This week’s top comment? Is that what you’re after? Well, good news: here it is.

“Being presented with ‘so many things to do’ and then opting for ‘wandering around a bit before going back to our room’ is ridiculously on brand for Rex Morgan protagonists.” –TheDiva

There were many competitors for this top spot! Here are the runners up.

“So, uh, why is Dagwood’s ‘treasure chest’ clearly one of those rock band touring cases? I refuse to believe Dagwood has ever seen any form of live music that didn’t involve the Charleston, and I certainly refuse to believe he was a roadie for the kind of insufferable alt rock band that would wear that kind of hat.” –Schroduck

“The titular leading lady of the strip rarely gets to exhibit any personality beyond being a plank-like straight man for Dagwood’s antics, but it’s always regrettable when those uncommon opportunities arise. Women-be-shopping, judgmental gossiping, and a psychotically violent impulse towards anachronistic headwear. That’s all you’ll ever know about Blondie Bumstead, and you’ll wish you knew less.” –jroggs

“Shouldn’t the hat be riding on top of Dagwood’s cowlicks? You can’t tell me those things bend.” –matt w

“Excited to learn about Hootin’ Holler’s burgeoning zine culture.” –MRNA Loy, on Twitter

“No … Rod, these are bottles of root beer. He’s in really bad shape, man.” –taig

“Retirement, lesson 1: Keep your arms crossed at all times. Lesson 2: Take off the ski mask. Jeez, give the guy a chance, will ya? He’s already halfway through the course!” –Peanut Gallery

“Of course he doesn’t recognize you, that room is nearly pitch black with a bit of grey(?) ambient light. See those people in the background? That’s how you look to them!” –pugfuggly

“When the bill for veterinary services is presented, I hope the woman with the dog knows enough to at least try ‘we can discuss compensation later [wink].’” –Handsome Harry Backstayge, Idol of a Million Other Women

If the Wilbur Weston drinking game requires us to take a shot every time he responds to ‘How are you?’ with ‘Not great,’ we might as well call the paramedics now.” –BigTed

Does he know? Is Gil aware of the 145 dropped subplots out there?” –2+2=7

Hank and Yvonne. We’re on history’s most boring honeymoon!” –MKay

“Dennis, in his quest to be a demagogue, has already begun the work of rhetorically denying the terrible things he will say in his speeches, which his followers will believe, no Ministry of Truth needed. Right now it’s lying about saying some soft swear words, but this will build faster than anyone, even us long-time readers, will be ready for.” –Philip

“Lois put her children in front of a channel known for its nudity without even checking before what they were watching. This strip is slowly evolving from the 1950s to the 1980s.” –Ettorre

“It’s a good thing Ed and Estelle only go to The Piano Bar and not The Karaoke Club. What? The Piano Bar is closed tonight? Fate rears its comb-overed head…” –Myrtle

Old Purple Dress is over there thinking, ‘I was just going to come in, sell her a few tubes of Rodan & Fields Lash Boost, then get the hell out of here. How did it come to this?’” –Old School Allie Cat

“Manners, schmanners. Menace, penace. Why’s this panel shaped like Alberta?” –pastordan
