    That’s not a dum-dum. To make a dum-dum you take a saw and notch the slug so it spreads on impact.

    The metaphors don’t quite stand up here. Mr. Butts, Mr. Brewski, and Juuly represent methods for people to, in effect, kill themselves. Dum-Dum represents a method for people to kill other people (and themselves). The new guy is killing people all on his own. No one’s deliberately imbibing him like a drug, no one’s deliberately aiming him like a gun, and it’s impossible to outlaw him. However, it’s just a strip, I should really just relax. ;-)

    Trump Disciples celebrate all of them, especially the covid deaths.

    Every covid death is a step toward herd mentality.

    Let’s all pour out one for good ol’ Opi.

    Heard his family had to shell out a lot before his demise. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to after Opiod’s departure from the scene.

    I’m not sure this is gonna happen, but I’d love to see new daily Doonesbury strips. Flashbacks are good, but heck, there’s a lot goin’ on that could use a little bit more of Trudeau in the mix.

    Where’s Mr. Jay? I guess he won’t be a predator until RJ Reynolds gets involved. As long as it’s Zipper and Zonker making money, he’s fine.

    Panel Six, “way busy summer”. In Chicago/Cook County, a little over two percent of those who test positive for COVID-19 die while seventeen percent of those who test positive for Hi-Speed Lead die.

    Dum-Dum: You don’t belong here Covid – unlike us, you don’t have the Republicans working day and night to stop anything that gets in your way!

    Covid: Oh really? Are you sure about that?

    Covid should be welcome to the bar. I mean he is the reason people have a lot more time for all the others.

    “Comic” is a definite misnomer for today’s strip. It’s not wry. It’s not sarcastic. It’s just sad. But true.

    So appropriate to have “Dum-Dum” utter that line…they say ‘you can’t teach stupid’. Fact is, we really don’t need to.

    Presumably H, Crack, and the others aren’t in the bar because they’re illegal (even contracting Coronavirus isn’t in itself illegal). Yet if I’m not mistaken and frankly what are the odds of that, most illegal-drug-related deaths are, ultimately, a result of not using the drugs properly, i.e. overdoses, imbibing “impure” doses, dirty needles, overall ill health as a result of overuse, et cetera (these things would be much less problematic if such drugs were legal* and FDA-approved and included detailed instructions (in really large print) and other stuff like that there but never mind that right now). They’re not so much illegal because they’re dangerous as dangerous because they’re ILLEGAL.

    AFAIK there’s no healthy way to smoke cigarettes.===*also, if such drugs were legal, instances of addicts robbing and killing people to get money for their addiction would drop overwhelmingly because, again, the only reason that such drugs are so expensive (and thus require so much money) is because they’re ILLEGAL. I’ve never heard of an alcoholic mugging anyone for alcohol money because, if worse comes to worst, the alcoholic can just STEAL THE perfectly legal ALCOHOL which would be bad, sure, but better a petty thief than a mugger and perhaps murderer. I’m sure that cigarette addicts often find themselves stealing perfectly legal cigarettes but, again, if society’s getting bent out of shape about it, it’s news to me (which admittedly doesn’t mean nearly as much as it could). Not that I have any idea what I’m talking about, of course.

    For some reason, for me the most distressing part of this strip is the fact that Mr. Brewski smokes…

    If they could get away with it, he’d be saying “sup b!tches”. That’s my head-canon.
