I don’t often use content from real life. I don’t want the Zack and Flash to tell “inside jokes.” This is one of the few things from our lives that can translate into being funny for others. Rob also helped sell it by how funny Sloth looks in the last panel.
It will always be a great line. I’m glad I found a way to work it into a strip.
*** I’d also like to mention that we sell shirts. Go buy a shirt from us and show the world how cool you are. If you don’t do it soon, you won’t be able to claim you liked Five and Dime Comics before it was cool. We don’t want you to lose street cred. So go buy a shirt. ***
