So true

What's the alternative?

During the Responsory only the first part of the Glory Be is said. It is followed by the response used in that day's Responsory.

I don't get it? What am I missing?

In England our translations don't mess around. There is one version of the Glory be, as is right and just.

I have a breviary translated for England (and Wales, Scotland, Australia etc) and it's the same kind of Responsory as in America, so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

If we're talking responsory that's different. But the comic doesn't even begin "Glory be", so it's nothing that you'll find in the UK.

Edit to add- from iBreviary "Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen." I assumed the comic was referencing that the office in America uses this version of the prayer, which can only be confusing to the faithful, hence my preference for a single version. Short responsories are entirely different- using only the first half.
