Yes, it was a terrible pun but at least I didn’t have him pull out a guitar pick.

Watching crime shows as a kid, like Magnum P.I., I was fascinated by lock picking. Now I’m much more interested in characters who don’t need to pick locks, they can find other ways in. Like through the window, or getting themselves invited inside. I think that’s why Christi doesn’t usually travel with a rogueish companion who can forge documents, disarm traps, pick pockets or fly her off the planet in the Millenium Falcon. Wait, did I write pick pockets? I sense and even worse follow up cartoon coming on…

5 Awesomes Comments!

    Oh, that scoundrel’s SO good at picking.
    I think he’s missed his calling, don’t you?

    Picking locks, picking pockets … He should be
    Christi’s lifestyle consultant or personal shopper.

    Good call Jon! That would make him as frustrating to Princess Christi as the flag designers are to her dad.

    Does he pick noses, too?

    (You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you shouldn’t pick your friends’ noses.)

    Maybe he can pick a fight, or a cherry.

    Or maybe he can pocket picks!

  5. Steve

    The more effective way to use his skill would have been to smash through the locks with a digging implement.
