    Hahaha, random unwanted sexual advances are funny!

    Ironically, Ed is old enough to have done the same thing on the actual V-J day.

    He’s not kissing her: he’s turning her into a Crankpire.

    All right Ed, he still has fire in him and not just his grill and house.

    3rd panel that was removed, Ed laying on sidewalk after she smacks him with that bag that has a brick in it.

    “…Of course, deliveries are backed up for 6 months!” Ed shrieks, goes all Hiroshima on…a storefront that has not been seen since 1950. At least Tom knows his audience: Angry old relics.

    Who cares how old she is? Who says she’s not desirable anymore? There are plenty of older men who would love to date her. I’m almost 65 and I wouldn’t want Cranky hugging me like that, I’d push him away and tell him to keep his hands to himself unless he wanted me to call the police!

    Ed’s statement to the police will say: “I don’t know what came over me, it was a sperm of the moment thing”

    VJ Day was a celebration…the sailor kissed the girl out of joy and not for any other reason. Cranky is just celebrating!

    This comic should come with a trigger warning. Normal people should just bring popcorn.

    The woman who was kissed unwillingly died at 92 and is buried with her husband at Arlington National Cemetery. The sailor died at 95 and was never charged.

    Please let the woman have a mace. Not “a can of mace,” a mace—the big iron club used by medieval knights.

    I get what this event is referencing. I realize they’re just cartoons and not real people. It’s still a creepy thing to depict, without at least showing the character being smacked or pepper sprayed.
