If Jeff is not careful, the punchline is likely to be “…and that’s when the fight started….”
Poor Mari is back home helping her Dad mend fences. The next time she gets to Gunpowder she will have no clue as to what the uproar is about.
Note to Jeff: The purpose of a chaperone is to prevent trouble, not incite a riot.
“Chaperone” is a typo with some missing followup text, I think. It would be referring to an opening line that should be, “Chapter One” followed by “:It was a dark and stormy fight”…
One day the real Mari is going to be in town. One of those two will mouth off something inappropriate and heads will roll. Especially if Daddy hears the comment!
He beat me by a miniute, Stupid tiny keypad…
A beer sounds great right now. Would somebody hand me one of those forms?
Not that I’m not enjoying the view or anything, but how does a Texas rancher not hav a foot of twine in his car?
18 for beer? Thought feds made everything 21 back in mid 80s.
True; they forced it through the withholding of Federal Highway funds. Wyoming was the last state to fold.
I think that was an intentional set-up. The bartender did give her the beers illegally. Let’s see what transpires next.
I’m thinking they are feds of some flavor looking to do some entrapment.
Also what sort of payday they expecting? If it’s a free looks ie, then maybe. But if they expect to grab her for business… grab the popcorn.
Grabbing might be interesting. Sort of likr grabbing onto a passing T-72B. Going to be memorable.
Two releases this weekend, so totally appropriate ; )
That wide-screen third-layer panel is the killer of the month (maybe year or decade). If it had a title, it would be “The eyes have it” — the two guys in identical poses from the previous panel except for their eyes turned left as though the Arnie version had just dismantled their friends in the bar and they were frozen in time (sorta like how Jeff is in the process of dismantling them at the moment in a different fashion, I expect).
BUT. That’s just the obvious stuff. That third pair of eyes, I’m not even sure if I’m seeing correctly or just imagining it, but I could swear that Chris has somehow captured just the slightest trace of Jeff’s Arnie-eyes in that stare, along with glimmer of a T-eye sparkle in the pupils, especially “her” left pupil (I guess to match the glimmer in another left pupil lower down). Am I just seeing that trace of similarity to Arnie-Jeff’s eyes in my head or is it there? And if so, how do you DO that, Chris? (and don’t stop of course.)
Methinks there may be more than chairs broken over heads in a few minutes, or maybe seconds…
Shoot! — there is no edit function in the comments section now (there used to be, or am I misremembering)? I meant to add a qualifier in the near-the-end bit above of “…the glimmer in another left pupil lower down” to read, “…the glimmer in another left pupil — the viewer’s left, that is — lower down.”
See, I have this strange sorta-dyslexic tendency that I’ve noticed for as long as I can remember where I look at a picture and “see” directions (left and right) in my head as though I were a person in the pic looking out at the viewer. So in comments elsewhere over the years I have, a thousand times, had to go back and edit a comment that referred to, say, something “in the upper right corner” of a picture because it was actually in the upper left corner from the viewer’s point of view, but my brain was “seeing” it from “inside the picture looking out” in my head.
I think it must by my inner-mathematician-child that automatically tries to see things from all sides to get a good 3-D impression of whatever. Comes in handy for determining certain, um, operational parameters, you might say, in other situations.
(And I said “sorta” in this comment above, because it’s only sometimes — eg, I got the direction correct on the first eye mention, but not the second lower-down eye, or rather I got the intentional switcheroo, but then I mussed up the qualifier-aside — but of course that might have been caused by a different kind of distraction and disorientation…)
Very observant. They also appear to have the look of men who just felt someone walk across their graves.
Jeff (Mari) is giving off a “Second Hand Lions” vibe, as if he (she) is about to place Jack and Kiko on top of the bar with a stern “wait here” and then completely renovate the bar using the two hapless lugs drinking beer as demolition tools.
Should be interesting seeing how Sam’s opponent uses this in their reee-match 😉
Then again, that would be body shaming and a good little woketard only does that to their opposition.
So I’m guessing Jack knows the boys at the bar, based on their shared affinity for vintage Caddy’s (what is that back there, a ’59? King of the Fins!)
Shared affinity too, for a shapely twin-like creature that Jack knows is going to get them into a world of hurt; he and I both like a good barroom brawl, but this one with that gorgeous version of Jeff involved, is gonna be a doozy…
What’s Charlie Berens doing down in Texas? Not that he isn’t welcome…
No, that’s J. Dahmer with his glasses off.
Girls should be careful when he says they look good enough to eat…
He should take a bite of “Mari” first.
I need a cup of coffee, and are those locals or nasty feddie imports?
Long story, but worth it if you believe the methods and madness of Trump and admire the tenacity and purity of DeSantis. This girl is going to be a factor.
I suspect the two sitting at the bar may be undercover Feds or paid informants, and seeing an “underage Mari” they’re all excited at what they think is an opportunity to arrest and hold her for leverage against her parents.
That, or Jeff is being very proactive in his task as bodyguard and in his guise as “Mari” is acting as a “Q Ship” to temp two mouth breathers into doing something inappropriate so he can fold, spindle, and mutilate them, thus creating a reputation for the flesh and blood Mari which will have many steering very clear of her for the foreseeable future.
Possibly as suggested by Zed. If the “boys” are afraid to go near her he doesn’t need to dig any deep holes on the farm.
Mari herself may not appreciate this…
Age of consent in Texas is 17…lower in some others.
Oddly enough, it’s mostly the dem states that have it at 18, and since a great many adult movies are shot in commiefornia, that’s the disclaimer they have to use for ‘acting’ in them.
