One Big Happy (1/12/11)

I’m no fan of redundancies, but sometimes they prove necessary. This strip, for example, coaxes major mileage out of the phrase “filthy dirty.” A “filthy” bathroom might house all kinds of disturbing stains and unpleasant odors. A “dirty” bathroom might be home to inches and inches of grime; the kind of light-gray sheen that just begs for a power washing. But a “filthy dirty” bathroom? That would truly be a house of horrors, a test of endurance for the weary Interstate traveler, a water closet of last resort.
