Hi and Lois watch

[Hi and Lois, October 11, 2011.]

O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark.

There are many ways to draw a plausible refrigerator, but they’re all missing from the above panel. Perhaps the beer is in a cooler in the basement?

The old can-I-borrow-a-cup-of-sugar routine isn’t very plausible either.

Is it a walk-in-freezer/cooler? Like they have at restaurants?

Maybe it's a portal to another universe...

I think that's actually a come-on, too, which makes it even more disturbing.

Morgues have walk-in freezers too. Maybe this is where they kept discarded characters.

Matthew, I saw your comment only after posting mine. It is disturbing, esp. if you know Bessie Smith’s “Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl.”
