For help on how to follow a comic title,
Alternate Final Panel Thought Balloon: “It’s good to go…and not in the bed, for once!”
He’s not retired. Ed-who mind you is canonically a WWII veteran—is still employed as a school bus driver…except for those old “Funky Winkerbean” strips where present-day Cranky was a wheelchair-bound nursing home resident.
Hahaha, it’s funny because Ed ordered a large amount of gardening supplies. And thus another “Crankshaft” arc comes to its sidesplitting conclusion.
Ed already has a “girlfriend,” fellow school bus driver Mary. Good thing for him she wasn’t walking down the street to witness this.
“Since the pandemic”? As opposed to the Pullman strike of 1894 where more than 25 people were killed, the 1902 coal miners’ strike that required White House intervention, the 1970 postal worker’s strike, the 1981 air traffic controller strike, or the actual UPS strike of 1997, to name a few? Hollywood actors and writers going on strike last year and delaying the season premiere of “Young Sheldon” is hardly a new phenomenon or on a par with the often-violent labor actions of years past.
Well, I looked, and boy, what it depressing! Ed thinks he has problems; he should talk to Piro!
Hahaha, random unwanted sexual advances are funny!
Ironically, Ed is old enough to have done the same thing on the actual V-J day.
You do understand that this is a fictitious strike, and there is no such company as UPX, don’t you?
Not around Christmas or Easter/Passover/Ramadan? All the schools here seem to be open.
LOL implies sarcasm, a concept lost on you.
