but I really enjoy it when Mrs. Olsen kicks him in the ass.

    It’s always fun when someone gets one over on a smartarse.

    Even when I’m the one being a smartarse.

    I don’t think she did win. Frazz joked about doing things at a
    modern, fast pace. It was a joke based on her wanting things
    slower. She actually ordered it at an even faster, more modern
    pace, which contradicted her own wishes.

    She knows what parts of modern life are worth the speeding up.

    Frazz has not been hitting on all four cylinders lately. Personally, I felt that the specific reference to “Amazon” was a serious defect in this strip.

    I’m with Bill on Frazz getting smacked occasionally. It’s ironic that Bradbury would have been horrified by Mrs. Olsen’s downloading of his book. I seem to recall that he resisted electronic versions of his work for a really long time. It might even be that e-versions only came out after his death.

    @ Kamino Neko (1) yes! Nothing makes me laugh harder than when someone is able to get me with a zinger! I’m the quick-witted, sarcastic jokester so I thoroughly respect it when someone can nail my azz! Even if I have a comeback, I’d rather bow my head and give them a touché!

    Actually, my OAC (grade 13) English thesis was on this… nostalgia in Ray Bradbury’s works.

    @Arthur (2): There isn’t a contradiction here. There’s nothing wrong missing the past while living in the present… nostalgia only becomes a problem when you start thinking that you really can “go home again”. You can’t recreate that time now. And even if you had a time machine and went back there it wouldn’t work… because you’ve also changed. This is how the “suck fairy” gets into your favourite books from years ago and ruins them when you revisit them now.
