Sorry, I lost track of how many people sent me this as an Arlo Page candidate — and who pointed out that Johnny Hart was probably turning over in his grave.
Okay, I was overlooking the painfully obvious here, in addition to looking for a Thanksgiving tie-in
Umm… Maybe this gag would have worked better in just about any strip other than this one?
B.C. joins the Arlo Page. Johnny Hart must be turning over in his grave. As always, the password is the first name of Bill Clinton’s most well-known little bit on the side (don’t forget to capitalize the M).
So it’s a toss-up here: Is the punchline that Mom’s a liar, or that she’s good at catching all of Dad’s lies?
And yes, this was the complete gag (it was the first two panels of yesterday’s BC, and the rest of the comic was an unrelated sequence)
