    Don’t forget, Val’s husband almost died in a motorcycle accident, not long ago.

    Is this a subtle nod to “Pearls Before Swine”, that Wiz turned them into Rat and Pig?

    I don’t think they had a Rita balloon, although that would be awesome. This comic probably doesn’t have quite a high enough pop cultural profile to get a Macy’s balloon. I’d be delighted for John and Scott if it did, though. Perhaps there’s a bit of a dream being expressed here?

    Wow, a wired landline phone with a rotary dial? I didn’t think this strip was that old.

    Times were definitely different back then. I thought the strip was really funny, but then I started thinking how sensitive people are about leaving kids in cars nowadays, and how some kids have died and their parent convicted of murder, and it’s been all over the news every time it happens.

    I don’t get this strip half the time. I’m not sure why I’m still reading it, actually. I guess it feels like the satisfaction of solving a puzzle if I keep studying it and I occasionally finally get it after staring at it for 30 seconds or so. I don’t think I would have solved this one without the answer in the comments. I’ve never heard of a cat presenting a leaf to its owner. Humor is funny because it rings true. To me, this one kind of doesn’t.

    “Artificial intelligence” may be a bit of a misnomer. Computers already have a form of “intelligence”. What’s really interesting to research and develop is self-awareness. Is it possible to build a computer so complex that it becomes self-aware? Why would we want to build a self-aware computer? Well, the sentience could emerge gradually as we develop programs that can adapt in real-time and solve problems like a human. So far, computers and robots are quite “stupid” when it comes to common sense reactions to the environment. The new self-driving cars are a step forward. That’s an example of an application of more advanced computer programs that could theoretically eventually become self-aware. The robot in this strip already fits the bill.

    There’s actually a verse in the “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” song where they mention the exceptions to the “…ly” rule, as I recall.
