You can read people’s minds in comic strips.  We’re accustomed to it.  We know that when words are contained within lumpy clouds that the words aren’t spoken aloud.

I watched ‘Young Frankenstein’ with my youngest kid yesterday.  It was his first time seeing it, and I became more attentive to what was onscreen knowing that.  I was pretty amazed at how much dialogue could be cut from that film because you could read the thoughts of the actors written, not in floating bubbles over their heads, but right there on their faces.  It was great.

And then there’s Bob.  I like Bob, but I’m thinking there may not be as much thinking going on as those around him might suppose.

We’ll see.
