^ He isnt Joseph Fritzel love…

Once I read the explanation, it all made sense- jokes for clever people make me feel dumb. She likes being felt up though…

Before I read the explanation I thought the joke was that they found an underground passage leading the golf course tunnels made by the “Caddyshack” gopher except you messed up by having a squirrel instead of a gopher and I couldn’t remember if the original gopher wore sunglasses and what would that have to do with the storyline anyway but it was a good guess eh?

Haha just spent the last two days reading from comic 1. iLaLp! I hope Abe and Preston get everything changed back to normal. Btw anyone see this?

Initially I thought the same as Richard, I didn’t get the joke because it’s a culturally internal joke. In German it would be a blind hen finding a grain of corn. ;)

Thanks for the explanation, in my language it goes like “Even a blind chicken finds a grain once in a while.” :)

@ Patrick- yeah, we saw that video when it was posted; 2 years ago. Its still awesome though, very much in the spirit of ALP. Took me more than 2 days to read all the comics when I first found this place though….

I wonder if Peter King reads your comic. Used the same expression, and its the only two times I have ever heard it

That last panel threw me completely. I was trying to work out why there was a blind squirrel with a spliff erupting from the ground. I think the book / expression must be an American phenomenon. Over here in Europe I’ve never heard the expression.

I think actually I’d have preferred it if you hadn’t explained it. It would be just one of those nice bits of inexplicable weirdness in the world.
