Happy Confederate Memorial Day!
Posted by The Author on May 11, 2009
I have to leave for work in a little less than an hour* so for now I am just going to cover the weekend strips and take on today’s later. If you can’t wait that long (and honestly, when it comes to H&L, who can wait?) check out Josh’s wise observations in today’s CC post. I assure you, my own snark will be just as amazing (I hope).
Without further ado: Teh Muvvers’ Day Comix!

Funny; this is what my mom usually wants for Mother’s Day, too. I mean, except with her own kids, not Lois’s. Or maybe both; I’m not sure.

Nothin’ like taking a three-panel comic and spreading it thin over the Sunday format! Well, at least this way we have more of a chance to admire the artwork and the strange goings-on inside this Connecticut diner. Would I want to eat breakfast with this family? Sadly, no. Chip is listening to his Walkman (trust me, it’s a Walkman, not a new-fangled iPod — unless someone doesn’t know how to depict one) while Ditto solicits the baseball apparel-clad youth in the next booth (I still haven’t found any kids with that level of enthusiasm for baseball — are comics children a different breed?) and Hi raises the kids’ hopes for a fantastic homemade breakfast that will never come, thowing them into a state of shock, like Dot in the second-to-last panel. You know why you never get this at home, Chip? Because Mother is dead tired by nine AM and all she can manage to do it throw a couple of bowls of cereal on the table and call it a day. Four children?! What was she thinking?!
Anyhoozle. Whilst I enjoy breakfast out on occasion, I don’t think I’d do it on Mother’s Day morning. What is it about Mother’s Day and breakfast/brunch? Why isn’t it traditionally a drinking holiday? I have so many questions, but alas, I must leave you. Happy Belated You-Know-What Day. I love you, O Mother of Mine.
*Take a shot every time I mention that I have a job now!
