Al's starting to catch up to the times

I pulled up today's strip and was shocked. Shocked! It's about cell phones. How does Scaduto know about them? They didn't exist in 1953! Not that the strip itself actually says anything worth noting. My God, you mean some people who have cell phones are rude and act obnoxiously with them? Whoever heard of such a thing? Anyway, it pulls Al to at least 1998 or so, which is impressive in and of itself.

Although there's yet another comment about a sarcastic sister-in-law. Migraina wasn't the one who complained about her last time, but maybe they're all related. Who knows? And I "We're going to Tahiti" isn't actually sarcasm. It's snobbery.

Anyway, I'm impressed. It's an old concept, but by old I mean 10 years, not 50. Good job!

Of course, between the outfits and "ladies auxillary" meeting, it appears that the cell phone was sent back in time, probably by that "slingshot around the sun" thing.

Time travel would explain so much about Scadutos' work. . . .

Again, the facial expressions are so inappropriate. What's up with tha slack jaw gapes in the background?

The slack jaw gapes indicate amazement at this device from The Future! Never mind that thing is the size of a Korean War era walkie-talkie.

It may be a vintage Zach Morris phone.
