Caption: Sir, you should know that I've renounced my shallow, overly consumerish ways. I have rededicated my life to deep, spiritual self-improvement. … And in celebration, I visited my usual plastic surgeon. Oh, no. With my new silicone-injected lips, I'm feeling better than ever about myself. Darn tootin'.

Caption: Bloom County. Plink! Stop the game! Jeane Kirkpatrick sent Bill a "Dear John" letter! He's completely LOST HIS HEAD!! Again? Ya know, he never really did have his head screwed on tight. NO JOKES!! We find it soon or heads are gonna roll! I'll head this way. Boy, I just can't make heads or tails of this ... Bill's usually head and shoulders above this sort of thing ... ... A head of his time, actually. FOUND IT!! ... Had it buried in the sand, as usual! Gosh, it's good to see Bill with his head together finally. Hold it. Opus is losing his marbles. Hardly surprising, all puns considered.

Caption: I used to think your newspaper represented traditional values … Picayune Ombudsman. Not In. But lately, your editorials have promoted free thinking. And you "comics," as usual, are inspired by Satan. Last Friday's edition was particularly anti-Christian. Why didn't you complain last Friday? Sagittarius was rising. Bad time for negativism. Picayune Ombudsman. Not In.

Caption: Poor Bill the Cat … Another of society's outcasts pushed into criminal activity by an uncaring America … BLAM! Zing! Police Line. Editor's Note: To benefit the occasional reader of this feature, we should explain that the man shown here was once a Neanderthal conservative before being kidnapped by aliens who trans-reversed his brain. He is now a Jackson progressive. Thus, the irony. Continued - I certainly hope our oppressive system will respect this criminal's rights! BLAM! BLAM! Zing! Zing! Police Line. For the readers we nevertheless lost back there - including, as usual, the author's mother, Martha Jane, 53 ... We urge another review of panel two. Trust us. In context, this all is glistening with comic irony. -Ed.

Caption: As usual, within two weeks a cloud of chaos had descended upon the mighty Meadow Party political machine. Candidate Meditating for World Peace. But there is distress and shame elsewhere on this depressing dawn … Le Bloom Boarding Abode. Moral Vacancy. Especially in the elegant suite of the deeply democratic Binkleys ... I am SO ashamed, son ... I ... I think Jesse Jackson is kinda loopy. WILL YA KEEP YER VOICE DOWN!

Caption: People, I fear our options for a Meadow Party Presidential candidate are as ugly as usual … Portnoy, give me a current scandal report on Bill the Cat. Clean as a baby's behind … The 1988. No womanizing, no plagiarizing, no marijuanizing, no anti-semiticizing, and not stupidizing for at least 14 months. He's been keepin' low? Tequila coma. I'll go peel him off the bathroom floor. The 1988 Meadow Caucus.

Caption: Boss … I think today's AIDS story was too wishy-washy, as usual ... Editor. Your frequent use of the term "intimate contact" has left some of our readers confused. I tried. Nixon. Mrs. Dillwhipple is on the phone. Again? Nixon. Mrs. Dillwhipple could well use a little explicitness in her life. Yes, madam, you may continue to safely kiss your cat "Woogums" full on the lips ...

Caption: Bloom County By Berke Breathed. 1986 … Sigh. A new year, Binkley. Time for a personal reckoning. Time for a critical review of this most recent year in my life. Lessee … In February, I was pit on trial for whacking a mime with an olive loaf … TAKE THIS, STREET VERMIN! BONK! Then my romantic life steamed full ahead with its usual vigor and excitement ... Okay. Let's go. I'm not getting any hickies tonight, am I? And recently I returned from a traumatic balloon trip over the Atlantic ... And I'm still dazed!! IT'S AMNESIA! Gary Coleman. Sorry. All in all, I think I've had a very catastrophic year, thank you. How terribly sad ... Life is an onion. One peels it while crying. True! Sniff! PHTHPH!

Caption: You'll be staying in my room, Mrs. Dallas. There'z clean sheets on the bed and herring innards in the sink. I apologize for the latter. Say boy … Just how long have you lived here? Can't remember. I have amnesia. Oh, you don’t really … Apparently, I took a balloon trip in a wheelchair. Drifting off course, we crashed into the Atlantic. Cutter John remains missing. I returned an emotional cripple suffering from amnesia and athlete's foot. STEVEN! WHAT IS ALL THIS NONSENSE?! The usual cockamamy sub-plots, as near as I can figure.

MMPH … … While the Royal Bloom County Marching Band belts out a downright rousing rendition of "The Stars and Stripes Forever"! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Tips. ... The tuba section, however, is having the usual confusion with the sheet music and appears to be well into the third verse of Madonna's "Like A Virgin" ... BLATT! PHBLAT! OOMP! PHOOP!

Caption: Father? Yes? May I have permission to send someone to Washington, D.C., to flash the South African ambassador with my new "Electro Photo Pigment-izer," thereby turning him black and creating an international diplomatic brouhaha? No. Just the usual formality before the chaos begins. Like playing the National Anthem before a Cubs game.
