Funky Winkerbean, 6/2/15
The current Funky Winkerbean storyline has involved Les being reluctantly drafted into helping run his graduating class’s high school reunion, and it’s been duller than most, but I’m kind of intrigued that any work at all has to go into contacting Westview High graduates, since one of the running themes of the strip is that nobody ever escapes the black hole of doom that is this horrible hell-town. I guess some people do? And they’re never spoken about aloud? Because it’s too depressing to imagine that you could leave but then for some reason don’t? Anyway, today we learn that everyone Les graduated with has a Facebook account but him, and I certainly hope they use their social networking time to all talk to each other about what a gloomy and yet somehow also insufferably smug ass he is.

Haha, I’m loving this out-of-nowhere slam on current James Bond director Sam Mendes. “He’s the worst kind of hack! You tell him American Beauty was the crappiest Best Picture winner in the last twenty years! Worse than Crash, d’you hear me? Worse than Crash!”
