Love Is…

You know what you two need? A little comic strip called, ‘Love Is…’ It’s about two naked eight-year-olds who are married. — Homer, “A Milhouse Divided”

Whoo boy, is this one ever bad. I guess the question is: if you had a currency machine that generated a tidy income, but you had to sit by it eight hours a day mindlessly cranking a wheel, how many years would you do it?

And, let’s say your family don’t like wheels, they like banal comic strips about Ziggy Stardust’s freakish children…

I spent thirty minutes reading these comics this morning, and my sense of sarcasm is pretty much tapped. I think you’ll get the idea without my help. Here are some highlights of the last year’s output. Keep in mind this strip has been running 6 times/week for the last forty years. Ka-ching!

  1. Love(or at least comradeship) is when the owner lets you run a bar tab AND lends you 50 bucks.

    The innocent atmosphere that “Love Is” attempts with its wide-eyed, naked protagonists is more or less burned to ashes by the fact its copyright roundup usually contains more words than the comic’s text.
