    And what, exactly, is wrong with Bobby Sherman?

    It’s too bad that these get updated with more topical references. I enjoyed the strip when it was current and appreciate the memories.

    Those who appreciate this strip don’t even know who Justin Beaver is. So, why changing the original?

    Yes, that feels a little strange. It says “1970” on the side of the strip and it’s clearly from the past. Why not just say David Cassidy or Bobby Sherman or whoever it was in the original? The younger people who didn’t know who that was could just Google it if they were curious.

    I concur with the other commentators.

    I disagree. The younger people don’t even read these comics.

    The original was Paul Newman, and this is a rerun.

    Here we go with the Justin Bieber thing agai!. Didn’t we have this argument last week? IN 1970 she really said Jim Morrison!

    Why are they running it again, they just ran it last week, with complaints. If they were going to rerun it, I would at least think that they would have put the original script back. What? You decided to piss people off twice with the same comic?

    Tsk, Emmy Lou, you are old enough to be Justin Bieber’s mom! Actually, I think you’re old enough to be his grandma. Even if you never age!!!!

    Marty son-in-law here! Ugggggh! THIS WAS AN UPLOAD ERROR! Ugggh! And the worst one! I’ll talk to Gocomics so this doesn’t happen again. SORRY! We’re just getting used to the scanning upload deal with GoComics. Please accept my apologies. Frustrations!

    Again guys…I’m really sorry about this. I hope you hear my frustration in this. Ugggh! Just emailed GoComics to find out the problem. SORRY!

    I kind of like the contrast. The heart throb of the moment may change, the technology may change, but the experience of being a teenage girl doesn’t. I like the idea of the original next to the updated caption.

    Hi Piksea! Thanx…I needed that. OMG—I couldn’t believe they ran that same one! Thanx! I see they got my email and ran the one for today. Relief. Thanx everyone for understanding!!

    She COULD have had a crush on Justin Bieber. Of course, it would have been Justin’s grandfather, who was also named Justin. That works.
