This one's based on a true story. My father (the real R.O.) actually made this comment once.
This gag was originally used in a project I was working on that never materialized, which was a shame because I thought it was a good concept. Never one to let a good gag fall by the wayside, I recycled the gag into a Life In The Faster Lane strip. Recyclo-Bob strikes again. :)
