A single-panel Lockhorns comic. Loretta is looking at her smartphone and says to a friend 'Leroy's now on TikTok, so I'm doing a lot of doomscrolling.''


It’s been well-documented that the Lockhorns are millennials. Even though this is word salad (can one doomscroll TikTok?) I appreciate that this is one of the few legacy strips making an effort to keep its non-aging characters continually updated, as opposed to… whatever was happening in Guy Gilchrist’s Nancy:
