Metapost: Comments. Comments. Who wants this week’s greatest comments?
Hi kids! It’s that Sunday treat you all crave … the comments of the week! Here’s this week’s top performer:
“Hey, Dr. Jeff, could you elaborate a little on this Agent Orange thingy? Was it a good thing or a bad thing?” –Weasel Boy
And the others of the most hilarious:
“And MW is cranking along nicely, I see. I especially like Saturday’s. ‘So Jeff, tell me about the children … were they tasty?’” –lesles
“Are only Americans allowed to leave Vietnam? From the passengers in that plane it looks like they just left Salt Lake City.” –reader-who-posts
“All I want to know is: Where exactly is he hiding that sack full of carrots? … No, wait, nix that. No I don’t.” –JamesK
“The more I’m exposed to Slylock ‘Pound of Flesh’ Fox, the more convinced I am that it is an exercise designed to teach children that life is not fair, consistent, nor just.” –Pelagius
“‘I hope Andy doesn’t start barking!’ ‘I hope the tranquilizer I put in Andy’s snack works!’ ‘I hope old Mark Doesn’t figure out what I did until Sally and I are out of the country!’ ‘I just have to be careful not to leave any evidence behind!’ ‘I dread getting in the cold water!’ For a con artist (short for ‘confidence artist’, I might add), this guy is totally devoid of any confidence in his plan.” –Suburban Legend
“FW: Don’t worry, they’ll be able to distinguish between you and your son because you’ll be referred to as the ‘late Wally.'” –Caged Tygre
“Whenever someone says that kids today have it too easy, just show them the impossible-to-solve Slylock Fox.” –AppleGirl
“The plot sickens! Gil Thorp, Man Detective!” –Marion Delgado
“The idea of The Family Circus using the phrase ‘a whole line of’ anything is almost too tantalizing to pass up. I will, though.” –Joe
“At some point, I expect to see the following Slylock Fox answer: ‘Because he just had a hunch, okay? Slylock then proceeded to beat the suspect with a sock full of pennies until he got a confession.'” –Steve S
“And by the way, Tommie is provocatively dressed today. Her entire neck is visible. Me likey!” –PeteMoss
“‘Cleaning the garage’ seems like such an ugly euphemism for this tender moment between a juvenile delinquent and a married nurse. I think they should have gone with something more subtle and tasteful like ‘lapsnorkeling.'” –Monkeys Uncle
“I’ve found a way to remember who R.J. is in Gil Thorp: when I see him I think of ‘R. J. Reynolds’ because his head looks like a pack of cigarettes.” –gh
“(DT)GT: Well, the look on R.J. Brennan’s face in panel two says it all. I don’t know what it’s saying, since I’m not a misshapen alien from a nearby planet, but it’s certainly saying it loud.” –Craigers
“Is that blonde woman sitting behind Mary and Dr. Jeff a terrorist? Because if she isn’t, she will be by the end of the flight.” –gkl
“Dan’s plan seems to involve him getting nude outside a lot. My kind of plan.” –Tukla in Iowa
“This topical episode would be cutting edge in most nonpolitical strips, but in Funky? My only surprise is that it was topical at all. In the Funky-verse, he was just as likely to get maimed by a toaster or have a drunk driver plow through his wall and squash him in bed.” –Vex the Sane
“I’m glad FW is finally providing just what my comics page needed: entrails. –Tracer Bullet
