Don't write to the Lynnions. Write to the syndicate.

Some people contacted the Lynnions last summer, after "WAIT FOR ME!!", and got either no response, or a brushoff. Don't waste your time doing that again. Lynn doesn't care what we think, and neither does her crew. It's the syndicate you want to complain to. They're interested in the bottom line, and they're not Lovey: if someone has a problem with Lynn, they're not going to fling up their hands and say, "Oy! Such readers; why don't they go live in the woods!"

So. Snail mail is best:
Universal Press Syndicate
4520 Main Street
Kansas City, MO 64111-7701

Print syndication:
Lee Salem, Executive Vice President and Editor
Universal Press Syndicate
4520 Main Street
Kansas City, MO 64111-7701
lsalem@amuniversal.com

Anyone you can get in on this is okay. Spread the word far and wide; I bet there are more anti-Granthony people than the Lynnions could have imagined! But, when you do write to the syndicate, please don't link to this site. Ever since the icon hammer came down, I've been dreading every day that I'll log on and find this entire blog wiped out.

And while you're at it, check out this http://www.entercomcanada.com/index_two.php that I found while double-checking to make sure it was UPS that syndicates the strip.

Panel 1: "...so let's have lunch/drive around/find a motel!" Wow, they really keep us guessing!

Panel 2: Now, if this were TV, we'd KNOW they'd never get to the back porch or the kitchen once they were inside the house. The Lynnions have to "leave things to our imagination," though, or worse, have setups with no resolution. All I know is, there's a red warning light between them. And I hardly think Granthony physically did the work on the house. So he must have hired it done, which is proof that not everyone under 30 has to live in a crackerbox apartment.

Panel 3: Amazing; everything's amazing. I don't know what Liz is doing with her arms, but I will say that she could accomplish more if she would, y'know, finish what she starts. But notice how having a baby is one of the accomplishments. And Granthony doesn't miss the way her skirt is riding up.

Panel 4: JUST. GET. IT. OVER. WITH.
