    Good morning™, everyone!


    “Eh? He didn’t have no gun.”

    “But the Jack says he killed her.”

    “I don’t know. But she beat him up good. I found him on the floor.”

    This is when they should clear out but Sam and the others are already on the way.

    Still a bit of a pity Joe couldn’t stick around for the wrap-up, though his run ‘did’ go out with a literal “Bang.” ✨

    What kind of gang is run by people who are always masked, and don’t know their respective faces, making it so easy to infiltrate?

    Good morning™, Keystone criminals !

    Right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. With this level of competence, the deck is about to fold.

    BTW – it’s interesting to see Mumbles play a big role in this tale.

    Ace is slowly figuring out that letting everyone conceal their identities in your HQ is a bad idea.

    Do those eyes in Panel 1 look feminine to you? Or am I imagining it?

    He thinks Briar Rose might have persuaded Jack to let her beat him up? That’s some late-night stuff!

    Ace should have acted on his suspicions, instead of puzzling out the story’s inconsistencies

    SO, what would Doubleup do upon discovering who’s in the Jack suit, if Tracy is his idol?

    As inept as the police are being portrayed in this arc, unable to find anything on their own and desperate for coincidence to dump a clue on their laps, at least the thugs are shown as even dumber. Dump and Dumber… might make a good movie title.

    1-RATFACE: So, where’s your cigar?

    MUMBLES: Lkat me. Im 2yung 2smk.

    2-RATFACE: Yeah. You do look like you belong in an Archie strip today.

    MUMBLES: Yeh, dooin Vronica and Btty inna 3way!

    3-RATFACE: SHADDAP! I won’t have you talking that way about them chaste girls!

    MUMBLES: Archee chsed em. Hees gotda blubalz 2 proov it.

    RATFACE: True, they’re like a golf partner who always claims he doesn’t need to putt when he’s within 10 feet of the hole – Veronica and Betty never PUTT OUT! GET IT?!?!

    I have suddenly realized that Mumbles is behind all those “If you can read this..” memes on Facebook!

    So how does the Ace of Spades smoke cigars through a body stocking?

    I suppose Ace of Spades was asking Mumbles a rhetorical question. If he (Mumbles) had been given the assignment, they would not be having this conversation.

    Next thing Ace will probably say is Briar Rose seduced Jack. When she was at their headquarters he could have snuffed her out there. Seems to me Ace is looking for a scapegoat. Oh yeah….he has to answer to the Apparatus. They aren’t kind towards sloppy work.

    Where is the person on this site who can interpret Mumbleleeze? Dang now I wish I had been in group in my high school who got the chance to take French. Gee whiz, this guy must have a speech impediment. I guess his date understood him.

    I strained to read Mumbles remarks in the first panel….I think its “didn’t he have no gun”? I am not trying with the second and third panels.

    Mumbles doesn’t seem to like smoke blown in his face in panel 3.

    I must be getting soft hearted.I’m hoping Doubleup decides to take"paid vacation" before the raid starts.

    2.)How much “fireworks” will the censors allow when the raid starts?It’ll have to go some to top the 2015 Bribery raid.

    3.)If the Apparatus self-destructs,the winner will be Bribery;their chief independent rival.

    4.)When “The New Ace” is unmasked,it’ll be Ben Welden.

    5.)As for “Apparatus”—I think the history of Leaders Tracy has taken down goes as

    1.)Big Boy

    2.)Mr.Crime(George Alphanone)

    3.)Willie The Fifth

    4.)Unnamed “Board Of Directors” in 1970

    5.)The Button in 1973—he was introduced as New Head of The Apparatus.

    I’m not counting Odds Zonn—-he was a flop villain who wasn’t around long enough to boil water.

    Mumbles and the not-as-bright-as-he-pretends-to-be Ace of Spades are just now catching up to the real ace commentators on this board. “Jack” Tracy, however, needs his team to show up ASAP, because Ace of Spades is getting close to realizing that this “Jack” isn’t kosher from the Marmel’s Deli!

    Regarding “Tracy” – “What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” I don’t know if that applies to clouds of cigar smoke.
