    I’ll admit, the setup for this to be a Sunday Punday was a lot more subtle than usual.

    I don’t think I caught on until the actual pun, which of course is also the main actual punchline.

    Love the movie, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

    Yes, I know it wasn’t historically accurate, but if if gets a new generation interested in Queen, good enough for me. Heck, it even got me to rip all me CDs onto a USB stick to play theme in my car.

    An American, a Frenchman, a Spaniard, and a German went to church. The only seats were in the back of the church. They could hear the pastor, but couldn’t see him. They asked if he could step up onto something so they could see him as he spoke. He complied and asked, “Can you see me now”? They responded. “Yes, oui, sí, ya.”

    This is a waste of space. All Pastis “pun” strips are a waste of space (they’re technically not even puns, because an actual pun comes without a set-up). I think from now on I’ll just skip the Sunday strips. If I miss a non-“pun” strip once in a while, it’s worth it to avoid wasting ten seconds a week on this kind of humorless childishness.
