    Well, it DOES waste trees, besides…very very very old trees….OK, not trees as we think of them now…but their tiny predecessors….squished into oil a long time ago….and in a very limited amount.

    But I can’t make out the reference here either. Maybe the desk is wood?

    Paper towels are made of wood.

    I got interested in the word Whig.

    In U.S. political terms they’re now Republicans.

    The word “whig” is a contraction of the Scottish word whiggamore meaning “mare driver.”

    In broad terms the Scottish Whigs were rebels against the English crown in the 17th centuy. (Broad terms used because it would be a mare’s nest to go into detail.)

    Not only does the spill require paper towels to clean up, her desk has a stack of student papers on it; the bottom ones will get wet/ruined when the coffee spill reaches them.

    Not sure why people are bringing up Tippycanoe, because it has nothing to do with today’s strip. And you’re confusing people further down trying to make a connection where there is none. It’s already been explained, and I seriously can’t see why you would jump to the conclusion that this has to do with something 130 years old, when it’s it’s so mindnumbingly obvious the wood is in the paper towel.

    Any given container will seem to generate three times its volume in liquid when you spill it on something important.

    A) She can put a lid on her drink to prevent spills.B) You can use an absorbent rag (e.g. ShamWow) to clean it up if you don’t want to use paper towels.

    I think Varnes is taking off from “tippy”.Trees are also lost to wells in forest areas.

    Nothing ruins a joke (even a bad pun) like having to explain it. Okay, first off all, it’s Tippecanoe, and no, it has nothing to do with today’s strip. But “tippy” is not a commonly used word, and to some minds (mine and varnes, at minimum) the pun just suggests itself. The Tippecanoe reference is solely for the enjoyment(?) of the pun itself. (There is a kid’s festival here called “Whirligig”; while describing it to a friend I, for some reason spoonerized it and called it “Girly Wig”. She immediately replied, “Oh, a merkin”. I loved that she came up with the pun, she loved that I got it (and no, I’m not going to define it for you if you don’t know it. Oh wait, is that me gloating about being smarter than someone else? No, but I’m sure someone is capable of reading it the way.)
