…when it can affect both Rex (Dr. Oblivious) and Cayla (I married Les Moore — how can it be worse?) alike.

Lovecraftian horror

Way down deep, you know there have to be reality shows that are so very, very lame that people would rather watch
(1.) televangelists,
(2.) those sad, sad ASPCA commercials with sad song accompaniment,
(3.) test patterns.

It appears that all the Good Stuff (Les writing the screenplay for Lisa’s Slog and Darrin and Darrin’s Wife having a baby) in Westview is going to start tumbling down with the reappearance of the guy who knocked up Lisa the first time around — those in the know tell me the result was Darrin.  Like I care.

Of course, the absolutely non-riveting coverage of Les’ climb to OSCAR-hood featured his sad-sack mug, undoubtedly aiding Darrin’s baby-daddy in finding these twerps.  The question is:  if nothing had been mentioned of this, would Darrin’s daddy have been able to recognize Lisa’s knight in tinfoil armor?

I don’t think it would’ve been difficult…

Bio-Dad Frank calls Bio-Son Darrin, who has no interest in Bio-Interacting with him.  Nevertheless, Related-by-Marriate Jessica feels the need to yammer, nag and push Darrin to the point of no return. (Nice, Jessica.  Really, really nice.  Then again, it’s…)

As you might expect, this being Funky Winkerbean and all, the meeting between Derwood and Bio-Dad goes badly.  Bio-dad want to make a buck from a reality show that’ll feature bastard dad (figuratively) and bastard son (literally) reuniting happily.  Dagwood doesn’t go for it, and all sorts of aspersions are cast upon reality shows (wait to get an easy victory, Batiuiuiuik!).   As Dario storms out…


Yeah. Barf.

Over in the Deep Woods, Old Man Mozz (Village Prophet and Seer) dreams of awful things coming to The Phantom (Village Idiot)! Guran (Village Medicine Man) counsels The Phantom (Village Big Purple Goober) to stay safe, close to home! The Phantom (Ghost-Who-Does-Jerky-Things) longs for Adventure!

What could possibly go wrong?

Winter Fun (as much as it possible in the Funkyverse) in Westview!

I think the guy in question is Darin’s adoptive dad, who was once the Westview High School principal.  I think Darin was Dead Lisa’s bastard child. I think all these interconnections would still fail to make an interesting movie. Or life.


Even mixing it in with two other strips for some sort of surreal trifecta doesn’t help. (In case you haven’t been following closely (just like me!), evidently gave Margo Magee a chicken milk stinkbomb as a Christmas gift, and it just detonated in one of Apartment 3-G’s closets.)

(Yes, it is now appropriate to ask “WTF?”)

…getting a lioness to walk it off, and trying to prevent impressionable teenagers from seeing a middle-aged man perform his “Happy Dance.”

Me? I’m voting for the lioness and the Big Purple Goober.
