Clinton’s Ditch isn’t the smallest of towns, but it’s small enough! I’m waiting for the news clip of the Niagara Street incident myself.
Now WHO could THAT be???! Let’s see – “scaly green…”
Add in Aldo’s liberal use of lampblack on the face, and you have sort of a “raccoony” appearance. Sort of. If you really stretch it.
I guess if a thigh high dinosaury-esqe reptile jumps out of the bushes at you, you’re too out of sorts to give a decent description of exactly what it was.
Dragoon, not racoon! I’m glad Gary followed my advice and cleaned up in the men’s room first. Just get on with the interview. He doesn’t know you’re OMJ’s son yet. Frank, I really like the way you’re handling Gary’s reactions in this arc.
OK, so Paul M. misheard “dragoon” but I wasn’t aware that OMJ knew about dragoons. Aren’t Gary & Eddie the only ones who know? So how could OMJ describe him as either a dragoon or a racoon (to which he bears no resemblance)?
Bald – You are correct in that Eddie and Gary, co-holders of Clinton’s Ditch’s biggest secret, are alone with knowledge of the society beneath them. Will this change? Not sure. Depending on Jenny’s involvement with Eddie, still to be determined (courtships don’t just happen over night even in comics strip world) she MAY be brought into the circle down the line.
Bald – One more thing … Old Man Jenkins did make an appearance in Maliszewski’s Hardware back on September 7, 2011 when he purchased top-of-the-line German cable cutters.
But the man who rang up the order was not Paul M., the owner, so Paul did not recognize OMJ today during the fracas with police.
@Bald…I didn’t mean that he misheard it, I was just saying what it was.
Sadly and predictably, when it comes to Dear Old Dad, Gary’s reactions range from horror to resignation. Having a hard time imagining a happy scenario between these two.
Frank, as I was looking at this again tonight, I wondered…How far does Gary have to tilt his head to the side to kiss a girl? I have visions of that nose getting tangled in her hair…unless she has a really short cut. I can imagine a few other scenarios where it could be problematic, but I’ll let everyone imagine their own.
I think girls would love “Oral sex” from Gary :evil laugh:
I .. umm … ah … Ok.
OMG, Wiseguy, I should have known better than to let YOU use your imagination. @BaldEagle, thinking of Pinocchio – now that’s a good one.
Gary’s got the same problem as Doonesbury. Peanuts kids were limited in what they could do, too, with their stubby little arms It’s the curse of being a comic character, you just have to work around their limitations.
Did Gary used to be Pinocchio? That would make OMJ – Geppetto. In that case I couldn’t blame Gary from shading the truth on occasion.
