    Wait for it… give him a minute… He’ll be here soon to tell us how this proves It’s all Obama’s fault for being a socialist Muslim terrorist. Just another minute…

    I’m clueless about this one.

    Anyone? Can anyone explain what this one is about?

    I just looked at the comments posted on for this comic. Those who did give an opinion sounded rather lame and it was obvious that they had no idea either.

    jtpozenel: This has to do with Obama, the war in Afghanistan, the tsunami in Indonesia, the Yankees’ World Series win, Bernanke on the Fed role with banks AND the gasoline imports. I love the way the Bug has tied them all together. Great one!

    Having known “Boca Raton Barbara” types, I laughed out loud! Maybe you need to have elderly relatives in Florida to really appreciate the joke. :-)

    Ushindi: Thanks. Now everything is crystal clear.

    Well, almost. How about the decaf coffee? I’m thinking that has something to do with U.S. - Latin American relations. (The marble cake tipped me off!) And I think whatever she’s smoking in the last panel might be related as well.

    I have a friend who used to live in Boca - one of the first things she pointed out while visiting her was the lines in front of restaurants. The good ones had long lines - food worth waiting for - or the best “early bird specials”. Don’t bother going to the ones with empty parking lots during meal time.

    Boca Raton Barbara’s probably got some of her training in some of those lines - cool but cunning;-))

    Showdown at the Golden (OK) Corral (Buffet) comes to mind!

    guys… you know not all Bolling comics are political in nature? Sheesh, never saw so much overthinking, even in grad school. It is just kinda absurdest humor poking fun at two different archetypes.

    You might be the one over-thinking. Don’t you recognize a little humor among posters, or do you actually take everything we say literally?

    Wake up and smell the decaf. Sheesh!

    (Are you related to a guy named Doty?)

    It’s an advertisement for Gillette products, only with different words.

    Notice how clean-shaven Haney is in the second panel?

    Nobody, and I mean NOBODY messes with Boca Raton Barbara! That women is tougher than shoe sole leather. She don’t take no guff from no-one ya’ll. She should have her own TV show, just so’n we could watch her defeat her enemies every week.
