  1. As someone who throws boomerangs, I always make sure that no one is anywhere near boomerang throwing range when I throw. However, a lot of spectators aren’t aware of this, and walk right in front of me. Captivated by the returning object, they are blissfully unaware that the spinning blade of wood that I throw could cause significant injury if it should ever hit them.

    And this cartoon is showing just that. Of course, if you don’t throw boomerangs, it won’t be obvious to you.

  2. People who are not Linda Blair often run into problems when they try to turn their heads all the way around.

  3. For those who cannot keep the characters straight (yes Bill, I mean you), the twisted observer is B.C., and the thrower is Peter.

  4. “For those who cannot keep the characters straight (yes Bill, I mean you), the twisted observer is B.C., and the thrower is Peter.”

    But is that relevant? Well, maybe. Peter tends to be more cynical and snide whereas B.C. tends to be guileless. But does that matter?

  5. I plead “Guilty as charged”. 😉

    P.S. Actually, if Hart had drawn this strip, the thrower would probably have been Thor (as the “resident inventor”), Peter was more the philosophic type.

  6. They went to the park to play catch. They brought a boomerang. There is no need to go to the park with two people to play catch with a boomerang.

  7. Head turned in one direction, but body apparently turned in the other direction [from leg position]!
