'Mutt and Jeff' funnier than ever

Published:Saturday | August 27, 2016 | 8:00 AMOlive Nelson

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I have always found the Mutt and Jeff duo quite funny, but never quite as funny as how they appeared in last Sunday's edition sharing bed for the first time ever.

It seems the creators of this comic strip have quietly latched on to the homosexuality-promotion agenda. Then you mean that after all these decades of gleeful girl-chasing, Jeff has now allowed himself to be converted to an alternative lifestyle? Or had he been a closeted homosexual all these years?

And what is Mutt's story - born bisexual or socialised homosexual? So. have we seen the last of poor Mrs Mutt, who, come to think of it, has been out of the picture for quite some time now? Or will she be turning up at the next hen party in the company of Blondie and Tootsie?

Or, am I reading too much into this? God help us.
