    Tracy is wearing a yellow tie today to complete his color-coordinated ensemble with his yellow trench coat.

    I almost didn’t see Selfy hiding behind the feed bags in the first frame.

    .

    I didn’t see him either. Maybe we should have had a Gouldian-type arrow pointing him out.

    Another dead body, Selfy’s fingerprints all over the flask…Looks like it is time for Selfy to panic. This box Selfy finds himself in seems very Gouldian. In many cases, it was the villain’s panicking that eventually did him in.

    “Social Media Monitor” – I wonder if that is a thing in real life police work.

    .

    Google and Facebook have facial recognition software that is already in use. The DHS uses a similar technology to peg known terrorists as they try to enter the country. It is not a small leap to believe that a police department as technologically advanced as Tracy’s would also make use of similar technology. After all, if Smith Industries can invent air cars, wrist geenies, time travel, etc. is it unreasonable to believe they have also invented a facial recognition software that is beyond what we currently have in real life?

    Another good one, Pequod.

    It is interesting how a large portion of the original Posie story involved a lost hat. I wonder if Honeymoon is part of the field trip, or Joe? Perhaps this is Bonnie’s class on the trip. One of those snapshots will find its way to the MCU.

    I really like Joe’s portrayal of Mindy. She looks just like the buck-toothed, horse-faced Mindy Gould created.

    Another gem, Pequod.

    .

    I recall when it was first revealed that the new Moon Maid was Mindy, there was speculation about how much of Mindy and how much of Mysta was in the mix. We discussed how Mysta seemed to retain some of Mindy’s temper. We can only wonder right now whether or not seeing Posie will be a shock enough to bring some of those old memories and behaviors back to the forefront.

    I don’t think Posie could have predicted he would see Mysta driving. He may have been on his way to Diet Smith’s plant and the fact that Mysta happened to have just left there is simply coincidence (which is not unlikely since Mysta obviously comes and goes from Diet Smith’s on a regular basis). When Posie saw her he reacted impulsively and gunned his car through the intersection to stop her. Therefore, it is unlikely that this accident was any part of a plan by Posie.

    The original Mysta died when she borrowed Tracy’s boobie-trapped car. This Mysta borrows Diet Smith’s SUV and has an accident. I shall be forever nervous when I see Mysta driving a car.

    Judging by the traffic lights, they must be at an intersection.

    .

    Yesterday we could see that Posie’s car was approaching an intersection. But you are correct that this drawing doesn’t seem to make sense since neither street seems to go through. Another solution is that the drawing is done as if it is seen through a fish-eye lens.
