Case of the Mondays

I was going to poke fun here but, you know what? This strip? With a group of somber people at a funeral? And then one of them tries their hand at comic book-themed joke? And they completely botch it, because the line “with great power comes great responsibility” puts the responsibility on the person with the power, so I think Cindy wants to be saying that Bull was so popular that everyone’s coming back for his funeral, but in fact she’s saying that she’s so popular that it was her responsibility to grace this funeral with her beloved presence? And then there’s a smash cut to the obituary? It’s perfect. It’s a perfect Funky Winkerbean. How could you improve on it? You can’t. There’s literally no way.

So on last week’s date Wilbur did just want to watch Netflix and relax, and what he wanted to watch was a documentary about boxing and Estelle didn’t care for it but also didn’t speak up and they watched it and … now she doesn’t know about Wilbur? I’m not sure I really buy into this logic, but I also think dating Wilbur is a terrible idea and nobody should do it, so I’m not going to complain. Go to it, Estelle! Let the dumping commence!
