If they thought it was one of my schoolmates or my schoolmates’ parents – maybe.
Honestly, this was really a week with a dark streak. Uncomfortably darker than the usual “Charlie Brown can’t ever quite win” or the usual scorn from Lucy.This was Peppermint Patty and Marcie being out of character (and Marcie quite darkly). Lucy would be in-character being scornful of the notion of a testimonial for CB. Peppermint Patty would have been in-character if she declined because she liked Chuck but couldn’t get behind a testimonial because he never topped her on the playing field. Marcie would have had no delusions about Charles’ (not “Chuck”) achievements but would have supported the testimonial on grounds of his sportsmanship. She wouldn’t have felt hypocritical.The only way it would have made any sense is if Marcie pointed outto the others they were being hypocrites and they gave up in remorse – sort’a like the time when the team abandoned CB on the field because they realized it was Mother’s Day and they were out playing and hadn’t done anything for their Moms and were terrible children (except for CB, who got a break-the-fourth-wall last word, remarking that he had gotten his mom a nice card and a box of candy)
In fairness, we don’t see/hear the phone ringing and Linus answering it. The first panel could mean that off-panel parent had answered it and told Linus it was for him.
Somewhat.That time, I think the great Joe S had written down the wrong date/time and the wrong city.On the plus side, Snoopy met Peggy Fleming.
You might call me Mad, but I think the sound effect in the third panel should have been “Zot!!!”
On the flip side…An Astros fan wanted to know how bad it was or wasn’t. He downloaded game data (pitch charts) from MLB, downloaded game audio for something like 8000 pitches, then ran the audio through a sound editor on his computer to detect trash can noise.It was bad.He found clear indications of a pattern of signalling, of improved performance when signalling, and a sharp drop in the use of the method after they nearly got busted in one game.
It could also be Fluid-man – to be followed by Coil-man and Multi-man
Been a while since we saw Boog or his classmate. With the locomotive crew back last week, I was hoping there’d be an appearance by her little brother.
“…and then I had an interesting encounter with some baseball players from Pittsburgh. You can read about it at my new feature – Terry and The Pirates!”
Looks like Joey is visiting from Foxtrot
