Today’s strip was not available preview, so it is time to dive into the archives to find answers to the questions that YOU, the loyal and hearty SOSF readers, want to know!
Today’s question comes from B.D. Idenitpicker from Picher, Oklahoma.
When did Pete get those bags under his eyes? Was he born with them?
The answer, obviously, is yes. Pete’s eye bags were visible on ultrasound. But, I know you all are here for archival evidence, so lets see some, shall we?
Here’s Pete’s first appearance in the fall of 1998 and… what? No bags? Or are Pete’s eye bags all we see here around his nose, not his eyes themselves? I subscribe to the latter theory.
Pete’s bags are on clear display in this strip, where much-missed Act II arsonist Mooch Myers takes Durwood’s property with no intention of returning it. I would like to see more of this, actually.
Pete’s bags grew considerably here in this strip, where he creepily pines for his best friend’s future wife.
And they grow further still when talking about his parent’s divorce, because Act II was all about EVERYONE having a personal raincloud.
There you have it, sports fans. Pete has never gotten enough sleep, or learned about antihistamines. Until next time, keep sending in those post cards!
