Arma Virumque Cano

It's Lockhorns Sunday, where Loretta kicks things off in Panel One in her traditional fashion, parading a visiting neighbor by Leroy as he watches TV so that she may try out the latest in her arsenal of insults, directed at her husband and in front of an audience. In Panel Two, the neighbor woman's hairstyle may have changed, but Loretta's resolve to complain about Leroy hasn't. Leroy's frustrations with automated telephone menus continue unabated in Center Panel. It's no consolation that the recorded hold music is about beer. Panel Four sees Loretta having more fun with well worn phrases, in this case a marketing slogan, which, given the lethal nature of Loretta's culinary arts, may have been intended to be taken literally. Panel Five has the Lockhorns yet again suffering untold abuse at the merciless hands of the airline industry.

Gonna go with the center panel, mainly for the rarity of the Lockhorns united, albeit fleetingly, in a mutual enterprise. Even if it is dealing with an annoying credit card problem.
