Philadelphia Cream Cheese Took Me Knee High To A Man

Link To Today’s Strip

Like Alzheimer’s, CTE is a brain disorder, thus it holds nearly limitless comedic potential. Forgetting stuff, unpredictable mood swings, high-risk behavior, the massive all-encompassing burden it places upon family and loved ones…you know, just good old-fashioned funny page wackiness. Like in today’s strip, where we see Linda and Bull’s doctor sharing a chortle over Bull the imbecile putting the Philadelphia Cream Cheese (way to fill a word balloon by being unnecessarily descriptive there, BatNom) in the (guffaw) bathroom soap drawer. Just wait until he puts the bleach and the ammonia in one container to save space, that’ll be a hoot. And just wait until he’s unable to feed or care for himself anymore, it’ll be laughs-a-plenty then.

    I’ve got to imagine Philadelphia Cream Cheese absolutely would not want to be associated with this.

      I’m guessing Arla Cream Cheese saw their opportunity and paid Battywack handsomely to smear the competition.

        Actually,Cindy has been using cream cheese as a facial mask for years. It keeps her cheesecake fresh.

    If I was Dr. Henry Kissinger here, I would be more concerned that they have an entire drawer dedicated to storing soap, to be honest.

  3. Nice Elton John reference. I got the rhythm right away.

      He isn’t making it easy this week, I’ll tell ya that. Note the word balloon hi-jinx too. Lots of empty wasted space there, which is undoubtedly why he chose “Philadelphia Cream Cheese” and not “banana” or something.

    That Bull! Even funnier was when he ate the bar of soap.

    Oh the fun and hijinks, I cannot wait!

    Watch Ed Crankshaft from Crankshaft show up and tell them to stop stealing his “brain-damaged old codgers are funny” material.

    Weird phrasing strikes again. Wouln’t a doctor be more likely to say “We want to know about unusual behavior Bull has demonstrated”? Getting that kind of information aids diagnosis, which doctors say is more of an art than strictly a science. “Obliged” sounds more like what a lawyer would say because it implies that they have to ask about it whether they want to know or not.

    In fact, the entire statement by the doctor in panel 1 reads like a disclaimer.

    So… we are apparently in for a few days of witty banter at the expense of Bull’s mental state.

  9. Hey, here’s a wacky idea! Bull could move in with Fred! That way they can both be brain-damaged old coots, and Annie would have double the work load!! Why, the jokes practically write themselves!!!

  10. So, I guess the joke requires that it’s “Philadelphia Cream Cheese” since “Philadelphia Cream Cheese” is famously packaged as a brick that when unwrapped could resemble a large bar of soap. Stay tuned tomorrow when Linda recounts Bull’s attempt to spread Ivory Soap on his bagel.

    Am I the only one mystified by the notion of a soap DRAWER?! I’ve heard of soap dishes and soap racks, but never soap drawers. What’s next- toothpaste barrels?!

    • Good point. The only thing that “grandpa google” says about soap drawers relates to the thing in your washer where you pour your soap before you do a load of laundry, so cream cheese wouldn’t fit in there even if you tried. I’m guessing that TB meant to say “soap tray” or “soap dish” and somehow it came out as “soap drawer”
