Bif! Bash! and Bop! Seems things are gettin’ Intense!
Awww, Glueface cheated and pulled a BIG gun.
My man, that ain’t Glueface! Gun with a cork in the muzzle and he says “Reach for the Big Top”? Next episode is “Carnival of Carnage”? Got to be Clown Crumb come looking for some payback. Or maybe still looking for his teeth. Possibly both.
But back to our action! Yikes! She pulled out all the stops and took a PLUNGER to ‘im. She opened a serious can of the Whoop Ass. Gotta hand it to Bunz – when she gets worked up she don’t hold back. (I kinda like that in a girl.)
She could’a been really nasty and gone after him with a ruptured feather pillow…
Gosharooties, Temp Fans! Yeah, that’s gotta be the Clown Crumb of Crime! How’d he get out of the slammer so fast? Disguise himself as a sack of garbage and get “takin’ out the trash?’ Put pressure on the warden (“Cut me some slack, Screw, or I release these photos of you and a underage Wombat?” Or did he just pack himself into a Morris Minor with 17 other clowns, and drive out honkin’ his rubber nose?
A somewhat beat-up Glueface is still on the ground. See the hand reaching up. Someone sucker punched our anti-hero (hero temp) from behind. And now maybe someone else again holds the (uh) pop-gun. That or they took their good time in circling about.
Ahh… To be fair, I reUploaded the page last night with several small alterations & retouches… I also added the grasping hand in the final panel (it wasn’t there when the Dude posted his comment)…
At times readers make interpretations of the comix that surprise me – I’m so locked into seeing the strip one way that I sometimes miss other possibilities… As such, I added the fingers to make it a bit clearer that the hand with the gun is NOT Glueface’s…
Ah man, Jerry Lewis just cashed in his chips. Say what you will about Lewis alone – Martin and Lewis were freakin funny.
Well, durn. Back in the day, I laughed my head off at some of Lewis’s solo movies, such as “The Nutty Professor.” They may be a bit dated in America now, but the French still think he was a great artist.
Also, Haruo Nakajima, the man in the rubber Godzilla suit has stomped Tokyo for the final time… He apparently also played one of the Bandits in the Seven Samurai – I wonder if he’s recognizable in any of the shots?
Josh, the methods of Jerry Lewis, and his often physical comedy, and Godzilla with environmental concerns were at one point on the same page. To emote either joy or triumph Haruo Nakajima (or whoever was in costume) had to leap high in the air wearing the ponderous Godzilla suit and kick their feet together. There are plenty of posters of the giant monster taking on the Japanese Defense Force or trampling a wayward humanity, or locked in a death grip with monsters of ill intent. But where are the posters of Godzilla kicking his heals in the air, in a moment of great joy?
Beats Me! I’ve been rewatching the “Seven Samurai” in Slow-Mo, to see if I could spot Haruo Nakajima among the Bandits – but it’s harder to do than I’d thought… Darn it all, none of the Bandits seem to be wearing a Green Dino Costume!
He’s the one with the sword. Hope that helps.
