One of Gene’s cousins is her real father.
In a few months Janis will be talking to her sister and it’ll come out that her son, who’s a little older than Gene, had a thing with a girl at the beach where they went on summer vacations. The girl called him at home a month or so later, and when he got off the phone he told his mom that he didn’t want to go back there any more. She assumed that Mary Sue or whatever-her-name-was had broken his heart, and that’s why they’ve been going to the mountains every summer since then.
Don’t tell anybody.
Since Speedball doesn’t have any nibs in the 200-microns-and-below range, any comics J.J. draws are microorganism- and allergen-free. Drink away, Arlo.
I don’t get it. Is the bologna supposed to represent America, or Columbus’ discovery of it, or something else or nothing? Does he even mean American bologna, or maybe it’s Italian mortadella? And why does he say he made antipasti when there’s only one antipasto in evidence?
I think I should go to bed. Maybe everyone else will have left obvious explanations by morning.
It says that you were born in February!
I’ve met a few God-haters, but they’re no more atheists than you are. An atheist simply lacks a belief in God or gods in general.
If you are a Christian, why do you not believe in Allah? Or, if you are a Muslim, why do you not believe in Yahweh? If you will thoughtfully answer this question, I think you will understand why atheists don’t believe in either.
Oh, how quickly we forget our siblings when they leave home.
We get it, all men are clueless…
Actually that must include J.J., since he’s forgotten that Janis and Gene TEXT each other far more than they call. They would have sent several both ways by now, and the last two strips would never happen.
Or am I still being clueless?
Is it my imagination, or does Janis’s expression not change at all through all four frames?
I love the 3D effect in the third frame though; I almost ducked when Arlo’s hand shot out at me!
At first I didn’t know whether Gus was talking to his guests, inviting them back into the restaurant to continue the reception, or to J.J.’s readers, inviting them to continue following the strip.
Then I realized it was both.
’Sallright, Arlo, I thought they were gonna take the seafood, too!
