Friday, March 11

"An'"s: None.

Gratuitous "quotes": None.

Misspellings: One. The word is p-i-e-r-o-g-i-e-s, Lynn.

Okay, so Lovey walks in without waiting to be admitted, and brings food. If Mira did that, she'd be lynched. I wonder why the stem of the talk balloon where either Mike or Deanna greets her looks like a duodenum? And she certainly is modest: "You're so kind." "I know!"

Two velcro kids: Merrie clinging to Deanna's leg, and Robin gumming April's shoulder. Is it me, or does that kid have a really weirdly shaped head?

Funny: Usually when cartoonists age, they start drawing their strips in fewer panels. This is the third FOOB strip this week to have *five* panels instead of four. And could that fourth panel be any more crowded? No wonder Mike and Dee have to move!

Last panel? Beyond lame. Anyway, why should they have to come by when they're *ready* to sign the lease? It's in their hands; they should come by when they *have* signed it.

I wonder if we'll actually get to see the giftgra^H^H^H^H^H^shower after all.
