    Okay, so they finally figured out the shoulder strap difference.
    I can see the conversation now:

    GUZ: See, Oop? I told you I’d figure it out! All you gotta do is remember that one of ‘em wears her strap on her RIGHT shoulder, and the other one wears hers on her LEFT. That’s why I’m king, because I can figure these kind of things out.

    OOP: So all I gotta do is remember which shoulder Ooola wears her strap on.

    GUZ: Don’t talk about that kind of stuff, Oop. It’s still a family strip. But yeah, all you gotta do is remember which shoulder Ooola uses.

    OOP: So which one is Ooola?

    Yes, and if I had to have the money, honey, I’d strap you in beside me (in a strapless!) and never, ever leave you, leave you at home all alone and cryin’!

    Are Alley & Guz genetically colour-blind? Otherwise the dress-colour would also have been a clue.

    How dense they are is shown (as FENRISULFR pointed out) by the fact it took so long for Guz to even figure out the straps are on opposite shoulders.

    (BTW, FENRISULFR—the straps issue is family-friendly, South Asian children know Indian women wear sari over left and Sri Lankan women over right)

    Brilliant observation, Sherlock. After how many months?

    I’ll make a positive comment. Today’s strip is no sillier than yesterday’s. Or the day before. Or …

    Remember for the umpteenth time: Oola’s in red, Lola’s in blue.

    You call that a positive statement? It’s obvious you don’t enjoy viewing this strip, so why do you? Oh I think I have figured it out. You enjoy complaining. lol!

    It has been mentioned more than once that Oop and Guz are both color blind.

    Oop and Guz are color blind as a courtesy to dead-tree readers and those who still receive the strip on pressed blocks of mud.

    OK. I’ll confess to any crime. I will even provide my ATM P.I.N. number! I’ll even go back to being Catholic. I’d rather have the Spanish Inquisition pull my toenails out and sprinkle salt than suffer thru another stoopit day of this ridiculous “comic” strip. How the mighty have fallen. How I miss the actual storylines of the past…

    If you don’t want to “suffer through another day” of this story, then don’t. Pure and simple.

    Silliness is fine, we love silliness. Most of these bits would be really okay if only the pace picked up. Taking forever to tell a joke is what kills the party.

    Haven’t they switched dresses by now?

    Guz thinks he’s okay now. But he’s looking at them from the front. When they turn around, he be confused again.
