Y2k in the funny papers

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Here's a sighting for you: The syndicated daily strip "Marvin," which features a kid in diapers making wise-cracks about life. This week Marvin's dad is stockpiling for Y2k, & calmly explaining his reasons to his wife. Marvin reminds daddy to stockpile diapers.

Does anyone (besides my mom) read this? If so, are the wheels turning in their heads...?

Also see Is Bill Keane a GI? It would seem the cartoonists are trying to do their part to raise awareness.

i saw another y2k comic strip a few days ago in family circle. One of the girls had a piece of paper with Y2K spelled out on it. The caption said "this spells trouble" Boy this is really going mainstram now.

Can you post a link to a newspaper that may have the Marvin cartoon in it or any of the others mentioned? Thanks in advance, Diane-Highland Traders

Duh-2000 runs a neat "monthly" summary of the stupidist y2K-related public comments.

Today's issue (Apr 1) says the fed government is 100% compliant and completely tested.

Subtle but appropriate humor for April Fools day.
