Is It Me or Does Sharing the Ottoman Look Weird?

I guess this is a better conversation than talking about your body starts rejecting you, falling apart, and becoming a colossal joke. I like talking about "the good old days" but my good old days are probably a little different than Uncle Ted's. Like, I never rolled a wicker hoop down the street or wandered around downtown picking up cans for two cents each, two things I imagine kids from the 1940s did.

Keen observers will notice that their coffee mugs are labeled 'B' and 'T' which I assume stand for 'Brutus' and 'Ted'.

Clean Freak

Geez, Brutus, quit asking so many questions and just let her clean. I don't know why she's wearing a small cleaning apron or a headband/bandana thingy but whatever she needs to clean, I guess.

Talk More About Being Old

There has to be something else Brutus could talk to Uncle Ted about than being old. Uncle Ted was in the military, Uncle Ted presumably has a family of his own--they don't visit him but he has them, I'm sure Uncle Ted had a long-term job and probably has hobbies. Why can't we talk about those things?

Mother Gargle Reprieve

What the hell does Mother Gargle have going on that's so damn important? She probably just doesn't want to make the hour and a half drive from Erie, Pennsylvania. Not with these gas prices. I don't understand why Mother Gargle visits every weekend anyway. Every two weeks is enough. It's not like she even likes these people.

That's the Smile of a Now-Traumatized Child

At least Gladys is self-aware. I don't need to open up the GoComics website one day and see a terrifying Baby Huey situation going on.

Why are 70s clothes coming back in style? Is it because clothing really didn't change during the 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s so we have to go back 40-plus years? Let's be honest, clothes haven't changed because we were all told we'd all be wearing the same thing. Either sleek, shiny tinfoil-looking things or whatever the hell George Jetson is wearing.
The man of the future will just have one
giant grundle instead of a crotch and butt.

Why Is Brutus Wearing That Spiffy Shirt/Jacket Combo?

Look, Chip, just because you put it in your comic doesn't make it a legitimate way to tell your wife that you want an open marriage. Or whatever you are reaching for. ("You know what's a mystery, my wife? Jillian, that single mom that moved in down the block.")

Long-term relationships are very nuanced and what may work for yours may not work for others. Heck, what works for one person in the relationship may not work for the other person. That's why it's important to talk to your significant other to make sure you are on the same page in your relationship. Don't want to end up like Brutus and Gladys. Or, God forbid, Leroy and Loretta Lockhorn.

How Are Your Poops?

I looked up why you might weigh more in the morning. Most of it has to do with eating heavy the night before--too many carbs, salt, or alcohol. Brutus may also be either too hydrated or not hydrated enough. Another cause could be constipation. But I'm almost positive that Brutus is menstruating.
