I've never heard the term HENBERRIES (Eggs, in diner slang) before, and honestly, I'm a little sorry to have heard it now. But it was necessary, I guess, to have four items that could follow LITTLERED. The full set is Mao's "Little Red Book," the storied Little Red Hen, the iconic Little Red Schoolhouse, and the classic Little Red Wagon. Too bad "Corvette" couldn't have been worked in somehow. Maybe with that Mark Hamill classic, "Corvette Summer." :)
Anyway, the fill didn't thrill today. HAGAR ("Horrible" comics Viking) was interesting to see, though, because last week, one of my brothers brought to the family vacation house over 100 "Hägar the Horrible" strips for review. We were supposed to write our initials on the back if we found it funny. I think I initialled less than 25%.
Radio RAHEEM and NEO are getting kind of old now, and Marco RUBIO and GASX just bring to mind politics, which is rarely a good thing.... TUDES, SPEX, PLINK ... not a ton that elicited WOWS.
It's a debut, and I congratulate Ms. Martin on the creation and acceptance, but maybe I'm just too drained from working through the work INBOX yesterday to fully appreciate it. Hopefully, I'll be back on my GAME tomorrow.
