To Have And Have Not


Lockhorns Sunday. D. Pullman, the Lockhorns' marriage counselor, really has his hands full in Panel One, which has to get my vote. Only Leroy and Loretta could complicate a corny exercise such as "trust falls" by incorporating the childrens' playground standard of rock, scissors, paper. Leroy ogles a blonde bimbo over in the next alley in Panel Two while out bowling with Loretta. Instead of resorting to violence, Loretta assaults Leroy with an awful pun. In Center Panel, Loretta lays out an ultimatum for Leroy, who has tried to weasel out of buying Loretta a fur coat by pretending to be an animal rights activist. Her threat cannot carry much weight, since it is impossible to tell whatever it is Loretta prepares in the kitchen since it's all inedible anyway. In Panel Four, Leroy is feeling old as he strains mightily to rake leaves in the front yard. In Panel Five, Leroy has a long wait in queue at the DMV, and figures that the wait will chew up the time he would otherwise spend cooling his heels in Dr. H. Blog's waiting room.

Wings: Good call, amigo! To think, D. Pullman gets $175 an hour and he comes up with that lame schtick?
