Sunday Funnies – Some That Mike Didn’t Mention

Wishing Jenny Campbell blue skies.

Was aware of the Christmas Covid problems Jenny had,
but nothing of today’s Flo & Friends topic (if it means what I think).

 

What could make an All-American Family turn on Stephan Pastis?

Read the disgusting Pearls Before Swine before we throw it on the burn pile.

 

To quote Ignatz:

I actually enjoy the Brigman-era Mary Worth, because Brigman and Moy obviously know it’s ridiculous, play it for all its worth and sometimes make me laugh out loud.

The proof is in the pudding … and today’s Mary Worth.

 

An atypical Mike Manley Sunday strip.

The barren background in today’s Judge Parker seems odd.

 

Started the weekend with a British Invasion.

Betty, Andy Capp, Crankshaft, and Betty again.

 

A rare appearance by Shrimp & Grits supporting character Sweet Pea.

Though I thought it was Sweet P.

So I’m watching Ancient Aliens yesterday or the day before (Hey! I don’t have to explain my viewing habits!) when they start with those monoliths from a couple Decembers ago as a lead in to those and all other monoliths throughout history being proof of extraterrestrial visitations. Now these are new shows treating the debunked pillars as honest-to-gosh mysteries.

That brings us to today’s Gil and “Basic Cable.”

Manley has put every bit as much effort into that background as Marciuliano has put into the dialog. But that’s OK, a glance at weekday Phantom shows that Manley’s prodigious skills are being put to good use somewhere

What does Andy Capp’s singing of Lola have to do with the Beatles? The only version I know is by the Kinks. Or am I missing the point somewhere?

Andrea – “with a British Invasion.” As with that sixties
phenomena so The Beatles dominate the above samples.

I guess my quibble would be with the artist – can anyone imagine Andy Capp singing a song about a transgendered/cross-dressing person? More likely beat him/her/them up. Unless he’s never listened to more of the song than the refrain.

Wonder if Delainey and Rassmussen had a fallback “Betty” available in case a quick pull was needed for that last strip.

“Unless he’s never listened to more of the song than the refrain.”

Well, I was vaguely aware of the song for many years without actually groking anything except the refrain, and I’m not even (usually) as drunk as Andy is (usually), so I guess it’s possible.

(Of course I sort of listened to it, in the sense that it played on the radio or whatever, but as far as I remember I didn’t pay much attention to it.)

Well, I’m not the world’s most masculine man
But I know what I am and I’m glad I’m a man
And so is Lola
