Smoking is bad for you. Burning to a crisp is equally bad… just faster. The moral of this strip: never ski or try to light a ciggie in a cartoon. It never turns out well.

Because. : )
I skipped over ALL of the above comments and just posted this instead. Bwahahahahaha…
Wait… first frame… Sparkle’s butt is “really long”?
(Yes, another bored “goofy misinterpretation” of a comic strip. Deal with it. Mwahahahaha)
“Mmmmmm…. raaww livahhh…”
I have indeed found that most parking lots have (at least) row numbers. The trick is remembering to check the row number while you’re trying to remember your shopping list. ;D
Your theory isn’t correct. The main reason for lifting the restrictions is the abundance of available vaccines.
Do you have validated research supporting your statement?
It is recently reported that despite the abundance and increase in administration of vaccines in the U.S., hospital registrations and new infections are increasing. (Such data can easily be researched. I’ve been recording Covid rates both in the USA and world-wide since March of 2020.) In addition, authorities state that those who get vaccines should still wear masks and practice social distancing. These facts would contradict the idea that vaccines allow easing of restrictions. In the case of schools: “The COVID-19 vaccine is currently not authorized for use in children under the age of 16.” I stand by my post.
I have a theory about the “easing restrictions” on Covid-19. First, Covid isn’t getting any less dangerous. In fact, the mutations are actually increasing the danger. So why are governmental authorities relaxing restrictions and bunching children together in closed classrooms and not wearing masks? (social distancing is somewhat questionable in an enclosed space).
The current death rate for those who catch Covid is appx 1.8%. I’m thinking the government considers this “acceptable casualty”. They make these kinds of decisions all the time. They send people to war: acceptable casualties. People die in car accidents all the time. People die of cancer and heart attacks every day.
Bottom line: people die, regularly. The government knows this. 1.8% death rate of those who happen to catch Covid (which right now is 10% of the people in the U.S.) is “small beans”. The goal is herd immunity… because Covid isn’t going away. So sure, expose kids to Covid. The immune will survive. The majority who get sick will develop immunity. A few won’t. Governments seldom view people as individuals with families. They view populations as resource-users and voters.
That’s the only reason I can think of for relaxing restrictions and putting maskless children in school at a time when new Covid cases are still topping 60,000 every single day.
After this event, they had no difficulty finding the frying pan.
