Jack's Not Here, We Get It!

First, Carol looks like the American Gothic version of Lu Ann, and then Tommie inhabits Lu Ann's mind, by being incapable of understanding how humans can move without cars.

These last few strips have been worse than the "tell don't show" mode of storytelling that we've grown accustomed to.  This is "tell us something we already know, repeatedly because one of other characters is slow on the uptake" is pretty annoying.

I was it was only pretty annoying. I've been close to clawing out my eyes over these protracted conversations between supremely uninteresting characters.

My working theory now is that Mags Shulock is smoking meth and just tossing phrases from the emails she gets from irate readers into A3-G in a random fashion... Forget that. It's that she's smoking meth and attempting to act normal!

Oh! Now I get it! Carol's not making sense on purpose! That's why this strip doesn't make any sense.

Please bring back the shorter-haired, snarky Carol! The Carol from the first couple of Happiness Falls strips would really kick it up a notch. BAM!

Well, Carol, once you finish playing your games, I wish you would tell me if Jack's here or not. I'm only asking the simple question. Is Jack here? I'm using my eyes like I usually do to see if I see Jack, but I don't see Jack. Is he hiding behind that shed or one of those bales of hay? I don't hear Jack's voice either. I just hear you Carol, playing your games...your complicated games.

People can move around without cars? I thought Jack put Joey in the back seat of his car. Isn't that what people do with animals in A3-G Land?
