“Burritos.” There used to be this place called “Speedy Gonzales” around My neck of the woods, that made the BEST Burritos EVER. Burritos Stuffed with REAL GROUND BEEF, Cheese, Onions and Jalapeno Peppers so hot, it felt as though someone had stuck a roadside flare to your tongue. OUTSTANDING! Naturally the joint went out of business years ago, but BOY what a Burrito!
But I Digress. Two things here:
1) With today’s Superman reference, it appears that Mr. Evans is acknowledging Jack’s resemblance to the late Christopher Reeve of the late 1970s Superman fame.
2) Luann getting Jack to carry her books home from school harkens back to the Olden Days when (Supposedly) guys did that to impress girls they had a crush on. Yeah, Luann is slyly “conning” him into it, but to Me that indicates she likes his company and wants him to stick around.
Jack appears to get better looking with each passing Strip and more importantly, he’s playing it cool when it comes to Luann and not fawning and slobbering all over her. He’s doing everything right. There’s a couple of guys in this Strip that could learn a thing or two from him.
And It’s Great to see a “Nice Guy/Everyman” WIN in this Strip for a change. Sadly, the last one was Brad……,
