Revealed: Barney Google Lead Time, Desire To Mess With My Head


OK. Asked by me the 17th of September, 2017:

Are … are [ the Smiths’ next-door neighbor Elviney and Jughaid’s teacher Miss Prunelly ] the same character, just wearing different glasses? I’ve been reading this comic strip for like forty years and I’ve never noticed this before.

Really. Apart from their accessories the characters are the same.

And then, published by John Rose today, the 3rd of January, 2018:

Elviney, to Loweezy Smith: 'Thar's so much gossip goin' 'roun', I can hardly keep up wif it all!! But yo're in luck, Lo --- my twin sister's been able to catch whatever I miss!!' And there's a second Elviney there.
John Rose’s Barney Google and Snuffy Smith for the 3rd of January, 2017. I mean, there’s no reason Miss Prunelly can’t have a small as well as a large pair of eyeglasses, right? And if she took the pencil out of her hair she could put back in one of those … miniature Stonehenge trilithons … couldn’t she? Anyway I need help having a reaction to all this.

So. Per the US Navy’s Julian Date converter today is 2458121.5. The 17th of September was Julian Date 2458013.5. (Never try to work out the difference between two dates by yourself. Use a Julian Date converter.) So that’s 108 days, or just over 15 weeks. Good to know.
