    Good morning, all . . .

    Well, Mary, at least you’ll get a story out of it.

    (Yeah, I know I’m stating the obvious. Still . . .)

    No, you are not making a mistake, you are moving the plot.

    “Are they burying a body?” That’s quite an imagination you have there, Mary!

    Wonder now how she will meet them. She
    has stashed herself away behind the rock.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Honestly, the comments are 10 times more interesting than the strip.

    I especially like LoboGrande’s comments. Seldom in life do we have the opportunity to witness such rabid arrogance.

    Alley employs a strange technique to fill a vial with soil.

    " … comment on idiots … " Really? Why would you want to respond to a post that you felt was written by an idiot?

    I have to agree with you, David. I come back several times a day to get comment updates.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley Oop. Why didn’t Doc bring along in his magical bag a army 1943 entrenching tool (shovel). Alley’s axe is useful for many things but digging is not one of them. Mary Godwin is suffering stalking remorse. Maybe Alley can approach her then have her faint, and have Alley carry her back into town.
    The townspeople can then think that he killed her and
    come at them with guns and pitchforks. Always a hit when
    shown in the movies. I really appreciate how the Benders
    shift back and force between Alley, Doc, and Mary giving their
    viewpoint of what we see unfolding. Thank you Benders for a great job. Give us more of the same.

    So true. I couldn’t agree more. I don’t think that Carole understands that if you are going to write a daily comic, it should at least provide a little daily entertainment. The comment section here provides way more entertainment than the strip and is the only reason I continue to read it.

    Gee, this strip would certainly win the “Mosey Contest”
    where the winner is the last one across the finish line while still continually moving forward.

    @A Person of Interest

    That’s a very deep question. Wonder what the answer would be, if sphinx would answer.

    This strip and the comments are a little like a restaurant where sometimes the ambiance helps you forget the food and sometimes it’s the other way around. Critics are the crabgrass in the lawn of life. So “Alley Oop” moves along like the 100-meter mosey… I’m retired. I’m not in any hurry to get someplace else. The Benders are OK by me.
