Where Have You Gone, Albert Camus?


Feel free to vote for your favorite Sunday Lockhorns cartoon(s). In Panel One, amidst an olive green backdrop, Loretta skillfully comments on Leroy's deplorable sense of fashion. Leroy will no doubt take her suggestion literally, so it would be interesting to see what he comes up with.

In Panel Two, the Levittown cocktail party scene takes place within a strikingly orange venue. Loretta holds her requisite plate with two Spanish olives, and livens things up with a clever comment on Leroy's state of inebriation. This fails to impress Loretta's woman acquaintance.

Leroy's in big trouble in Center Panel. The worst offense I can think of is Leroy canceling one of his credit cards.

In Panel Four we see Leroy and Loretta engaged in one of the many hobbies they share. Leroy's ineptness at these hobbies is magnified by the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.

In Panel Five, the Lockhorns engage in their favorite pastime amidst bright yellow surroundings. You can tell their relationship is on the ups when they insult the television programming instead of each other.

I was torn today. The first panel makes me immediately wonder if Leroy has a noose in his closet, as that would be the best accessory to "go with" Loretta.

But the center panel is something great, too. Loretta is steaming, one hand clenched into a fist. Watch out, Leroy!

Also, in the orange panel, that woman is another mannequin, I swear. Look at that vacant stare! Of course, she IS talking to Loretta...

Hey - I used this blog for my Sunday Funny today. I hope you get some followers, as you (and Leroy) deserve it!

Wings: Hey, I'm torn every Sunday. How can you choose? I gotta go along with you on that center panel, though.

Your mannequin theory is completely plausible. Maybe they're stage props. The Lockhorns is a lot like theater, after all.

I'm heading straight over for Caffeinated Joe's Sunday Funny right now. Thank you many times over for spreading the Word of Leroy.
