Boy: Frazz, how much faster do you swim with a swim cap on? Frazz: Studying aero/hydrodynamics, I gather? Boy: I'm assuming you pull it down over those ears.
All depends on how fast he can wiggle ’em.
The second panel borders cracked me up.
Those aren’t ears, they’re hydroplanes.
It explains why Frazz never wins any swimming competition
Frazz usually has an answer for shots like that. But not today. Maybe tomorrow?
Imaginative artwork in the center frame.
without a swim cap Frazz looks like a taxi cab going down the street with it’s doors open. (at least that is what my swim coach told me when I was a kid) I used mine like hydrofoils.
I thought Frazz used his ears as flippers… or rudders.
You know, I was actually about to mention that. Why do the kids in this strip always point when they talk?
Give Frazz a feather, and he’ll fly through the water!
I’m using my spare time for the absolute pleasure of reading Frazz from the beginning. Jef didn’t draw him with big ears in 2001. Taking a look back confirms my (and many others’) initial reaction: Jef is the best and most creative cartoonist ever.
Sorry, my friend. You seem to have totally missed the point of my post. I’ll just leave it at that.
