Grand Avenue (1/24/09)


This strip would be a lot more credible if the wistful, wisecracking grandmother weren’t so rail-thin. How can a woman be jealous of a snowman who easily sheds girth in the hips when she has no discernible hips to begin with? I’ve already commented on the weight-conscious grandmother in Grand Avenue, but this strip takes her neuroses to a new low. It would be one thing if she were even slightly chubby, but the way this woman is drawn, she has no curves whatsoever. My advice to her would be to stop staring at snowmen and to start taking protein supplements.
