For help on how to follow a comic title,
My Mom says that “Black and Decker and their drills and electric saws did more than anyone else for women’s liberation” – though she would rather have flowers. Dad’s been warned.
Jeff could get the KBE which is a form of honorary knighthood for non-Britons, such as Irish singer Bob Geldof for his charity work; or US Defence Secretary Caspar Weinberger for supporting Britain during the Falklands War. The real flaw in Zipper’s plan is that the Queen will never be allowed to go to Afghanistan – Jeff would have to go to Buckingham Palace (even better actually).
Alex’s black armband is a little premature, isn’t it?
Ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, a bloodthirsty French revolutionary and British Prime Ministers are sources for good speeches? Schulz clearly did not put much faith in the speech-makers of his native America! (And if Romney and Obama are anything to go by, I can’t say I blame him ;)
Gram finally has her seat-belt on. Granddaughter ought to follow example.
Driving without seatbelts? An accident waiting to happen!!!!
Typical Mike! One of the biggest days in his daughter’s life and he has his annual summer daydream! Alex and Toggle should have set the date for winter!
Even with a secret location, odds are that Mom and Uncle Stupidhead will literally gatecrash it, like they did with Mike and Kim’s wedding (see http://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/1997/04/21). Maybe best to have Uncle BD and Ray Hightower on standby to throw Uncle Stupidhead into the nearest trash.
