And how can oats have “whole wheat bran”? Wouldn’t that be whole oat bran?
How does one ‘multi-grain’ oatmeal? Are there several varieties of oats like there are for rice?
John and Scott’s opportunity to riff on “Baby, it’s cold out there.”
G. Trudeau has a history of operating with shorter advance than most cartoonists. – It is also not unknown for cartoonists to draw alternatives and decide on short notice which to run.
The precepts of any successful religion are ideas for a good society. Reread the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, The Lord’s Prayer and etc. People took them long ago and assigned them as handed down by God. (Perhaps they were…) / The church (synagogue) etc. were first often times to organize schools, hospitals, etc., long before government ever did.
And then you Scott Artist slipped on another typo: “sipped” should be “slipped”. Maybe have John proofread too.
P.S. I am reminded of Silver Nitrate. Is he still in prison? Has he met Art Dekko? (Can they work together?) Making fakes is a bit harder with Sprocket out of the picture.
We get the impression that when Dick Tracy sees a previous criminal that the criminal is engaged in criminal activity and will soon be subject to ‘Major Crimes Investigation’, led by Dick and Sam. You would think Dick and Sam would notice and give these past acquaintances a good look. Mike and Shelley could make the strip ‘deeper’ by showing one or two days months ago of Tracy encountering Art Dekko, and nothing comes from it, then.
What we see is cartoon-verse. In real life there would be a pile on one side of her father’s shoveled path, where he has dumped the snow. And Maria would be standing in the shoveled path behind him.
Sue Reel’s appearance matches the word-play world Dick Tracy lives in, but in real life trimming and waxing such a mustache takes a lot of attention, plus a woman having such a mustache draws unwelcome attention from others. She would be more likely to shave it off. More likely would be doing such with the hair on top of her head.
