LOL. The first Panel just makes the whole comic. Amazing, as always, Scott.
The hat is a dead giveaway.
Lol old comic but still funny as hell.
I like to watch crime investigation documentaries (not the scripted stuff - it's way too believeable)Sadly, there are still plenty of police who really just "like" a suspect without processing any evidence to see what it shows...And then the jury convicts the suspect because he "showed no emotion" (Maybe because he's a little uncomfortable in front of a roomful of people who "just know" he's guilty)...And then, ten years later, The Innocence Project pays to have the evidence processed, which proves it was somebody else, the prosecutors refuse to admit they made a mistake, but the conviction is overturned anyway, and TRU TV (because we can't spell "true", and anyway, we're not really...) does a documentary.Scott has it too right - to hell with fingerprints, just book 'im.
ALWAYS wear a bathrobe while investigating a crime scene.
Never trust a man wearing a cumberbund without a bowtie.
I don't know, I only see one person in that room with sinister-looking facial hair (which, as we know, is how you recognize the killer)
@apl0discordFezzes are cool
I LOVE Colonel Sanders Rick!
@MThe classic Mark Trail approach. Never fails.
@Dee,I'm so glad I don't live in a country where a bunch of random people can put someone in jail.
This one cracks me up - I've read it a dozen times! Good work Scott.
And a big Hi to any visiting Android users <3
I love any strip with the smoking jacket, Rick's Kentucky Fried Boss Hogg suit, and a fez . . .
My God, is that Xander Crews in panel 2?
If you think this strip is funny, you might appreciate Larry Blamire's excellent movie "Dark And Stormy Night", which is this level of detective work taken to 11 for an hour and a half. Yes, there are smoking jackets! And a fez, worn by an undead floating head called Gunny Gunny Luckcakes. Don't forget to shoo away the tiny invisible balloon mice...
Angry Client would have made an awesome suspect
