    If this turns out to be true, I’m gonna start reading FC.

    Reminds me of a Doonesbury a long time ago that was a puzzle for the whole week…except they left out the punchline piece…

    Don’t read doonesbury very often now. It used to be a lot better. When he started doing “quotes” from people that hadn’t actually been said, I lost interest.

    Yes, Jeffy, you do need forgiveness… but that’s not what you’re gonna get.

    That would make my dial-up pain worth it. I’m not a FC hater. But payback is required.

    WOW….just WOW!

    TWO expletive ‘symbols’ that clearly are representing ONE, xtra bad word….AND it’s a Family Circus slam at the same time.

    I LOVE IT!!!!

    Actually, I believe the proper order is:
    6 1 3 5 4 7 8 2
    2 must be last, because Pig has just explained that the panels were scrambled, so rat is asking if they are correct now

    SherlockWatson’s panel order is correct:

    The punchline is the family circus bubble. There can’t be any question about that.
    There is only one proper order for this strip.
    61358247 (as said by AL, or, using Sherlocks’ alternative notation 26374185).
    That’s that.

    What a strange super power for Mr Patis to have, the ability to make people try to figure out how exactly his strip is supposedly aligned, when it deliberately is left open enough for many answers…

    Patis please watch kickass before you put on a costume.

    I also came up with A L’s order:

    What happened to YOU?
    Jeffy beat me up!
    The Family Circus kid?
    Why? I don’t know — he just kept saying..
    Don’t @#$% with us…

    He SAID that? Yeah, and then he tore up the strip.
    Is it in order now?
    I did the best I could.

    Where is he now?
    I dunno…. he ran off to ask his Mommy….
    And the Family Circus knock-off is the punchline.

    It can’t start with Rat asking if the panels are in order before he knows they’re torn!
    Or are you numbering a different way, Sherlock?

    I think it’s funny in a bizarre way ; the foul language Jeffery is useing.
    This will be a classic.

    It is not my wish to be fulsome, Mr Holmes, but “I covet your skull.”
