I'm pretty sure Gordon is being raised by the television no matter whose house he's in.
Today's Full Strip
Amy is beaten down by Life, and her own mother won't even help her out. The parents in Santa Royale are lousy.
Gordon's a little slow. His favorite TV program is "Test Pattern".
Wanders, your secret message hits the nail on the head. Millions of mothers with children work full time. Are things different in the Worthiverse? Perhaps Gordon has been expelled from multiple schools and after school/day care programs.Showing my age here - Gordon's profile in the first panel reminds me of Arthur Godfrey. Put down the giant remote and pick up the ukelele, Gordon!
Golly, KitKat, you're totally right. Arthur Godfrey it is. (The younger kids can google it.). We can only hope that Gordon/Arthur stays glued to the TV, and never talks. Moy's tin ear for dialogue is especially glaring when it comes to children.
What a whiny little brat! And I don't mean Gordon. (So far, he's the most likeable character in this stupid scenario.) Now that we know what a 'wonderful' job Hanna did raising her daughter with the over-blown sense of entitlement, what a ghastly idea to have her rear another generation.
What a Dingdon!
Yep, Gordon sure does look like Arthur Godfrey. And his mother looks like a hunchback....or a character from Dark Shadows. Meanwhile, Hannah holds a doll's leg in her hand.
Hi Wanders, Amy can't work full time because it takes at least 5 hours a day sourcing and consuming meth. How can I tell? It has to do with the heavy circles under eyes and her degenerate haircut.You're welcome!
Really, it's very sad. Gordon holds the remote upside down and hopes, hopes, hopes the channel will change. It never does.
Amy may belong to that Special Group of women who will not work. They just won't. I know some and they either quit work as soon as the husband made "enough" or suck on the alimony pony for as long as they can. It drives me nuts because I've always worked.
Wait a minute, they were standing in the same doorway last comic, except the paintings have changed, and there was a mirror before. What the heck?
Wednesday@Dartpaw86 at 9:41 a.m., we are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. This is an area that we call [ba-bum!] the Worthy Zone. It is a place where mirrors shape-shift at will, vases of pink flowers mysteriously disappear, dull gray books transport themselves from book case to hall table, and gray-haired women shrivel before one's eyes.
Ah, Dartpaw86, welcome to the Worthiverse, where backgrounds shift in surreal splendor, kitchens are designed by M.C. Escher, and food items are rarely recognizable. It's all part of the fun, provided by Joe Giella for our bemused enjoyment.
