    Okay, I don’t get the last item in the To Do list today. What about a bun and Dale’s coat??? As for Timmy’s statement, I was waiting for Burl to make a crack about Timmy carrying a purse.

    Even my twisted mind can’t figure this one out.

    Yeah, this one doesn’t seem to follow. In a way though, I guess this makes it a perfect DS strip. I was going to say we should wait for Leaky but he’s already diagnosed and gone. Now we’re really in trouble.
    And re: playing the property tax card, be sure to try that with the fire dept and see how long it takes them to find your house, Burl. “Oh, you said West Main? We thought you said East Main. We couldn’t get new local street maps because the tax money ran out. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

    OK, so in Burl-world, Timmy can take whatever he wants from his teacher’s purse..

    because they, ever so generously, paid the property taxes that gave her all that money…

    Her hard work apparently has nothing to do with her salary…
    Those dollars still belong to the taxpaying citizens of Crustwood, and their sticky-fingered offspring..

    So…. if you pay your storage rent….
    does that entitle you to rifle the contents of Burl’s stash-drawer…
    the one where he puts the “found” objects to take home?

    Not on your life, I bet.
    He wouldn’t even give you one of the sticks of gum he stealsborrows from his boss’ glove compartment.

    He works hard for that gum.

    Of course, none of that explains “Put Dale’s coat in Bun my room.”

    My best guess?
    It was supposed to say “Put Dale’s coat in my room”…

    as in… “let me take your coat”…
    which turns out to mean literally…

    And “Bun” was accidentally left there from the last time Julie used this panel.

    She’s not great at proofreading.

    But your guess is as good as mine.

    Oh I thought ale carries buns in his coat and that is Joys way of taking what’s not theirs. Yea like they need buns or any kind of bread. I was hoping Timmy was smarter than that, or maybe the teacher was talking to the whole class because someone else was dipping their hand in her purse.
    Teachers do work hard for their $$ and spends quite a bit on supplies for the classroom it’s not fair for them.
    No apple for her Maybe she’ll be glad after all 30+ apples are enough.

    Property taxes pay for the public schools. But I think the parents should have to pay! Stick em with a bill as soon as they pop out a baby. I don’t have any kids (that I know of). Why should I have to pay for the school system?

    I laughed when I read the note to clean under the chair. Then I looked under MY office chair. I know just what he means.

    Probably so that when you and I are on the old folks’ home we can be certain that the caregiver can read our prescription bottle for starters. Also so that there is some really smart entrepreneur making a gazillion dollars—and paying taxes on it—to pay for our Social Security, Madicare and make sure the road between us and the hospital is fixed. The benefits of public education to the general population and the nation are endless.

    Well, I think the kids should pay for their education, we just add K-12 school loan program to college loan program, then they will owe $100,000 at high school graduation, decalre bancruptcy and thus it will be free like college is for some.

    Probably the whole class looking for treats, and she was conerned someone would get into the flask she keeps in there to get through the day.
