Doesn’t America NEED to go on a diet, though? *rimshot*

Hi and Lois, 5/18/09
Ha ha ha, that’s so not funny and true because of the state of the economy today, and there is a metaphor for fatness and chronic dieting, blah blah blah et cetera whatever. With that out of the way, I’ll have you know that I’m not really paying attention to the content of this comic as much as I am the comic itself, if you get my drift. You don’t? Well… look at them. Hideous. Their hands seem to have been sucked up by their armpits. Hi’s foot is twice as big as his head. And, fer reals, who has a den laid out like this, with the couch placed at an angle in front of the window, and a flat screen TV in the dead center of the room? And black carpeting? What were they thinking?
Okay, I will briefly discuss the content. Briefly. We all know that comics are written approximately five thousand years before they are published, so often by the time they get to the paper they could be dealing with old or outdated news. Here we have that very case: gas prices in the last two weeks have jumped back up to two-fifty-ish in my neck of the woods. That could be a sign that Americans are now consuming more fuel, I guess, but after some in-depth research (sort of) I was unable to find any data on current national fuel consumption. I was hoping for a graph or something. I really enjoy graphs.*
But anyhoozle. The point is that today’s comic is fantastically lazy. And so am I. So I am now done.
*I tried very hard to find the clip from How I Met Your Mother in which Marshall shows a pie chart of his favorite bars followed by a bar graph of his favorite pies. I thought that would be somewhat relevant. Unfortunately, my search was fruitless. So I’ll have to leave you with this.
