    Am I the only one who was expecting a pun?

    I don’t think Phillip is all that perfect! After all, he spells his name with two L’s, where one is perfectly sufficient and etymologically more proper. Tooooot!

    Those who can, do.

    Those who can’t, kazoo.

    I just made that up but it has a nice ring to it, no? OK maybe a buzz.

    I wonder if he hired a tooter to teach him to play.

    As I read this I was trying to figure out the bad pun that was surely coming.

    Jojo was the name of one of the crocs in an earlier strip.

    Look on the bright side, Jojo. Someday that African nation will build an atom bomb and cause an international crisis that wipes out all life on earth. And boy won’t Phillip look foolish then!

    Beans, beans, the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot, the more you toot, the better you feel, – Let’s have beans for EVERY meal.(That always killed in fourth grade)

    I am totally against violins in comics. Kids may be reading these, so Pastis should not put violins in his strip. Pastis can stick that up his kazoo!

    Poor Jojo, all he wanted to do was toot his horn.

    I, too, was bracing myself for the pun. However, it was nowhere to be found. Perhaps Stephan is on to us as readers … ?

    I’m pretty sure 4.0 is the highest possible GPA.

    How touching that our dear departed Crocodilian Jojo has been memorialized by neighbor Bob in naming his nephew. The two share a common level of ability.

    Of the two, which will be the next eminem, and which will be waiting tables?

    I would rather take an enema than listen to Eminem, they sound alike and produce about the same result.

    I think Mrs Jones is padding Phil’s resume.

    Little Phillip reminds me of those Dos Equis commercials, starring The Most Interesting Man in the World. Does his mother have a tattoo that reads “Son”?

    Apparently some schools these days offer Advanced Placement (AP) classes for students trying to get a head start on college. These count more than regular high school classes, so getting an “A” in them can lead to a GPA higher than 4.0.

    Maybe he got a 4.6 GPA because Jojo was doing the math.

    I too was waiting with great expectations for a lovely Sunday Pun. Alas! ’Twas not to be.

    .

    However, it does take me back to when I was a founding member of the first revived University of Chicago Marching Kazoo Band to take the field after 70 years—well, truth be told, the first ever.

    And probably the last, considering how we sounded.

    a GPA of 4.6 is not possible, 4.0 is strait A’s
