    Usually starts with one player up and one back, but it’s not unusual for players to try to get up to the net. The bigger issues are both players (yellow and red clothes) are on the same side of the court (“it is customary for the artist to get everything into one frame”), and the player in red is going to hit a ball that’s going out!

    I didn’t know that Bono corrected his lyrics – I suppose he now sings “Early evening, April 4”?

    Yes, it’s a comic, but interesting how it mirrors real life a lot of the time. Another insignificant goof, a cover-two defense (with two deep safetys) is not normally used when the defense is expecting a run.

    Wow, I’m glad I live in an age where it’s relatively easy to check certain facts. I don’t recall CA needing a bailout, and the current budget, according to the San Jose Mercury News “[…] the state’s coffers are again overflowing with a $15 billion surplus in Newsom’s proposed $227.2 billion budget announced Friday. [Jan 8, 2021]”

    P51Strega: I had similar experience – the way north, the Canadian customs person greeted me, then asked where I was going. I told him that I was visiting my aunt and uncle, he asked a couple more typical questions and said, “Have a good visit, eh?” and sent me on my way. On my way back, the first thing the US customs grunted at me was to remove my prescription sunglasses. Now squinting at him and nearly blind, he asked where I was from. I misunderstood and said that I’m from San Diego, but drove across from Seattle. He said “You were just in Canada, where are you coming from?” I said sorry, I was in Surrey. He then said, “Roll down your window”. <?Huh?> I pushed the down button on my window so that the last inch went down. He said “Roll down your window”. I looked at him puzzled, and put my hand out the obviously open window. He growled “Roll down your REAR window”. Sheesh! (I didn’t say anything, silently rolling down the rear window). He asked some more questions, and I was sure that I was going to get searched, but he finally grunted and let me leave. What a contrast.

    No one mentioned canned lima beans! Although canned asparagus sounds hideous. I remember usually having fresh or sauteed spinach at home. When I was in elementary school, spinach was printed on the menu. When I got my lunch, I had a scoop of green paste on my plate along with the rest of the meal, and I was wondering where the spinach was. I had no idea that green glob was spinach.

    On vacation, the father of a friend brushed his teeth using anti-itch cream. After he spit it out in disgust, he took a look at the tube so that he wouldn’t buy the same brand of toothpaste again, and then discovered what he had done…

    I fear the same thing may have happened with the Post Office situation. Sigh.
