Thanks again for using my Amazon Affiliate links (US, UK, Canada).
A friend of mine - currently on holiday in the US - visited Sunnyside yesterday after I showed him this strip.
Why are there so many comments asking what the unpleasantness was? It's made perfectly clear right there in the last panel!
My understanding is the unpleasantness refers to a wave of horse masturbations carried out by a bunch of kids. The horses were unharmed, but who wants to think that their town is filled with kids who have nothing better to do than jack off horses?
If you google "bad stuff about sunnyside washington," the entire first page is about payday loans places. I presume the unpleasantness had to do with the entire town getting loans all at once and being foreclosed on.
