I’ve said it before: Give Andy a job once in a while to see him screw it up!
This is what Wikipedia says: “On more than one occasion, it is mentioned that Andy had been in the army (with the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, Reg Smythe’s regiment) and was a World War II veteran of the North African campaign.” This would indicate that Andy is a pensioner and has his own income outside of Flo’s job. This would be a good area for the current Andy Capp writers to explore. What kind of soldier was he? Can we meet some of his buddies and former superiors? Humorous stories can be found in that area, especially if he meets some of his former officers.
It would be fun to see him get a job once in a while. A lazy man at work and failing can be funny.
Nancy was never that ignorant and selfish before the current artist. Shame on the current artist for providing a way for kids to be disrespectful to both themselves and others. I understand comedy, but this is not funny.
Albuquerque is Oct. 7-15. Maybe Fred and his family time-warped.
Ironically, in his quest to get people to read, Rat has spoken grammatically incorrectly. He should have said, “to whoever wants them” because this is an infinitive phrase. “(W)hoever wants them” is the object of the infinitive and, therefore, whoever is the subject of the infinitive and must be subjective, not objective. Hopefully, Rat also gave out “Catcher in the Rye” , “A Separate Peace” and “Peace Breaks Out”.
If Andy got the job and we could see him work, this would give the story a whole new dimension for the 21st Century.
This storyline was kind of a dumb idea. Greater fire hazards exist than burning a scent candle, which is not in and of itself hazardous or a selfish act. If the author wanted to make a truly worthwhile statement, he could have done a storyline on faulty wiring, old appliances or fireplaces in disrepair. The scented candle storyline is ridiculous.
A more interesting idea would be for Andy to start getting actual work, but fail in humorous ways.
The gun problem is complex. China is importing guns to Southern California, where they are smuggled to Mexico and smuggled by gangs back into the U.S. The Biden Administration needs to stop this trading, but will they? (Vanda Felbab-Brown Brookings Institute) It’s a little naive and unfair to suggest that there are easy answers. The article I cite is an extremely well-documented article. Other issues, such as broken families and mental illness also play a part in this sad tale.
