Morning Line: When 'Cul de Sac' Meets 'Office Space'
Looking at today's "Cul de Sac" and the bespangled backpack of Viola, we have only one pervading observation:
You know "Office Space," in which the chain-restaurant workers are required to wear pieces of "flair"? (Even if you haven't seen the Mike Judge film, surely you've seen the multi-pin suspenders on the stripe-happy workers at your local TGIFriday's or similar tschotschke-laden eatery.)
Well, Viola -- when she grows up -- will surely be that worker who willfully, happily dons 37 pieces of flair. And for that personality type, "Petey Potterpoop" is rightfully wary. Hang in there, Peter. And in 10 years, may we recommend Pizza Hut instead for quick greasy eats.
EYES WIDE SHUTTERED: Oh, how we wish today's "Family Circus" were a two-panel affair, because we're just waiting to see the visual -- as Dolly rolls her eyes back into her head like some sort of Cartoon Child of Exorcism. And our motto becomes: "Don't laugh till you see the whites of her eyes."
EIGHT SECONDS OVER TOKYO: Guiltily, a bit ashamedly, I laughed. Aloud. What can I say: I just didn't see it coming.
