Oh man, the air quote thing is brilliant, Rick. I love it. I never would've picked up on it.

Math?! Noooooo...
By the way, Mr. squirrel dissipation, sir. The litigation threatening link on the main page leads me to a dead end. Either that or Rick is pulling a prank on me, probably as revenge for.. you know... and also for... yeah, you know that too.....

One wonders if he has pants on or if Peanut gave him a top-only makeover like he did with Miles :lol:

I think Rick is just making Mr. London's complete incompetence a running gag. He was there to make sure Jack wasn't ripped off but failed to notice Jack had 10x more money than he thought he had. One wonders how the weasels ferrets get away with everything they do with such a terrible lawyer. Maybe Mr. London is only assigned to Messrs. The Wolves.

I do wonder if Rick showing Mr. London's face this time around is specifically because of all the people who said he never shows faces. ;)

I want a four-fingered motorbiker mitten just like the one Jack is using. I could only use it if I lost a finger but, well, at least I would get to use the mitten. :D

Maybe that is his way of dressing up to go to the bank? Since y'know normally Jack's not wearing anything at all.

Jeez, did he have some gold stored under all that junk!? How the heck did he accumulate $7000?! ...He must have forgotten to place decimal points on his price tags.

Relevant? EDIT: There's a meme that I could put up here... but it's definitely not from a family-friendly source. So I won't. I'll just state what it says: "NO ONE SAID THERE'D BE MATH!

Also, yea... Gotta agree with D-Rock. That vest (no pun intended. Purely coincidental) ROCKS!

Ahem, now... WHERE'S PEANUT'S MESSENGER BAG!? *brick'd

You'd think with seven thousand dollars, Jack would at least try to afford a better lawyer.

...But then again, the lawyer is there because Jack obviously can't count cash anyway! :lol:

Also, revenge... I want Pancho to get revenge!... :twisted:

He could have hired Lionel Hutz, that guy actually WON a case once!

You know, I heard Fidel Castro is in agreement with many of Pancho Villa's views. Maybe if you gave away national U.S. state secrets to Cuba....

That clothing was quite nice. It fit the wolf really good. I wonder if that was awhim of his or if wolves (or any big animal) have to wear clothes when they go to courts or related buildings.

I was wondering where this arc would come to an end, it's actually a shame that it's not longer. Of all the side character arcs this top's my list next to Kevin's physical.

Just one thing, could someone explain the alt text to me

Post subject:  Re: 2013/04/12 - Numbers Learning

I feel kinda sad that this ending to this arc looks so... plot-wise rushed. I mean, This story was supposed to end only after we knew ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING about Jack's personal life.
Kitch Wrote:

I've been thinking that since I saw the sketch on Rick's Twitty account.
Funny fact: The one armed weapons vendor from The Simpsons was originally meant to give a different reason to how he lost his arm each time he was asked, but so far, he's only said the following to Bart: "Well, kid, let's just say that, when your teacher tells you not to stick your arms out of the bus' windows, you better listen to her."
Bart: (Gulp) "Yes, sir."

I'm guessing by "unclosed air quote, Rick meant the fact that he didn't write in the second set of quotation marks to show the end of the quotation. "education! should have been "education!"

Lastly, now we can have fun guessing where Jack put his wallet, if he used one. My guess is inside the pinned-up sleeve.

It's meaning when you do quote marks with your fingers and stuff. Since Jack only has one arm, there's only one quotation mark.
