One Non-Blonde

September 22, 1965
Classic ketchup bit. One of the things I love about these older strips is how angry everybody gets. They're like George Costanza when he's told he should go to anger management. "Having some trouble with the ketchup?" "Yes, probably because the WHOLE UNIVERSE IS AGAINST ME!!!"

I'm assuming Ms. Preen edited her SnapChat avatar and then felt like she needed to look exactly like that. Do typical readers of The Born Loser know that avatar is different from profile picture? I feel this could lead to confusion. Older audiences should really stick to Blondie, Hi & Lois, Beetle Bailey, or strips geared toward them like Pluggers or a soap opera strip.
