Greg puts as much effort into showing the creepy, ex-bully in a good light as he does pulling the carpet out from under Tiffany.
Punk is here to stay.
The wowness factor. Just contrast the warm, bright colors from yesterday’s strip with the drab colors for the drab people of today’s strip.
I don’t think that Joseph Conrad would argue with perfection. But then, he was a very dark writer, often hard for my simple mind to comprehend. Could it be that “Heart of Darkness” was not just a title for his book, but also his diagnosis? : )
Joseph Conrad in his short story, “Youth” offers several observations . One, if I may, says in part, “I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back anymore --the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, and expires, too soon - before life itself.” I do not believe that Mr. Conrad ever spoke at an Optimists’ Club meeting. : )
Ah, youth, desire, energy. It will slip away before you know it, like that proverbial thief in the night, so go for it now.
Now there’s a good news – bad news thought.
Now comes the “morning after” for Gunther and Bets’ Valentine dance.
“Aunt Toni, why is your tummy getting bigger?”
That reminds me of a line from the old “Laugh In” TV show. Old lady is hot to trot and old man tells her, “I can’t sock it to you anymore, but I can lay it on you”. Maybe terms from the 80’s don’t make sense now days.
