I’ve seen some of the food made today. Seems “bare minimum” standards lowered quite a bit because I’ve seen things ranging from a gross sausage in American cheese to moldy stuff. The venn diagram for school and prison food is basically a circle. I went to school in the 90s through aughts and school lunches were pretty bad. Tasteless at best, pretty gross at worst. High school got better but I still didn’t like ’em.
School lunches in the 70s were a dollar for the whole week.
And it’s because a kid should just be fed if they’re going to have to spend 7 hours a day at a place where they’re expected to learn.
Y’know, the fact that these jokes still remain topical in the strip’s 36 year run is kinda sad when you think about it. Especially when any attempts to push for better meals in schools and just let the kids eat them without having to pay out of pocket gets met with abject vitriol, usually from people who otherwise cry “think of the children!”

Well, considering they are just their old designs with bows and chest bumps.
Oh that is upsetting.
Family bonding through mutual hatred for dissing a cherished recipe. Beautiful~
