    More or less…. (Get it? Ha ha!)

    Also, if we took your idea a step further, and had them submit a video to Youtube of them “covering” a ZZ top song, Phil could stand in for Frank Beard, the drummer, the ironically beardless one!

    So, after they dropped him off, didn’t they see the run down house? I also hope they left him a few dollars.

    The house probably looked pretty good to them. They may not even have a house since they are on the road all the time.

    Seeing More and Less with those Vietnam veteran hats and the long grey beards is making me a little confused with the timeline. It must not be too long ago.

    Guy Gilchrist is the current writer and artist, and is filling in the backstory, as Ernie Bushmiller, (the original strip creator), never gave these details. So the strip is still the same, but the characters and art are more current, more modernized, updated for our times. “Uncles” More and Les are being introduced to give us some information to plug in the “holes” in regards to Sluggo, and his relationship to Nancy, Aunt Fritzi and Phil Fumble.

    Can anyone fill in the story about a year or so ago, there was a fishing contest, men showed up with thousands of dollars worth of gear-
    and a kid with a Mickey Mouse Ketchum kit landed the biggest fish?

    I guess it’s an understatement to say how many people have said this, when you consider some of the questions this raises with people. But look at some of the similar plots around, like “Punky Brewster” “Good Times”,etc.. Actually, there are many stories and shows like that… I myself may say about a story from xyz: “You couldn’t get away with doing that if that were real!” But I think that’s the thing. Some things we think are holes are there for us to fill in, some are what the artist chooses to. Sometimes, they are filled in right away, sometimes, it takes time, but it’ll get there. The elements in this strip from Bushmiller to present have run the gamut from the funny to the surreal to the tribute and memorial, as well as the occaisional "shoutout, if you will, to the people places and things we identify with in our culture…. here in this strip are things people can identify with, and at the heart of it, is “the human touch”…. that’s what’s central to all of this…. getting to the “heart”, not just the “head”, of the matter…..

    “and isn’t that what Christmas is all about?”
    Sorry, it came to me and I just had to say/write it.

    When I first saw More and Les, I thought they might be a take-off on the famous Smith brothers, whose pictures used to appear on boxes of Smith Brothers cough drops. It was the Smith Brothers who first pioneered the idea of putting cough drops in a handy box which people could carry around with them. Up until that point, cough drops were sold by the pound – you went into the general store, scooped up your cough drops from a barrel, and the clerk charged for the cough drops by judging the weight of the bag. It would be interesting if Guy could follow up with more ideas about Sluggo being named Sluggo Smith. One of my great-grandfathers was named Smith. He fought in the Civil War and was wounded in a little skirmish following the Battle of Bull Run. He moved to the area between Kansas and Nebraska following the war. His first job as as a mule-skinner – but he was an actual black smith. So he eventually opened his own blacksmith shop. My great-grandfather’s family came from Scotland. Smith is an official Scottish clan – and has their own tartan. It would be sort of interesting to see Sluggo explore some of his Smith family roots.
