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?

Sorry if this sounds awkward but what's a narc. I hear it a lot these days

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.

Who said i forgot, I say, i say WHO?

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.

Cast of the Astec gold doesn't count, Rick. =)

However, this random customer looks much better than the previous humans you've drawn. The expressions on him are much more in-line with the average pet you draw.

That, and his nose.
