Panel 2: Rather an unnecessary shot. What do we gain by knowing that he's tying up the bag?
Panel 3: He also runs like a woman.
Panel 4: Did he actually run out into the street to chase the truck?
Panel 5: Well, dude, perhaps if you didn't wait until the last minute to take the trash out, you wouldn't have to do this. Also, I wonder if he's okay with having to dirty up his brand-new Crevasse with this, or if it's only train junk he anticipated hauling?
Panel 6: Boy, is he mad! Oooohhhh...
Panel 7: You know, if I just saw this panel by itself, I'd wonder if Elly's body was in the back of the 'Asse.
Panel 8: Ah, jeez: another Patented Patterson Look. The one they get when they're taken aback at how non-virtuous the rest of the world is.
Panel 9: Well, how far do you want to take that analysis, John? You could say that a society that has door-to-door trash pickup is, in a sense, spoiled. And a society where people drive fuel-guzzling, polluting SUVs is spoiled. And you're awfully far from your vehicle to be carelessly leaving the hatch open like that. And what's in those bags, anyway? Better not be any soft-drink cans.
I am curious as to how that TV got its screen shattered like that. [ramble]Years ago, my dad told me to never, ever get a magnet anywhere near a TV set. I asked him why not, and he said because the picture would be distorted...permanently. He also said that if we ever had a TV set that was destined for the junkyard, he'd let me put a magnet on it just for the heck of it. But either I forgot, or it never came to that. He did, however, let me put a piece of black construction paper on the screen, with a hole cut out (of the paper) so I could try to figure out what was happening from that little bit of the visual. That was kind of fun.[/ramble]
