    So much for being alive.

    Rather a dark turn (apparently) for the strip.

    That thunk isn’t good. It reminds me of the eighth grade teacher at the elementary school I attended. He had a heart attack in the classroom and remained unconscious until his death six years later.

    I was afraid something might happen to Mrs. Horner. She’s a wonderful character, always positive, always ready to help and with a real passion for teaching and guiding young people having a happy future. Luann always loved her and saw her as a role model. I hope it’s not something serious, maybe she just dropped her ocarina, but there’s a chance this is something bad for her, that will shake Luann to her core, right now that she’s finally happy and full of hope.

    cue the dark ambient music with discordant overtones which, although broadly tonal, is inflected with chromatic and polytonal passages representing the archetypal example of a florid, melodramatic style without being interpreted as an overly heavy-handed metaphor within the context of the thematic material a bit on the frenetic and frantic side with interesting rhythmic devices which seem to counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor utilizing a novel imaging technique known as positron emission tomography and the spontaneous nondenominational conceptions by expansively recontextualizing liminal narratives of colonic hydrotherapy

    I’ve always wondered when G&K would kill off a long established character.

    I always thought that when that day came, it might be Mrs Horner (though I would hope it WOULD be Irma).

    But Who’s to say what went “Thunk?”

    And if it IS Mrs Horner, who’s to say she’s not faking it for a “reaction?”

    Oh by the way.

    Mrs Horner NEVER had a “bio” in the characters section.

    “When people see some things as beautiful,

    When people see some things as good,

    other things become bad.

    “Being and non-being create each other.

    Difficult and easy support each other.

    High and low depend on each other.

    Before and after follow each other.”

    She is dying, it was a great moment for her to die. Making music she loved teaching a class she loved, etc.

    This is a comic strip, so chances are she’s not dead And will be going to the hospital And maybe not teaching. They did highlight her age at the beginning of this arc… Who knows
