He better treat his mom good ?
Beautiful women belong to someone else, just like beautiful cars, eh? Someone needs to have a chat with Michael about his antiquated idea of women being owned.
Fancy car isn’t kept in the garage?
Sport cars do not have a mind of there own women do and you can not own a person
Perhaps Rhetta will ask him for a ride home tonight?
Not the best drawings today…
These comics converted to color is amazing. Who would have guessed when this was just plain black and white – https://www.gocomics.com/forbetterorforworse/1993/07/24 – that this sports car was going to be colored red? I had thought that it was a white car!
When we picked up our new, bright red, Dodge Challenger, my wife was sceptical; but she admits to enjoying the questions she gets from men aged 8 to 80.
In today’s world, I would have rewritten the last panel. Women don’t “belong” to anyone!
Mothers can be like cars… the older they get….Nevermind
You can see how old this strip is; nowadays women do not “belong” to anyone!!
“Look after her… She’s my sister, after all”…
A bit sexist, about women ‘belonging’ to other men. But, still, it is a cartoon, wise and funny.
The main difference between a beautiful woman and a beautiful car is the cost of maintenance on the car is a lot less.
He didn’t mean it in the way people are saying on here. I guess the way the words are in English are always interpreted different. He meant it in a way that if you are unlucky guy like me, other men have the beautiful women and he doesn’t. There is no ownership. If you were married both of you belong to each other. You wear a wedding ring for a reason. I don’t think anybody wants their spouse to cheat on them, but in today’s world I don’t think it matters anymore. It is all how you word and interpret. I didn’t take it in a bad way.
If the law requires family to send their children to government-run schools (i.e. “public” school) under threat of fines or imprisonment, does that mean that children “belong” to the government?
Michael is not thinking this through. He needs to watch Scarface, and Tony Montana will tell him the checklist to getting Rhetta:
“First, you need to get the money.”
“Once you get the money, then you get the power.”
“When you have the power, then you get the woman.”
The problem that I have with sport cars is their size. I’m 6’4". And getting in isn’t too bad. But adjusting the seat all the way back and lean backwards so I can see out of the top two inches of the windscreen in a bit of a pain. But my real problem is getting out of something which has me sitting about 4 inches above the pavement and my legs seeming half way up into the engine compartment. As I said, I’m 6’4" and sliding out of those is a bit of a problem.
I tried asking a car on a date but it didn’t end well.
That’s how I felt when I got my first Corvette.
That was sad!
