    To give an idea of how overused the “Hi, Jack” joke really is, Wile E. Coyote used it in a 1970s’ “Road Runner” comic book.

    Angry Bob got a free massage when he arrived. But not the kind of massage he wanted.

    This is like the film crew arrested at the airport because they said they were going to shoot a pilot.

    I thought that’s what I did but it didn’t turn into a “live” link when I pasted it into the PBS comment box.

    Either Pastis or Rat is getting soft in his golden years – usually Angry Bob gets “whacked” at the end of his stories.

    At the risk of sounding like Vern from the Stand by Me movie: Why would the flight attendant wait for them to begin the descent…? Seems like it would be much more appropriate game for the beginning of the flight.

    At least Angry Bob survived this story (Rat usually kills him off in some painful way.)

    I’ve never been to Vegas but I would say that I love the bright lights.

    My great grandfather broke his foot stomping the ground while laughing at this alleged joke.

    That’s an old joke, I first heard it back in the 70’s when the joke was that someone shouted Hi to his friend Jack across a crowded waiting lounge and got tackled and arrested by a nearby security guard.

    “Fun is overrated.” Yes, Rat. That is the take-away from today’s strip.Who would really expect an original joke within an “Angry Bob” story?

    If you have a friend named Eugene, the cleanest thing you can say is, “Hi, Gene.”

    I used to work on a graphics conversion program called Hijaak. When I flew, I didn’t dare talk about my job!
