Thursday is the new Sunday – Rockin’ and rollin’

The Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today is one I really like. It combines a ridiculous premise, a character who knows it’s ridiculous but thinks it’s cool and the unconditional love of a parent. I think this ran on Mother’s Day so it’s almost an  extreme version of a child cooking an awful breakfast for his mom and the mom choking it down anyway.

“Your mom must be so proud” is a line I’ve been using maybe since high school when confronted with a doofus doing something doofy that they are absolutely thrilled with.

The drop panel above is a bit subtle, maybe too subtle. Think cats’ tails and the propensity for them to get pinched by smaller versions of the object in the strip.
