Blatantly calling it a request list is kind of stupid on his part :P

It's a new business strategy. :mrgreen:

Just wondering... ...how did he get TVs (and probably the washing machine/dryer) in the first place? CRTs are pretty heavy, and I don't think he has any trolleys or accomplices. :shock:

Wolves seem pretty strong and "Four Finger Discount" Jack has Poncho and probably some other family to call in for assistance.

Jack is certainly a shrewd businesswolf. I wonder How he acquired all those TV's? Surely he didn't amass such a horde by himself?

Maybe he can only do things like hang Christmas garland and move washing machines when he's off-panel.

Actually, at least two of the thieves from the aztec treasure arc also had their full faces revealed, but yeah! A human who's full face and body (except for the feet, but no-one cares about feet) are revealed from the start? Maybe Housepets! 3.0 ain't so bad after all.

Well, I wasn't sure if it was a slang, noun, adjective, an abreviation, etc. since I have never seen this word before. Depending of the word, it could have many different meanings in a certain sentence and I would like to know what it meant in the context.
Kudos for the politeness.

It almost always refers to a narcotics officer, but you do occasionally see it used to refer to other "vice squad" types, undercover policemen, etc... that's kind of unusual, though.

NOT THAT A ONE-ARMED HUMANOID WOLF RUNNING A JUNK SHOP IN HIS GARAGE IS UNUSUAL. Ahem.

Now that I think of it, he could be using it to refer to a person who is the habit of "narcing", or reporting suspicious activity among acquaintances to the authorities, rather than an undercover officer.

This particular "random person" was rather well put together! In fact I would be so bold to say that this character is probably one of the best drawings of a human by Rick so far in this comic.

I believe it's short for "narcotics officer," coming from undercover officers attempting to "buy" drugs so they can arrest the people trying to sell them. EDIT: Yep, Argent beat me to it.
