Comics of the Day

Worst: What bothers me about this comic is Thel's response. No parent of young children, knowing their kids were looking for back scratchers, would assume they wanted to scratch their backs. They would either say either what Thel says in the second bubble, or ask why they were looking for them. Young kids are not bound by reality, and any parent knows this. It's wrong, and it bothers me.

Runners-up: Rhymes with Orange, Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!, Speed Bump, Blondie, Tank McNamara, Beetle Bailey, Zits, Prickly City

Strips like this one demonstrate much of the genius of Get Fuzzy. The joke grows out the characters' personalities. You get some funny wordplay and nice art. It makes you chuckle because it's funny, and smile because you're rooting for Satchel.

Runners-up: Cul de Sac, Dennis the Menace, Sherman's Lagoon

Metanote: I'm going out of town this weekend, I'll probably catch up Tuesday.
