Today's Edison strip features Honey Boo Boo in the punchline. This is one of those strips that actually is inspired by a real event or conversation. Back at Christmas my 76 year old father looked at me and said "I need your help with a pop culture reference - What is a Honey Boo Boo?"
Just like that. Swear to god. And we knew we would have to work it into a strip somehow. I think John did a great job turning it into a punchline that works with Orville.
As with all syndicated comics, that strip was written weeks ago.
So imagine my surprise when I read today's Curtis:

Talk about synchronicity!
Next year let's make January 30 official Honey Boo Boo day and see if we can get ALL the comics on board :-)
