Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night


We see the Lockhorns grocery shopping in Panel One, where Loretta recites the obligatory pun about twittering which compares the word to the derogatory "twit;" nothing is too cliched when it comes to insulting Leroy in public. Panel Two has my vote, as we see vintage D. Pullman at his sardonic best. Leroy in Center Panel gets in a rare riposte amidst the usual salvo of nagging barbs from Loretta, as he extols the benefits of the famous La-Z-Boy recliner chair. It's perfectly logical that Loretta feels compelled to hide the cookies in Panel Four since by default they are the only thing edible in the house. In Panel Five, despite the bored mien of the neighbor, Leroy may not be exaggerating by all that much, as trees probably are, in some innate manner, aware of when road menace Loretta is behind the wheel.

Pulled a double vote, myself, for Panels 2 & 4. Fun stuff this week, indeed!

Wings: You chose a couple of winners. Now you know why multiple votes are always allowed here.
