    After reading Barticle35’s post, I feel better. I thought it was just me.

    I could kind of get the feeling of the first two panels but got lost by the end.

    @barticle, davidf and Logan: he’s a young man bored, with nothing exciting on the horizon (a town full of pickle faces, a balloon with passin’ footsteps). Can’t listen to the radio because someone’s on the phone (tin cup conversation.) There’s a policeman he can’t get around (would tan under a streetlight — not been around much) spoiling his fun with his slingshot. But that won’t stop him; he’s going to give the cop a run for his money (“no pansy hunt”), and not leave him with nothing to do (give him the stand up.) There; I hope that helped. And Logan, nice to see you again.

    Thanks. I figured the tin cup conversation was probably about the phone but the rest was a little too hep for this old cat, lol.

    I don’t get on the comments section of very many of the strips, or I just read what others have said. I learn a lot from this one though.
