    There are some comics that I just don’t get…

    Oh, wait. Is it because his scantily clad attire is turning on the loan guy, and he wants to see more? Creepy.

    Is the loan officer being cross with the cross-dresser ?

    Probably to make SURE they can find him when he defaults

    @GotBeer

    Why are your type allowed to be running around loose?

    “So, what do you do for a living?”
    “I’m a lumberjack…”
    GET OUT!”

    But for that photo, I want you to wear a French Maid outfit.

    …it’s a loan APPLICATION. It all may look good on paper, but when the approval officer sees the photo, it’s probably going to raise LOTS of red flags…

    My thoughts too, they will have concrete evidence when they deny the loan.

    Jadoo, Loy, Jeff….


    No, it’s not that most of us don’t understand your take on it….

    It’s that we don’t think a guy merely wearing a dress would or should be a reason to deny him a loan…. and it would be illegal to do so.

    Plenty of people who enjoy wearing clothing of which you disapprove for one reason or another are perfectly upstanding, bill-paying, responsible citizens, homeowners and employees.


    We truly hope the cartoonist wouldn’t agree, either, with your narrow-minded prejudice….


    So we’re looking for the real interpretation.

    Susan, Susan, Susan. I would hope by now you would know I am neither narrow minded nor prejudiced. I in no way even implied such in my comment. I can’t speak for the others you singled out, but I feel you crossed a line in your diatribe.


    Please look a little closer at my comment and you will see it in no way exhibits any personal feelings one way or the other.


    If you see me as a narrow-minded bigot because of what I thought the author was saying, does that mean you see GotBeer as a pervert? What about Chizzel’s implication that cross-dressers can’t be trusted?


    I used to hold you in pretty high esteem, but you are reading way too much into my comment. Finally, since Mr. Unger died last year, this strip could have been written years ago when people might have gotten the joke, or maybe it wasn’t funny then either.

    Nah, he looks like a flake, human judgement should include presentation which would include likelihood of being able to repay the loan.

    Violation of social norms affect long-term prospects. If I went into a bank wearing a parka, tutu, bikini or other unexpected attire, reasonable people would want to check me out closely. (As soon as they finished retching.)
