    No clue as to where this is going.

    I suspect Gary originally had a few more strips poking fun at those who thought the world was coming to an end – but he felt sorry for them and decided to give them a pass.

    This looks familiar. I demand I show me my birth certificate. I’m that old? Last thing I remember was a young man named Zonker evading the draft, er studying at Walden Puddle. They elected who?

    Perhaps he had a lot more strips queued up about Trump’s presidential bid – and had to toss them…

    It’s funny. We know these are repeat trips, but the date signature in the panel is for today. Does GBT think his readers don’t know this?

    “A comedian is a man with a good memory for jokes standing before an audience that he hopes does not.” - Where does that quotation come from? I can’t remember.

    Doughfoot, that’s because they pull vacation strips from the same date some number of years earlier.
    I think he’s actually taking a vacation week—the strip’s not running in the paper this week.

    It definately was Zeke. He thought there was insurance money involved . See, he’s calling for a lawyeer already.

    Doughfoot, I don’t know who said it, (probably a comedian..), but I like it! BTW, guys, if you click on the comic it gets larger, and you can see the year (2010) in the space between panel one and two…

    ^Doughfoot, it was probably Milton Berle. I once heard him – in the late 1980’s I think – cracking hilarious jokes that I hadn’t heard before. Then I realized he was probably pulling material from his ‘Vaudeville memory banks’ . . . 60-year old humor that very few living people can remember.

    @Doughfoot

    What wiwo said. Note that the strip date doesn’t have a year.

    As I recall, this mystery is never resolved.

    Either vacation or having to dump the Trump (or rapture) strips.

    Yes I recall when this firs ran which I think was still when the dates started in the 1900’s. I don’t think it was resolved.

    Good eye. Though I checked last year and these are not the strips that ran in late May in 2010.

    Heck beady, if GT’s stumped with Trump he could use Newt instead.
