If Not John Then Perhaps Tony

I love this strip. I love all of our strips. But I really love this strip.

Paul doesn’t typically like to talk about the personal stuff that’s going on in his life. He doesn’t like me to talk about it either, but sometimes it’s necessary. To put it mildly, it’s been a rough couple of weeks for Paul. First, the Ducks lost the BCS National Championship Game. Then, yesterday, the Seahawks lost to the Bears in the NFC Divisional Playoffs. It’s a one-two punch that is going to require some time to heal.

In his current state of screwed-up-ness Paul is now rooting for the Packers. I tried to suggest to him that he might benefit from some counseling. He replied that I could have sexual relations with the entire Bears franchise for all he cared. I’m cutting him some slack, since he is obviously not well. I’m also taking the high road on this, for now. I am hoping, and it’s a mighty hope, that he comes to his senses soon, like today.

If you have a minute, please let Paul know that you wish him a speedy recovery too.

Go Bears!
