H11- Do Not Hurt Them
Now thatís a good weekend cliffhanger. Nothing like being booted from the very job you were created to fulfill. Probably hurts your self-esteem too.
Originally Murdoch was using a giant mace when I first drew this, but I went back and changed it to a hammer. A mace just seemedÖ cruel. Donít get me wrong; whacking somebody with a hammer is cruel too, but itís a part of our societal comedic pool. Everything from Whac-A-Mole to Donkey Kong to the Sledge-O-Matic has taught us that hammers equal comedy. Okay maybe not the Sledge-O-Matic. That never really was funny.
