Well, I just took a look at who’s reading my book: it’s A. Morey.

Walt’s supposed to be an XXL? And Momma Keene is supposed to be thickset and squat??Or is something else going on in the Zits strip?Does Momma Duncan (damn, her name is right on the tip of my tongue) think that Walt will appear to be thinner if he wears XXL pants. Though they don’t seem to be XXL pants.
Okay, I don’t even know if this is a CIDU. And I’m not even going to try to figure out the right acronym for that.

Yeah, one of my favorites as well — until we get to “deer saver’s turf,” and that’s when she loses me.

Got it. Precocious 10-year-old hasn’t figured out why “Santa” looks like her father. But what’s with the Mrs Claus comment?

I am still in shock over how mind-bogglingly awful last night’s Lost finale was — especially since for a show that’s essentially a multi-year puzzle, the final episode makes or breaks the entire run. Still, this is where to discuss that.
Just to get the ashen taste out of my mouth, I’m reposting the 2008 discussion about best endings…

So is the joke here that a) substitute teachers are dumb, and b) substitute teachers make up bumper stickers to drum up business for themselves?

What exactly is going on here? Mrs. Keene is berating the teacher because Jeri got the assignment wrong? This wouldn’t even make sense if Mrs. Keene has ever shown signs that she even liked Jeri. Theirs is without question the most unsettling parent-child relationship in mainstream comics.

Well not really convenient when you think about it, and now that I’ve been made to think about it, Ewww!
