Like A Ring-Tailed Lemur On A Swedish Meatball

Link To Today’s Thing

OK, now this mess is reading like a really shitty G-rated “Married With Children” knock-off type thing, the only thing missing is canned laughter and audience hooting. After a week of zany gags about children’s behinds, hot sex, Skyler’s aberrant attention-seeking behavior and potty jokes, it’s time for some sitcom-style gender role reversal. Boy Lisa expresses his feelings and his desire to “just talk” to his BFF Pete while the gals get together to exchange crude sexually suggestive similes involving primates and food. See, it’s funny because MEN are typically the over-sexed slobs and…ah, you know. At least Jessica finally got to bond with someone, although unfortunately for little baby Skyler it wasn’t him.

Check out that last word balloon and note the big empty space between “a” and “monkey”. My “inside sources” tell me it was edited. The original dialog was “…on me like Les Moore turning a tragedy into a masterpiece…”Lisa’s Trilogy”, available wherever books are sold!” but Comics Kingdom thought it was a little too blatant, so they went with his second choice, “monkey on a cupcake” instead. “Funky on a cupcake” would have been funnier.

    Mopey Pete is grabbing Boy Lisa’s nuts with his hidden left hand.

    The space is there because Batiuk originally had the phrase “Cayla on a cupcake”, but changed it roughly a year ago when beady-eyed nitpickers for some reason didn’t like him referring to her as a macaque.

  3. I know that, now that the awards fever has shambled shamefacedly away from this strip, Batiuk really wants to concoct a phrase that will put him among the immortals. (He has to have SOME reason to wave attention to himself.)

    He thought he had it with “You did what superheroes did, you saved me,” but no one picked that up. I suspect no one knew it was there, actually.

    And now, it’s cupcakes and monkeys. Wow, Batiuk, that Pulitzer nomination scarred you way more than any comic-book-tossing mother ever has.

    This is gross, and not even in the fun kind of way. I’m a prude and even I know that smut is primarily appealing when it’s fun.

    This is why there’s a meme of Luke yelling “DO NOT WANT!!!!”

    “And now, it’s cupcakes and monkeys.”

    Plows and Devil’s strips………………………

  7. I was so ready to add this one to the Batiuktionary…turns out it’s a line from the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond:

    It’s not original, it’s not really funny, and it’s pointless. Par for the course for this strip’s recent offerings.

    So TB has actually watched another sitcom besides Seinfeld?
