Assuming even a modest 25 mpg, a “one gallon radius” will include more than 1962 [corrected figure] square miles. Dude, if you can’t find a girlfriend in an area of more than 1962 square miles, the price of gas is probably the least of your problems.

Why Peter Graves and Mission Impossible specifically?

And of course there’s the matter of Peter Graves not being part of the show until the second season.

Intriguing, but the speech bubble was in German. I blocked it out for now, and you’re invited to supply your own quote. Friday morning I’ll upload the original version, and maybe somebody will be able to tell us what the artist intended.

On one hand, I have no idea what dinosaurs are doing here.
On the other hand I salute John Deering for using a clever gimmick: refer to a topic that’s trendy at the time he’s writing it, knowing the strip will be printed three weeks later, and referring to the topic as one that everybody’s tired of.
