Tommie's High Standards

Um... what?

Sorry Lily.

Has anyone else noticed that there are really NO likeable characters in this strip? We're supposed to feel something for Tommie, at this point- but she's so indifferent to everything, it's hard to feel anything for her. Lu Ann is just a simpleton, but what's Tommie's excuse?

I'm with you, Casey. The saddest part about this is that it will be mined for zero comedy, even though Tommie will have to drive with a now full-grown deer to upstate New York. I mean this could be a hilarious buddy film in and of itself. I'm imagining a cross of that scene from Tommy Boy and an escalating series of dares.

I've noticed that there are no likeable characters in the strip... that's why it's so easy and rewarding to mock them. If we really liked the characters, we'd automatically forgive the horrendous artwork, wouldn't we?

We don't and so we don't. Well, and we laugh and laugh, I hope.

No likeable characters? I don't know about anyone else but I've taken quite a shine to this Lily. I look forward to enjoying her antics for years to come!
It seems clear to me that Jack Riley is the kind of vet who deals prescription drugs on the side. I mean, everyone in "Happiness Falls" ADORES him? And since Tommie can no longer feed her addiction by sneaking patients meds doing her nursing job, of course she's going to drive the 3 hours to see him. (I think Lily will have to do most of the driving once the shakes kick in.)

I'm confused and have no idea where this story line is going. I thought it was about Jim-the-dead-fiance. Boy, he was forgotten about fast. Even Lu-Ann went to the grave site of her dead imaginary hubby - Gary (Not Gary the U2 pilot) Powers.

Now this has become a bad homage to a Hope & Crosby "road" movie.

"Oh! We're off on a road to Happiness! (Falls, that is) We certainly do get arouuuund!"

A 3 hour ride with a deer in the car? I hope Tommie has one of those little green air freshener trees hanging from her rear view mirror.
