If Those I Loved Were Lost


It's Lockhorns Sunday! Panel One affords us a glimpse of the interior of the Lockhorns' refrigerator, rather sparsely stocked today except for an ample supply of Leroy's beer. Loretta is no doubt familiar with the routine where Leroy imbibes heavily in the hopes of drowning out her incessant nagging. Panel Two allows us to witness first hand Loretta's delusional tendencies. We already know she considers herself witty and talented, which is bad enough, but now we see she also thinks she's beautiful, at least in comparison to Leroy. Center Panel brings us to Leroy's personal arena, where he is continually at war with all agencies, companies, businesses, and institutions with which he deals every day, in this case the USPS. Panel Four gives us a bird's eye view of Loretta's hopelessly inept driving skills on display. That's a tight squeeze even for a skilled driver, so Leroy would be better off parking the vehicle himself instead of trying to impart upon Loretta an impromptu geometry lesson. Nonetheless, this panel gets my vote, but it was a close call, as Panel Five shows us that Leroy apparently subscribes to the handyman's mantra, "If it moves when it ain't supposed to, apply duct tape," and probably its corollary, "If it don't move when it should, apply WD-40," as well.

I had to go with panel 2. She is flipping deluded! And from Leroy's eyes, you can tell he is realizing just how deluded she really is.

Wings: Yes, Leroy's expression says it all. Good choice.
