  1. She fainted because it was shocking to see something so wrong with pop and ma that they fainted.

  2. Doubling on Singapore Bills. It’s a literary device and she fainted at the impropriety of it all.

    What I don’t get is where did the attractive woman disappear to between panels six and seven.

  3. Watching people collapse (for whatever reason, real [4th panel] or imagined [8th panel]) might have been funny in the vaudeville era, but it just doesn’t work today. It’s simply not productive to delve into the obscure, recycled archives of cheap slapstick humor. The last panel proves that it was all just for effect.
    P.S. If I were (Heaven forbid!) the Editor at GoComics, “Mutt & Jeff” would be at the top of my list of strips to cancel. It has long since outlived any usefulness it may once have had.

  4. “What I don’t get is where did the attractive woman disappear to between panels six and seven.”

    Nor is Mutt’s wife actually shown falling over. I wonder if they’ve taken out a whole row of panels.
