Recent Beetle Bailey comic strip that Leonard and I discussed…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Recent Beetle Bailey comic strip that Leonard and I discussed at some length:

Panel One: the Sarge comes across his anthropomorphic dog, Otto, half-dressed (hat, shirt, and boxer shorts) and angry, next to Otto's doggie bed, in which a female poodle rests beneath the sheets.

Panel Two: the Sarge blushes on his front steps, saying, "He should have told me he was using the room tonight."

How does Mort Walker believe that this is funnier than it is disturbing?
