The Naked Truth: Boy, We Can See What's Left Behind
THE MORNING LINE:
The quickie roundup of today's toons, from the naked and the damned....
POMPOM AND CIRCUMSTANCE: At last, Sophie is validated, the Evil Cheerleaders From Dante's Ninth Circle are vanquished and the new social order of the high school can be heralded like some grand "Heathers" meets "Mean Girls" with a skosh of "High School Musical" epic. Can we end the Queen Bee drama now? Please? Unless, of course, Sophie now wants to take on "Luann's" clique in a knockdown dragout, which I'd pay-per-view to see. ("Molly Ringwald called, Tiffany. She wants her clothes back.")
A REAL BUTTINSKY: Time was, you only found dorsal nudity on the funnypages when the strip involved a Mischievous Lovable Scamp Up to His Usual High Jinks. Blame it on the Post-Dennis Franz Era (aka the Gratuitous PDF Period), but now we must endure derrière-baring gnomes (see: yesterday's "Frazz") and today's Lawnmower Man with the "rear bags" attachment. At least "Beetle Bailey" keeps their pants on and only talks about their bodice-baring daydreams, haha.
BECAUSE HUGH JACKMAN CAN'T ALWAYS DO BROADWAY: First off, mighty curious to note that while Wolverine has been around since more Gothic times, his preferred patter is stuck in the hardboiled film-noir years, when "that Parker dame" would predate even the birth of Spidey. Regardless, though, with all this talk of Peter Parker hitting the Great White Way for reals next year, the Official 'Riffs Question of the Day is: Who should play Spidey on Broadway? Your casting picks are invited.
Any strips you particularly cheer or jeer today? If so, then share them links.
