Of course, as learning how to stay is part of their core curriculum.
I generally find it possible to suspend disbelief given the nature of the Peanuts universe but I agree that all this really is a bit much. The absentee parents I can look past, that’s been a constant going all the way back to the first strip. And I’m not seeing anything dark and ominous about Peppermint Patty being dangerously neglected; it’s clear to me that this is meant to be taken as absurd rather than pointed.
What broke this story for me was last Thursday’s strip, when we actually saw Peppermint Patty speak to an adult. The adult was as always unseen and unheard, but Pep’s dialogue made it clear that her enrollment was being accepted by someone who really should know better.
If the whole arc were strips like today’s, with Pep just describing vignettes from the obedience school that had happened offstage, I think I would have no problem buying it.
So how’s Michael’s blossoming friendship with Weed going? It’s got to be more interesting than this.
Eh, pen scribbles on your face were always going to make you look dorky.
Not really, she’s completely justified in treating Calvin this way.
What’s in been now, two weeks and change since the much-loved Josef Weeder made his debut? I think I’d rather we’d stuck with him than with the drivel we’ve been getting since.
A better question might be, why is someone April’s age allowed to let herself out without permission or even informing an adult that she’s doing so? Because if she’d had to go to Elly first, Elly could have made her put her boots on. Though then I guess we wouldn’t have a strip.
Indeed I have. Once again, you and I are cool.
All right, the MAGA death cult, then. And believe me, I desperately want to believe they are merely a “segment” of a once-great party.
The test of whether they are terrorists is not whether they self-identify as such (which I assume would be nearly all of them) but whether they are willing to repudiate terrorism by publicly opposing a certain figure who incites his followers thereto. You’ve already done that, so you and I are cool.
Is it standard behavior for gocomics commenters to ask and answer questions in such a way that allows them to emphasize whatever particular points they want to?
