For help on how to follow a comic title,
I have wondered that myself. John never enlisted in the military nor shed his blood for his country, yet he considers Michael to lazy and self-centered. What makes John so superior?
No, but a teenage driver will cause auto insurance rates to skyrocket, largely due to inexperience. Rates tend to lower on two factors: age and sex. With age comes experience, and thus the risk of accident is decreased. Female drivers have caused less accidents than male drivers, and as such women tend to pay less in premiums.
His first name is Michael, but his last name is not Jackson. This strip probably will not produce the only music video that has been elected to the Library of Congress: Thriller!
Especially not if they are cashiers. After the doors are locked the cashiers tend to close their registers, count the cash and have the manager do a reconciliation.
I do agree with Lynn Johnston’s decision to rewrite this comic. However, I am not so sure her statement how “In today’s world..” is precise. I just saw The Wolf of Wall Street, and seeing how Leonardo Dicaprio saw Margot Robbie not as his bride, but as someone who “belonged” to him shows that the concept may be out of favor, but has yet to go extinct.
The way these Patterson kids act sometimes gets me saying to myself that not even Calvin on his worst day would do that!
I never had any problem with my own brother. I have no idea why this strip perpetuates the stereotype that siblings are required to fight and be mean to each other.
Sounds like a Dave Berg cartoon in MAD, specifically “The Lighter Side of Of”.
A girl in a one-piece swimsuit is walking by a pool. A boy in the pool splashes her.
Boy: “Ha ha, now you’re all wet!”
Girl: “I just bought this new bathing suit! Are you trying to ruin it?”
Sometimes that punctation is used to get someone’s attention. She was busy with her work and the gentleman said “Rhetta?” as in a way to politely let her know he had arrived, as opposed to the vulgarian way of calling someone “hey” or “yo”.
Can’t say I have ever been critical of Bill Watterson, but today’s strip did not make much sense at first. Maybe if they were shown eating from a KFC bucket of fried chicken then the joke would have been more obvious.
