Les is still hawking those books that should’ve been remaindered years ago, but the public loves it…

Why? because it’s a free signing! Maybe there’ll be cookies!

Then again, no cookie is worth this…

Les is just phoning it in, and the bookstore owners have closed for the night…

(Who wants to bet that some of the audience is pooling their loose change to dry-gulch Les?)

And here is what/who appears to be Les’ Number 1 Fan!

After a week of this drivel, one could ask philosophical questions…

But, hey…anything to push Jeffy into years of therapy:

And it’s not just Jeffy who’s the mental midget in the Kean Klan…

And we’re going neck-and-neck between Jeffy and Billy in “who’s the bigger moron?” derby…

Sigh… Dolly Keane may be the smartest one of the Klan…

Mommy and Daddy getting fed up with the froots of their loins? You bet!

Really, it could be anyone at the front door…Fuller Brushmen, Mormon missionaries…

Comics Kingdom has ceased to function, Mary and all the ancillary characters in the strip are dead, and Moy reigns supreme!

This was actually a two-panel weekday strip that I only figured out how the mash the second (below) once I’d finished with the first (above):

The 40-day, 40-night storm continues, along with this interminable storyline. Hope yer likin’ it, kids!

And then Max runs off! with the open door, the lightning, the thunder…whoda thunk it?!??

I TOLD you to watch your step, Saul!

And just when you think your special little dog can do superhuman (or supercanine) things…

Saul and Eve continue their evening together. It goes on and on. And on and on. And on and on…

Eve continues her long story about her awful marriage to her awful husband Gary; could things get any worse?

I guess so! Gary shooting the dog was a real kerfuffle in toonland (read, a lot of people were really pissed off at Moy’s lack-of-storytelling abilities). At least she made up for it the next day, showing that the innocent were saved…

Yay! Back to the boredom that is a date with eve and Saul…

While their patient dogs wait patiently. Patiently. Patiently…
all the prove the point that animals are dumb.

Could all this pointless yammering herald the end of this pointless storyline?

…and Buck’s missing it entirely (a tRump-style lunch at the local greasy spoon can’t hurt, can it?)

Boy, howdy, Beatty is foisting off all the writing work on Rex’s mythical, no-talent daughter Sarah…

Another week, and the creators of this comic STILL can’t come up with anything funny/amusing/less obvious….

All the Sarah fantasizing and pandemic in Morganville is over, and the usual ennui is back in place…

Yet, Rex does his best to make Big Plans…

We’re now investigating the world of graphic art book publishing (read, $$$ comic books), and even its creators can have writers’ blocks…

Which explains the ongoing coin shortage in the U.S.

And it’s not like we all don’t forget things from time to time…

Nicely done, contributor…makes the snark good and easy!!

Mostly a “true fact,”especially this time of year…

And when the weather’s a little better, one can always chat the morning away…

When today’s “Pluggers” considered discussions about one’s various health concerns as an “organ recital,” your truly felt that it didn’t go far enough…

Another eon of Saul and Eve going on walkies…how dangerous could it be?

Plenty dangerous, if you ask me. Saul offers solace. Within reason.

The wretched 20-year-long marriage of Eve finally comes out…and that her awful husband died (yeah, right).

But let’s live for today! And Eve starts out by inviting Saul and Greta over for dinner!

After dinner, Eve opens up a little more to Saul (poor Saul!).

And even more opening up…

Good lord….will the opening up never end?!??

…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.
