    Correct. The ‘Ku Klux’ part comes from the Greek kyklos, or kuklos, depending on how you want to transliterate it, meaning ‘circle’.

    San Fran’s not tolerant enough for a Klan joke.

    Or maybe the rest of you all wouldn’t stand for a Nun joke.


    I don’t think there’s anything sinister here; from time to time the strip in the Chronicle is slightly different from the GoComics version. It may have something to do with submission deadlines; Asmussen works pretty close to deadline, and perhaps he came up with the nun joke after he’d submitted the GoComics version but before the Chron was put to bed. (I’m assuming the GoComics cutoff is earlier because I think the Nun gag is funnier than the Klan gag.)

    The nun panel was here on GoComics two strips ago, on June 8 – http://www.gocomics.com/badreporter/2012/06/08
    For some reason that one doesn’t appear to have shown up on SFGate, which had nothing between 5/31 and 6/12 – http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/asmussen/archive/

    So put the KKK traffic cones on the Gay Highway to guide traffic through the emotional baggage.

    Just make sure the white hoods still have the klan men in them. One way to get rid of some those guys.

    If it’s a straight piece of road now, I see it could be a problem.

    Actually, some years back, The KKK in Missouri applied to Adopt-a-Highway stretch. The Missouri legislature determined they couldn’t legitimately refuse the application, so they granted it – and also renamed that particular stretch of road the Rosa Parks Memorial Highway…
