Fred Bassett is like a humor black hole. Its anti-humor is so powerful, in fact, that any comic strip adjacent to it on the funnies page becomes less funny as a result of its close proximity.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this one. As you can see, In the first two panels, someone's voice is alerting Fred that it's time for dinner. The final frame has Fred bounding towards the voice. We learn that hearing that it's dinnertime is "Music to his ears". My question for the author is:
So fucking what!?
Is that funny? Hell, is that even mildly interesting? I'd argue that it's not. I mean, if the final frame went something like this...
...it's still not especially funny, but at least it's on the right track.
