    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.
    "When man first set woman on two wheels with a pair of pedals, did he know, I wonder, that he had rent the veil of the harem in twain? A woman on a bicycle has all the world before her where to choose; she can go where she will, no man hindering." The Typewriter Girl, 1899.

    And yet somehow you have 6000+ posts here.

    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.
