    The apartment is more likely to be under the El.

    The Ravenswood el ran just outside the back door of one of my former homes. One came to only notice the trains when they weren’t running.

    I can’t help wondering how they translate all these unbearable puns into Spanish for that version of “Pearls.” The Spanish one is never today’s strip in English.

    Hey people, Stephan bought back the song to our attention and now we all have an earwig of a wonderful song for some time in our life. Or beat him on the head if you wish as it was a bad attempt at a pun – not one of his better one.

    Pastis, you really thought you could hide from me, but it is I, Tatman your oldest enemy who has returned from the grave to punish your worst sins. One such is the one you have made on this date, the 26th of July, where I have caught you re-using a pun. You really thought you could get away with it you devilish bastard. You have a month to fix this behavior of bad puns and coping and pasting panels or else I Tatman, will deliver unto you ultimate punishment.
