I know the cow jumped over the moon and the dish ran away with the spoon, but other than that I don’t see any connection.

Okay, actually…

This isn’t past tense. It’s conditional, so “I’d hanged” would be correct.

Of course this all would have been less awkward if he’d said “I feel insignificant” in which case “I hanged” would indeed have been correct.

Just saying… if you’re going to do a strip based on grammar, you might want to have somebody proofread it.

Broncosaurus

Morris Keesan informs me that the hovertext was “broncosaurus.”

Which is troubling, because it means the hovertext disease has spread to another comic, and now I won’t b able to use Buni strips as CIDUs anymore: because I have no good way to store hovertexts along with comics and if I don’t include the hovertext for a comic that uses them, people will go hunting down said hovertext, whether or not it does anything to explain the comic.

Have I mentioned how much I hate hovertexts (and !@#$ squirrels)?

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe in which teenagers phone one another instead of text AND cell phones are loud enough that other people can hear what’s being said from across the room AND volume can’t be turned down AND people are incapable of holding a cell phone and walking out of a room at the same time…

Wouldn’t that be “last person standing”?

It is my observation that there has never in the history of comics been a strip mocking political correctness that’s been even remotely funny; or I’ll go further, that’s even made sense. The last “political correctness” humor I can recall was back in the 1980s when on some Jim Henson program (I seem to remember it not being the Muppet Show), a monster said he doesn’t like being called a monster, but prefers “cosmetically challenged.” If that doesn’t seem all that funny today, that’s my point: thirty years ago, this was a new gag.

I hereby establish the Mrs. Freeman Award for anybody who finds a “political correctness” comic that actually makes you chuckle.
