    A bigger issue would be convincing anyone that it’s a vehicle. But I think only vehicles can get parking tickets.

    Generally, only the biggest or stupidest cities don’t allow you to leave your vehicle parked on the street indefinitely.

    Examples: Biggest: NYC. Stupidest: Providence (when I lived there, anyway). Both: SF.

    That makes me hopeful some of the people who said they’d move to Canada if Obama or Trump won will do it (no-one did).

    We’ll be better off without losers who think one President can really make that much of a difference, even in 8 years.

    It takes long time to turn around an oil tanker, and the U.S. takes a lot longer still. That’s by design: even with significant parts mostly ignored, the Constitution set it up to keep the country on an even keel.

    (Yes, I know I extended the nautical metaphor well past its expiration date. Sorry.)

    This is still better than the “normal” pun strips. That’s 2 in the same week. I hope it means he’s learned his lesson.

    2 strips involving puns that were better than the “normal” pun strips he subjected us to for years, that is.

    Johnny Cougar. Does that help?

    For sure, if Annie Awful’s running it, suspicion seems warranted.

    A small town big enough for its own high school still has several thousand people, which means thousands in the target demographic. At 50 or so women per party, it would take a lot of parties to invite them all. (Probably enough to go back to the beginning of the list and make it a permanent thing.)

    Dude, unless you’re impossibly good-looking or lucky or have seldom gotten a girl’s number, you should know that most girls rarely give their real numbers.

    I figured Les saying he’s putting them on the list for the next one (so it’s obviously not a one-time thing) makes the “this is the second party” theory Gold.

    Plus, why would they bother giving the whole party thing several days’ strips unless they were eventually going to make it significant? By extending it to a string of parties, they’ve got a lot more rope.

    Wow. It reminds me a little of how bacon and eggs became an American breakfast: marketers for bacon asked Doctors which was a better breakfast, toast, or bacon and eggs. That became a marketing campaign “Doctors recommend bacon and eggs for breakfast.”

    Of course, “cereal is part of this nutritious breakfast” isn’t any better (cereal is the worst part of that breakfast).
