    Well, one I know for sure is Them!, starring James Arness and James Whitmore …

    Yes, words do have power. And to get out of trouble, bad actors will pay big bucks to people who are good at using them. Think oil companies explaining away their ecological disasters, or their hinky relationships with shady governments.

    Frazz was right, kid. And you may have a future as a PR flack or a media adviser on a political campaign.

    A favorite childhood memory is being delivered, along with my two kid brothers, to the local public library to do a little browsing and borrowing. Mom would find some fiction for herself and I’d find … whatever — which was the sweetest part. All about discovery.

    Really, really miss the sound of that machine that would stamp the card with the return date. KaTHUNK! Beautiful.

    Thanks, Mr. Mallett. This strip is a hundred times more pleasing when it celebrates the joys of LEARNING instead of showing obnoxious brats all puffed up with what they already know. More, please, like this one.

    Football season! Yes! Tens of millions of Americans LOVE late August because it means the start of football for high schools, colleges, youth programs. Thing is, Mallett HATES football, and finds its fans to be detestable imbeciles. More than once, he’s referred to the game as “a waste of time”, and that’s the point of the strip. Mr. Dismissive, dismissing.
    Strap yourself in! You’re soon to be treated to a bunch of strips in which Hacker is an incompetent loser; his team stinks; night games cause light pollution; the players aren’t as fit as runners; fathers ignore their families to watch games on TV. Anyone who has anything to do with the game, including ticket-takers and hot dog vendors, will be vilified.
    That’s “Frazz” in late summer.

    “Naivety”? Seriously? What’s going on with him is the opposite.

    Despite being a little kid, he has this world-weary attitude, whereby he knows all there is to know. It makes him view everything with a jaundiced eye. He “knows” that construction workers are dummies who are easily tricked. And if one of them isn’t, he can be bought off with treats, like a poorly disciplined guard dog. He knows his place in the world. And he’s knows he’s better than the mopes he’s about to make fools of. Because he’s smart and they’re fat, lazy, and dumb.

    That’s the way this strip works. Have you not been paying attention?

    Oh, just playing along. And trying to see if there are any opera lovers out here …

    So Luciano Pavarotti’s wife wasn’t into men? And if she had been, he’d have turned into Nikolai Ghiaurov?

    The smartest guy in the world, the guy who’s practically a mind-reader, has to be told why an eight year-old is lugging a dozen doughnuts and a gallon of coffee to a construction site? When he’s already been told the nature of the ruse?
    Yeah, right.

    Oh, no! I love Louis C.K. and Amy Schumer. If Mallett does, too, then I have to rethink … well, my entire life …

    “Doesn’t seem that strong …” Didn’t I say that it’s impossible to tell? But you can’t leave things alone for long, can you?

    I’d point out that you don’t know your a** from a hole in the ground, but that borders on the scatological. And in any event, it’s a fact well known already by everyone here.
