Thank you Ms. Moy and Uncle Joe for depicting so precisely how I have often felt blogging about this strip! (Sometimes the intensity just overwhelms me.) This panel is a keeper.
Today's full strip
Tommy may have a new career as a Charlie Brown impersonator.
Panel of the Year nominee! That was my expression throughout the Dawn and the Naughty Professor story. Maybe Mary will become Tommy's NA sponsor. Or she'll introduce him to the secret stash she's stolen from Dr. Cory's medicine cabinet.
Oh, the humanity!
Nance beat me to the Peanuts reference, and I think the Charles Schulz estate has a clear case of copyright infringement. Definitely panel of the year material, though!
I agree - this is a strong contender for Panel of the Year. It may even become a meme, expressing general, all-purpose "auggghhhh"-ness. For example, Phil Mickelson might use it.Things often happen in 3s, so another calamity may be heading for Tommy. Infected tattoo, perhaps?
I hope Jerry has fire insurance . . .
Tommy needs to be introduced to Dawn Weston. She could teach him some yoga that would definitely help with his agita...
Please please PLEASE nominate this image for a worthy award!
My sentiments exactly, Tommy!Since bad things come in threes, as KitKat suggested, maybe Tommy could pick up an STD from DAWN! (which she picked up from Harlan Jones, of course ...)
@NanceInteresting thing to note: Charlie Brown's original voice actor Peter Robbins was arrested for assault, stalking and drug charges.Tommy hasn't done stalking yet, but seeing the current circumstances I wouldn't be surprised.
Wow...a sore back and a breakup, all in the same week! How will poor Tommy cope with such adversity? Moy has this uncanny ability to make us really care.
@Dimensionalotter--That news re: CB's voice actor makes me truly sad. It's right up there with the horror stories about the Our Gang/Little Rascal kid actors in its own way.Once Tommy completely unravels (strategically timed to ruin the Beedie-Weston Thanksgiving), I hope he goes into a good rehab with a great salon. After all, If You Look Good, You Feel Good.
The Peanuts comparisons are very much on the mark. I think Tommy is just frustrated that Tina pulled the football away at the last second. Again. Just like last time.
This is getting good!Karen Moy posted a Zippy the Pinhead strip with a Mary Worth appearance! Huzzah!Oh, that withering gaze!
