I liked it, but if we’re still going back nine years, who was absolutely terrible like that for a third party in ’12?
We wouldn’t be looking at Jill Stein yet, and as for LaRouche and Nader, they were both already jokes and it’s unlikely LLwellyn woudl bother (though he may admittedly have been inclined to Nader in the previous and maybe even FOLLOWING elections to when this was released).
Now if someone were to see your comment in 20_25,_ yes, certainly it would be bad to make that joke. Though I also think that Llewellyn would notice how many people were thinking that without brainwashing and not take a chance on adding to their number.
But then again,
It’s ’71, which means that the US and Mainland China are making nice.
In the meantime, the Russo-Chinese Cold War is at one of ITS deepest points. I’ll admit we didn’t hate the Russians like ‘56 or the early 80s, but there were plenty of people who’d still have had something against them.
I just wonder how that paint that Nancy faked the info with, dried in time for her to not get caught.
I suspect he’ll still do that from about 10 or 15 feet up, judging by the way that trunk looks.
On the “bright” side, he’ll only get the sudden stop from horizontal motion followed by the sudden end of a fall, rather than the compounded forces from both directions’ motion stopping at once.
Remember when that was HARMLESS trolling and not highly dangerous?
Very good rule.
Now tell me how many of your peers you saw following it before 1990.
Kevin is behaving exactly the way I’d expect a lower middle class kid to do around a skateboard—well, check that—I couldn’t even stay on one for 20 feet before falling off the back end or taking a faceplant as I fell forward off the right side, but I still wouldn’t have ever thought to try to put on a helmet first.
I am pleasantly surprised it’s an actual wood board and apparently pretty well made, instead of the molded plastic ones that were so common around ’87.
Well, PART of the reason you had a feeling this would be a fail—even before the strip for Tuesday proved it—would be if you remembered the various “skateboarding Dave” strips from /Safe Havens/, over at the competition. This feels like it could well be an homage, especially with the angle of the ground in the fourth panel.
Another reason would be that unlike Holbrook’s characters, Kevin has a terrified look on his face in that panel.
There were only three NETWORKS, plus NET, which was less than a year from being revamped into PBS.
But the FCC was granting more licenses than that, so there were a reasonable number of INDEPENDENT TV stations in a lot of markets.
That and Ernie was becoming almost as non-fond of change as Al Capp, as you could see from the two shots at “Yippies” (who may have been actual Yippies or might have simply been hippies) over the past month before this. So there’s a possibility that part of this is also intended as a shot at TV as a whole.
Are we sure it’s a misunderstanding?
How do we know that panel 3 is a fantasy panel rather than a standard cutaway to Goat’s POV?
Hey! I like Ankha!
“Cranky” isn’t always bad!
While you might think that’s HER laziness, HE’S still in the car and it’s a whole lot easier to reach through a sunroof than put a hand close enough to the back window to take a handoff (even if Luann is reaching as deep in as she can).
