You also have to party for the right to fight.

Assuming that the suspect does fight for the right to party, he also presumably gains the right to cry, if he wants to.

I was at the police station the other day while some dude was being read his rights, when he asked what he was being arrested for, the cop said, "Stupidity." I don't think that's an actual crime, though.

Not to nitpick, but...

The first verse is, "You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar..."

The second is "I was working..."

Assuming we're talking about the same song here.

Yeah, I noticed this morning that I screwed up the lyric. Don't think it is not killing me that I can't fix it until Monday.

I have to say, these last two cartoons, are just as just as good or better than any of your "earlier stuff." hilarious.

Hi I was looking for other papercast site and I found yours. Nice drawing and handwriting (mine suck ^^).

Considering that more than a few people consider my handwriting fairly illegible, I appreciate the compliment.

Incidentally, astute readers will note that the misremembered lyrics in this cartoon were corrected a day early. This is because loyal reader Debby fired up Photoshop and plugged in a "you" from elsewhere in the comic and four-tenths of the word "everywhere" from an earlier strip. Thanks, Debby!
