#1LinerWeds from The Comics Curmudgeon

Sorry, comics creators carefully working on the perfect setup-punchline combination: nothing in the funny pages this week will possibly make me laugh more than “That music! Is it ‘Tubthumping’ by Chumbawamba?”

I started reading Josh Fruhlinger’s comics blog The Comics Curmudgeon several years ago. He reads the comics every day, especially the legacy strips (Beetle Bailey, Hi and Lois, Mary Worth, Dick Tracy, etc.), finds several strips about which he can make pithy comments, and publishes both the strip and his comments on his blog, where his fans make equally pithy comments. At the end of each week, Josh selects the comments that made him laugh the hardest and makes one of them the Comment of the Week. This remark was prompted by Dick Tracy the other day.

When you go to visit, spend some time there. You’ll either enjoy yourself or be highly offended.

One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now, a word from our sponsors.
