Curtis: I just bought this matching blouse and flip-flop ensemble!

This is a particularly clever way of solving the ever-present foot problem. If your characters are supposed to have ugly feet, it completely frees you from having to draw non-ugly feet. Agnes called attention to this just a little while ago. Curtis takes it a step further here by crafting an entire storyline around it.

The only odd thing about it is that Ray Billingsly actually draws pretty decent looking feet, so it's not so much a way to cover up an artistic deficiency as just an idea he had for a story. But hopefully some other cartoonists *cough*MortWalkerInc.*cough* will take note and borrow liberally.
