ITT: I dump lockhorns comics where Leroy interacts with bimbos
It's the same joke every time
This is a depressing comic
it's just about a couple that hates each other
why haven't they gotten a fucking divorce yet holy shit
>why haven't they gotten a fucking divorce yet holy shit
The artists have discussed this.
If they got a divorce the comic would end and nobody wants that
Loretta knows that she's too old for anyone to want her, so she clings to the only thing she has even if he's garbage. Same for him, really. Neither enjoys life, but neither wants to die alone. Source: 40 years of observing my parents.
Despite his baldness and his wife's snide remarks, Leroy seems pretty popular with the ladies.
Back in the 40s people were often set up by their parents
They like that he can party.
Women irl are like this too they always fawn over old guys who like to party and have a good time
I was going to make a quip about the writer having problems in the home. But first I decided to wiki it up and...
>Author(s) Bunny Hoest and John Reiner
>"Be careful," Ms. Hoest said. "I'm just writing what I see. It's based on observation."
Now I don't know what.
Its a joke saying shes going to punish him after the party
>The Lockhorns takes place in a future dystopia where blank-faced fembots prowl the countryside unopposed, seeking out men to seduce and enslave. This is the story of one woman's attempt at keeping her husband from falling under their power.
Christ, this thread is depressing.
This is like the part 2/3 through every Daniel Clowes book where the characters are self-loathing failures who just fucked up. Except it never ends. It's just that low over and over.
Apparently leeroy is just really good with the ladies. He's got some sweet dance moves at least, he always gets a girl to dance with him. Also he appears to be one hell of a smooth talker >>78711726
so.. all these people hating on Leroy, maybe you should hate our society's absolutely stupid bullshit concept of marriage and monogamy. I'm sick of defending my desire to fuck young women all day long every day. It's what I was born to do, what all straight men were born to do. It's on our DNA.
of all the dumb "chivalry" traditions, this one makes the least sense. How the fuck does it help anyone to throw a coat in a puddle? It doesn't make the puddle easier to traverse at all....
Normally I don't like old man/beautiful young girl smut, but I'd pay good money to see Leroy plowing all of these bimbos
Half of the strips are Leeory making Loretta miserable, the other half is Loretta making Leeroy miserable.
That's probably literally all that's holding their marriage together. Making each other's lives miserable is the only thing that brings them any joy.
The whole thing is a satire to what married life is seen in it's late years
It was a very common cliche in the 70s up that the man would have a midlife crisis and would skirt chase/flirt while the wife would seesaw between bitter indifference and passionate disapproval over the whole ordeal.
They're actually super useful if you're planning a huge trip where you want to plan a week's worth of activities at a time, but most of the time it's a lot more efficient to just book stuff yourself.
The only thing I can think of is a situation in the olden days where a woman's dancing shoes might have been made of silk or some other very delicate material, which would have been ruined by the shallowest of puddles, and if a coat was of thick material it might have been enough to soak up the puddle / provide enough bulk to be able to step on without ruining the shoes.
Otherwise, I have no idea either
Why do women wear impractical footwear? I had an argument with two of my female co-workers who were moaning about how sore their feet were after wearing heels the previous night. I suggested they wear something comfortable and they just went "NO BUT THESE LOOKED REALLY NICE. YOU DON'T WEAR COMFORTABLE THINGS ON A NIGHT OUT. YOU JUST DON'T GET IT" I agreed I didn't get it then went and took painkillers for my rapidly forming headache.
It's a style question. Women's outfits, when not relaxed tomboyish style, are meant to look stylish and elegant or whatever and have a "total look". They're often also more varied or colourful than men's fashions, which tends to follow the same "suit and simple, classic colours" year after year. So women's style look also encompasses the shoes, and sometimes having shoes that fit the style and look "good" is valued higher than wearing comfortable shoes.
High heels also make your legs look sexier.
So, unfortunately, really often comfortable, practical, weatherproof footwear gets branded as frumpy or sexless, while it's the impractical, gorgeous, delicate-details footwear that's recognised as sexy, stylish etc. It's a question of values; are you ready to pay the price of looking stunning or not?
Personally I try to avoid uncomfortable shoes because I like to be able to walk well and long if I need to, shoes that make your feet literally bleed after 30 min of walking are such a pain even if they'd look awesome and complete the outfit. But then, I often look a bit frumpy anyway.
I wish more women wore steel toe caps, ratty jeans, and frayed sweaters.
Why am I so attracted to garbage
In addition; colourful statement piece footwear can be fun though, even if it's impractical. I for example have a pair of flats (thank god, they're comfy) made of embroidered silk I got in Venice, and they're gorgeous and mint-green and it's true that with this specific summer frock it's just a different feel than if I'd wear sneakers or sensible black leather shoes with them. But since they're silk, they're really, really delicate and easily ruined.
So in a way, women's shoes are just not for walking, they're a much more integral part of the "look" than men's shoes. They can be considered similarly important as the jewellery, for example.
Men's style is also usually more classic, simple, and understated.
Yeah "sensible shoes" really have a sex-killer stigma. Among other women even, it's like the mark of a woman who's given up on finding romance and caring about her looks. Or possibly a dyke. Definitely they don't carry this feeling of a sexy, attractive, glamorous woman who's living life to the fullest.
Which is a damn shame because uncomfortable shoes are so horrible
>Look at this failed, loveless marriage! Isn't that funny? LOL!
No. It's depressing.
heres an archive that has every lockhorns comic ever made
It has all the ones that don't have a bimbo in them
theres other jokes
Is the middle one about domestic abuse or what
It's not just that. These are just the ones I saved from the website
Here's a joke that doesn't have a bimbo in it that's semi 4chan related
I'm pretty sure it was always a cartoonish exaggeration. I can't imagine anyone actually doing that, even in the middle ages when everyone was retarded. Maybe an insanely rich noble with a million coats might do it.
The moral of the story: Even if you're a balding, middle aged, short, fat, and ugly man, freakishly beautiful women will always be willing flirt with you, but if you're a frumpy middle aged woman you're garbo.
Dumping a bucket of water on him while he's talking to the beautiful women is a really good way to help you're husband get laid. Especially since he clearly has game, if all these other panels are any indication.
So from what I understand, the wife... hates him completely and unapologetically... and wants nothing to do with him... But she still cockblocks him at every turn.
Just let him cheat on you and then you get half the stuff in the divorce.
