Good 'ol Frazz

Not sure how many of you read the comic strip Frazz by Jeff Mallet. My wife shares the ones where cycling is featured. Some of you can probably relate to this one.

Nearly all comics (including Frazz) are available on the 'net. Newspapers - very last millennium.

Frazz is one of my favorite strips, though I have to admit sometimes that don't get the gag. But I guess that's why I live in Sun City

Frazz looks like Calvin and Hobbs grown up, I'll have to bookmark that link.

Some things are universal. Cubicle workers all identify with Dilbert. And all cyclists/runners/triathletes identify with Frazz. Frazz may have moppy hair, but he's not a grown-up Calvin.

Jef Mallet has a book out, Trizophrenia, which explores the world of the triathlete.

I read a lot of comic strips the old way, in the newspaper. Frazz is one of my favorites.
