Hi and Lois, 10/28/08
Did you ever come to believe that Hi Flagston was actually a full-on delusional lunatic, that he spent his days in some kind of locked asylum for the incurably mentally ill, and that his wife and children were mere figments of his imagination? If so, your suspicions might be confirmed by today’s strip, in which Hi asks Mr. Foofram to say hello to his daughter, while holding a small desk-sized speaker that’s tethered by a string to a box of the sort that a necktie might come in. (Another hint: he believes that his “boss” is named “Mr. Foofram.”)
