    She brushes her teeth every day. That can go a long way to protect from eating sweets everyday. Or so I heard. As for the latter, she probably exercises, and lately Vitamin has been giving her quite a workout.

    What I don’t get about this strip is the conversation in the last panel. Sure the last line is funny, but what does not liking men with gray hair have to do with finding them out and getting her hooks in to Silver for a bigger fee?

    I actually have my own little explanations for a lot of the “discrepancies” that have happened over the years from different Tracy writers. Not Mumbles’ return by Collins. Collins did provide an explanation that fit. It was improbable, but it did fit. My explanations (which I may post on the yahoo boards someday) would be for Pruneface’s return, what happened to Toby Townley’s first husband and child, Kilian’s Mumbles story (which I enjoyed, despite it playing havoc with past continuities), Bonnie’s age during the Kilian years, and even how Nellie could still be the same age she was since her debut, despite debuting before the birth of Sparkle Plenty who’s now an adult.

    In contrast, I’m not interested in trying to come up with explanations for discrepancies for any contradictions in the Rogues Galleries. To my mind these are speculations that at least some of them are inaccurate, and so can be safely ignored.

    I’d just like to make a point about the Rouges Gallery profile on Mindy/Glenna.
    I suspect that the part about being in a Mexican jail for drug running was probably not in the original story or ever referred to outside of this Rogues Gallery. If that’s the case, it shouldn’t be considered Canon unless Curtis confirms it within a story.
    The reason why it shouldn’t be considered Canon is because these Galleries weren’t always accurate. The biggest error I know of is the one on Junky Doolb, which claimed he received a life sentence. No, he didn’t, although he did spend the rest of his life in jail…which amounted to a day. Shortly after Junky was caught, his lawyer, Jerome Trohs, slipped him an empty gun, and, thinking the gun was loaded (which is what Trohs wanted him to think), Junky tried to make a jailbreak only to be shot to death by Tracy and another policeman. One of the bullets even went through Junky’s skull, which should be the final nail in that coffin.
    I remember there was a bit of a mild controversy when Curtis brought back the Mushroom Lady since a Rogues Gallery claimed she “died in prison”, but as Junky’s example shows, those Galleries aren’t always accurate, While nothing says Mindy/Glenna didn’t spend time in a Mexican jail for drug running, it shouldn’t be regarded as Canon unless Curtis (or any of his successors) confirms it within a story.

    Maybe she’s worried Vitamin will wear her out.

    Are…are they implying what I think they’re implying?!?

    As I recall (and I have to recall by memory, so my details are a bit fuzzy) Blowtop returned for Max Allan Collins’ 50th Anniversary story where at first, it seemed like he reformed along with the other crooks Sydney Phillips mentioned, but in the end, it turned out he was in league with Angeltop and the Brow’s Son in Lizz’s kidnapping. All three crooks were caught.
    ^
    Blowtop turned up again a few years later, where he was once again in league with Angeltop, who was now working with Shaky’s niece Quiver Trembly and Pruneface’s granddaughter Prunela. But Blowtop chickened out early in the story, confessing to his involvement when Sam confronted him. At the end of the story, Angeltop blew herself up in a futile attempt to take Tracy with her, while Quiver and Prunela were caught.
    ^
    Quiver hasn’t been seen since then, Prunela later turned up only to commit suicide when her grandfather Pruneface died in a story by Collins’ successor Mike Kilian, while Blowtop hadn’t been seen since then until today.

    And Blowtop, too!

    I find nothing unusual about Kandikane and Vitamin falling in love. Vitamin’s first wife, Snowflake Falls looked to be about as younger to Vitamin as Kandikane looks here. Clearly, the old gent has charm and charisma that transcends his age.
    ^
    Could somebody provide an image of Snowflake Falls here? Vitamin looked exactly the same then that he does now.

    You mean if you’re lucky she’ll get killed off. Stop acting like you speak for everybody when it’s already obvious you don’t.

    Wow. How do you do these so fast? I mean some of it you could’ve thought up during the week, but Lizz’s major role, which wasn’t obvious until this strip, fits right in here, just a couple of minutes after today’s strip has been posted. Awesome.
