    Some of these are funnier than others. My favorites are:
    “Finding a mate through breath analysis” – Since I typically think of breath analysis as a means to determine if you are drunk, I am interpreting this as “Find a mate who isn’t drunk.”
    -
    “The incredible prunes and bran buds diet” – The humor here is that you can diet through pooping. It seems reasonable.

    I always wanted to work for one of those magazines. It takes such skill and brain power to create all those ridiculous stories.

    The last 3 times I was in the “express” line there was an old lady in front of paying by check which takes about two to three minutes to process, annoying everyone else behind me. I used my debit card which took all of 30 seconds. Can’t they remember a simple pin. number instead of using the monetary equivalent of the buggy whip?

    An “old lady” using “the monetary equivalent of the buggy whip” is quite likely not very tech savvy with something as simple (to us) as a debit/credit card. Try to be a little patient with elderly folks,friend. God willing,that’ll be you one day.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I’d occasionally buy the National Enquirer if I recognized the celebrity on the cover — and cared! I did, however, buy the News of the World regularly. Who could resist headlines like the ones I had fun with in this strip?! The stories were so wonderfully preposterous, I secretly wished I was one of their writers. A few years before this fine rag went belly up, I read a headline that was very similar to “Octogenarian gives birth to triplets” (panel three), and I hoped it had come from this strip!

    Breath analysis is used to determine if you are alive … You’re breathing, you’re alive …

    i saw a headline this week for finding your mate via DNA analysis.
    We’ve advanced so.

    Speaking of advancing…
    I think what matters is the content of a bank account, and the person interfacing with it, more than the interface used.
    I wonder how little-ol’-lady’s account & banking habits compare to MR. A_Deam4u’s.

    Her generation didn’t have electronic banking.
    Her generation invented it.

    I am surprised the store still takes checks. Most places here stopped.

    bet the lady paying with a check doesn’t have to worry about someone stealing her credit/debit card information and charging up a big bill. Lately it is so bad with different stores being hacked that I have started using cash when I can.

    I haven’t seen any stores that refuse checks. I don’t write them much but I do try to use cash when possible. I also check my bank account every day just in case.
