*eyes panel three*  I may have drawn a nostril here.  What is this bullshit.

Anyway, I think this strip needs more room for Joyce to develop her thoughts.  She doesn’t quite get from A to B well enough for my tastes, choosing to spend panel time on the portion of the train of thought that gets us to the final panel, but not enough of the rest of the train for me to be completely sold on this.  In a world before using a more space-efficient typeface, I think this probably needed another strip, maybe give Joyce some room to talk about how This Is Joe, I Need A Different Approach.
