Geez Eno… what a pig!
He’s not very subtle, even though it sets up the punchline… :-P
On looks alone, Eno will fit right in! ;-)
My initial quick-read was “He cruises the streets in his Monte Carlo”… which wouldn’t surprise me… :-P
The NFL plays a few games in the UK every season (except the last one)…
They also play a game down Mexico way… Mexico City to be exact. ;-)
I imagine any (of us) brunettes would be “tall” to Calvin… :-P
I have to love that he knows about “Magnums”… both for firearms, and boozin’ ;-)
I searched the comments to see if anyone would recall that old show (starring Chuck McCann and Gilligan-himself: Bob Denver)… and I was not disappointed! ;-)
So where does the Inspector come up with his list of suspects anyway? Every murder ALWAYS has 4 suspects…
and – what if one of them went out during the rain for something completely unrelated? Are they going to hang because they wanted lunch and some guy they knew was killed somewhere else? ;-)
Never mind the name, I’m looking at the detail Rick gave Ellen’s eyes in Panel 2… ;-) `
That was one of the stories in the old Henry Huggins stories by Beverly Cleary – Henry’s dog retrieved all of the newspapers he delivered, so he had to go re-do the route all over… ;-)
Long ago, I had a boss named Jerry – he had the long, scraggly beard, glasses, smoked a pipe and always wore a green fatigue jacket. He had a very large beer belly, had difficulty walking, and had such a resemblance to “Jerry Garcia” from The Grateful Dead that he was mistaken for him a couple of times “back home” in Kentucky.
What I learned about this man was that his fatigue jacket was left over from his military days, complete with patches for “outfits that no longer existed” (his words). He told me he was a Green Beret in Vietnam (during the latter half of the war), which, given his appearance, was not immediately believed.
But then one day, he showed us his photos from his days in the service, and in country… new respect for ol’ Jerry, and may he rest in peace (he passed far too early in 2004). :-)
