    That is a hysterical reference to a somewhat obscure Pacino movie…1973?

    Obscure?!? I think it is a rather famous movie, IMHO.

    I hadn’t the foggiest what today’s strip referred to, but knew I could count on you commenters for clues. I used the few I had gleaned, and came up with this from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attica_Prison_riot
    “In the film Dog Day Afternoon, (1975), Al Pacino’s character, Sonny, who is holding eight bank employees hostage, starts the chant, “Attica! Attica!”, at the massed police outside, evoking the excessive police force used in response to the Attica riot. The chant “Attica! Attica!” has since been parodied or used for comedic effect in everything from children’s cartoons to crime procedurals.[citation needed]"

    Thanks of the clarification. I was so in the dark I was thinking of “To Kill a Mockingbird”, when the mad dog came down the street and thought he meant “Atticus”, duh!

    Thank you. I never saw “Dog Day Afternoon”, so I was at a bit of a loss as to how that movie connected with the prison riot.

    Everyone is in their yard spending endless hours tending to their lawns so that they can fit into the neighborhood and not be thought of badly. But that doesn’t matter. After all that yard work there is no time to socialize anyway.

    The “Dog Days of Summer” referred to by the Romans was in reference to the Dog Star Sirius. That it had influence at that time over the Earth.
