Caption Contest 49: Keep 'em punchy

Some things just go naturally together, like peanut butter and jelly, Oreos and milk, Simon and Garfunkle and -- of course -- Tuesdays and Caption Contests. That's right, it's time once again to see if you can come up with the best replacement dialog for this comic book panel, and thereby win your very own custom black and white illustration of whatever you like (within reason) from professional artist Jeff Hebert:

contest49

The rules are simple: leave your entry in the comments to this post; no more than three entries per person; and keep it relatively clean.

Good luck, everyone! Oh, and special thanks go to Cory for suggesting this panel be used for a caption contest, and to HalLoweEn JacK for promising to giggle if I used it. That's motivation we can believe in, my friends!
