This is my first punchline that relies on you having read last week’s strip. I don’t want to keep doing this but it’s always fun to try something new.

You know a bad guy is bad when he wears ONE black glove! Apparently, the reason good cowboys wore white and bad cowboys wore black is because early TVs weren’t very good. In black and white, grainy pictures, it’s much easier to tell people apart when they are yin ang yang. Other than a single leather glove, how else can you tell someone’s a bad guy in a movie?

    In animated movies, villains are colored with a lot of red and black, and they’re more angular that the heroes

    I thought the skeleton’s sword+shield in panel one was a giant eggbeater. And then I thought you’d sneakily stolen my idea for the whirwolf!

    lol popcarrots.. I find it funny that our various puffed corn snacks are basically an artificial attempt to replicate popcorn.
    Ummm villains can be spotted by their oversized moustaches and eyebrows.. especially handlebar moustaches and ESPECIALLY handlebar eyebrows.

    Christi can talk about things while thinking about something else? either that or she starts thinking about chocolate and bicycles when she hears the word “thinking”

    Emma – Like playing cards!

    Ranjit – I can’t believe as a kid I never realized Airwolf was a pun on werewolf. I just thought it was two words put together like Green Hornet or Black Lightning.

    ColdFusion – Handlebar eyebrows eh? Sound like someone’s been peeking ahead at the next story line with gnomes in it! 🙂

    Ribuprissin – She’s a cartoon character so things are frozen in time differently.

    I thought waering one black glove was a sign that you’d lost the other one, not a sign that you were the bad guy.

    Stroking a fluffy white cat makes you a archetypical Bond villain. Or, ten times worse… a (gasp) CAT PERSON!
    Who has pictures of his/her cats in his/her wallet and can’t wait to show you. Who has exhibition trophies all over their home, along with a suspicious smell. Who… nevermind. (Shudder!)

    Generally, the guy who either has a creepy laugh, or, more menacingly, never laughs about anything.
