I think this is the best strip to date.
Those “If you see something” posters really piss me off. They’re all over the place. Anyone here actually call those hotlines, or know of someone who did?

we have that same campaign in Boston, too. I love when they turn on the crackly PA system, and you think they might be about to tell you something interesting (“medical emergency at Park Street — heh heh you guys know what that means!”), but no. It’s just the commissioner telling you to rat out swarthy types.

If we had the need for a subway here, we might have those signs…
Great strip!

We have a large international airport here, and there are BIG lighted signs on the interstate inviting drivers to call 911 to report suspicious activity. I’m always tempted to call and report that some dumbass built an airport practically on top of the two busiest interstates in the metro, and it makes me suspicious that they were stoned at the planning meetings.

The 3 times i drove to DC this summer from RI i was passing signs in maryland that said “report broken down cars” and a * number. Well i passed like 4 and i also did notice 3 cops driving past broken down vehicles.. it was a bit out of hand. So.. i dont think that campaign was effective

definately nice one! kinda been lurkin’ on the site for a minute now, and this is one of my favs.

And your post about the HS chick—reminds me of a conversation that I had with a friend who moved here (I’m a native NYer mysef) where she said she truely felt like a NYer when she had a subway crush-some guy she saw on the same train every morning. I had the same thing with this girl when I was in HS. Always would get on at Clark St. on the 2/3.

Anyways-keep up the good work!

So…what happened at the store when you went to buy that Barbie…

I can see it now:
“Aren’t you a bit old for toys? And don’t you have too much of a penis for a Barbie?”

Again, no Lindsay Lohan doll there? Hell, I’ll buy you one, Bernie, if you use it every once in a while.

Otherwise, great strip.

A Lindsay Lohan doll? I don’t even want to think about how Bernie might “use it” every once and a while.

And you guys: Bernie (like me) is old. No one’s gonna think twice if he goes to buy a Barbie doll; they’ll just assume it’s for his kids…

In a couple of months, he can indeed get a Lindsay Lohan Barbie.

Yes, it looks about as much like her as the guy from Wednesday’s strip looked like Charles Barkley.

I am indeed an elder citizen, but no way do I look old enough to have kids of my own. I just work out a deal with any random 8-year-old girl I happen to find: she buys me Barbies, I buy her cigarettes.

When I visited Melbourne (my home city) recently, I saw the funniest signs.

The gist of the signs were: Railway ticket inspectors are only doing their job when they ask to see your ticket. Please, pretty please with a cherry on top, don’t jump out of the moving train to avoid getting a fine.

(Months early, a 15 year old boy without a ticket jumped out of a train thinking he’d be okay like in the movies.)

Thats what you get for following your penis instead of your mind.

But did you ever throw up on the Long Island Railroad when its crowded with passengers? I don’t think so.
