"Because he still has his powers. His sorcerous powers. His dangerous sorcerous powers. Did you not see him use his powers? Were you in the same magical, dream-like negaverse that we were? Ugh, sometimes, I swear..."
I was going to make a comment on tipping and why you should do it. Most waitpeople make under minimum wage, make up for wages in tips, work really hard, blah blah blah. Instead, I'm going to comment on the hilarity that is Jeffy in the booster seat while PJ is sandwiched between his parents. Look how happy PJ is! And Jeffy even spilled his water!
So we're all fine with a 70-whatever-year-old man wandering around with sloppy joe on his shirt and face? Today's strip should've had Ed buy some cotton candy and in the last panel have things stick to him. Just complete the whole Ed-is-a-toddler look.
Few of you probably remember the ABC series Dinosaurs. It lasted from 1991 until 1994 and was created by Michael Jacobs (Boy Meets World/Girl Meets World) and was the last thing Jim Henson had a hand in before his death. Anyway, the series ended with all the dinosaurs going extinct because they had accidentally caused a bug to go extinct, so they had to use weed killer to keep invasive plants from spreading which caused all plants to die so they threw bombs into the volcanoes to create clouds so it could rain but instead caused ash to cover the planet blocking out the sun. I'm assuming the same thing happened here, Mason just changed it from "bomb" to "rain dance".
