Glad that Bucky called Satchel out for what Satchel is in the last panel. And Satchel laughs at starvation, too. Shame on Satchel. He’s cruel. Bucky sure did call him out accordingly.
A reality check for those above who live in Arizona and Texas. You need to get out of the house a bit more often. In 1997, I got stuck in a blizzard passing through Amarillo, which got 13 inches of snow. And I had just left Flagstaff, Arizona the day before, which, due to its almost 8000 ft. elevation was dealing with its own snow storm. That said, one look at the impasse in which Elly finds herself, and I thank God for Southern California. It’s dirty. It’s expensive. And it’s crowded. But the above scene never plays out there.
I like that! Drop kick Satchel next time. And if Bucky’s airspace is invaded, well, Bucky’s army will just have to shoot ’em down. Oh well…..
He says “hush” more than Billy Joe Royal and Deep Purple combined.
Hmmm. At times like this, maybe those around may have considered referring to Tiff as Karen. Truthfully, she just flat out doesn’t get it, though. Free pass on this end.
Garfield’s observation would be even funnier if there wasn’t so much truth to it.
That’s because in reality, they weren’t “The Darling Boys”. They were a well established band called the Dillards, who at that time had a number of recordings out on the Elektra label. They are highly respected among musicologists as being among the finest in that field.
He doesn’t notice because he IS a giant toad himself. In this strip, his pleasure is almost invariably at everyone else’s expense. He doesn’t take “no” for an answer. And he’s not “cute”, either. The “Aww, it’s just the wild imagination of a young boy” excuse only goes so far when he’s an unrepentant and undisciplined irritant to those around him. He’s obnoxious. Good job, Eva!
I get that. At the same time, it’s a poignant reminder of what an intellectual wasteland the mainstream media has become.
