For help on how to follow a comic title,
He MUST have been watching or reading the news if he knew without being told that the teacher was a “her” and not a “he.’”
As they live in Detroit, it might be a shot at the miserable season the Red Wings are having (12 wins in 50 games, a goal-difference of -88, and dead last in the 31-team National Hockey League). So even though the Detroit newspapers are no doubt still covering the Dead Things (who are currently on a five-game losing streak), casual sports fans like this kid have stopped reading about them.
As of 11 p.m. Yukon Time Tuesday night (2 a.m. Detroit time Wednesday morning), it’s 15 degrees Celsius in Dawson City, 12 degrees in Detroit. The overnight low in Dawson will be 8, while it will go down to 10 in Detroit. Wednesday’s forecast high in Dawson is 22 while Detroit should get up to 27. I have no idea what that works out to on the Obsolete Scale.
He’s like the golfer in the P. G. Wodehouse story who “missed short putts because of the uproar of the butterflies in the adjoining meadows.”
As P. G. Wodehouse’s canine narrator The Mixer said, “Any dog will tell you what those prize-ribbon show dogs are like. Their heads are so swelled they have to go into their kennels backwards.”
Apparently arithmetic isn’t Sakura’s strong point.
That can’t be right. For the first time in history Heart actually gave Dean top billing in a Heart-and-Dean enterprise. Must be because she knows they’re going to get in trouble and wants Dean to get the lion’s share of the blame.
It reminds me of the P. G. Wodehouse story “The Code of the Mulliners” when Archie Mulliner thought his mother was cracking up when he saw her doing a prescribed exercise to reduce her double-chin.
I’m sure Jarvis knows that the actress in question should be addressed “Dame Judith” or “Dame Judi” but NOT “Dame Dench.” If she at some point because a countess, baroness, marchioness, viscountess or some other variety of titled personage she might become known as “Lady Dench” but never, never, ever “Dame Dench.” ….Come to think of it, Jarvis calling her “Dame Dench” proves the Young Master was right in writing him off as “essentially incompetent.”
Reminds me of that bit in one of the first episodes of “Corner Gas” when Lacey has just moved to Dog River (Pop: 300) from Toronto (Pop: 3,000,000). After work she drops into the town bar and asks “What’s the house red?”
Bartender: Not sure. (turns and shouts to someone in the back room) Hey, what’s it say on that bag of wine back there? No! That’s ketchup! The other bag.
Lacey: You know what? Beer’s good.
