    This was today's strip.


    This is funny? I can't believe cash-strapped papers pay for crap like this.

    I was responsible for dumping Snuffy Smith when I was an editor.

    It's stupid as hell. And because of that, it's (unintentionally) funny.

    It's the same reason Nancy was/is an absolute riot.

    Give the guy a break. He's been in the Army since 1950 and he's still a private. Being funny is the least of his worries.

    Sluggo probably goes to Japan twice a year as a schoolgirl fetish sex tourist.

    He does get to bang Miss Buxley on occasion, though. That's gotta count for something.

    Every Penthouse Forum or similar story I read that was set in the military, I always pictured Beetle Bailey in the lead role for some reason.

    Nah, that action is only for Gen. Halftrack.

    Are you saying this because Beetle Bailey debuted 63 years ago tomorrow and his creator turns 90 today?

    There was a career Pfc. in the town in which I grew up. Served 20 years, I think.
