With a capital “T” and that rhymes with “P”

Today’s strip will long be remembered as the one where Holly’s mother gives her daughter a wet willy. Also, pools are nice to have or something.

Look, there’s not much to this. I guess I could point out that a trip from Florida to Northern Ohio with three elderly folks would reasonably involve an overnight stay in a motel or some other type of lodging and yet, all three of these characters are wearing the same clothes they have been wearing since the trip began. I could point that out, but I won’t. I don’t want to be a beady-eyed nitpicker.

    Weren’t they just talking about “how things have changed” in Ohio just yesterday? What they do, backtrack or something? This arc is like being beaten with a pillowcase full of failure.

      Yep, yesterday’s strip implied that they were in Ohio. Today’s implies that they’re going to be staying overnight at a motel. Dude’s not even trying with continuity anymore.

      And just as an aside, my mother got a UTI about ten days ago that put her in the hospital with symptoms that are in every way the same as severe dementia. Experiencing that as her primary caregiver has really opened my eyes to just how much of a shithead Batiuk is when he mines that situation for this particular type of humor.

  2. Again, he’s obviously making fun of dementia. Batiuk, you are one weird sonof******.

      You’d think someonr who forgets his own characters’ names and has lost whatever ability he had to tell stories would be more sensitive.

        It’s either dementia or Batiuk thinks that riding with the elderly is directly analogous to riding with a six year old. It’s all pool priorities, potty breaks, snack demands, and whining.

    All heads turned except for Holly’s… for she had no neck.

    This doesn’t rise to the level of “mailing it in”.

      Especially funny because a heated pool usually indicates an outdoor pool. Every freeway passerby would get a great view of granny’s backside.

      “I sure didn’t when swimming in Dinkle’s band candy pool, if you know what I mean.”

  5. Not only do we have this asshole mining dementia like the heartless clod he is, we’re getting a good whiff off of the landfill that is his mommy issues.

  6. Funky hasn’t had a line since Sunday. Not that he’s complaining, mind, because I’m sure if he did, it would make him look stupid.

    The silent characters are the best ones.

    Okay, I can’t snark on the old lady anymore because it’s evident to me that she has an advanced form of Alzheimer’s…

    I find Tom Batuick’s weeklong mockery of this elderly woman to be completely repugnant.

  9. I have developed mine over the years and went to a good result.
    Get your hands dirty with a paint program and research the color scheme.
    Just try one method and stick to it there are time. http://clerk.seattle.gov/~scripts/nph-brs.exe?S1=calhoun&S2=&S3=&l=20&Sect7=THUMBON&Sect6=HITOFF&Sect5=PHOT1&Sect4=AND&Sect3=PLURON&d=PHO2&p=1&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwin88.today%2Flpe88%2F&r=2&f=G
