There’s no one more acutely obtuse than Winky.
(This comic strip was previously published on February 3, 2011.)
I would opt out of
that question if I were
you Winky 🙂 lol
Here, have some of
my extra juicy wine
gums as a treat 🙂
Yeah, I’m probably not going to like the answer no matter what.
There’s some pancakes
and marshmallows for Fraz,
Binky and Twink too 🙂
It’s not far off Wombat Day now 🙂
Yay pancakes! I can’t wait for Wombat Day!
I can’t hear the word ‘obtuse’ without thinking of Shawshank. 🙂
I can’t think of obtuse without thinking of Winky.
Me too, Rosey!
It was the perfect comeback if I must say.
Thanks! I don’t think Twink liked it very much, though.
Exactly Winky! 😉
I’m glad I got something right!
There’s no point trying to insult Winky because he doesn’t know what the words mean. Very clever, Winky.
I know. Like water off a duck’s back.
He’s practically obtuse.
I don’t really practice at it, though.
What Bun Karyudo said.
Have a fabulous day. ☺
You think I’m clever, too!
Forget about it Winky! Instead just concentrate on this extra large platter of pancakes and fried spam!
Now that’s something I can concentrate on!
I thought you would!
Yummy food always gets my full attention!
Yay Winky is so good in geometry 👏🏼 teach me too will you?
I’ll teach you everything I know about geometry! It shouldn’t take long.
Good reply, Winky, and it’s clear that you have a math brain! 😉
I do? Some people don’t think I have any brain at all!
It’s OK Winky I Googled it for you as I wasn’t sure either.

(of an angle) more than 90° and less than 180°.
I’m pretty sure definition #1 isn’t what Twink had in mind. #2 answers your question
It better be definition 2! I don’t like #1 at all.
How about another definition?
“Rounded at the free end”
Well I am kind of round!
Any angle to get chocolate, I say
If angles get me chocolate, it’s worth it!
Okay Winky. Are you just being coy or is Twink right?!?
Great comic Peter! Made me laugh and think.
I’m not sure!
Winky and Twink…thank you for the new word. I have to google it first 😉
When you learn it, you can tell me!
