The Morning Line: The Envelope, Please, for the Riffy Awards...
Time once again, boys and girls, for the week's Riffy Awards.
1. FAVORITE BALLOON: All week, "Agnes" has featured the costumed classroom exploits of Wellness Woman. Today, Agnes's second-panel rejoinder to her teacher is: "A better question is, what are we going to do about that less-than-stellar hip to waist ratio you have going on down there?" Just goes to show: Agnes may be brave, but Wellness Woman is fearless.
2. FAVORITE WORDPLAY: The right-leaning Bucky Katt has dug his claws deep into the McCain bandwagon, leading to today's confusion between Sarah Palin and Monty Python comic Michael Palin. And the coup-de-kicker is Satchel's last-panel mangling of the famed Python film title. Huzzahs, Darb.
3. FAVORITE CULTURAL REFERENCE: In yesterday's "Speed Bump," a coupla cowboys are listening to Ennio "Spaghetti Western" Morricone on their mobile devices.
The gag was not bad, but really, we just dig Ennio Morricone.
