    “itisme” said it better than anybody else here: “You know that is what’s going to happen. Scancarelli is a master at telling a punch line long before it’s due.”

    now that I read this strip, I feel like checking also alley oop, because, why read only one bad strip?

    Is the expression monkey suit used now days? My dad (who would be almost 93 now, gosh I miss him) called a tux a monkey suit when I got married 30 years ago. I had never heard that term until then, and I bet a real life Slim wouldn’t have, either.

    I use/mis-use the term “monkey suit” for anything less than the most comfortable/practical/casual clothes..
    Sweat pants and sweat shirt…and I seldom sweat….lol

    I still visit ALLEY OOP from time to time, but I also stopped reading it daily. IMHO it is poorly written and illustrated … a sad ending to a once great old strip.

    Jim sure made a monkey out of Slim. I haven’t heard monkey suit for many years. I doubt that most people under 40 would understand it. Slim’s in his 60s, but he may not have made the association. Instead of griping, let’s laugh and enjoy the humour.

    I can’t blame Slim for this one. He was actually very agreeable to wear something like that when he thought it was what Walt asked him to do.

    Great strip today The punch line was telegraphed but
    still enjoyable. Sad that passing by snobs sneers at great comics.

    oh, give me a break! Tribune cancels BRENDA STARR and ANNIE and this strip continues with this cornball stuff?
