    Sorry, but you anglers are all out of line; got that straight, or am I just bent out of shape over this?

    Funny. And fun. Even if one-dimensional. Do the geometroids in Flatland read a comic strip called “Lines?”

    Should all the angles be included, in the Society?

    Yesterday there was a protracted argument along those lines when some of them met on the corner….

    But nobody would admit a single point.

    I maybe going off on a tangent, but if you add a circle here you will get more of an arc in this story.

    If Pastis managed to stretch this strip’s concept out for a week, would be considered a protractor?

    Funny strip. I wonder if Stephan got any flack for having the word ‘gay’ in the setup line in the last panel.
