Breaking Fat

Link To Today’s Strip

First of all, let’s all take a moment to salute everyone on the SoSF staff, especially those who endured that SEVEN WEEK Wally fiasco. May we never speak of or have to type “Adeela” again.

Yep, we all needed a break after THAT debacle. Normally a “Funky goes to the gym” arc would have me reaching for the cyanide gun but right now it’s like the first really nice day of spring, all full of hope and invigorating. That will wear off by tomorrow, mind you, but still. This is FW and you take your pleasures where you find them. So the eternally fat Funky is at the gym with Fitness Girl, complaining about something and etc. No tornado sirens, no PTSD, no stilted dialog…by God it’s almost downright PLEASANT. It’s all relative, as they say. Sure, it’s ridiculous how he keeps working with a trainer he hates and how he never loses any weight but who cares, anything is a welcome change after seven weeks of Wally’s nonsense.

    I wonder if she still lets him awkwardly touch her for too long.

    Well, this is the worst Kit Kat ad ever.

    Funky’s beginning to look like FAT CRANKSHAFT! “Twice the weight, 1/3rd less inappropriate anger!”

    Comparing “Funky is fat and lazy” to the mess we’ve been subjected to IS like comparing getting a splinter to being harpooned at that.

    The draughtmanship is so bad, it’s getting to the point where I can’t tell Funky, Bull, and Mort apart.

  6. Normally, “Funky goes to the gym” arcs are okay, a chance to clear the air after a “heavy” (read: gas-filled) storyline. But this just reminds me of how much Baituk hates his title character. It’s the one thing that consistently comes through whenever Funky’s on screen.

    And yeah, the artwork just keeps getting worse and worse.

    I decided to challenge myself and find something nice to say about the artwork today. (Find something nice to say about the wordplay? Ahahahahah…)

    Anyway, the towel in panel three is acceptably drawn. That is all.

    I just read some nonsense about the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special being racist because Franklin was placed alone on one side of the table.

    Two seconds of research led to this article from NPR on the origins of Franklin. Note that Schulz says he wanted to be careful to not be patronizing to black people. Contrast that with Batty patronizing everything and anything which he thinks will win him an award.
