Thursday is the new Sunday – e-eating

bo010806elecplacemtcl

I remember coming up with the gag for the Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com while dining at a local diner. (Fascinating story, huh?) And it gave me the chance to use one of Bo’s few ongoing jobs – working in a restaurant, which I did in college. (Wow. Yet another fascinating story. That’s two for today.)

Do you catch the goof? Take a peek and see if you can find it. I’ll wait.

Are you back? Did you spot it? In the second panel the pointer for Bo’s word balloon is pointing to the other guy.

As for the drop panel above, I wonder who came up with the iconic lightening bolt design?

    I really had to look to find the goof (after you pointed it out). Don’t you come up with the ideas for the drop panels? And as long as I’m asking questions, how come the years aren’t added in the dates written in comic strips? I see this one was 1/8 but I can rarely make out the copyright dates. I wrote down that this strip ended 7/28/07, and I’m curious how close before I get to see how the strip started.

    I do indeed come up with the ideas for the drop panels.

    I think the reason why years weren’t ever written in as part of the date is that comic strips never reran (is that a word?). The ones on Gocomics.com right now are from 2006, so it’s about a year and a half from starting from the beginning. (The first strip was May 11, 2003.)

    WARNING! SHILLING OF MY OWN STUFF! If you don’t want to wait 1 1/2 years, the “Monkey Meets World” book has the first nine months of strips. There’s a link on the main page.
