    Or, “I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”

    Anything said for the first time was “made up” by someone. It’s the attribution that’s messed up, not the saying. Not very well conceived dialogue.
    Thankfully, I’ll say that today’s (mostly) excellent comments have made up for a particularly poorly written strip.

    I recommend an instant-read thermometer. Until you develop a feel for gauging doneness by touch and appearance, a good thermometer can be a real help. Also, get THICK steaks. Thin ones are harder to get just right.

    It’s not worth arguing about (and I do appreciate your reply), but if you click back through a week’s worth of strips you’ll find sentence fragments all over the place. And they’re all punctuated.

    I don’t consider Frazz to be a relatable or likable character. I would be more inclined to like someone who might throw that out as a question. As it is, it comes off (TO ME) as a wiseacre providing an instantaneous, indisputable, brilliant, and final answer.

    In short, I’m partial to folks who aren’t quite so sure of themselves.

    I absolutely cannot multi-task, so I never try. So aware am I of my inability, I make rules: At cookouts, I banish everyone who wants to hang around and talk to me grill-side. Otherwise, I get distracted by the conversation and end up with a mix of steaks that are practically raw, burnt to a crisp, and every temperature in between.

    Why is there punctuation for every balloon except for Frazz’s? (Please, no one tell me that it’s because it’s a sentence fragment.) Shouldn’t there be a question mark at the end? Poor punctuation mixed with certitude. Not good.

    When I took a peek at today’s strip, my interest was piqued by the mention of the volcano’s peak, and the students’ interest peaking, perhaps, too soon. Displeased by RR and, in a fit of pique, I put on my piqué golf shirt and hit the turnpike.

    Good one! I meant to say, “Try to make some sense,” but Steve Martin was whispering in my ear.
