Look, I made a pun! Based on “kemosabe” and “chemotherapy”! Do I get an award yet?! I should go out and stand by the mailbox!
Of course, I have the feeling that Batiuk has used that exact same pun, previously on this long hard slog, so I’m a bit deflated by that.
Speaking of deflated, how completely baffling is it that Lisa is brought up in today’s strip. It makes it look as if everyone in the entire world was affected by her passing, and everyone must pause and mourn when something brings her to mind. “Hey, look at this painting, the Mona Lisa!” (sigh) “I guess I should sign the lease, uh?” (moan) “Okay, I found one, where’s the other shoe?” (sob).
Because otherwise it just seems like more whoring out of Tom Batiuk’s Greatest Hit, in the hopes that someone, somewhere–anywhere–might say, “Hey, I’ve got an award I’ve got to give out–and it looks like I’ve found someone deserving!”
Batiuk, let her rest. You fumbled it, and the play’s been called.
