Sunday, June 10

We’ll have to wait until midnight EDT to learn if today’s strip is another Dinkle knee slapper (unlikely) or maybe that “Scuba Cop” sideways comic book cover he’s flogging over at the blog. Epicus takes over the reins tomorrow just in time to rescue my sanity!

    “The warm winter”…the frying pan-sized snowflakes start falling in Westview on November 1 and don’t stop until Easter, so some clarification may be needed re: “warm”. But at least it didn’t involve Les, Dinkle or comic books so I’m giving this one my highest Sunday FW grade of 2018 thus far…1%.

    Kome on Kids! Kill Mark Twain/Hal Holbrook/Joe Shlabotnik!!!!

  3. You would think that someone so obsessed with high school would know how it works but then again, he’s obsessed with comics and he doesn’t know how they work either. Just as he’s outraged that the Mighty Marvel Bullpen was actually Stan Lee putting a brave face on a store-front operation (because he’s too stupid to understand why that could be), he doesn’t know how the school year is actually structured.

    Yay, we get to revisit Bernie Silverberg, Batty’s short, pudgy, glasses-wearing, nerdy Jewish stereotype. Bernie is 12 years old, just like Cindy is 19, Les is 45, Holly is 60, Beardo McMailman is 70, and Flunky is 80. Getting apparent ages right is not a skill mastered by Batty OR his staff of substitute “artists.”

    Just as Owen the Idiot (Where is he now? Do we really give a shit?) put on his wool hat and never took it off, young Silverstein wears his two-toned “baseball undershirt” wherever he goes. It’s his “look,” and Batty’s sticking with it.

    I was also immediately puzzled by the “warm winter” bullcrap. Didn’t it snow every day for several months? Even Lynnuck Johnston, Batty’s Canadian idol, was saying, “God DAMN! It snows a lot in Ohio!” Maybe Ohio is one of those places where they don’t cancel school unless the snow is rooftop high.

      You think the teachers are going to give up their additional paid vacation days? They budget for snow days and ensure they use most of them. Come March, they are cancelling school at the sign of a single snowflake.

      The fact that at Westview High, they screw off at the end of the year goes a long way towards explaining why everyone ends up with a career at Montonis or the Komix Krapper.

        Meanwhile, in Leslie the Lord of Language’s classroom, the kids are still waiting.

        “If he doesn’t show up by Wednesday, we should just call off this class for the semester.”

          Yeah, he sure has a sweet gig. He travels around peddling books and still gets a check for doing absolutely nothing…reminds me of someone else.

  5. I’ll be the beady-eyed nitpicker and point out that the countdown before a broadcast begins is always done in reverse, ie, “Three…two…one.”

      Do schools have video announcements now? I would assume so, but do they use bulky old TV cameras? Unlike Batty, I havent been in a school since I graduated.

      And beside that, remember that in Batty’s pointy little bald head, if you SAY a number, you have to hold up that many fingers.
