    I’ll give you a nickel if you find it.

    I see Joy has a matching set of Shut Up cups.
    How did that happen?

    Had that been Burl’s own nickel, he would have known – a sudden sensation of pocket lightness, a disturbance in the Force, an unexplained pain in his heart as a loved one passed out of his life – so it can’t be his. Perhaps someone less bonded with their cash has been in the house?
    Course, with Joy’s chousekeeping methods, it could have been there for years. How did Burl find it? Searching for a reluctant peanut, perhaps?
    Of course if it IS Dale’s nickel, this doesn’t mean he gets it back – they just want to know where it came from, not return it. After all, Dale will have caused at least a nickel’s worth of wear to the cushion while he sat there.

    Today’s strip is a fantasy. Drug-induced or not, I don’t know, but fantasy it is. Does anybody really believe that if either Burl or Joy found a coin, even a “penny” in the couch they wouldn’t just slip it into their pocket without missing a step?
    I’ll bet that both of them frequently find loose change in the purses of their female guests. I wouldn’t put it past Burl to siphon gas from the unwary.

    It’s gotta be a dream sequence. This COULDN’T be real. It’s impossible that either one of them would be honest or un-greedy enough. Pass me the BB, would’ja please?

    Well… it was only a nickel, after all.
    For five cents they can show how honest and loyal they are to their friends…
    posture and preen and get more than 5¢ worth of credit…
    5¢ for a buck fifty-three worth of glow.

    Now had it been a $20 bill…
    no way would that sucker have seen the light of day…
    not for any longer than the two seconds of travel between the couch cushion and Burl’s pocket.

    In fact, I doubt even Joy would ever hear about it.
    But he might feel secretly guilty…
    just enough to spring for the Big Lots $2.99 imitation Obsession (which smells like an old tobacco tin) for Christmas,
    instead of the Dollar General version (which smells like dirty socks.)

    No, this is reality. Burl “sofa dives” after guests leave. He’s actually gloating about. Typical Burl. He is the sofa king cheapskate of Crustwood.

    This strip is a gas. Well, it gives me gas.

    Joy for goodness sake: RINSE OUT THAT BLOUSE! I wonder how many envelopes of change they have, or how long they keep them before deciding no one is claiming them. I’m guessing 1 hour?

    Totally a fantasy or dream; I agree with that, tho Susan DOES have a point. At least they can give the APPEARANCE of honesty for such a trifling ammount – - NO! It’s fantasy!
