    Didn’t last though, did it?

    Notice that this strip does something very unusual for a comic strip: the continuity of the daily strip is extended into the Sunday. Usually this isn’t done because the Sunday has to be drawn a longer time in advance so it can be colorized by the syndicate; Watterson was one of the few to do this, perhaps because he did his own colors. Also, a lot of people only read the daily (or the Sunday) strip, so it might not work to combine the continuities in this way. But here it works, because neither the Sunday nor the dailies are crucial to understanding the other.

    Ah, the steel dashboard. We had a 1950 Ford two-door sedan. To get into the back seat, you had to flip the front seat forward, and there was no safety latch or anything to keep the seat from flipping forward. Once my mother had to brake hard. I was in the back, and I hit the seat back in front of me, flipped it forward and put a dent in the steel dashboard with my head. I said, “Ow! Mom, I hurt my head!” She said, “Well, you shouldn’t have been fooling around back there.”

    What I especially like here is that there is no gag at all — rare for a Peanuts strip. It’s just a glance into a character who, though she came late to the strip, became iconic. As a fiction writer myself, I love how characters can come front and center this way — especially ones as strong-willed as Peppermint Patty.

    I feel Big Bang Theory accurately portrays nerds. Jane’s world, and in particular Jane herself, looks like gay people I’ve known — insecure, living in a world that is less hostile than ever but still one in which you don’t proclaim yourself, neurotic and funny.

    The wife you shave may be your own.

    Dude, your h looks like an n. I thought you were talking about Old Norse, in which case the answer would be “Nei.”

    No, that’s a rat hat. And poorly made, even by rat hat standards.

    Mutt got two wives? Why does she look so different here? http://www.gocomics.com/muttandjeff/2015/06/18

    McCoy certainly speaks to the issues here, brings up specific things to criticize the president for. There are plenty of things he could actually complain about. Things like reducing the number of people without health insurance, restoring the economy, killing bin Laden, and resurrecting respect for America throughout the world. He’s the best president of my lifetime and a silly ad hominem attack has no effect on his legacy.
