A Hacksaw to the Head of a Stupid Child Can Only Help!

We've been having some techno issues, so let's make up for it with a super-sized post, courtesy of All-Flash Quarterly #22!

That can't be right, but for the life of me I can't figure out why it isn't.

There was a story in there that was re-drawn in the 1970's.  I remember that story by heart, so it was kind of fun to see the original artwork.  But here's what I don't understand:

Okay, it isn't that Joan is the least attractive woman since Olive Oyl.  It's something else.  Read on:

Okay, if you're just going to stick it in an envelope and mail it, why go through all the hoo-hah?  I mean, I would imagine it takes a lot more attention-grabbing activity to glue a playing card together and stick that in the mail than it would to just shove a piece of paper in there.  It's not Ace suspected Deuces at that time and was watching him 24/7.  Heck, Deuces could have just picked up the phone rather than risk getting caught in this elaborate scheme (or run the risk that no one would have figured out to steam the card open).

  Don't overthink your capers, people.  Learn from this.

Here's a couple of things from All-Flash Quarterly #24:

Man boys are ordering an extra copy of the Daisy handbook for their girlfriends?  I'm sorry, but I need to see some proof of that.

And now, a CMNS Moment of Comic Book Greatness (tm!):

That was a CMNS Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)

See you tomorrow!

I don't think I want to know what is going on in that last panel. The more I see of Captain Tootsie, the more disturbed I get.

At least the kid wasn't doing it to himself.

Wait, does that make it better or worse?

Mutt's error was in subtracting 16 hours from every day in the year, including the days Jeff had off. Subtract weekends and two weeks vacation and there are 247 days left. Subtract 16 hours from each day, and you still have 82 days in which Jeff was working, or almost 12 weeks. He didn't say just how many holidays Jeff had off, so I can't calculate that.

I have little doubt that Aaron's answer is correct and makes perfect sense.... to someone much smarter than I :-)

funny typo:

"Man boys are ordering an extra copy"

I had the same thought Vince. I just wasn't gonna say it.
