This is from 20 years ago, but I imagine the joke — which I don’t get — would be the same if the song were updated to “Belle” from “Beauty and the Beast.”

An old reference, but we can’t use the Geezer tag because under-30’s are the most likely to get it.

This pleased me because, in case I was too subtle about it, I hate the Berenstain Bears passionately.

Okay, let’s not get into politics here, but… are we supposed to interpret this as her killing him (what with his eyes being x’ed out, and all)?

Yes, he’ll be alive again tomorrow no matter what, but this isn’t a strip that deals in that sort of surrealism.

We seem to have our consensus, so I’m shutting down comments.
