Arlo & Janis (1/19/09)


Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. It’s a hackneyed sentiment that makes for easy jokes on the comics page, although rarely with the subtlety of today’s Arlo & Janis. “I’ll impress her with my empirical evidence,” he says, thinking back to previous incidents that contradict her statement. “Empirical evidence! That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever heard,” she replies, barely able to contain herself. The dialogue has the crackle of authenticity, especially coming from a couple that’s been married for decades.
