Saturday Comic

Today we’re going with a comic from Sam and Silo, from the June 29th of 2016. The character is “Funny Floyd”, who is described as “a naturalist, a poet, highly educated—and nuts.”

Well, being retired (or something like it) does help in going barefooted.

This comic is from Berry’s World, written by Jim Berry. It appeared on June 11 in 1970.

While the joke does not revolve around bare feet, we can see that bare feet were the style of the day (and that “style” helped contribute to NSNSNS signs).

Our cartoon for this weekend is from Off the Record, which was drawn by Carl Kuhn from 1935-1940, and by Ed Reed from 1946-1984. This one is from August 20, 1954 (back when what you see would have been considered a scandalous bathing suit).

Last week’s comic had Wallace the Brave (by Will Henry) tossing his shoes into the bay at the start of summer (because he never wears shoes during the summer, and because “tradition!“).

Fortunately, the Grand Canyon offers plenty of opportunities.

ComFest 2017

I’ve written about Columbus’ ComFest before. As I said then, it’s a bit hippie, a bit progressive, a bit community volunteerism, a bit local music, and an artist shindig well-worth going to. Given that nature, you won’t be surprised to hear that you’ll also see quite a few people going barefoot there, even though they are what I tend to call blanket barefooters.

And this year there was added drama with a lawsuit.

While Red of Red and Rover goes barefoot much of the summer, Wallace of Wallace the Brave (written by Will Henry) takes step to ensure it. This strip was published just last Monday, June 19, 2017.
