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 love that Ted really shows some admiration here, as much as I loved playing his romantic view of the world contrasted with Vachel’s way of expressing his immediate desires.
This was the first of the vacations, and what I felt was a very fun tradition. I used to keep stacks of National Geographics around and page through, pondering where they’d go next. But this article on the tepuis of Venezuela was truly breathtaking, and it was fun to put it in the strip.
This strip cracks me up, especially the loops flying through the air in panel #3.
It makes me smile that my mom thought so too and purchased this one the moment she saw it. :)
I had put some thought into where he may have parked the plane after their original flight, but fortunately I stopped thinking and left it exactly where he had landed it.
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.
