Episode 498

Read the comic here.

Kent's broken in with "For Better or For Worse" news alerts in the past. With that strip "ending" (or going into reruns or hybrid-new or something) at the end of the month, I realized I was running out of time to snark on it.

So I wrote this whole arc where the gang gets lost on the way to the Frog Homeworld and ends up crashing and destroying the Lizanthony wedding - in the process adding Elizabeth Patterson to the cast as Whiskey's new love interest.

But then I thought better of it.

The "Whiskey as a fireman" is a one-day only joke. He'll be back in his normal outfit tomorrow.

Damn I was hoping there'd be something new in this strip. I gotta hope these robots are cool enough :P

LOL!

God, I hate the Lizanthony wedding. I don't understand why Johnston thinks that we really care about who does what for every little thinkg in the wedding. I especially hate this tidbit:

Person: You can trust your reception manager.
Ellie: Better than that, we can trust our caters!

Then they spend the rest of the strip talking about who's doing the catering. I mean, who actually talks like that?

I quit reading FBOFW when my hometown paper pulled it for having a gay character. Once it was gone, I didn't miss it and never picked it back up.

I enjoyed this strip for Whiskey's 'big hoses' joke.

Tk1420:
My FBoFW rants are a guilty pleasure - I'm glad the wraparound joke worked for you; it was the only way I could justify today's indulgence...

...other than the fact that I now need to re-script the next few weeks and wanted to get *something* out of the old plotline...

Why do I have this sneaking feeling that you've now got weddings on the brain with all the FBoFW talk -- and Curtis/Ted are gonna wind up married (or as Curtis would say, "hitched")?
