    Best bet? The late Johnathon Winters.

    I am guessing Roger Ebert (Rest in Peace)

    Probably not Jonathan Winters – I don’t think Winters worked as part of a team, for the most part, he was actually fairly tall compared to most of the people I remember him working with (which was part of the joke, when he played Robin William’s son), and he only died 4 days ago, which is way less than the lead time for a syndicated strip.

    Ah, yes, it fits Ebert, perfectly…that still suggests Johnson’s working on a thinner lead time than most, but at least it’s a reasonable one.

    Roger Ebert worked with other people after Siskel… and he was fatter at first, and then thinner.
    I don’t remember any popular perception of one being noticeably shorter or more “jovial”…


    And he just died a week ago…
    JJ doesn’t usually work that fast…


    I’m thinking maybe this is about a comedy team…
    But Oliver Hardy and Lou Costello were both the tall as well as the heavy ones of their duos.
    Martin and Lewis were both fairly thin…

    So who was short and fat and therefore considered jovial?
    Plus a “generational icon!”


    Any boomer age teams fit the bill?

    Curly Howard, as simpsonfan2 said earlier, or Lou Costello.

    It has to be Roger Ebert. Took a look at celebrity deaths, 2013 and he fits the profile. Since there doesn’t seem to be a storyline we are following.it would be easy to slip it in and pay tribute to roger.

    Avoiding humor is more like it.

    I first thought Lou Costello, which didn’t make much sense. Then finally thought of Roger Ebert, and it all fell into place. Still working on yesterday’s strip.

    This strip is getting to be like vanity plates that don’t make sense.
