    Some people weren’t meant to be parents.

    Are you kidding, Rick? $100? Have you seen the price of cigarettes lately?

    Just so I’m clear: Jeff did something nice for his father without even being asked, right? He’s arranged for Rick to earn money (no matter how small a sum) for doing something Rick’s already doing, for free, anyway, right?

    That doesn’t seem to be how GBT is presenting it, though. In the last panel, it’s as though Rick is Zonker and Jeff is Zipper, the former is basically humoring the latter. It must just be me.

    Afford to smoke again. Damn. I’m triggered. And after twenty yeas, I hadn’t felt the craving for nearly a day until seeing this…

    I’m a total boomer about Substack. Why would people pay to read a blog there when they wouldn’t somewhere else?

    I respect that after 13 years as a blogger, Rick still puts on a tie. I lost the tie two days into working from home in March 2020 and even now only wear one as needed rather than as a regular part of the daily uniform.

    Bravo Jeff!!! Let’s hope Rick will finally returns to feel the joy of earning a living from the job he likes.

    Rick, there are a WHOLE LOT of people who wouldn’t think of $100 a month as “no money.”

    If it means that little to you, give it to charity.

    Mark Twain was an original American influencer. I would pay to follow his blog if he had one.

    Sigh… So few appearances by characters and since Trudeau is aging them we can all feel our own aging. Really don’t like the drawing of Rick’s beard/hair, he almost looks shaggy.

    Jeff’s parents are letting their late-20’s something son live at home indefinitely. I’d say they’ve done him a solid, as well.

    Why do men age better than women… in cartoons and in reality? On second thought, Joanie looks great for a great-grandmother! How old is she now?

    $100 a month to get cancer? Are you a moron, Rick?
