    Shouldn’t these two be texting each other rather than talking to each other?

    Just because we CAN, doesn’t mean we SHOULD. Pity we can’t learn that.

    In the background, the teenagers who read books are shown going to class and experiencing the intellectual life of young adults. Zipper and Jeff, walled out from that academic experience, use their books or computers as pillows and grow old (note the falling leaves) trying to compile an “archive” of youth as they remember it.

    These are two of his slightest characters, yet GBT makes their nostalgia poignant as they try to recapture the youth that they squandered so heedlessly. All they can remember is getting “hammered.”

    “If I had a hammer, / I’d hammer in the morning / I’d hammer in the evening, / All over this land."
     
    So modestly singeth the naked temptress. Then — sopping stringy glistening black hair hanging down and sticking all over her face, and glittering blood-red lips puckering to form that uniquely lethal kiss — she boasteth:
     
    “That be how 7,967,000,000 teenoids be rendered nailed."
     
    Then vaulteth she away, faster than light, into the higher dimensions of the Bulk (conjured up by theoretical cosmological particle physicist Lisa Randall), as a way of bidding them all a “fond” farewell.
     
    Yet complaineth the 3’ high black lettering all over the front of the 1st sacrificial victim, the pure homecoming princess:
     
    ALL I GOT FROM TAKING ALL THIS HAMMERING WAS THIS LOUSY WET TEE SHIRT

    My teenage years were 1956-62, and not only was it a different time, it seems like it was a different planet. In a different galaxy.

    On the other hand, as a teenage boy, my life revolved around cars, girls, and beer… so maybe it wasn’t so different after all.

    Not Jeff. Call this guy Dude. • Dude’s hair style is different (always in need of a haircut, whereas Jeff always looks newly shorn). • Dude’s jawline is stronger (bigger) than Jeff’s. • Nose somewhat longer and “cutoff” looking. • Slightly larger “kangaroo pouch” than what Jeff can boast. • Language style different, a bit more techy and more knowledgeable about programming. • You never see Jeff lying supine flat on back on ground, but Dude quite often. • I’ve never seen Jeff in a “headband with a bill”.

    I’m proud to say I’m a teen that’s not among the 7.967 billion.

    Whether that’s because I don’t drink or because I’m just not on Facebook is for me to know only ;).

    So true, so sadly true.

    I agree that GBT has modified Jeff’s appearance to conform to Jeff’s image of his dimly remembered Walden (?) years. But the companionship with Zipper—-the only character whose dim bulb makes Jeff look bright—-is part of Doonesbury history. Remember how they collaborated to rescue Bumtrff?
