It's Monday, so we all know what that means! Mayonnaise Monday. Just to be frank, I feel like Mayo Monday may be getting a bit stale. And we all know that stale mayonnaise is not only bad tasting but dangerous to your health.
But you people are NOT releasing your grip on Mayonnaise Monday. Your strong, irrational and loving arms won't let it go. It's like your arms were made from some strong, irrational and loving oak tree. So (for you) I will press on!
And I can already hear the relieved reader responses:
"Are those pants velvet?"
And I'd like to respond to those very fair inquiries, but the light is fading and this post is already too long. So let's move on ...
Today's Mayonnaise Monday is by the original UUC! UUC = "Universal Uclick Comic" ... Doonesbury. Garry Trudeau's Pulitzer Prize-winning 46-year-storytelling masterpiece may yet challenge Charles Schulz's 50-year run as the longest story ever told by a single voice (no laryngitis jokes here, please).
So no more holding the mayo! Here's Doonesbury from May 27, 1986.
Are you as tickled as I am to see that any comic would start with the dialogue, "So, how'd the mayonnaise get on my Monet, Curtis?"
You should also know that Garry's latest Donald Trump-themed book Yuge! has been burning up the bookstore checkout aisles. Digital sales too, I saw it as high as #3 overall on Amazon over the summer. I was (and you'll be) astonished how accurately Garry captured Donald even all the way back in the '80s. It's spot on. You should check it out.
