    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?

    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.
