    Thee would be no IQ anywhere in this picture if Julie hadn’t pasted it in for a Find-It.


    I had high hopes for this new character, Bill, raising the collective IQ of the neighborhood…
    at least into the visible range, that’s all I ask.


    But no, he is proving himself Pennyworthy.


    And here he is, socialising with them anyway, after all their crude insults.

    Actually, there must be a lot of Pennys out there…


    The Kraft company is always thinking up ways to make their macaroni and cheese faster and easier…


    Who wants to go to all the trouble of boiling some water in a pot and cooking noodles, then stirring in actual milk and butter (or butter-like substance) and magic super-cheese powder.


    So they made plastic cups of dry stuff, to which you add water, and then nuke ’em.


    But if THAT’s too hard I think you can get something almost-but-not-quite-like macaroni and cheese in plastic cups already pre-cooked… just nuke till warm.

    Mmmmmm – plastic cups, yum yum!

    (C’mon – it’s get to be the tastiest and most nutritious part of the meal. . . )

    I’m glad that Joy is still taking it easy. Dust behind the TV one day, dust the top the next. I wonder if she has such a rigid schedule for replacing TP rolls?
    Ah, the menu. Straight from carb heaven. Maybe she could open a can of corn to go with the lasagna and mac’n’cheese. There’s always instant potatos to consider with brown gravy mix in a packet. Yum!

    Must be a dream… that’s why the living room is on the wrong side of the telephone, eh? Or didn’t y’all notice that?

    Let’s all petition Cooking Channel to get Joy her own show: “Joy’s TIRED OF Cooking”.
    .
    Is new neighbour Bill polygomous? Why would anyone want a second mate that is comfortable in Crustwood? Maybe one is M or MIL? Ma will be furious and lobby to live with Joy and Burl? Questions, questions.

    I think I need to go out in the sunshine.

    And you might wonder why America is fat? I didn’t think so. Go to Costco and look in some of the carts. If the government took away microwaves half (more?) would starve. However I love mac n cheese (gluten free) occasionally. And that is the operative word, its not for every day. End of lecture!

    There is an I Q in the picture but I noticed it’s quite LOW on the back of Joy’s blouse. Certainly not anywhere near Burl.

    The little plastic cups come in handy when the morning patients run into the afternoon patients and I only have 15 min to inhale something.

    All combined I.Q.s in this comic = ZERO. You can’t find something that doesn’t exist.

    You’re a special kind of enlightened soul. And it’s encouraging that you understand that the government is the arbiter of what we may or may not eat.


    Thanks for posting!
