And thus ends this year's Kwanzaa-Curtis. On the plus side, I actually understand the moral of this year's story (as opposed to last year's). I also enjoyed the inclusion the mythologically traditional trickster character. And I'm glad the dog came back to life, because I'm a sucker for happy endings.
On the other hand, the lack of COMPLETELY INSANE SHIT was a pretty big disappointment. If a talking yellow mouse was the wildest part of Kwanzaa-Curtis, then it just hasn't been a very exciting Kwanzaa-Curtis. It also seemed a bit shorter than usual.
In any event, I look forward to next year, when I will almost certainly became VERY, VERY EXCITED about it for no discernible reason again.

This comic is hilarious because John is planning to cannibalize his wife.
In all seriousness, reading through For Better or For Worse reruns, I'm struck by what a gigantic asshole John is most of the time. As I recall, this--like pretty much everything else in the strip--would mellow out over time, but I kind of hate him now.
Given the evidence Mark has here--Ben is using large, lightweight lures--diamond smuggling really is the obvious conclusion.

Fucking feminists, with their "no dehumanizing objectification or sexual harassment of coworkers" nonsense, am I right?

And this is why you never open the door for Marmaduke, OK kids?
Given that Andrew has already managed to destroy humanity (with the exception of himself and big-eyed, time-traveling Lila here), I'm curious as to what sort of idea would still qualify as risky.
After a long break, Better Half has returned to its always cogent global warming commentary.

I'm not sure I like where this is going...
Somehow, this is even worse.
