Yep, you guessed it. It’s yet another probably-never-seen drop panel. This one is for the Sunday strip rerunning today on Gocomics.com. And it’s probably better that it was unseen – I haven’t the slightest idea why the stethoscope is going up. I think it might have something with reversing the way stethoscopes usually hang, which is down. Dumb, really.
As for the strip, I realized thatrecently I described another Sunday strip as being one of only two Sundays that Mr. Bench appeared in. Well, it’s three. I’d forgotten about this one.
Also the set-up is funnier than the punchline, but it doesn’t really work as an ending.
