    Gotta give Jef credit for being one of the few cartoonists that actually gives his characters four fingers, rather than three. Probably compensatory behavior for his name having only one F.

    @frumdebang And yet in panel three, Caulfield’s left hand appears to have only four digits altogether!

    I actually clean and work around my house on weekends. Otherewise I would go nuts just napping and watching TV.

    Get some caffeine and sugar into yourself, 1012. I’m counting five digits.

    I cringed as I read Caulfield’s dialog in the third panel. I thought he was referring to Mrs. Olsen’s mental health, and of how destroying it was his leisure activity. Turns out he was only saying something disrespectful about his mother. A relief!

    Caufield understands his mom must have good mental health (pleased) with him or he gets no leisure time himself. A logical observation and not insulting in the least Bigpuma.

    You don’t get credit for drawing 5 digits if the hands look like inflated latex gloves.

    9000 – I don’t know why it’s been removed, but the “About Frazz” text, upper right, used to advise that all of the Frazz characters wear inflated latex gloves as some sort of comment on our modern society.* As I myself have the manual dexterity of a worm, I will give credit to anyone who can draw a recognizable human being, fat fingers or no.

    @frumdebang Egad! You’re absolutely right! Pushing the glasses up a little higher made all the difference….

    You mean Frazz not Caufield and his thumb is not visible as he is holding the cord and a thumb is necessary for the grip, otherwise the cord is just floating in that loop.

    @Red Repoc No, I meant Caulfield, whose left hand is at Frazz’s elbow. I really did mistake what I was seeing!

    Looks like his mom is fine. My room was always spotless and in order. I didn’t own anything and I was never home.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    It’s a logical observation to suggest that your mother is mentally ill just because she asks you to straighten up? I see.

    Who knows if he means it, or if he’s just using overstatement to give his complaint a sharper edge? Whatever he’s up to, though, it’s cheeky.
