As usual, Sunday’s strip is not available for preview and I’ve got too much to do tomorrow to wait up for it.
I’m of two minds–on the one hand, it sure seems like we were building up to something starring Cliff Anger…but we haven’t really built anything enough. I mean, one mention of “Butter Brickle” hardly constitutes a leaping-off point for a Cliff Anger comic book tribute cover, but then this is Funky Winkerbean so absolutely anything is possible, as long as it isn’t even slightly interesting.
The second, and I think more likely possibility is that we’ll have something unrelated to the previous week. For example, it’s been a while since Funky and Les have gone running, and the fact that Les is in California shouldn’t be a barricade to this strip. Or we might get wacky Bernie Silver Chess Club antics, with all the wackiness scientifically removed. Who knows?
Ah well. We’ll all find out together, and our yawning will be such that it will wake the land!
