Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for November 22, 2009
Voice: AIIEEE! Zipper: Now that's entertainment! Man: Did you know the average season of "24" has twelve torture scenes? That means Jack has to torture someone twelve times a day! Zipper: Well, it's not meant to be realistic, is it? Man: Realistic enough that GITMO interrogators watched the show for ideas. Zipper: Wow... now that's making a difference! The writers must be proud! Man: Rightly so... it's not easy to keep torture fresh season after season - or to find new ways for Jack to agonize over it. Zipper: Jack agonizes twelve times a day? Man: Has to. Keeps everyone in the clear morally.
