    P.S. I have never seen “The Wire” and don’t know anything about the names used for the dogs…

    Hey, wait a sec… Jay Glibenski was born the same year as me (1952). I’m no where near ready to have an obituary published, whether in the comics or elsewhere (though there is some appeal to perhaps having it placed in the comics). I think the various dog names (Bunk, Lester, McNulty, and Stringer Bell) also show some promise of future use, somewhere (but probably not by me). I particularly like “Stringer Bell”.

    I was lucky enough to retire a number of years back, before the recent pay freezes. I do recall there was at least a 2 year freeze at one point, and I specifically remember our local Congress person (Republican of course) specifically advocating for a 5 year Federal pay freeze. I hope that never happened – I haven’t bothered to keep track of these things anymore.

    My understanding is that Rita ‘s metric for determining performance is how many mistakes the employee makes in their work. Since Ed basically doesn’t do any work in the first place, he doesn’t make any mistakes. That could well be the same reason that Wally manages to be as successful as he is at the company in the “Dilbert”.

    Sure there is junk, but there is plenty of decent stuff too. One just has to know the prices. As a rule the dollar stores are great for the mundane (soup, dog poop pick-up bags, toiletries) and much less expensive, but often items can be found cheaper when on sale at a mainstream store. If it’s stuff one might normally buy anyway, we should be aware of the typical price range.

    I don’t care what anyone else thinks, I think Rita looks pretty darn good in the gold bikini. Some may make comments about her age etc. relative to this, but she is only in her 40’s, and that’s at least 15 years younger than me. So I think she looks quite fine.
    By the way, Darth Maul is Norman. Definitely not Sal and very unlikely to be Herbie (note the nose).
    I agree that Roy and Kathy are Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.

    Melvin makes a perfect Orangutan! He already has the orange hair and the build. Jay, probably a Proboscis Monkey, doesn’t look too happy. I’m guessing the Spider Monkey is Carolina.

    That’s the happiest I’ve ever seen Will! I certainly can relate to his feelings here…

    Appropriate, since when I was junior high age (mid-1960’s) a “Melvin” was what now is called a “wedgie”. I don’t think I even heard the term “wedgie” until the 1980’s, but I certainly knew what a “melvin” was (not sure if it’s capitalized or not!). Fortunately I was a big kid and never had the dubious honor of the experience.

    I remember as a kid in the 1960’s visiting Disneyland, and my Grandfather mentioning this in reference to the gift stands near the exits: “They try to squeeze every last nickel out of you!”
