    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!

    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.

    *This is not technically true.

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

    @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.

    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.

    And you probably grew up to be a Republican, right?

    I really wonder about you sometimes, Gaunt …

    @trusty2 “Brachiation”!!! My very own New Word of the Week. Did not have to look it up when I ran into it last night in Carl Sagan’s novel Contact (I once knew how to do italics here, but have forgotten). Something about primates “still brachiating from tree to tree,” or words to that effect. New words are one of the things I love about this strip.

    I love words! Old ones, new ones, slang, cussing, made up ones…especially those! They say the pen is mightier than the sword. But without words, the pen can only poke somebody in the eye!…..A sword can poke and slice and dice any which way…The greatest invention was the word. Second? The sentence…..
