    Well, she’s certainly blunt.

    I don’t know why, but for some reason I want to associate that word with a detective. After googling it it does mean detective. Strange I wonder where I picked that up?

    Ha, ha. Yes I did just google the word dick. Make jokes now. But in my defense, I googled the phrase dick defenition, although, I don’t know if that makes it better or worse.

    Yah, dick in this context means private detective, usually as “private dick”. You can see why the usage fell out of favor 🙂

    Plus it’s a lot funnier if you don’t know that.

    The original meaning was the first to come to mind, for me. Now I feel old.

    I understand the intended meaning, but I love the double meaning in a modern context.

    THANK YOU Cavalier! That’s the whole point of these random panels, they should just hit you cold right upside the head for a second, so that even after you realize “Oh, wait, they mean THAT”, it’s still funny. But then, I’m fairly immature, so there you have it.
