Blondie, 11/18/17

OH GOOD LET’S JUST CONTINUE WITH BLONDIE’S FOOD-HORROR SHALL WE? In today’s installment, the true nightmare happens just off-panel: the announcement of the bacon shortage comes from “Percy Pigmann,” who begins his report on the issue by oinking. Percy is, I think it goes without saying, a sapient pig, here to tell the world that his kind will no longer be killed and butchered for their flesh. That all’s very idealistic and inspiring, Percy, but watch out: Dagwood is saying the right things about this positive social change, but his hair indicates that he’s still livid about this shift in the prevailing power hierarchy. Like all civil rights advances, this one will be met with a backlash.

Loweezy and Elviney are just passing the time imagining that blessed future day when both their husbands are dead.
