    As I said bellow it was a sign of the times. Dosen’t make it.. great in hindsight, but this being the mid 90s stalking wasn’t taken as seriously and there were plenty of stories like this. He’s a middle schooler raise din said times written by someone whose not only writing for those times.. but was often behind them (Not that I don’t like Lynn but her old fashioned thinking in places did show a lot)

    It was sadly part of the times: Keep in mind this came out in the mid 90s, when you couldn’t do that and when Stalking, while known as a thing, wasn’t taken as seriously and a boy doing this was seen as “cute”. It’s also why i’m not too hard on Anthony here: If the strip were supposed to be set NOW, yeah this isn’t okay and he should know it. But back then he wouldn’t and his writer didn’t, and his writer DOES do a later storyline with a full on stlaker for liz, showing she did get it eventually.. even if how said storyline resolves is it’s OWN horrifying can of worms I won’t go into here and also ironically involves anthony acting way less understandably.

    Yes it is, the best kind of ridiculous too. “WE don’t negotiate with terrorists that’s a strict policy!”. I mean.. the hilarious part is he’s not wrong either. While he’s exgerating Poncho will just try and pull this EVERY time there’s a new carpet from now till doomsday (since as a comic strip doggo he is immortal0, if she lets him ransom her.

    He can make good potatoes but it’s likely the only thing he could make.

    I do find it adorable that Rose is just whale reading. And yeah he is in denial about having “the most friends”.. but he does have THREE friends so your hypothesis is flawed Rose. It may be that Gary just.. isn’t imaginary and may be one of the only surreal things in the strip tha’ts actually 100% real. Which if so i’m all for. I mean it dosen’t help spud but Gary isn’t a bad guy he’s just incompetent. Let him live.

    I can’t stop laughing. Look sometimes I have a lot to say character wise.. and sometimes it’s just hilarious to see two small children frightened by a christmas tree.
