The Morning Line: Losing All Perspective
Quick riffs on today's toons...
Perspective and proportions are so staggeringly askew in "BB" today, we can say with almost absolute certainty that Mort Walker himself did not personally draw this comic. Heck, it's so insanely off, we don't think Mort Kondracke could have drawn this comic. (Either the desk is doll-house size or the woman is the tallest character every to appear in the strip. Oh, where to begin?) We smell an uncredited ghost-artist: the same master draftsman who "draws" Gil Thorp. (And oh, how we fear we've just unleashed either the hounds of hell or the Official Gil Thorp Facebook Group.)
Early candidate for best/worst pun o' the week. So adorably cute, we're half-tempted to needlepoint it onto a tea cozy.
"Not a Moose," oddly, are the exact misheard words a friend used to belt out whenever Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" came on the car radio, "Wayne's World"-style: "Not a moose / Not a moose / Can you do the fandango?!" (Now try getting Freddie Mercury's vocal pyrotechnics outta your head...)
Which of today's toons do you like, love or loathe -- or laugh at despite yourself? Our "Line" is open...
