Terrible Tuesday

by Hal Bent

It's Terrible Tuesday, so let's see what fresh horror the comic strips have for the unsuspecting masses just looking for a chuckle. 

Adam@Home by Brian Basset:

I'm afraid that this blog is turning into the "I hate Adam@Home blog" because I seem drawn to comic each day with such strong emotion. Today, it's the second panel and the unclad chest of Adam. Does the discerning comic viewer need to see this balding, big-schnozz slob's chest?  Nay, I say, nay! Look at panel two...it's like a face saying "ooh". Bleeech. 

Wizard of Id by Parker and Hart:
This is an example of a comic that could be slightly humorous with a better, less "shove it in your face" punchline.  The comic should have the second panel show the Wizard carrying a large, empty box saying "Just setting up the new security system" or whatnot. The third panel should depict the box in front of the neighbor's house with the Wizard walking away and the box should say something like "50 inch HD Flat Screen Television" or something to that effect. 

Close to Home by John McPherson:
You can push the envelope, or you can go right past the line and keep going.  Uncle Howie is beyond sick.  Way beyond sick!  That is one of those where the more you think about it, the worse it gets. That's the best terrible of the day, for sure.

I had the same reaction to Close to Home when I read it.

Yeah, the Close to Home thing is pretty gross, and frankly not handled at all well by the cartoonist. The fact that the woman is wearing a shortish dress and has her hand covering her crotch made me think, "What the hell? Is this an abortion clinic or something? Yikes!"

Then I realized it was a dentist's office and it was still gross, but somewhat more understandable. I think a poster of some teeth in the background might have helped, if such a cartoon can be helped at all.
