    What a jerk. I used to have a neighbor who once banged on our door clutching a steel rod and sobbing because she was convinced our other neighbors were cooking crack in their kitchen and funneling it into her water supply to kill her. I’m not sure which neighbor is worse.

    Enjoyed the comic, nice stuff. I actually like drunk people. It brings out the “cool mom” in me. As long as their not violent drunks. But hey at 3am on halloween, someone with less restraint would have been swinging that hammer.
