Hey, grampa, let’s go stare at strangers

Slylock Fox – June 25th, 2013


You have no idea how long I puzzled over this random old man throwing his money at a little boy. The boy’s sly smile combined with the dog’s uncomfortable glances make me assume some kind of highly illegal transaction was taking place. Best case scenario, that boy’s responsible for the bones lying around.

I felt pretty stupid when I realized he was letting them buy ice cream.

    I didn’t realize it was for ice cream either. An ice cream truck or stand would’ve helped me figure it out.

    The girl looks worried for those kids eating the ice cream. Maybe she suspects it’s poisoned. Alternatively, maybe she’s just concerned about the spread of childhood obesity, and seeing more well-fitting shirts become belly shirts.

    The thing that is truly frightening is that the number of dollar bills has decreased from panel 1 to panel 2. That leaves two possibilities…

    1. The boy was apparently holding out for more cash in the transaction and grandpa had to use his last $20 to meet the price. “Illegal transactions were a lot cheaper in the old days.!”

    2. Grandpa upon seeing the goods that were being transacted realized that it wasn’t worth his hospital co-pay and decided to lower the price. Especially seeing that there were better prospects literally coming down the road.

    I take it back. what is really much more creepier is Grandpa’s suggestive eyebrow wiggles in panel 1, and the fact that they disappear in panel 2.
