A Grave Matter

Today’s old comic strip is from 2002. I hate to be the one to tell Arlo, but there’s a lot more gravity in 2018 than there was then. There’s so much, in fact, both my feet rarely leave the ground at the same time anymore without the assistance of an ottoman. It’s Mardi Gras, by the way. The current A&J deals with that in newspapers and over at gocomics.com. When I lived near New Orleans, the NOLA television stations would broadcast Mardi Gras carryings-on all day on Fat Tuesday. I know: it sounds dumb. However, I rather enjoyed checking in throughout the day via TV. It was something different and festive, with no crowds, no parking problems and no unidentifiable liquids underfoot.
