    It’s “unfazed,” Mr. Graham.

    Not if you are ‘dealing’ with English ‘English’, it is quite proper. We, Americans, have ‘diluted’ the English language to suit our own purposes. Yes, I’m a ‘Britophile’ and proud of it!!

    “Unphased” shows as a correct spelling in Webster’s, and was perhaps a common British way of spelling the word when Mr. Graham was alive, twenty plus years ago.

    I’m afraid ‘Unphased’ is the English way…….and the strip was inked more like twenty weeks ago rather than twenty years ago…….‘Google’ for a little more Fred history…..x

    He won’t be when he gets to the next panel, and finds out the gate’s open.

    Fred must know this particular dog can’t jump this particular fence so he’s safe. Otherwise he’d be running as he does from the Grosvenor (?) gang.

    I like Fred’s use of the English language and across the pond idioms.

    Sorry Penny, how about you join the rest of the English speaking world instead? You might come to savour the flavour and find it a little more colourful. Or you could just learn that not everyone does things the same way you do, or wants to…

    Not according to the British “Chambers Dictionary” on my shelf. Fazed and unfazed is correct in Britain; unphased doesn’t appear.

    Pardon, MiM, I’m new to Fred. Would rather enjoy the comic than spell-check it anyway :)
