    The story would have looked better if Grauman’s Chinese Theater was in the background.

    Interesting: Ruben Bolling is consistent. He follows a great cartoon, like last week’s, with a lame cartoon, like this one.

    Love it. What a fun way to incorporate a weird piece of topicality into a comic strip.

    It’s the best explanation I’ve heard so far.

    What I want is answers to two questions: 1) Why would someone, seeing that woman in the Charlie Chaplin film, jump to the idiotic conclusion she must be a time traveler from the future? And 2) Why would news networks jump all over the story and put the idiotic theory on TV?

    Oh, I think 2 just answered 1.

    I hadn’t heard of the Chaplin movie in question, so I had no idea that this strip was in any way topical. I just thought it was funny. “Percival Dunwoody: Idiot Time-Traveler from 1909” is one of my favorite of Bolling’s recurring characters.

    (Frankly, I’m awful tired of “Lucky Ducky.”)

    Having now looked at the link from “The Circus”, I can agree that it looks amazingly like someone talking on a cell phone. And I have no doubt that’s exactly what it is - someone doing something that looks amazingly like talking on a cell phone… Fun.

    I supposed that “Tom the dancing Bug” has a new cartoon every Sunday, so I only looked at Sundays. However, a few days ago I logged onto TTDB to see if I missed any additional comments, and found a new “episode.” So, which day is a new one come posted?

    The new “TTDB” cartoons appear on Fridays.

    The first Fritzoid comment I’ve ever differed with.

    This week’s Dunwoody is a classic, though, because of the “butter churn” panel. The rest of it was fairly entertaining, as well.
