    Even if you can (probably) use it – a word like “boringest” makes my brain turn off :(

    Mmm. Lots of guys have ties that are at least 40, that they never bothered to get rid of…..“my lucky tie”, e.g. Now, if one is often seen WEARING the ties to his job, then……………

    I like the reruns!! Could be that they still strike me as “being funny”. I grew up under constant exposure to reruns on TV……this sort of programming (cue in “oh, here comes Darth Vader right now…SHUDDER!!” music here) was considered “part of the plan” while the media folks got R &R, negotiated with sponsors, planned new episodes of a series that looked like it could flourish for another season, negotiated with the often ever-swelling heads of “the players” (oh, it’s TO LAUGH!!) and monitored the rises and fall of their competition on other networks…….and stuff-like-that-there, as ’ol Huck Hound used to say!Nice that so much of the stuff remained funny even after ummm, eleventy-seven or so viewings….often over the course of many years! Haw! Snicker! Laugh! Chortle! Glee, mirth aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand MERRIMMENT!!!!!

    Mr. Lincoln Peirce, if Nate’s personality is kind of autobiographical, then how did you come up with the idea of Teddy and Francis?

    Chad,Chad,Chad. Hes probably a million years old. Then again, he was born during the hochline epoch, whatever THAT means. That’s next strip. Calling it.

    Why do some complain about comic reruns? Everyone needs a break now and then.

    Yes, this week will feature reruns of earlier strips. But it has nothing to do with me not feeling 100%. I get two weeks of vacation each year. I used the first one back in January, when I was doing the strips for April — that’s why this is a rerun week. I will probably take the other week in July, which means that there will be a week of reruns in October.

    I get it but remember everyone needs vacation. We’ll survive the week I’m sure. :)

    Back in the late ‘50s, Dallas had a school superintendent who was Jim Crow’s best friend – all deliberate and no speed. Someone suggested he should be well past retirement age and that might bring the system into the 20th century. A friend said, “That won’t work; back when he was born, they didn’t have birth certificates, but just wrote the details in the family Bible – and Sherman burned it.”

    You’ll have to settle for happy birthday wishes from your friends and family, I’m afraid. I never respond to appeals like this to include personal greetings in strips, because there are too many of them.
