The good news, Tommy, is that after she dumps you, you still get to work together

Here's another great example of why it is so important to date a co-worker: People in the produce section can listen in and take sides.

I wouldn't be surprised if Brandy was wearing a donut on her finger, given to her by some other stockboy.

Vin's status as a KNOWN DRUGGIE produced this little instant ear worm:

Oh, who are the druggies in your neigbhorhood?
In your neigbhorhood?
They're in your neigbhorhood.
Oh, who are the druggies in your neigbhorhood?
The people that you meet each day.

Oh, Vin will always share his stash
Of pot, or meth, or crack, or hash.
But if you're trying to stay clean
You're babe is gonna make a scene.

Cause Vin is a druggie in your neighborhood,
In your neigbhorhood.
He's in your neigbhorhood.
Oh, Vin is a druggie in your neigbhorhood,
A druggie that you meet each day.

Alright. Everyone predicted that Brandy would show up and you stole all the punchlines: They have the same dealer. Vin is Brandy’s dad. Karen Moy doesn’t let statistical probability stand in the way of a predictable plot point. But Victor Hugo characters were always bumping into each other, too. Just go with it people.

I really don't care about today's strip, except that I really want to see Nance's Boldface Haiku. Also, I enjoy Lobster Man and his good example of sharing. Desperate to share, actually.

When I was a kid, I LOVED Super Elastic Bubble Plastic. It definetly IS a party for one! But it's more fun with family and friends as this commercial attests:

It's been a long time since I took French, but I believe c'mere roughly translates as, "I have always and will always love you."

This morning, Mrs. Wanders was reading over my shoulder without her glasses.

Mrs. W: Is that some kind of lobster man?

Me: No, it's a drug dealer. Tommy is about to spiral out of control. He proposed to his girlfriend with an onion ring and she rejected him.

Mrs. W: Probably because he proposed with an onion ring.

Me: No, because he is a !@#$%^& idiot.

Mrs. W: Well, you can definitely add the onion ring to the list or reasons not to marry him.

I hope that Brandy learns her lesson from all of this. It's her fault if Tommy falls off the wagon.

We were all different in the past. Tommy used to be a stupid loser:
And Brandy wasn't always white:

No, don't do that! We haven't exhausted Tommy's insecurity and sense of rejection after impulsively deciding this relationship was ready for the responsibilities and realities that come with a matrimonial contract. If Tommy wants more, babe, then give it to him. Tell him exactly why you won't marry him, and make it sting.

"Babe, I stopped having second thoughts ages ago. I'm now on eighth or twelfth thoughts... I lose track."

Yesterday, it was an old Seinfeld reference. Today, it's a rerun of the onion ring gag, which was from The Simpson's. It's been a good joke. I hope they tell it again.

The Tommy Beedie School of Slang is accepting applications through May 1, 1974.

"No, it's because you didn't say the magic word. Here's a clue. It isn't 'babe.'"

Of course he's serious. That's why he gave you an onion ring as a token of his commitment.

So, I go away for a week, and this happens? People are wearing food again, ala muffin hats? You know how we love when Mary Worth characters wear food!

It's good to be home. Mrs. Wanders and I had a very enjoyable week in the mountains, and I'm really glad she forced me to come with her. We had not realized that we were arriving in time for peak autumn colors. We had lots of rain and wind, but it seemed to come at mostly convenient times. We were still able to enjoy nightly campfires and cooking outdoors. And there were loons and it was just like On Golden Pond, if they lived in a tent. Would you like to see some pictures? I was hoping you'd say that.
