    Yeah, that’s a little challenging for an eight year old. Nancy has the right approach.

    x=the square root of 3/5, y is twice the square root of 3/5.

    I was never any good at solving for two unknowns, but we didn’t get those math problems till high school…

    1. Art

    2. Humor


    This is always a strip with two unknowns.

    Jaimes over Bushmiller again today. For the record, I’m not saying the OJ is fit to hold Ernie Bushmiller’s ink pen, but we tend to lionize the past. There were, for example, hundreds of meh Tonight Show episodes with Johnny Carson as host. Someone puts together a “best of” special and it becomes easy forget how hard it is to bring the funny every day.

    Nancy is a bit young to be expected to solve those equations.

    I personally do not enjoy the “new Nancy” comic strip. Ernie’s depiction was exponentially more enjoyable. Sorry it is no longer on my “must read” list.

    x= the Square root of 3/5 = .77459You can solve for y.

    ooo…Notice how OJ snuck both 3 and 16-4 (usually seen on the whiteboard) onto the problem statement!

    Are we going to start seeing 3/5 of a rock?

    I am a Guy fan and am not fond of OJ’s humor, or lack thereof. (Why do I torture myself like this?) But I am mature enough to admit that this was really funny. (Maybe that’s why. One never knows)

    “Neither of us could find a partner” is a great punchline.

    Today’s comic is just Olivia’s way of getting you math nerds to do her kid’s homework ;)

    I never thought the old “Nancy” was funny. Even in the 1960s it seemed tired. I love the updated strip.

    Seems a bit circular.

    @WMCRAFT: If you think the posters here take the ‘toon seriously, check in at ’Luann’. I think they’re up to 222 comments today…

    So for drawing adults we’ve gone from “hot” Fritzi to the wicked witch of the west teaching kids.
