Prologue: Page 27Wow, it would have been really helpful if that security guard had showed up about two pages ago! But I guess she wasn’t looking. Have you ever felt this way? As soon as you peer too close to the artwork, the guards at a museum seem to materialize out of nowhere and chastise you! I mean, Louis was touching the glass here, and he did definitely mess things up…but she didn’t seem to be anywhere in sight when everything was glowing and being all magical. Or, you know, the Disc kind of going a bit blank.
Who knows! I feel like she’s still pretty good at her job. In my mind, she was off helping Mrs. Bridgman corral the rowdy kids in Louis’s class (who are definitely capable of much more severe infractions than simply touching the glass case of an item), so I think that was a valid reason to be occupied.
I believe it was on the commentary to the Clerks: The Animated Series DVD where they went to a lengthy discussion of the concept of repetition in comedy, which comes to mind on the idea of long-running gags.
Plate of shrimp.
