After a long vacation sojourn, the comment of the week is BACK, everybody, and this is it:
“‘Truck? It’s Mud.’ Yep, that’s how I expect Rex Morgan characters to greet each other in person, all right. What, did you think we’d get out of listening to middle-aged phone conversation dialogue just because Truck and Mud are two feet away from each other?” –jroggs
And here are the runners up!
“Doctors have easy access to pharmaceuticals, right? Liberal use is the only way Jeff could be that excited about this conversation.” –Hibbleton
“I’ve tried to imagine what the funniest possible reveal could be here. So far, I think a big glossy photo of Elton John is the front runner. Not present-day Elton, mind you, but 1970s ‘Crocodile Rock’ Elton.” –pugfuggly
“Is there any pronouncement more ominous than Mary’s ‘Even so, who knows what’s happening in this town sight unseen?’ I’d be less horrified if she stuck out a forked tongue, spit fire, and declared ‘I am Moloch, Destroyer of Worlds.’” –Lawyerbob
“I hope Pop turns out to be a crackpot local inventor who made that watch that Gil is speaking out of. Has he implanted a mind-reading chip into Gil’s head? Or is some dark sorcery at work?” –Philip
“You’re just a few minutes away from a fiery crash off a cliff when your getaway driver is so crazed and nihilistic that his motto is ‘Why live?’ (oh, he’s probably pronouncing it ‘leyeve,’ isn’t he?)” —

“‘It looks like you’ve already found her, and trapped her in that tiny piece of paper!’ ‘That is a photograph, Mister Driver. You’ve never seen a … never mind … I’m beginning to reconsider my plan.’” –Voshkod
“It’s nice to see that Mary is finally coming to the realization that she tried to get Estelle and Wilbur to hook up.” –Tabby Lavalamp
“I don’t know who decided to give a pair of twin children a single Super Soaker™ to share, but whoever they are, they’re a master at trolling parents.” –Roto13
“Your kids sure know heat transfer and fluid flow science.” –Just John
“Usually business people accounts for earnings and losses of a company on a three-month period, and even then many consider that too short-term. Who knows what happened in July that affected sales. Production chain disruption, restocking, Dagwood accidentally ate a contract…” –Ettorre
“I want them to get into a fight, so the headlines will read ‘Truck-Mud Flap.’” –grsblvnyk
