#1LinerWeds from The Comics Curmudgeon

Awww, looks like somebody has a case of the Mondays, if by “a case of the Mondays” you mean “a nagging realization that life is a joyless cycle of repetitive, meaningless tasks.” I think that’s what most people mean by it, right?
Josh Fruhlinger, “The Comics Curmudgeon,” 11-23-15

A blog that I read daily (and you should, too) is The Comics Curmudgeon, written by Josh Fruhlinger. His first entry on the current site was made on October 13, 2004, and the blog had been running on a Blogger site before that, so it’s been going for some time. His original purpose in running the blog was to comment on the “soap opera” comics (e.g. Mary Worth, Judge Parker, Gil Thorp, Mark Trail, and especially Apartment 3-G, which ended its 50-plus year run last Friday), by which I mean he makes snarky comments about them. Other targets include The Family Circus, Archie, Slylock Fox, Barney Google & Snuffy Smith, Marvin, the comics of Tom Batiuk (Funky Winkerbean and Crankshaft), Herb and Jamaal, and Hi and Lois, about which the above comment was made. He opens his blog up for comments, some of which are funnier than Josh’s articles, and there is a weekly feature called “Comments of the Week,” where he takes the better (in his opinion) comments and features them in the post, with the one he decides is the best being featured in the heading of the blog the following week. If you’re a fan of the comics, like I am, you’ll love the site, and if you aren’t, Josh’s acerbic wit will certainly entertain you.


One-Liner Wednesday is hosted by the currently-vacationing Linda Hill. Helen Espinosa is moderating Linda’s blog hops in her absence.
