This old Sunday A&J probably is more relevant now than ever. If you don’t understand it, don’t worry: someone will explain it. That’s the great thing about commenters! The joke, such as it is, does range toward the “obscure” end of the scale, but that was deliberate in this case. As a good cartoonist should, I try to make my humor understandable to the optimum number of readers (I heard that; I’m serious!). I’m never sure what that number is, but no one can produce an indecipherable comic every day and expect to be appreciated, though some have tried. However, now and then I think it’s fun to challenge you, the reader, just a little bit.
