    I know Ed likes to back into Keesterman’s mailbox and others, but still is it wise to stand near one?

    Such Grawlix! Just because it’s in a cloud doesn’t make it acceptable.

    GRANNY: “I know that silhouette! It’s Crankshaft!” (school bus doors open) LITTLE JOHNSON GIRL: “Wait—you—you’re not Crankshaft! YOU’RE—” THANOS: “My bus driving is inevitable. Could you get on? I was rocking to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack and snapped my fingers a few times, now the bus is a little light today…I have no idea how I’m going to explain this to my boss. Little child! Grab that broom and start sweeping up the ashes!”

    The problem is that Crankshaft drives like he is SKNXXX-X when he’s behind the steering wheel.

    Well granny, step out in front of the bus and the wheels will make it the Circle of Death instead.

    I don’t recall Sir Elton John and his writing partner using “@*&%$*#” in the lyrics for the “Circle of Life.”

    “I spent years trying to make sure my daughter Amy caught Crankshaft’s bus…” No, you didn’t. Amy chased after Crankshaft’s bus. You didn’t do anything to help Amy. The old strips shown this.

    “And now here I am, trying to catch the bus with my granddaughter!” No, you’re not. Neither of you are chasing after the bus now, and you’re not trying to catch it now. None of the current strips have shown Cindy chasing after Crankshaft’s bus.

    It takes a special kind of bad to simultaneously cite your old work and get your own citations of your old work wrong. Why does Tom Batiuk do this? Why is he paid to do this?

    So we’re supposed to believe that Ed sees kids standing out on time, and just drives by? That he also hits anything that is within six feet of the road? And yet he keeps his job year after year.
