woohooligan NEW! Check out our best laughs from 2016!
Y'know I've liked a lot of the places I've lived. Portland Oregon was awesome, and Austin Texas was pretty sweet, too... but the more I learn about Arlington Texas, the more I wish we lived in another suburb.

911 is for emergencies... except in Arlington. In fact most cities fine you pretty heftily for calling 911 without an actual emergency. That's because they don't want you clogging up their emergency services line and keeping others from getting needed help when they're bleeding out on the floor, because someone walked on your grass or keyed your car. Annoying? Sure. But not life-threatening, so it has no place on the 911 emergency services... except in Arlington.

A couple weeks ago someone vandalized our mailbox. We think we know who and honestly it's not such a big deal, but we submitted a police report to be thorough. When I heard the police clerk tell me to call 911, I thought I was being rickrolled. LOL Apparently that's how they roll here in Arlington: all non-emergency police needs are encouraged to call 911. So don't expect a quick response when you need 'em, 'cause they're busy taking mailbox vandalism reports!

It occurred to me this might be a decent subject for a comic... but I didn't want it to be too ranty, so that's why I decided to present it as something that would happen in Mario World. ;P

Whew! Lotta work went into this one. :D Learned a bit more about Manga Studio. I still don't like it overall, but that's neither here nor there. Hopefully all that effort paid off and you guys will get a good laugh. :D

CLAIMER: I can do this legally, thanks to "fair use". I didn't use any of Nintendo's trademarks or copyrighted art (you might notice the missing M and L on Mario and Luigi's hats), so this parody falls in the category of free speech protected by the US Constitution's 1st amendment.

You are an important part of Laughter for a Better World!

Unka John I've only been to Arlington twice but I prefer the "Gran Torino" method of getting kids off my lawn.

I prefer the unchained timberwolf method myself.
It's in cases like that is when I unleash the shaven squirrels with rabies.
