The Beginning of the End

Ah, the economic crisis. I'm tired of hearing about it. This week, Cathy and her husband are in the financial planner's office planning their finances and learning that they are bankrupt. Cathy and her husband are "ACK"ing their way through the meeting, possibly causing the planner to drink more at the end of the day.

Like usual, this strip does not end humorously. I took it upon myself to fix it up and at least show what I would've written.

To make a long story short, turn off the TV, read a book. We've been through rough times before we've just never been alive for them.

Uh-oh, Dagwood's dead.

Now Blondie can cash in on that sweet, sweet life insurance.

I think we all do Rat. We all do.

So much going on. Zoe being overcome with homework, Hammie understanding the concept of an "all-nighter", Darryl running the show but I just can't get past the fact that Zoe appears to be left-handed.

Better watch out, Dolly. Daddy Keane's been on a bender and you do not want to wind up on the bad end of a Jack Daniels bottle.

Oh. I hope Born Loser doesn't spiral into the financial crisis crap that's starting to permeate the comic strips now. I don't know how long I'd be able to stand it.
