FLoP in the funny papers

One of our little pleasures around here is collecting curious conjunctions, and one of the species we collect involves incomplete or hard-to-access parallelism of shared final constituents (e.g. "More risky RNR", "FLoP and anti-FLoP"). Here's one from yesterday's Zits: "... an hour to myself without somebody wanting me to cook for, clean up after or drive them somewhere".

[See here for Neal Whitman's arguments that FLoP should be called RNW ("right node wrapping").]
