Sunday, June 7: More Than You Ever Wanted To Know About Jumping Ropes


Awesome. I think I even like the joke in the lead throwaway panels better than the main strip!

There are shades here of Linus' pontificating a litany of made-up sightings of the Great Pumpkin.


  1. "GIVE 'ER TH' GUN" is the highlight of the entire strip. But yes, the "insurance agent" bit is good too.

  2. Yeah, I can just imagine a couple of gray-flannel-suited guys of the era visiting Lucy for advice on how to use jump ropes to "leverage" an insurance sale. Off-the-wall much?
