Like “The Big Bang Theory” – this was so much better without the complicated neurosis of girl characters. Trying too hard to make them less normal little kids and either frightened geniuses or sociopaths. Wallace, Spud, and Sterling, need more normal friends (ie boys, or undamaged gals).
I want to say Pearl Harbor, but that community already suffered enough. Amelia would be beyond the pale, and how!
Amelia’s hot air.
Oh shut-up Amelia!
Thank you! I was wondering the same thing! What an interesting outfit choice!
Remember how the Jetsons had us looking forward to video phones? Now I’m like, ugh, I gotta put the camera up high where all my chins don’t show and either wear a robe or a bra. Ugh!
I love how much Amelia hates how cool that is. Nobody deserves disappointment more.
So Pastis went totally PC with the character – definitely not college-aged, or female, non-white and/or covered with piercings, non-traditional dress or hair, or an obvious accent of any kind (unless it was Southern, it’s always okay to make fun of us). He played it safe, and that’s just hilarious to me.
Okay, so was it my daughter or husband who paid for this strip? Scaredy cats! Look, I ain’t gettin’ any younger, sooner I get to that dang light or sign, sooner I can get back up to speed. We’re burnin’ daylight y’all! (JK, in case my auto insurance rep ever sees this. ;-) )
The term “coconut milk” goes back at least to the 15th century, so Big Dairy will lose any case against soy, almond, or oatmeal (pardon me while I gag) using the phrase milk for their product.
