    I like how the cat just sits on his shoulder like a parrot.

    Ever-hopeful Eddie must be smoking some strange stuff in his pipe!

    Try a reverse cycle flow-thru hull.

    Gimme Gimme oh ahem. Getting the water in works ok, but it just won’t flow through and back out again.

    I think it’s time to abandon that particular ship, Captain Eddy.

    Wait a sec.. Flow thru? As in teabag? The theory doesn’t work, so the party’s over?

    Am I reading political commentary into a silly strip?

    ^There is always political commentary in this strip. This one is pretty blatant.

    ^^Grog, are you saying we should abandon this particular country? That’s the ship Wiley is talking about.

    A programmer sent his girlfriend a coded message to test her love, but I think that was ASCIIng too much.

    Looks like the Flow-Thru Hull Theory works about as well as Keynes’ General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

    So why do we keep following this theory which sinks the economy on a regular basis?

    Flow thru = trickle down = doesn’t work =keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    He should get a subsidy. Every one else in the US gets one.

    RussellNash, some people have a knack for finding political commentary in a comic strip - even when it’s not there, some people can’t make a comment without making some sort of political wisecrack.

    Me, all I was talking about was a boat.

    The fallacy of applying Einstein’s definition of insanity – keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results – to dealing with a national economy is that you never are doing the same thing twice. Circumstances always change, including those that you forgot to consider before that turned out to be crucial.

    Microeconomics – the theory of economic behavior of the individual, the household, the business firm – has been established for well over a century, with only minor tweaks and refinements since. It works magnificently, and no one has a problem with it. Macroeconomics – the theory of economic behavior of a nation as a whole – has never been more than an ad hoc work in progress, made up and made over as needed to respond to the latest problem.

    That’s why macroeconomic theories – Marxism, socialism, Keynesianism, monetarism, trickle-down plutocracy – never die: you can always point to at least one instance where your pet theory really did work, so just maybe it’ll work again, if you just ignore the times when it didn’t. We economists are an optimistic bunch at heart.

    Flow thru hull theory, it is not rocket science. It does sound like the drive system in the “Hunt for Red October”. Hum, Sean Connery as Cpt’n Eddie.
