    Gotta stereotype when you have 3 panels, a few words, and the most intelligent audience on earth. Yes I meant intelligent, not a typo of ignorant,

    That should be “it ins’t good if it isn’t bad”. Besides profane words, “ain’t” is not good english.

    There is nothing profane about ‘ain’t’. It is, however, not the Queen’s English. The question is whether this is a ‘formal’ situation? You ‘gotta’ conclude that Lewreader thinks not. Why didn’t you correct him?

    I would say that this is not a formal situation no matter how hard you try to make it so.

    I think “ain’t” is a perfectly serviceable and fun contraction well used since at least the 18th century. Since this forum is hardly a formal setting, I’m with iangoodson that there’s no problem using it. Besides, in what way is it profane?

    Come on, guys! If you hate “Cathy” and are glad to see it (or her) go, then just come right out and say it! “Ack” indeed!

    This strip needs a Zits crossover.

    I don’t believe that “ins”t” is a word any more than I believe “ain’t” ain’t a word. Typos are a “biyotch” when you make them while trying to correct someone else.

    yeah me neither. luckily, though, white boys are graced with the ability to mosh… which seems more fun anyway

    Some women of my acquainance consider Cathy to be an offensive stereotype. Other women of my acquaintance consider her to be a humorously-exaggerated mirror of their own personalities. They love the gal, partly because she acts out what they sometimes find themselves thinking, even when they know better.

    She’s an affectionate caricature of some women, and was never meant to be representative of all women, much less a “role model”.

    I read it when it was in my daily paper, but when they dropped it a few years ago I didn’t go looking for it online. Still, I know a couple of women (of very different types) who were really upset to see it go.

    I’m only here now to see the finale.

    The one strip whose decay has been a REAL disappointment for me is “Dennis the Menace”; Dennis used to be a Hell-Child; the strip used to be FUNNY. But for ages now it’s just been “cute”, and Dennis is hardly more of a menace than Billy, Jeffy, and Dolly Keane.

    I’ve got no beef with some of the “dinosaur” strips that others complain about. I still read and enjoy “Blondie” and “Beetle Bailey”, for instance. But comparing Dennis Mitchell in 2010 with Dennis Mitchell in, say, 1960? “Oh, what a falling-off was there!”
