    This one caught me off guard. I felt for certain the last panel would be a yellow sticky on a sleeping Sluggo on the couch.

    I like Phil – I hope he gets to stick around.

    I don’t blame Phil one bit. Will Phil be taking Aunt Fritzi out on dates once in a while (I mean, in a way I can show my son)? Or maybe they could have a regular “meet up day” at the food pantry?

    Oh, no! What might seem like “lame to pathetic” punchlines to an adult are perfect for my niece and son (after suitable parental review of course). Maybe GoComics could “tag” the Nancy-based comics so you could skip them.

    Trust me – if you were running around after an eight-year-old all day YOU"D look half-baked all the time as well.

    (Plus, it’s a cartoonist’s thing – see Andy Capp’s side-long glance)

    Sluggo would be just old enough to appreciate some of Heinlein’s “juveniles”. My son will need to wait a few years before he’s ready (but it doesn’t stop me from boring him with stories of MY reading them during the summer as a lad).

    This gag was actually first done in the 70’s (but I won’t tell)

    Wow! It’s a good think I screen these comments before showing them to my son. The “hidden” punchline is that Nancy probably lost the remote much like my son does on a regular basis.

    To keep the meter the final line should be “Man, I’m SO tired of that song”.

    Ms. King – actually, the strip was originally about Aunt Fritz. It was called “Ritzy Fritz” and ran a few years before she adopted Nancy. To give you an idea about how long ago that was the strip’s conceit was that “Ritzy” was a “flapper”.

    It’s fun how this strip works on multiple levels. My son would sympathize with Nancy not wanting to have to tell the whole truth about schoolwork and I, alas, would be one of the “droolers”.
