    This would, like, totally work.

    Clean up all the cartoon burglars…..

    AND get rid of silly masks, stripey sweaters, and flat caps.

    Wait — I like stripey sweaters. Maybe there’s a flaw……

    He’s got good peripheral vision, he’s looking before the clang of the gate!

    On another note, wouldn’t it be cool to dress up like that and carry white bags with a dollar sign on them down main street?

    @susanWhile we’re at it, we could also get rid of the mirrors physicianswear in comics. In RL only ENT specialists wear those.

    Elementary school age kids that scale out as two feet tall. I was that big at birth!

    Cannibals using cast iron cauldrons with live, clothed people inside.

    Ninja in black (assassination was rare, they mainly were spies and disguised as peasants, itinerant merchants, etc.).

    I happen to like “Cannibals using cast iron cauldrons with live, clothed people inside”.My favorite is when the guy in the pot is told “Close your eyes while I add the 13 secret herbs and spices”.I have friends with that comic (and other similar ones) all framed and hung in the kitchen :-)

    LOL@everybody.

    Of course, if we got rid of all the cartoon conventions, we’d never know who was a burglar, a doctor, or a cannibal.

    It might be your neighbor, or your best friend.

    No, better to keep the signs obvious, so when you see somebody wearing sunglasses and brandishing a six foot white stick, say, you’ll know he’s blind, rather than a thug.

    Anybody wearing a yellow crown is a king or a queen, and if somebody needs money, he should just get a coffee can and some paper for a sign.

    Something comforting about an identifiable world, complete with labels.
