Sorry I’m late, folks! One of our clients had a server crash, and–and you probably won’t believe this–I forgot all about Funky Winkerbean! I know, right?
Anyway, those of you who had your bets on the “Bull Gets A Heart Attack” slot, please report to the cashier to collect your winnings.
…however. Those of you who bet on “Nothing Will Change,” I’d advise you to hold on your ticket stubs. The only seriously incapacitated person in the strip was Fred Fairgood, and he rarely appears now. I think Tom Batiuk enjoys torturing Bull too much to just fade him into Bedside Manors.
Besides, remember Dinkle. (Ugh.) First he was deaf, and now he isn’t. Admittedly, Batiuk loves Dinkle….
I guess we’ll all wait and see.
Good Things Watch: this episode was actually pretty well told. I assume that next week, or whenever, we’ll get the walls of unnecessary text, but for now, a really good example of “show, don’t tell.”
