You must be loving life. I run layaway at Wal-Mart, and that can be absolute (insert fiery underworld of your choice here). I don't even want to think about what a toy store is like before Christmas...or any time of the year. Children scare me.

But who cares about my life. Who indeed? There should be more comic strips based on the experience of retail. This will do. Oh, will it do...

Ooh! Ooh! And, I'm bettin' my money on these two:

Mary: You all know the term "starving artist" of course. Well, Mary's an artist...and how desperate might she be if her art isn't bringing home the bread? (And so what if she's married? Like those ever last...)

Bart O' Ryan: The attorney for Shortpacked! It only makes sense that a toy company would be lead by the products of the world's evil and corruption.

Oh yes. I would love this.

REI: So, you DO like me?
CAL: No. I'm just saying that's not the reason.

They aren't. It was pretty clearly explained that the silhouette was that of the Cheese.

If you were to ask me who would return, I'd almost expect Joe the toy-fiend to be one of them.

Maybe it's set in the old IW! universe... and we'll see news articles and/or TV broadcasts of the conquering heroes. :D

So, is Galasso his first name or his last?

I think that Transformers: Armada's Sideswipe should work there. It's not like anyone else wants him.

Well, Retail Weekly may be defunct, but the archives are still a decent read.

And I won't mention mine, because it's currently not set at a TRU-by-any-other-name.

I'm guessing that's his first name.

I *know* that. Do I *have* to label every joke I make with [sarcasm][/sarcasm] tags? I thought it would be obvious enough not to need it...

(and I *still* think there's a deeper connection between Robo-Vac and the Wanderer than DW has been telling us--see my first post for elaboration)

My pre-renovation sig explained that I reserved the right to be an asshole whenever I wanted. I still reserve that right.

I'm confused

Postby Cypriss on Tue Feb 01, 2005 5:47 pm

will this be a comic with continuity? Beyond hireing people such as, Will there be a plot like in It's Walky or a series of gags connected only bye characters like in Roomies:Redux ?
