CPAP-MAN, WATSON by Jim Horwitz
This strip is very silly and weird. A “Cpap” machine is a machine people with sleep apnea or upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) wear at night so they can breath. I know several people who wear these at night, all of them lovely people. Sleep disorders aren’t an area of health that get a lot of play in Comics, so I thought this might be cute. The joke here, if you haven’t figured it out, is just a word switch with the “PAC” in Pac-Man to “PAP” in Cap. — Not rocket-science. Just a little letter-jumbling. If you didn’t get it or did get it and found it awful, you’ve hit the nail on the head. – What the hell does Pac-Man have to do with sleep disorders? The answer is: nothing at all.

Congratulations! You’ve made it to ROUND 2.
…Get ready to play again.
