    That is why there is the sit down strike.

    It’s my understanding Zipper is Zonker’s nephew, right? That suggests that Zonker has another sibling somewhere in the Doonesbury universe. So, just where is he or her? Ought to be a good story in itself.

    Funny how “nephews” turn up in comics (Popeye’s five nephews, Donald Duck’s three nephews, etc.) when the implied circumstances could be less than funny.

    So it is possible to be fired from Mickey D’s (or whatever it’s called in the strip)?

    Unionizing is frowned upon.

    You gotta agree, though, that this is the most succinct description of Zonker Harris we’ve seen yet. I mean, it’s a good encapsulation.

    Perhaps, but agitating for a union is not considered legal grounds for termination.

    On the other hand, as today’s strip demonstrates, it’s not exactly difficult to find a reason to fire Zonker.

    Zipper is the Son of God, born of virgin birth.

    God’s been known to do that.

    Zipper is the Son of God. God has a lot of Sons. Daughters too. Just wish more of them knew it and acted like it.

    Depends on where you live. In “right to work” states, breathing is legal grounds for firing.

    Considering how old Zonker is, why isn’t his hair grey like all the other Boomers?
