how manipulative of you, Lucy
Proving Lucy is somewhat evil.
Don’t you see CB? She wants your attention.
“I ought to sock you a good one!” Seeing her facial expression, the beatdown will result in either paralysis or death.
Later on Linus will plead with Lucy in the same way, but not as a joke.
Your contentment did not last long, did it Charlie Brown?
The first two panels remind me of a bumper sticker I once saw: “I’m having a great day; watch some ******* come along and ruin it!”
Same thing happens in the political arena, sometimes…
Lucy is in training for middle management, I see.
so the peanut gang is playing ‘grown-up’ – Lucy is a supposed political journalist and/or social media CEO – she has learned how to twist and hype a situation with words and NO FACTS and Charlie represents the hated person (or person’s point of view) and is going to be the victim. and Patty will be the general public doing their tweeter/faceplant response of our culture to the false/twisted information given out by the political “journalists” and social media gurus! Who knew Shulz was such a great social prophet???
I must say, even though I was not ever a true Lucy fan, I do think she is funnier and much more bearable in her older years than here. Lucy is crabby, bossy, selfish, a brat, but I actually enjoy her later moments than her older ones. I think in these early strips, she is just too much.
What a pill!!
Are these the true colors from the original strip? Lucy’s usual dress used to be yellow and CB’s zigzag shirt was red?
Future Oregon protestor.
That little bitty girl saying “Don’t run roughshod over me, Charlie Brown” always cracks me up.
Know someone who was exactly like this. Still is.
Sniff ah the good old Days…
