Home: Sweet Home Chicago.
The April fool is Shaky
To pull his gun so rash
Should have grabbed sweet Edison
And made a lightning dash
To hide among live evergreens
A cabin far away
Instead, he brandishes his piece
Is sure to rue the day
He turned his back on Edison
Became an April fool
Let go a lovely flower
And embraced a fate most cruel.
Roy can be an April fool year-round. His hair grows faster than Ellie and Hubbs’ Vegas prize. Just a trim, angry Charlene. Put away that horrid bowl.
If the Cabinet were comprised of ethical adults, article 25 would have been invoked by now. Sad.
It would have been smart for him to toss the weapon he used to shoot Tess, which makes me think he still has it.
It is clearly Shaky’s dialogue in the second panel. Edison has walked away. Shaky sits in the car and notices the group of construction workers nearby. He is armed, so why not force Quiver to step on it? While I don’t expect or want the strip to be scrupulously realistic, construction sites are fenced and gated. Shaky may be in for a rough reception.
It looks like Edison has gone her own way. Strike two in the criminal squeeze department. Who is next? Purdy Fallar…if he is up and about?
Give that man a Vegemite sandwich!
Coney Island: A Film by Ric Burns (1991) is not to be missed. It is part of the American Experience Series from PBS.
The “Give Jar” is a sneaky con
At first glance just a trifle
Yet drop enough around the town
Soon through sweet bills you’ll rifle.
Shaky restless on the lam
Helps Quiver grab up cash
Lay low with lovely Edison
Decide best time to dash.
Yet all best plans by this dim bulb
Soon sure to go awry
To lose the touch of Edison
Would make a grown man cry.
Not your call, Roger. It is up to Mr. Cho, and he respects Brandy far more than do you. Bounce.
