    Ok, seriously, when would this ever have been appropriate?

    Isn’t this kid a young ‘un himself?

    Oh dear fluffy lord, how much more innuendo can you put in a comic? I mean, after the first time reading this, my head flooded with jokes almost as inappropriate as this panel. Where does the innuendo end? I have a feeling that this comic has more double entendres than an hour of late night talk shows.

    Okay, that’s it. I’m convinced. They knew exactly what this was going to sound like and they did it on purpose. I don’t care when it was published. They knew.

    Is that Patsy himself, getting yanked off his horse with a rope and thinking third-personally about how he’ll react to the face of Midas Morgan? And if it is, then why isn’t he, oh I don’t know, calling out instead of thinking quietly to himself about how bad this might be?

    Maybe the thought balloon is supposed to belong to whomever is dragging Patsy away, Gay Desperado.(Yeah, I know. The end of the sentence doesn’t make sense, but I wanted to have Gay Desperado and dragging in the same sentence.
