Dagwood sandwich shop mentioned in Blondie strip

Last week, I told you that Dean Young was opening a sandwich shop franchise. The story is getting good play in newspapers.  Interestingly, did you notice Saturday’s strip talked about Dagwood opening up such a store?

The sandwich shop now has a web site too.

Shameless commercialism.

If you’re quiet, you can hear Watterson screaming.

Now if only Scott Adams would start a soul-crushing corporation that produced some kind of shoddy vaguely computer-oriented products.

You guys sound like cult converts spewing out the party-line. Did Watterson or Adams give their cartoons away for free? We can buy some pretty funny Dilbert calendars. I’ve seen plenty of Calvin and Hobbes T-shirts. A Dagwood sandwich is defined in the Random House Unabridged Dictionary as “a thick sandwich filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, dressings, and condiments. Also called Dagwood.” It also states the the origin is “named after Dagwood Bumstead, a character in the comic strip Blondie.” A Dagwood sandwich shop is a reasonable encore to the comic strip. And what’s wrong with making money? After all, it drives our existence. If you don’t believe that, join Castro or Che … or some other failed communist revolutionary.

[…] a strip to pitch a side product isn’t entirely new. In the last couple of years, Dean Young used his Blondie strip to mention his new Dagwood sandwich franchise and Michael Fry and T. Lewis mentioned their movie Over the Hedge in their comic of the same title […]
