Maybe Wombo should join 4-Evah and Eva

There's very little redeeming in today's strip. Wombo's hair is that typical atrocious pageboy--and I don't even want to tackle the hair of the kid playing the guitar. And what high schooler starts a band that's drums, a guitar, and a saxophone? And really, Donald Hutchinson, you can't see the difference between a kid liking loud music when he's creating it and a kid who'd like it to be quiet when he's trying to concentrate on his homework? Sure, Wombo should probably just head up to his room instead of being that close to the tv room, but based on the kids we see in these strips, we should just be happy that a kid is trying to do his homework. Seriously, how come he's sensitive? Because he's doing work! And parents, way to support your child's activities in that top panel. Is that the mom's tongue sticking out? Sheesh. Shut up, Al and Donald.

That's not Mom's tongue sticking out. She's gritting her teeth. Donald's hometown is Milford, CT. If this is the same Milford that Gil Thorp is set in, then this explains a lot.

Why is there a 40 year old on the misshapped sax??

I imagine the Wombo Trio to have a lush, jazzy sound, like Steely Dan, or perhaps Hall and Oates.

Of course, Wombo Sr. and Frauloota are pining for the days of Tommy Dorsey...

Lots of bands use saxophones... not only ska bands, but not to mention the Beach Boys and Dave Matthews Band.

I really hope Donald is in the past and we're talking about the Zutons here. Although they have two guitarists.

I have no problems with bands that have saxophone. I'm merely questioning whether a high schooler would start one. Some would, I'm sure, but the majority? Not so much.

Ha.. Wambo. That's funny...

Patrick: You have it set to M for mini when it should be set to W for Wambo.
Spongebob: Wambo? I don't think that's a real word, Patrick...
Patrick: Of course it is, you know...I wambo, you wambo, he, she, me, wambo. Wambology, the study of wama. It's first grade, spongebob!

Wombo's a cutting edge drummer, man. He plays standing up.
