they used the special gun, Nelson, right at Opal’s ears
It was point blank range.
Just within earshot.
Earl gets it !

Ha! Talk about holes in the head…..
Hold my Root Beer ;)
I think I still have one around here somewhere.
The mother lobe of all guns?
I can just hear the Aliens now, “ These beings hang and pierce bits of plastic and metal on all parts of their bodies…and don’t get me started about what they do to their genitalia !
My friend and I went to my doctor to get our ears pierced. As he stood poised with his little piercer (looked more like a hole punch than a gun) he said “are you sure you want to mutilate yourselves like this?” Wow! Of course we did!
Dad’s 93 now, but as a kid he had one ear pierced, at least temporarily. They lived at a place that raised ocelots.
My grandmother believed there was a law in the US that said all women had to get their ears pierced. She was shocked when we explained to her that there was no such thing.
According to the doctor and Forensic Files, there would be little to no powder residue.
I figure doing anything to myself that would be considered assault if done by someone else is not something I should do.
I worked for a jewelry store and we did it with a metal punch gun…was so much easier than the needle. Though I was lucky as my neighbor was a nurse and she numbed my ear with a spray and use a needle to do mine and immediately put the 14 caret round earrings in my ears. Then had to turn them a lot and clean with alcohol.
Every Sunday my cheapo paper cuts the title and second panels, so I didn’t see the hilarious Earl comment until I came to GoComics to read the comments. Does anyone else’s Sunday paper do that? Thank you, Minneapolis Star Tribune – not!
Hmmm, the local fishwrapper skipped the panel with grampa’s reply!
