    There is a commercial on PBS for one of their major supporters, Liberty Mutual.

    An indirect breach of the fourth wall?

    Nothing indirect about it.

    I recently read a complaint that NYC no longer has any good bagel places. Someone explained that bagels are traditionally dipped in a lye solution to create the chewy crust and help in the browning. But since lye is caustic, OSHA required these places to add emergency eye baths and showers. The stores found it easier to just make a doughier, paler bagel. The law of unintended consequences. (If you have trouble understanding what this has to do with the cartoon,… well, just think about it.)

    Nah, not this time, just a man thinking to himself.
    .

    Now let us contemplate the attotude which would put out warning cones near the hazard rather than pick it up.
    .
    Then we can meditate on those who would create the hazards in the first place.
    .
    Or we can dread Janis’ fate as she walks up while focused on smart phone.
    .
    Busy day ahead of us.

    Last week they were focusing on Gene, his wife, and their garden. What happened to that story?

    Thanks, Varnes. I was trying to put all the musings together to extract the meaning, and your post did it.

    Too many lawyers, anymore, for even a good old fashioned cartoon gag!

    This is great. One of the classic examples of why Arlo and Janis is a truly amazing strip. Thanks.

    Mythbusters took on slipping banana peels. Only it is very hard to slip on one.
