Anyone care to do the calculations for how long Nancy made Sluggo wait?
You can assume the window is .5m from the ground and the house is at 44.5 degrees north of the equator.
Um…slow and steady win the race?
I like to think Sluggo’s expression shows that he knows exactly what is happening but is powerless to prevent it.
Well that’s a funny gag which all depends on whoever X was (Sluggo) missed the opportunity of making 3 in a row with the third X.
Finally a Nancy comic…
Sluggo has only himself to blame as he could have won with his third x.
Also, I believe because the sun’s angle only changes in one direction, getting lower in the sky as the day progresses, the house is sitting on the equator with the window facing west and it is either the spring or fall equinox.
A good gag, why overthink it?
What will Aunt Fritzi say when she sees ink marks on the carpet?!?
An exquisite use of “paper cutouts”.
I’m such a superficial reader. I was wondering how she whited out Sluggo’s "x"s. Where’s her white color bar? : )
At speech meets, we often had to wait around in rooms with blackboards, so we’d put up grid of four 4×4s and play 3D tic-tac-toe. Later on, it was as convenient to play it on paper, or to use my magnetic chess set, which has the required number of squares.
Pull the shade, Slug- …oh, she was ready for that one.
“Revenge is a dish best served COLD…”
What’s that? No one was getting revenge? What’s that? They were sitting close to sunlight in summer, so nothing would be cold? What’s that? Referencing famous movie quotes is not a substitute for a clever comment that focuses on the strip itself?
I’ll see myself out. (Hope those markers aren’t permanent.)
Don’t fall asleep, Nancy. Sluggo may then be tempted to draw X’s in Permanent Marker, ALL OVER YOUR FACE !!
Nancy, you cheater!
Rage, rage against the passage of the light!
A clever and silent punchline. I’m impressed
