crankshaft got to the point in two days, although it was the wrong point. That kid, who is not wealthy, said he didn’t want to read, not that he couldn’t read. And what interesting books is he gonna find in an old lady bookstore anyways?

    • It’s not about the kid not wanting to read old lady books. It’s all about “Oh, woe is me! I trusted in the good faith of an asshole who had it in for me but instead of admitting to being a moron, I’ll blame my illiteracy.”

    Big props to Harriet for finding something noteworthy in today’s non-strip.

    I feel like the strip where Bull fumbles Coach Stropp’s ashes on the 1 yard line is the perfect allegory for TB’s career.

    Over in Krankenschaaften, Ed is literally to stupid too fucking breathe, and Batiuk knows Jack Shit about how baseball works…
