Barney Google and Snuffy Smith, 5/31/19
Changes to health care policy are both politically contentious and incredibly complex to implement, with lots of unanticipated results both good and bad. For instance, increasing the number of insured in poor rural communities has documented benefits in terms of improved medical outcomes. But it also results in increased blood feuding! Can the social fabric in our beloved hollers withstand the increase in violent hillbilly-on-hillbilly crime that would inevitably follow in the wake of universal healthcare?
The Lockhorns, 5/31/19
You might be tempted to focus on Leroy’s puzzling assumption that a uniform shape is somehow a sign of a good set of pancakes, but I can’t stop thinking about who these people are and what they’re doing in the Lockhorns’ dining room at what we must assume is breakfast time. My guess is that they finally worked up the nerve to answer a personal ad on the local swingers website, and as their faces clearly show, have experienced an evening of harrowing discovery as a result.
