    This reminds me of the episode of “Friends” where Chandler confronted his boss about his habitual atta-boy butt-pats, only to feel left out when the rest of his team got one and he didn’t.

    That has to be a world-record length for an elephant’s trunk.

    I see the “don’t go there” problem with this, but my mind went to the much more benign:

    If that’s his dresser and his shirt, he should be able to hang it there if he wants to. He should be telling her “can you get your perfume bottle of the dresser? It drives me crazy”

    Could it be that is dressed like a refugee from the sixties because she has actually been enrolled that long? Let’s see, that would make her in her late 60’s. Nope, she looks too old to be in college, but not that old.

    For me, the key for this comic making sense is not that we see an analogy, but Ms Oleson sees it AND accepts it. Her premise was that running and shoveling are very similar activities (you get a lot of exercise) She has to agree that while she really likes bingo, and really dislikes board meetings, they are very similar activities in some respect.

    I think you are spot-on in the joke’s intent. I still contend that it is somewhat tenuous because it describes bingo/board meetings as Frazz sees them (groups of people seated for a long time NOT exercising) and not in a manner that Ms. Oleson would readily view them.

    For the others that attempted to help me “understand”, I think you merely re-worded (probably for the better) my point that "Frazz implies that their feelings for running (and shoveling) are the same as Olsen’s for bingo (and board meetings). " I understood that part of Frazz’s analogy already.

    Mrs. Olsen equates shoveling with running since both are exercise. Got it.
    Mrs. Olsen prefers bingo to school board meetings. Got it.
    Frazz implies that their feelings for running (and shoveling) are the same as Olsen’s for bingo (and board meetings). Got it.
    They are analogous because…? Don’t got it
    Shoveling substitutes for running because the main objective of running (in Olsen’s mind) is exercise. How is the board meeting supposed to be a substitute for bingo?. Frazz could have just as easily said “it’s like missing bingo to go get a root canal, or missing bingo to volunteer to get your face shot with a shot-gun”.

    I think most people have boiled this down to Goat condemning professional football in general. I think Goat’s main contention wasn’t with watching the game, or even having a rooting interest. I think it was the phase “my team”. Calling out people who say “we” when referring to a professional sports team is a time-honored tradition.

    The Big Nate books (with stories) are better than the comics.

    You do realize that Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda samples the quote from the Sir Mix-A-Lot song (which predates it by over 25 years), right?
