    Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how invested and devoted people can become to FICTIONAL characters. The the mission of a storyteller is to capture your imagination and cause you to connect with the story’s characters, whether you grow to love, hate, or even be indifferent to them; the mark of an accomplished story teller is how successfully they grab and, more importantly, keep your attention. This excerpt from Jimmy Johnson’s Wikipedia bio sums up the subject of sexual innuendo in this strip, for which Johnson is well-known (no innuendos intended ;-) : "In his comic strip about a small family, Johnson, the former reporter and editorial cartoonist, presents political and social commentary through his characters. Of course humor is also integral, and Johnson writes ‘jokes about many different subjects, not unlike stand-up comedians do.’ Much of the strip’s content is grounded in ‘Arlo and Janis’ love and continued desire for each other.’ Johnson’s signature style is notable for undeniable sexual suggestiveness, so much so that ‘The Arlo Award’ is awarded to “Cartoonists Who Slip One by the Syndicate’s Censors.’”

    I can’t help but wonder if Piro might swing the other way.

    @ Dr McCoy – Thumbs up!

    @ Varnes ~ Janis doesn’t want to be associated with Arlo’s prank, which explains her speed walking away from the scene.

    I’m still thinking maybe Piro swings the other way.

    Um, for heaven’s sake people, Nate is 11 years old! Crushes, girlfriends, break-ups, and hanging out with someone new are all par for the course at that age. “Going steady” can wait for another 4 or 5 years. As I see it, Nate has learned an important lesson from his brief relationship with Trudy – that someone who loves you doesn’t demand that you lose yourself and your friends to be in that relationship. Maybe Trudy learned that a relationship isn’t all about what she wants. Live and learn.

    Maybe Piro’s simply not interested in females.

    Not sure if anyone else has noted this, but since Quill will already be in NYC, Luann would only have had to buy (RT) tickets for herself to fly there to visit with him.

    When I was a child, all men wore hats. They tipped them at ladies and took them off when entering a house or church out of respect. I’ve always thought men look more suave and debonair in a hat (a baseball cap isn’t a hat), especially in a fedora, and have long wished that the trend would make a lasting return. Another reason I hope for their return is that it might mean that men have become more respectful again as well.

    In my family, we are helpless against the comedy of slapstick. Of course, the hapless victim is always tended to and comforted after the hysterics die down. It’s not generally appreciated while the helpful relative is howling with laughter and tears running down their face. :-D
