Zits (4/18/09)


Ive taken a proverbial magnifying glass to this strip and still can’t figure out the source of the conflict. The young man’s mother holds in her hands a tiny scrap of evidence that we can assume is either inappropriate or embarrassing, if not out-and-out illegal. But what is it, exactly? A hastily scrawled note from a teacher? A “do not remove under penalty of law” tag from a mattress? An extremely flat bag of marijuana? The unfortunate results of an STD test? The artwork in this strip makes it impossible to tell, and so the poor reader is left with only speculation and conjecture.
