Zippy nonsense

Today’s Zippy, which incorporates the comic-within-the-comic, Fletcher and Tanya:

F&T is a recurrent feature in Zippy. It’s a masterpiece of (Gricean) irrelevance, in which the conversational partners flagrantly talk past one another. What each of them says is grammatical English, though often peculiar in content. But the exchanges don’t cohere at all.

Additional features here: the absurd name Lumbago Masterfile; the chain of wonderful adjectivals flummoxed, bamboozled, and atwitter; and the morphological invention graphiscatorial.

    We seem to be having a whole week of Fletcher and Tanya, which is about four more days than necessary, for my taste.
