  1. 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.

  4. 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.

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

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

  7. 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.
