    Thus ends Jeff’s employment at Overkill.

    This is like déjà vu with Havoc and the Warlord.

    I get a heady rush and all goose bumpy every time I offer someone 50 mil. Try it, you’ll see !  Don’t be around when they come to collect; you might meet the shooter guy in Dick Tracy.

    OK, I withdraw my post from Friday – this is undoubtedly Jeff. Offer the Prez $50 mil for cooperation? Heck, Overkill could have done that much himself without the “Red Rascal.”

    About a year ago, Jeff did fairly much the same thing, overbidding for services, in negotiating with a war lord. Instead of being beheaded by the war lord, as apparently Havoc was intending to happen, the offer probably saved Jeff.

    The big problem here isn’t so much the $50 million - it’s that once word gets out about this offer (and it will) the other Afghanistan officials are going to want a commensurate increase in their inducements. If Trudeau’s past patterns prevail, it will probably be 2-3 weeks at least before we see a continuation of this storyline. It’s going to be interesting to see if Overkill is any more tolerant than Havoc regarding Jeff.

    Really, you could just cut and paste last year’s dialouge in that last panel.

    Overkill: “You WHAT?!:

    Idiot: “Called an audible, boss! Got us a sweet new deal!”

    $50 million is nothing compared to what Bush spent over there………

    The best bikinis!! The best shoes!! The best, er, I mean, at least Red Rascal started the negotiation ball rolling. $50 M is just another business expense and can be paid with stimulus funds.

    Overkill may think that the “offer [Karzai] couldn’t refuse” is an allusion by Jeff to The Godfathers (1972), or possibly to the video game (2005?) based on Corleone’s Mafia.

    But what does that have to do with Karzai owning “horses”? Are the “horses” some kind of slang that means controlling the stakes in whatever Mafia game they’re playing?

    In the first Godfather movie, a movie director was induced by the Godfather to do something. The Godfather had one of the director’s horses beheaded and the head placed in bed with him as he slept. Thus, he acceded to the “offer he couldn’t refuse.”

    The testorone in here is so thick you could cut it with a pharmacutical commercial.
