Blondie: I sure appreciate this little favor, Herb.

A few notes on this Sunday edition of Blondie:
  1. Why does Herb always have to pee? Doesn't he watch Wheel of Fortune?* Hasn't he seen all those Flomax ads?
  2. What naturalistic exposition!**
  3. Why does Dagwood keep asking Herb to do him favors? Why does Dagwood even consider Herb a friend? Herb is a terrible person.
  4. Ha! Men! They can't ever remember things that are important to their loved ones!
*This is Blondie. Of course he watches Wheel of Fortune.

**Not really!

  1. #2: THANK YOU! And as happens so often, totally unnecessary. The dialogue in panel 5 explains it PERFECTLY. Are people reading this strip really going to see the first three panels, and go, "huh, he's got a vase, he doesn't usually have a vase, I can't understand this strip at all, so I'm going to stop reading now"??
