This is the kind of line I used to use as a kid, say part of a sentence, knowing that the listener would fill in the rest incorrectly. I was a wicked child when it came to dueling words, but fairly mild in nature.
This reminds me of The Cowboy Wally Show, “oh yeah, lock the gate!”
And seriously, aside from this being a joke, I do find it easy to get caught up in things when it’s just as easy to move on. As I often say, life just isn’t that hard.
Well, unless it is.
I always found this strip interesting, because although there’s only one spoken word in the whole thing “AAAAHH!” (not counting Blake’s sleep mumblings), the strip really takes a lot of time to fully read, because each activity and expression plays a role in the strip.
I have VERY few pet peeves (I’m rather easy-going). But ONE of them is people driving who have scraped barely a large-pizza sized hole through the ice to their windshield. I don’t like it when I’m in their car, because I feel endangered, and I don’t like it when I’m not in their car, because I feel endangered.
That said, I did it once or twice when i was young. I get it. And I also feel lucky to have learned before anyone was hurt.
I am always amazed at how much little tragedies plague people. But I also get it, some days when I’m at wit’s end, they plague me too. But even when it’s plaguing me, I still find it funny.
When researching writing this week, I was wondering how to remember which were stalagmites and stalactites. I found this (or was told it, I don’t recall), and it was my favorite way to remember.
I am very pleased with Vachel and Dee in the two silent panels.
