[ Cleaning Up]

Title Text: It was originally going to be a pun, ''Four Finger Viscount,'' but then the arm thing happened

Poor, poor Poncho.

Also, "Four Finger Discount" Jack looks dashing in those glasses. *giggles*

Uh-oh, Jack's getting in more trouble... :twisted:

We should have an animal named "Macklemore" come and buy a ton of his marked stuff.

I do like the glasses on Jack :P Where did he steal this stuff from anyway? Most of it looks like stuff from the garbage.

I was wondering if the "Four Finger Discount" had to do with past actions and not just the fact he only has four fingers now. And roping your brother into helping, I know EXACTLY how that feels.

junk yards have guard dogs for a reason. It's still stealing if you take it from the dump.

I'm starting to like Jack more, but it's too bad Poncho has to help clean up Jack's mess.
Of Course, Poncho could be cleaning up because he helps Jack with his "business" dealings.
Guess we'll find out about that soon enough?

The "arm thing" should remain a noodle incident, I think. ;3

Also, I just noticed... Jack looks older than Miles when he's wearing the glasses. Probably has to do with the square frames, I dunno...

I like Miles without the glasses, but I also acknowledge that they make him look older and more sophisticated.

Dang he's a quick snatcher. I always thought the 'discount' was him missing an arm, not that he was a klepto. X3

Of course, but I went towards the more literal approach to interpreting his name over the fact that an 'x-fingered discount' is when you steal something.

yeah, I also assumed it was purely a pun about his missing appendage as opposed to having this double meaning.

Rick, this is the second time you've made a visual joke that sails clear over my head.

Thank you.

Jack certainly has some fast reflexes. Curious as to how long it took him to "collect" all those things.

Huh. And Poncho told Sasha the "Sick abs come with the catch-and-kill lifestyle."
Now we know they really comes from helping poor, handicapped "Four Finger Discount" Jack haul his misgotten... haul.

I wonder what would happen if Jack met Sidney from Widdershins.

Poncho doesn't look happy about Jack's wacky schemes.

At first I only noticed that Miles' glasses were missing, it took a while to realize that Jack doesn't wear them usually.

So it seems Jack has agility instead of strength to compensate. Then again, in the zoo arc, it took five men to hold him down.

Not to brag but I noticed right away :lol: . I remember giggling when I saw the last frame.

You're a mad genius Rick you know that, right? I too thought that the little switcheroo with the glasses was pretty clever. It was easily one of the best visual gags that Rick has ever done!

On a another note, who thinks Poncho will have a thing or two to tell his brother after Miles is done scolding Jack?
