I briefly contemplated going in an “Orally”  ”Orly?” “Yarly!” direction here but…um…didn’t.

As is, I’m worried this one might be too obvious, and I hate that the guy’s mouth is hanging open in the beat panel (such are the perils of only having 800,000 pieces of royalty-free clip art to choose from.)  But it amused me, and I like the ambiguity of whether the guy’s pulling the waitress’s leg or genuinely not right in the head (at least it seems ambiguous from here – you guys and gals may feel differently.)

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP:  *Snort!*  All right, you got me.  Are you happy?
