Okay, so I read today's Hi and Lois online. Here are some of my thoughts.
a) Is it healthy for a 40 something woman of that height to be 98 lbs? NO.
b) Why is this show-off bitch proclaiming to our stressed-out women her unhealthy weight?
c) Where is Irma plugged in? Maybe it makes sense to actually walk instead of wasting the small amount of money you have. Perhaps that money can be saved....or spent on a landscaper (if you are so inclined to spend), because gee whiz! Your backyard needs to be mowed! AGAIN! LOL!!!! That gag just never gets old!
d) Is it Depends day at this generic "Fitness Center?" Irma seems to be sporting this lovely adult diaper too. Is it in fashion in Hi and Lois-ville? I thought characters weren't supposed to show age in these types of strips. But wow, think about it.....Hi and Lois tackles the subjects of BDSM, Anorexia, teen hormones, SUV gas emmisions, AND incontenence. To quote They'll do it Every Time:
Who'da thunk it. Translation: Who would have thought that such a topical strip could deal with such important world issues!
e) "Show-off bitch" seems to be driving away...but how did she get into the car? There's a pickle where the handle should be!!! Hahah!! And her face completely vanished.
Those are my main nitpicks and observations.
And according to Bil Keane, holding a piece of sporting equipment the wrong way is comic strip worthy. When it's a young child holding the object it's automatically "Precious and adorable" in the eyes of America's grandmothers.
Here is my version:
