For help on how to follow a comic title,
As contrasted with English, where a word may have multiple meanings and pronounced the same. Running FAST is not the same as standing FAST, and both differ from choosing to FAST rather than to eat. Forget how many meanings the compilers of the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) found for the word ‘run’.
In democratic Athens (where Socrates was condemned to death for telling kids to ask questions) they had a form of jettisoning called ostracism. The biggest jerk in the place could be voted into exile for five or ten years… Any chance we could introduce it in the US?
The idea of a vacuum cleaner in space doesn’t suck.
Tracy lost his sense of humor. This is the perfect time to request, “Sam, call me an ambulance.” And after Sam replies, “Okay, you’re an ambulance,” Tracy could have been in stitches all the way to the hospital… Or maybe the stitches are after the hospital.
I believe the Golden Age comic hero Bob Phantom appeared in a puff of smoke… But more likely it is Punjab enjoying the fact the old black-and-white strips didn’t show color.
The ancient among us, who can remember the dinosaur age prior to computers didn’t need those dang-blasted easy paste emojis. We made our own, by banging pieces of flint together! :-)
I am not certain, but I believe that when a police officer is conducting an investigation it is his/her job to say when the conversation has gone on long enough and not the person being questioned. (Although at that point Daddy can call in his mouthpiece/lawyer to talk for him.)
Tracy continues: “We don’t ask about his wives and he gives us a couple million a year for the Police Widow’s Fund, and fifty grand for the Policeman’s Ball… It always seemed like a fair arrangement to me.”
If there were any kind of linear chronology, but since it jumps all over the place Trixie will have gone missing before Annie ever entered the picture… At least that’s my prediction. And no explanation will be offered for why the case against B-B Eyes rests on a deposition made more than twenty years earlier.
She disappeared in 1932… No surprise the police have lost the sworn statement. Wonder how she knew about B-B Eyes crimes… Let’s hope when Dick Tracy finds her that she’ll have lost the urge to eliminate Annie and be a kinder and gentler Trixie Tinkle.
