Hi and Lois, 9/21/13
Boy, print media, am I right everyone? Print media’s the best. You can’t hear no gosh-darn Internet landing on your driveway with a healthy plop at 6 a.m. on a Saturday. And you certainly can’t sit up in bed smugly at an hour when a normal person would be sleeping, thinking about the print newspaper you’re about to read, and then wake up your wife, who is sleeping, because as loud as that plop is, it might not be loud enough to wake her up. She’s gotta appreciate this moment, am I right? It’ll teach her the value of the newspaper subscription. PRINT MEDIA! Please keep subscribing to the print version of your newspaper, so that your newspaper can in turn continue paying for valuable syndicated content, like comic strips.
This is probably the first time I’ve ever seen Momma remain happy for all three panels of her strip. She’s grinning maniacally and her eyes are the size of dinner plates and she had delusions of grandeur and she’s making Francis uncomfortable so probably she’s on drugs?
