    Rat, he looks like the kind of guy who will pummel you senseless, if you had any to begin with that is. Do stand still so he can make it hurt three times as much and possibly, though highly unlikely, put some sense into you.

    Good thing Mr. Cool didn’t say “put a sock in it”.

    Strangely enough, there’s an option on the menu line below this strip that says “pin it”. I think I’ll pass.

    Rat shouldn’t be eavesdropping.

    Sorry, but I don’t have enough bandwidth to work on this project. I do have some spare time if that would work instead. :)

    More than once I’ve wished I was a cartoon so I could stick a pin in someone and get no lasting effects for my effort.

    I think the ghost of Charlie Sheen has inhabited Rat. What? Sheen’s not dead? Could have fooled me!

    The “pin” in “put a pin in it” refers to the safety pin of a grenade. ( I read it on the Internet, so it must be true!). If the suit uses the phrase again, Rat can escalate his response. I’m sure Guard Duck could supply a grenade.

    YouTube the scene from the Reno 911 Miami movie – Dwayne Johnson and the grenade. It’s hilarious.

    I’ve never heard “put a pin it it” either but, to paraphrase Groucho, I’d never work for a business that would hire me.

    From Urban Dictionary (I had to look it up, never heard it before):

    Put a pin in thatA douchey/ middle management way to say “let’s come back to that later,” or, “hold that thought.” Increasingly popular in business speak.

    Possibly originally from WWII, referring to putting a pin back in a hand grenade so it won’t go off.

    Once, I was reading about cases in he pre-Depression 1900s when women used hat pins (large pins like the one Rat has designed to hold decoration on the hat — the more decoration, the bigger the pin) as (short) swords or (long) knives in self defense. There were even guide booka on how to defend yourself using a hat pin, assuming the article was trustworthy and I’m remembering correcty. It’s been a long time since I read it.
