    A genuinely clever bit once in a while can be funny to me (ref. the internet audience in Nancy’s closet), but I think Jaimes sometimes uses the fourth wall as a substitute for a punchline instead of actually making a punchline out of it.

    Or maybe I was just born a decade too early to appreciate the inherent brilliance of the meta-joke.

    Zero days to complaints about Nancy not being funny.

    Timing is, of course, everything in comedy.

    My only complaint is the awkward. inconsistent spacing of the font Ms. Jaimes uses. As in panel 5, some letters within words are spaced nearly the same as between actual words. For me anyhow, whenever the text is a stumbling block, the inevitable joke is weakened. :-(

    Rates a solid 3 on the “Smile-O-Meter.”

    I enjoy the shifting background colors. Lighter purple for happy, darker for sad, and grey for neutral.

    Ah, the Achilles of joy’s always futile pursuit of the tortoise of gloom.

    I love it when comics break the fourth wall.
