    Notice that I don’t always explain what’s going on in a strip; in this case, I’ve left the gouda news without an explanation, though (as usual) the phrase calls on considerable background knowledge.

    Now do I always explain my own comments — in this case, where spreading the gospel comes from.

    If a reader has trouble with either of these, I am of course willing to elucidate here. But occasionally I like to leave a strip and my response as little puzzles to be solved.

      I’m sure, tangentially, that you can explain today’s Bizarro, which was opaque to me. (I know who the characters are, of course, but I don’t get the thing about the horses.)

        The Scarecrow is speaking. The Scarecrow is stuffed with straw. Straw used to be fed to horses as a substitute for hay; straw has no nutritive value, but it serves as bulk fodder, which horses need for digestive health.

        So the Scarecrow is afraid of being eaten.

    How can I obtain a copy of this to frame. This is my all time favorite laugh!
