Link to today’s strip.

Okay, today’s thing is actually kind of funny, in a “Family Circus” kind of way…by which, it isn’t actually funny but you can at least see that a joke was intended.

And who among us here has not said the dialogue in panel one, after reading Funky Winkerbean or Crankshaft?

    That first panel really had me thinking we were about to get the heartwarming tale of Skyler, Who Killed His Grandma Because He Played Too Much.

    We’re supposed to laugh because Skyler isn’t quarantined?

    Oh, shit. He’s finally going to jump into the vaccination debate with both feet, ain’t he?

    @Paul Jones: Oh gosh, I hope not, but it looks like that’s what we might be in for! Preparing my facial muscles for Ultra Cringe…

    This is the most parenting Skyler has been seen getting his entire life.

      This is probably the point. Batiuk plopped Messica there for a reason: to blubber stupidly about how bad a person she is for not dropping everything to cater to her smug parasite son and his non-stop entitlement. The milk and cookies and funny books ain’ta gonna get themselves, you know! That’s what mothers are for…….if you’re a pathetic infant like our Tommy.

    I generally say it at least once per three-panel daily strip.

    And this is part of the Butter Binkle storyline how?
    And may I add that Skyler has grown up quite a bit since we last saw him yes? And that this can’t possibly be the first time this kid has gotten sick.

  9. What’s with the weird sheen on Ann’s leg in panel 2? Is she wearing Spandex?
