Is this a vague sex joke? First Horace is horny and the second panel he’s not.
Does he live in the kind of neighborhood where people frequently walk through with squeeze-bulb horns on their feet, or do they just know Horace?
Toot toot tooting all the way home…
If the sign is saying ‘no noise’, it should have been more specific. There is always a ‘Horace’ around.
I read Douglas Adam’s Last Chance to See, and his descriptions of traffic in China. He said they use their horn all the time. I bought the CD-ROM version of the book which has more pictures, and in it you can see this prohibition symbol. Not that it does any good.
WOW… That was one long-lasting New Year’s Eve Party, Horace….!
I saw “no trumpet” signs in Peru and had similarly specific thoughts.
That rattle around his snout is genius. He can make it sound by moving his head. And it same time locks that horn into his mouth…
Some people hate it when you blow your own horn.
