Turn gay! Turn polygamist! Turn Hare Krisha! Just don’t take Wilbutt back!

Several readers hope that Dr. Ed makes a n appearance, further making Wilbutt wish he were dead. Well, you can always hope… (and thanks to 9CL, which finally has a use for its male anatomy, if nothing else):

Well, it seems that Estelle (or “Stell,” so she doesn’t have to remember both syllables in her name, is going to take the bastard back:

And today’s strip didn’t even merit a whole snark, just a panel (thanks to the curmudgeon who suggested the escape route):

Things aren’t so bad for Libby after all, after some folks fearing the worst for her (and Moy’s lack of clarity with the human…or English, language). Who the hell cares about Stell and Wilbutt anyway?

Mabe a workable solution can be…ah…worked out.

Or maybe the critters can work things out for themselves, and to hell with the humans…

Nah, I guess people need to be involved. At least one of them.

Believe it or don’r…Wilbutt sees the light!!!

And into every life (or Wilbutt’s life 24/7) a little rain must fall:

…and I’m doing you a favor. This prologue devolves into a talky-talky borefest. Be happy with this little bit, and go read something betters.

Strangely enough, BMacE swerves and spends some time with Edda and what is supposedly her spawn. The spawn has decided their mother is neither human nor mammal, but a chick.

And this was actually quite sweet, but nothing that can’t be snarked on.

Yeah, mystifying.

Do you want to see something really scary?

And now we’re in the middle of a Thorax-in-WWII story, doing sexy things. My gorge rises…

This is the result of a dream/hallucination/overdose of Seth’s that caused him to come dangerously close to making the Right weep with joy, due to his heterosexual feelings and actions with an old dance partner. Sure, he’d burn in Hell for fornicating with the woman, but it was a WOMAN, dammit! I have no idea why Edda shows up, either.
Honestly, I have no idea what was going on. I mostly just looked at the pictures.

Yuck? Really?

It looks like Seth is considering that awful, awful heterosexuality with the ex-ballerina Fernanda…

Then again, maybe not…

Welp, it seems that everyone believes big gay ol’ Seth is going to marry Fernanda. At least if you hear it from gay Uncle Mark and the Creepy Twins…

During this Seth and Fernanda wet dream (or whatever it is), someone at the Readers of the Comics Curmudgeon suggested Seth’s ex, Mark, hook up with Garbage Ape. I guess both of them could do worse. I guess.

…I have NO idea what a “Homeric tip” is. Considering this skank has been masturbating on and over the back of the booth shared by that nerd Amos (and simultaneously with her boyfriend in her own booth, too), I can only imagine the obvious Homeric tip…

This week has been especially stupid (there. I said it.) It was only salvaged by folks cutting off the last panel of the Friday strip (yes, it was that stupid) and someone commenting that it would’ve been improved, had Amos farted.
So I tried that, and yes, it worked! Thanks to Pat F. and Ed H.!

I’m fairly sure 9 Chickweed Lane could be distributed in high school Sex Education classes as a deterrent…

The little bistro so near home is really a hot spot. Or maybe it’s just a cheap rendezvous place, away from the kids.

Can’t the restaurant get a restraining order or something?

A distasteful semi-privatePDA involved Edda and Amos (and a mango, apparently) in front of their twins, but that seems to be a thing of the past, or yesterday, or something…

Wait, there’s more!

…and the self-absorbe people who live there. Amos and Edda have been shamelessly flirting…

Weeks later, still flirting (read, talking and talking and talking…).

…even if we’re not too sure that there really ARE twins…or if you have them…or if you’re really married…

And to make matters worse: it’s official…Brooke McEldowney has run out of ideas.

And Amos and Edda still have about the squinkiest (not necessarily in a good way) strip in the comics! Some things never change.
(And all I did was change the words in the last panel.)
(But I wonder what is happening in Panel 3 that is making Amos’ myopic eyes bug out…)

Ah, the two lovebirds (I think they’re called “twits”) go on. and on. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end…

And when you just can’t take a cartoonist (or artist. or Artiste.) drawing any more writhing undulations drolleries of his nymph of a daughter the two main characters in his strip, you may as well launch her into another strip (Take two opttions — Mark’s tough, he ca take it!

…that’s what the current storyline in 9 Chickweed Lane is not.  Even with Nazis, it isn’t interesting.

But admit it…you went and saw all the Indiana Jones movies, didn’t you? Even the one with “Skull” in the title? You know, with Shia Leboeuf?  Get a clue, BMcE…
