Family Circus homophone catastrophe

[The Family Circus, October 11, 2013.]


1. The old-school thermometer.

2. The scene in the window.


1. Billy’s first your .

2. Billy’s second your .

I suppose it’s possible that Billy is spelling cute. (Aww.) He does though get to and too right. I think it’s likely that the yours are a grown-up’s mistakes.

[I know that cute isn’t an abverb. But see here.]

Sometimes that's the syndicate's fault, or the paper's -- I remember seeing a Marmaduke comic back in the 90s with caption that read something like 'MARMADUKE CAPTION HERE. LEAVE TWO LINES FOR MARMADUKE CAPTION'... Funniest Marmaduke ever!

Yes, many hands are involved. I just read that some papers corrected the mistake.

I’d like to have seen that Marmaduke strip.
