For this special anniversary blog entry, we thought we'd use an entire entry with dialogue from the Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012, comic book section of "The Roanoke Times," a daily newspaper in Roanoke, Va. Let's begin:
1) "I'm ugly, that's all"
2) "School is a microcosm of society ..... a puzzle of where everyone is a piece trying to see where they fit in."
3) "Some things just dare to be tried, dad."
4) "Who can answer how much is nine minus seven?"
5) "I've decided that I'm a people person."
6) "Did you poke me on Facebook?"
7) "Where is he? What's going on?"
8) "Has anyone seen a small brown purse:
9) "Why do I always leave it to Sunday night to start panicking about when I should do my homework?"
10) "Your nose piercings look ridicilous."
11) "I'll get right on it, boss."
12) "The weekend is almost over."
(From "For Better or Worse, Agnes, Zits, Mutts, Baby Blues, Pearls Before Swine, Get Fuzzy, Dilbert, Sally Forth and Speed Bump, Blondie and "Hi and Lois;" the image are of Linda Cardellini from the 1999 tv show "Freaks and Geeks, four cards with sevens, and a water cooler, since one was featured in the "Blondie" strip).
