What’s going on in the current plot of Funky Winkerbean is too long and boring to tell here (yay), so let’s just go with Funky attempting to call former President Clinton (based on a brief whistle-stop 20+ years ago) and ask him for his political influence regarding a foreign national currently living and working in Funkytown.
Yep, that about covers it.

…just be honest, okay? We won’t judge.

(This also makes amends for misspelling the late Ray Kroc’s name…)

Although the artist is honestly selling beautiful, downtown Santa Royale short; just ask any resident:

Yeah, like Tommy’s in any mood to have a conversation.

Tommy meets up with Vin, an old friend from the “Royale”. What could possibly go wrong?

…I thought I could hold off on snarking the new MT (aka, “Marque Nuevo”) for at least a week, but Bill Ellis STARTED IT FIRST, asking Mark about his face. Didn’t your mama teach you any manners, Bill?

The Sunday MT is still in Jack Elrod reruns (YAY!), featuring a chipmunk preparing for winter. Sharp-eyed John Long saw Chippie stashing its very own Jack Elrod ball and I noticed that the clever little guy had acquired a rare James Allen ball, too!

Woods ‘n’ Wildlife purchased by the megacorporation?!?? What’s next? Conde Nast taking over the rest of the magazines on earth?

…maybe the new Mark Trail will lend itself to it.

…or something like that. I’m trying not to pass judgment on it in the first week. If I do, well, aren’t you special?

There’s all sorts of opiniones flying — good, bad, and indifferent. But, hey! Here’s a panel I can work with!

Jeffy has plans. Big plans.

The eternal question. And Big Daddy Bill, with the eternal answer:

…snark on a different comic!

…and/or snark on a much better one!

…and, of course, a typical, crappier one.

A recent Pluggers was okay (nothing really snark-worthy), other than my CC buddy Joe F. had to tell everyone that the contributor for that day’s Plugger was his brother-law! As though folks weren’t going to razz him on being related to a Plugger (manbear? bearman?). Or to finally snark it up, Celebrity Style! (Hi, Joe!)
