La Cucaracha (6/19/10)

Here’s what bothers me about this strip: the green-shirted woman’s reaction to the punchline. Disbelief is the standard comic response to the crassness expressed by her oil-hungry Neanderthal of a husband. It would make sense to draw an exclamation point floating above the woman’s head or a few beads of sweat leaping from her face (or both!). But the expression she sports in the third panel seems downright content. It’s as if the thought of air pollutants has transported her directly to her happy place.
