Well, I guess we’re not going to find out whether Junior still likes R.E.M. :D There are much more important matters to discuss, and I’m thinking that various commenters guess that Sparkle is pregnant will turn out to be correct.
Christmas Early was saying that Dick has a large family. It looks like Junior will have a large family himself. In the past, babies have always sparked interest in the strip. Maybe this will help boost the “ratings” too.
