    He even fooled the police?

    Imagine that!

    “JEEBUZ!” Thick exclaims, jumping ten feet in fright, while Pistol Packin’ Penny is so startled by the return of Norton & Co. that she finally shoots D-cubed.

    And D-cubed really fooled everyone, except for that part where Thick went looking for him, and the Feds pursued him around the world.

    Gotta give Dick Locher credit. He sure outsmarted us. There wasn’t one of us who thought that it would be Spacy who stayed and it would be the rest of them who ran away. Nice to see them back, even if it’s without their guns being drawn while Spacy is threatened.

    Sorry, Mr Locher, this makes no sense whatever.

    Classic line if you think about it:

    “He had me pay off a funeral director to find a DEAD body and make sure everyone thought he was DEAD”

    Not too hard to fool the police in Napperville…

    Simon Penn’s in his own little world, where the tooth fairy really exists.

    She bribed a funeral director, et cetera …

    Uh-huh. I know this is lost on a pathetic creature like Locher, but the vast majority of funeral directors are like everyone else: they’re honest. Even if you could find one who’d take a bribe to hand over a corpse to a resurrection man, there’s this annoying bit of paperwork that goes on before a funeral or cremation. Someone at the mortuary has to sign off on the fact that the dead man is in fact dead, and is the proper center of attention.

    Now quite a few people work at mortuaries/funeral homes, so you’d have to bribe several people to ignore the hanky-panky. You’d also have to hope that none of the deceased’s family and friends want a final look at the body.

    Maybe you could get a body that was scheduled for cremation, and slip it out unnoticed before it and the coffin went into the oven. But you’d have to bribe the people at the crematorium to not notice anything fishy. And how do you transport the body? “I’ll take it in a doggie bag?”

    Next, welcome to the USA. Cadavers are embalmed here. How is the ME going to ignore that rather obvious condition? (I think Jewish mortuaries skip that, but I’m not certain.) Intercept the body before it’s delivered to the mortuary? Bribe several workers into dumping the body in a river/lake? And hope they never talk/don’t get caught?

    And then you have to hope that, somehow, the body rots enough to be unidentifiable, yet can be mistaken for D-cubed? And that–

    Phuqit. If you sold Swiss cheese with this many holes in it, you’d get busted for selling pure air.

    Flight Suit, Simon Penn’s comments yesterday really impressed me. I had no idea it was possible to get that drunk and still post.

    Oh, what fools we mortals be On this I think we can agree When we seek to make any sense Of a strip that is this dense Convoluted is the plot Of logic there is diddly squat It meanders and it wanders Its potential it wantonly squanders Capricious in its execution Lacking of any resolution A foul and fetid deed It mocks those who choose to read Like an oozing open sore It, we have come to abhor Its very sight now does offend And to it there seems no end It was once esteemed and respected Now it stands forlorn and dejected Once the object of praise and cheers Now it’s subject to derision and jeers The time has come at last For it to fade into the past Bury it deep and bury it well Let toll the funeral bell.

    GREAT Dick Tracy comic strip today. Solid drawings of America’s Favorite Detective!


    He’s not my favorite detective, Frank Drebin is.

    Maybe D-cubed really is dead, because he’s being remarkably silent amid all this talk. And what happens when Sue Doko appears to fill in the squares?

    Why would he want everyone to think that a dead body was dead?
