By Michael Cavna

The quickie a.m. roundup of today's toons, from all the major food groups...

'AGNES' (Creators)Enlarge Image

FAVE BALLOON OF THE DAY: Something about Agnes using "odd meats" as a grand metaphor is so bizarrely bold, it's to be applauded. Though I'll never eat lunch in this strip again...

'FRAZZ' (UFS)Enlarge Image

FAVE M.I.A. STRIP: Hankering from your daily "Frazz" just because it's gone AWOL from your Saturday Post? Well, this one's for you...

'JUDGE PARKER' (NAS)Enlarge Image

MOST CURIOUS: After what feels like months -- and too many moons -- of this Evil Cheerleader Mom storyline, I've nearly forgotten: WHO are we supposed to be rooting for in this big, sloppy melodrama? At some point, I just don't feel compelled to root for some dude who breeds Arabians...


FAVE VISUAL: Because sometimes, when life gives you lemons, make --- well, make a call to your attorney, 'cause you're only chance at leaving the casino ahead is by a juicy settlement. Then again, the House always wins, soo...

another favorite today - In the Bleachers

No comments on yesterday's Big Nate use of the phrase "total cougar"? I'm glad that one strip didn't get put on KidsPost.

If you are only running five Frazz's a week, how come the rest aren't available from the online page?

And the Big Nate use of 'cougar' is totally wrong. Because Nate thinks she's hot, that makes her a MILF. The mom is not a cougar until she makes a move on Nate.

Frazz deserves better coverage. There's a whole additional thread on his homepage.
