    and the talking heads continue, while we get further and further away from the main plot and Gameboy…

    the only plot here is the one where they oughtta take this arc and throw it into…

    She needs to quit that high-falutin’ talk and get back to her Plenty roots.

    Good morning™, everybody!

    She’s looking quite beautiful in today’s strip. So, she’s an actor with a little experience, but I bet she never worked with a chicken co-star before.

    Interesting. I had to post 4 separate comments. When I first tried to post everything as one post word for word the same I got a banned word(s) message. Make zero sense (just like the strip)

    Got to admit I like the colouring of K, very reminiscent of 90’s Disney™️ Princess’.

    This story does have a wing (two in fact) but it doesn’t seem to have a prayer.

    The ‘boys’ in Vegas have asked me to consult the experts here for how to establish the odds. Apparently there are some high rollers wanting to bet on this. Which is more likely:

    A: Klinique and Chick are integral to the Gameboy story-line?

    B: Klinique and Chick are a teaser for the next story-line? (Without Gameboy)

    C: The insertion of Bob Oscar & family is comedy relief while writer works on block.

    Ahh. La gallina es simpática, no simpático. Perhaps a bit of Spanglish?

    I don’t know if you all have picked up on it yet, but B.O.‘s cousin Klinique is going to be in a commercial with his chicken. I know it was said really quickly and may have passed everyone by. It’s important to know. It must be important given the space has been devoted to it. It’s certainly taken up more space than a stakeout to catch… – what’s his name? – Oh yeah – Gameboy. When was that? Five or six days ago?

    Ray asked yesterday how many ways can it be said. Today we have another one. It’s a kind of thesaurus for story-telling. Shelley’s getting a lot of practice drawing the same thing different ways.

    Tomorrow: A sleepy Gertie goes out to the barnyard to begin that evening’s dinner and accidentally wrings Chick Tracy II’s neck. Which ironically, is how Chick Tracy I met its fate. Moral of the story – Let Gertie finish her coffee before she begins her chores.

    It just occurred to me — in panel 1, Klinique kind of resembles a young Julie Newmar.

    Another Take  12 months ago

    1- CLINIC ALLIE DEPRESSED: Me and the chicken do a ventril-a-qwist act – with a twist!

    2- The chicken does the tawkin and I’M THE DUMMY! But the only thing we can say right now is BAW BUCKKK! We’re workin’ on it though…

    DT: Might I suggest that you could definitely get a lot of bookings if you performed in the nude… slobber drool

    CLINIC ALLIE: Oh I jest couldn’t pluck Chick Tracy’s feathers, Mr. Gacy!

    SPACE CHICKEN: Yep. We’ll conquer this planet in no time. No time at all…

    If you take a close look,Klinique has aged greatly between panels one and two.

    This is part of the plot.Since Curtis took over,NO showbusinessevent has taken place without some sort of disaster butting in.

    Will the director be Da Mill(1976-77)?

    it’s 192, counting THIS one, but I want you to be sure there’s no room for error and count each and every one, one by one from start to finish and I want you to be sure without a doubt and don’t go by the counter at the top… if man set it, then it can prove to be faulty and make a mistake in the proper numbering, so it’s up to YOU to keep it all honest…

    we’re all COUNTING on you… ’(see what I did there?)

    provided that you CAN count past ONE… LMAO…

    It turns out Klinique has had some experience in making commercials, and although she looks a bit more mature today than she did yesterday (IMO), especially in panel 2, she could still be quite young (I have known at least one young teenaged model with a considerable professional portfolio already). She certainly seems enthusiastic about this gig and her partner in it, Chick Tracy II, with whom she seems to have hit it off. Tracy and B.O. cannot help but concur (panel 2)….
