Hi and Lois, 10/11/04

The Middletons, 10/11/04

Maybe there ought to be some kind of online database where comic artists can post a schedule of the gags they plan to use. It might prevent embarrassing moments like these. At least the dialogue in Hi and Lois sounds like something a normal human would actually say; “the oldies rock ‘n’ roll” is a phrase that seems to have come from someone who is almost, but not quite, fluent in idiomatic English.

Fun fact about Hi and Lois: Lois is actually Beetle Bailey’s sister. That’s right, Hi and Lois is actually a spin-off, like Frasier or Maude. Lois and her brother haven’t spoken in years, though, perhaps because of her anti-military radicalism.

Fun fact about The Middletons: There are no fun facts about The Middletons.

Today’s linkback goes to a blogger known as leathermessiah, who was nice enough to say that “those of you who have not yet experienced the wonder that is Josh Reads The Comics So You Don’t Have To, I command that you do so immediately if not sooner.” Yeah! Also, today’s most alarming search result, on AOLSearch: “free Miss Buxley Blondie porn comics sex”. America Online: Connecting perverts with smut since 1995.
