Comics of the Day
Worst: Mutts lives and dies on its cuteness, which leaves it constantly walking a fine line. Some days it's cute, and it is a good strip. Some days it veers into overly cute, and it's a bad strip. Some days it's not cute at all, and it's just a waste of space. Friday was one of those days.
Runners-up: Brevity, Hagar the Horrible, Mother Goose and Grimm, Red and Rover, Rhymes with Orange
Men think about sex a lot, and this one of the standard tropes of comedy. What I liked about this strip is the subtlety of that reference.
