Mrs. Olsen: She's taking a perfectly good holiday and rendering it juvenile.
Frazz: I say she's taking a perfectly juvenile holiday...back.
I can’t see Mrs. Olsen saying that…
Being a juvenile, she is expressing it to her satisfaction.
At least we know what’s under the wrapping.
It began over 2000 years ago…………ask the Celts……..
Is Halloween an actual holiday in the U.S., as in schools and some workers get the day off? And would that have anything to do with what is meant by the “take it back” punchline? “Take it back” from what, exactly?
Halloween is not a federal holiday and it has been taken over by the adults as a rival to Mardi Gras excess.
Halloween is one of my favorite holiday…I enjoy how it has spread to adults…I’ve been an antique radio, that actually played, (The were broadcasting War of the Worlds…It was cool)…I was also a hockey puck, a Cooper of course, The Ace of Hearts, a rocket, and a Goon with a neck that could extend up to ten feet high….I used that one twice……
Not sure what was going on in my neighborhood, but it was noisy. The adults here seemed to celebrate with loud, window rattling “BOOM” firecrackers, followed some hours later by loud, nasty fighting. Usually people around that side of the street manage to do their alcohol-based celebrations (which ALL of them are) without the fighting, so…. hmmm…. New tradition? (Blech!)
This how you got your start Mallett.
“Samhain! Hope and pray,all ye meet are the gentle Fey.”
Hope we see Caufield’s costume tomorrow, as a Lit major that story-line is always one of the highlights of my “Frazz year”
I’m old, and Halloween is the only holiday I actually like. For the most part, the others are boring and meaningless.
Note regarding BigPuma. Someone whose posts he actually reads please tell him that kids are infatuated with bathroom humor and this strip is about kids.
Why don’t you bike obey to Lake Michigan and do what you suggested to NightGaunt that he so at the Gulf.
And tell him that Gaunt owns him and everyone but Puma knows it.
I pity people who think that the only way to make their own candle shine brighter is by trying to blow everyone else’s out. Just a personal observation.
At first I thought it was part of the mummy’s wrapping. Then I realized it was the old “toilet paper stuck to your heel as you exit the restroom” sight gag.
