The comic strip section in the newspaper is not read as often as it used to be. I remember my Dad reading it to me when I was young and now it’s my favorite part of the newspaper. Having a few chuckles with my breakfast is better than a cup of coffee, a beverage of which I don’t partake.
I read the comic strips in the newspaper everyday. It’s what I turn to first before the depressing articles – some of disbelief. I believe this is one of the reasons I haven’t canceled my subscription. That and Del Stone, a local columnist who writes hilarious articles each week. He also has some great books out on Amazon as well.
Most of the local and state news shows up on my Facebook feed the evening before the paper comes out since I follow the Daily News page. I would save about $26.00 a month if I read my paper from there. But…there would be no more comics to start off my day and tape to the fridge.
Zits, situated between Wizard Of Id and Peanuts, has always been my favorite and he never fails to give me a laugh. I think it’s because he’s a typical teen whose antics -from laundry woes to school work to his band – often remind me of when Andrew was younger.
These are the two latest cartoons I took a snapshot of and sent via text to Andrew. I’m not sure he appreciates my humor because he doesn’t always respond. If you read my blog you know Andrew is a percussionist so this situation with Zits friend, Pierce, fits him perfectly.
What’s your favorite cartoon strip?
