Y’know, there’s a very good reason why—with the exception of an occasional “Garfield” or “Marvin”—comic strips do not as a rule run extended story arcs in which their main character is featured as Ed is here. Thank you, Mr. Batiuk, for reminding us all of that reason…it’s not funny.
“First world problems” ….. NOT!!!
Like JPuzzleWhiz explained yesterday for doing Sudoku, there is a way to do that, Ed, But it is too complicated for you!
Funny how the story is far more focused this week than last, when the strip went all over the place.
Where’s some white-out! I made a mistake on my Jumble puzzle and need to erase the entries.
As silly as this arc seems, I agree that there really is nothing like a printed newspaper. Too bad they are going the way of the dinosaur.
Do like I do, work the Jumble on a Kindle Fire. That and the comics I follow on GoComics are an integral part of my breakfast routine.
I’ll never understand how some guys can spend hours sitting on a toilet reading a newspaper or anything else. I take care of my business 1, 2, 3 then that’s it. I’m out!
It’s hard when you can’t read stuff on your phone.
Newspapers were very useful. They had the news, weather, stocks, comics, coupons, theaters and TV listings s well as many other things. And when done, make hats, line bottom of bird cages, wrap garbage, and so on. What do people use now?
So can we look forward to him dropping the phone in the toilet tomorrow and ending this finally?
I don’t know Ed, how about taping on the squares? A keyboard might come up.
Who is he talking to?
“Fill the Jumble?” There’s an app for that.
Sigh. Knowing Ed, he could be in the bathroom all next week.
All newspapers are going to online. Supposedly can’t get carriers.
Hey, remember, Ed used to be illiterate. Now he can even do the Jumble!
wait for it. The splash is coming.
