    Good morning™, all!

    Even Tracy finds it funny or confusing that Lugi has been replaced by Luigi.

    If there is anyone who doesn’t know, “Go Fish” is a card game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_Fish). I’ve heard of it, but haven’t played it. Someone will have explain if you know why Luigi is saying that in this situation.

    Sam hands Luigi off to Officer Milligan so he can circle around to the back door, but there is a BLAM from the room where we last saw Coffyhead and Bronko. That’s a bad sign for at least one of them.

    Tracy is mentioned – though not seen – over on “Gasoline Alley” today …

    Good morning™, recently deceased !

    Unless Bronko had one “up his sleeve” and drew first he is dead or at least badly injured. It is possible that Coffy fired a close round of intimidation and that the next one will hit pay dirt. Tracy knows to be very careful in opening this “Pandora’s box”. Ye gods !

    With that look on Tracy’s face when he hears that gunshot I think somebody’s liable to get terminated…

    To have L man say; “Go fish” today is another “Jump the Shark” moment in Dick Tracy history!

    Knowing Mike’s penchant for wantonly killing off Tracy’s rogues gallery…I’m thinking Coffyhead is dead fish dead

    Is searching a facility like that by ones self, sound police tactics? I know it’s done all the time on TV, but…

    Another Take  3 months ago

    1-DT: This would go quicker if you’d just tell me which chairs you tore the “DO NOT REMOVE” tags from.

    LOOGIE: GO F.I.S.H. That means Go Fish In Sea Harbor! It’s beautiful there. It’s the Fire Island of New York! DT: I thought…never mind. Get this punk outta my sight, Sam.

    2-SAM: I guess this raid is over then. DT: Yeah. Go ahead and take off. I’m gonna grab a cup of that coffee I smell. I’ll be along later.

    SAM: NOT IF I SEE YOU FIRST. DT: Dammit Sam. That’s not the way you use … oh, never mind. Moron

    3-DT: Hmmmm. PRIVATE. Must be where the enlisted men bunk BLAM

    YIKES! Uhhh. Come out peaceably whoever you are. I know you can’t see it but if you were to look closely you would see that my gun has a TWO-FINGER trigger guard. That means I can shoot two bullets to every one you fire. So you don’t have a chance. Hello? Hmmmm. I guess I’m hearing things. Help…

    DT: Now I’m hearing Beatle songs. I better go lie down…

    Everybody has on warm coats except Luigi. I just checked back to see if we’ve seen him outside and found him looking chilly last month: https://www.gocomics.com/dicktracy/2022/04/26?ct=v&cti=1714140

    Can this poor thug not afford a coat?

    In other news: I like Shelley’s use of the negative space in the “PRIVATE” sign on the door where Tracy’s head is casting a shadow.

    Luigi’s mom must have brought him up well with soapy mouthwashes; a more realistic response would go something like "GO **@#! YOURSELF COPPER!!

    @tsull2121, actually Mike’s tendency (unfortunately) is to bring back dead villains, Mumbles, Tonsils, etc. so even if Coffyhead is knocked off, just wait, he, or some “clone” will be back. Team Tracy evidently has never seen a new villain they liked.

    Not that I wish Bronko/Junior any ill,but I hope Coffy shot himself into life in solitary.

    If anybody wouldn’t be missed it was the ineffectual Tiger Lilly,but Mike hung onto him.

    ODDS AND ENDS—-

    Yesterday,WNET-13 had an AMERICAN MASTERS documentary on Duke Kahanamoku;the champion Hawaiian athlete/surfer who was Chester Gould’sinspiration for Haku Kou(1960).

    2.)I hope somebody else remembers.HermanWouk,the great author who wrote CAINE MUTINY and WINDS OF WAR.

    I saw a picture of him in his old age and I’d swear he was a ringer for Pruneface.He even wore the same style hat Pruneface wore back in 1942!!

    Also,crusading author Upton Sinclair’s regular breakfast was a cup of water and six prunes.

    So, Coffyhead has no CCTV monitoring going on, no way to know the police are raiding his drug operation, no way to know it’s time to get out the back way which the cops have left unguarded. Coffyhead, you’re no Gus Fring.

    BLAM? I hope Bronko didn’t get roasted by Coffyhead. But as far as we know only Coffyhead had a gun in there, and his potential target was Bronko. So, it looks like Tracy may be just seconds too late breaking into the Private office. Maybe Tracy will get a dying statement from Bronko, a.k.a. Stuntman Mike, before he expires. Of course, we must also consider the little matter of the “armed and dangerous” Coffyhead, if we follow through on this possible scenario. We all know what happens to thugs who dare try a shootout with Deadeye Dick!
