    If this were the Wizard of Oz,

    Mordred would be the “Wicked Witch of the West” (Evil)

    Thick would be the “Scarecrow” (No Brain)

    That is why he is going to undo the chains

    Tell me why you’re a killer!!! Give me a break. Why is the sky blue. Why is the earth round.

    Tracy could sing an old Tom Jones song, Delilah and change the wording and say:

    Why, why, why……..Mordred!!!

    Don’t worry; there’s no way Dick’s dumb enough to remove the chains!

    There. That’s more interesting than whatever idiocies Locher will dribble out over the next several days.

    byzcath said, “I am now following “Li’l Abner” on comics.com. Now that “Gooch” is insane, an episode of “Fearless Fosdick” will begin tomorrow. Can’t be any worse than this drivel!”

    Thanks, byzcath! I always liked Fosdick. Tracy’s not very funny these days.

    I’m just a pawn in the game of life, margueritem. I found out about Fosdick from byzcath in yesterday’s DT.

    Happy Anniversary! It’s been one month since Sam said “This calls for a maximum effort and that means us. Get into your all-weather gear right away!”

    Probable cause for the delay: Sam knows he has to put his galoshes on, but can’t remember what they are.

    We all know that Thick will undo the chains.

    When he does that, Mordred will break out singing

    “Amazing Grace” checkout the words of the song.

    Amazing Thick How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost, but now I’m found, Was blind, but now I see ‘Twas Thick that taught my heart to love In an Old Granary How precious did that Thick appear The hour I first believed MY CHAINS ARE GONG I’ve been set free My Thick , my Savior has ravaged me AND LIKE A FLOOD, His mercy reigns Unending love, Amazing Thick

    Just undo the *&$@>£!% chains and get it over with (whatever it is).

    Ah-hah! The romance has moved into roleplaying! The game is “Doctor.” Think will invite his beloved to recline on a couch and talk about his early childhood … his dreams … his heart’s desire … and all the while Thick will move closer to the improvised couch. Then he will offer to show Mordred some inkblots. “What does panel #1 remind you of?” he’ll ask.

    “A granary!” Morbid will sob. “Lately all the panels remind me of a granary! Why is that? It’s horrible! Can you help?”

    “You, perhaps,” Thick will murmur in his ear, “But Locher? He’s beyond help!”

    Well less that four weeks for the MAGIC to start appearing on those forward strips -.Sunday. March 14. As many have hailed Mike Curtis and Joe Staton

    Soon the guys from “Ripley”s’ Believe it or Not”’ will be knocking on a door in Napervile to interview the American artist who was first to achieve it.

    The trick was to sustain dialogue for near 3 months without any significant story FORWARD movement occuring in the strip.It’s a lot harder than you would think.

    Word on the street is that Locher’s set a ‘new record’ and that the powers are also likey to pick him for the Reuben Award, which he hasn’t won yet. A sort of gesture for long service.. Since Lee Falk of Phantom fame passed on Dick at - 81 is the oldest man doing comics.

    Look out for one more ‘appearance’ of Junior Tracy the ‘look alike’ character of Dicky Locher’s late son John.

    “Tell me why you’re a killer.” “Uh, ‘cause it’s fun.”

    Maybe Mordred has the same problem as Brenda Anne Spencer:

    (I expect Mordred’s expanation to be even lamer.)

    Whatever is going to happen next, please don’t tell me. I want to maintain the delusion that Locher has given Thick at least a minimal sense of survival. I want to think that he’s conning Mordred in an effort to get some useful information out of him. Not “Why did you do it, peckerwood,” but “Did you kill anyone else?” and “Where did you hide their bodies, so we can let their next of kin know about them?”

    Otherwise, maybe Mordred isn’t going anywhere, but neither is Thick. At least not until Mordred throws his cold, lifeless body into the flood waters.

    And I defy anyone to hold their hand the way Thick does in panel #2. Geeze Louise, how hard is it for Locher and Brozman to find a credible example of a human hand? They should have at least four of them in easy reach.
