Frazz by Jef Mallett for May 15, 2016
Frazz: It's actually named for Maia, the greek counter-part of the Roman goddess of fertility, Bona Dea. Though the poet ovid suggests it comes from "maiores", latin for "elders," paired with June, after the latin "luniores", ie,, juniors. So you can take your pick where May gets its name. Girl: I'm sticking with "May be nice, May be yucky." Frazz: That works, too.
