Kind Of Okay Comics #017
Ran into Rex Tarkleton and he gave me a new strip. He was arguing with the cantaloupes in the produce section of my local grocery store over some card game the piece of fruit lost in 1974, balking on his debt to Mr. Tarkleton, the aggravated winner of said game. Things got heated and old ladies got frightened. The cops even showed up. However, good ol' Rex, that drunken diplomat, diffused the situation. Now before you go thinking he's lost his mind, I was surprised to see that he scored at least $50 off the offensive melon before being escorted on his way. Rex was right when he was screaming, "Never play poker with a dirty, cheatin' cantaloupe!" in a pair of handcuffs. I suppose he's right. Thanks again, Rex!
