  1. For Hunt’s #3, he’s treating his commuter stop like it’s something really special, as you would on a sightseeing trip!

  2. In response to Bob McGowan’s last sentence, I didn’t get it either. Maybe you just had to be there.

  3. Well, with this group I’d have to say the top cartoon (Vahan) is the funniest, then #4 by Vahan followed by the bottom two, numbers 6 & 7. I bet what happened in the Farris cartoon really has happened. In the Bram cartoon, I can only hope he missed the 7:10 p.m. (not a.m.) and another’s on its way. As for #3 by Hunt, I… don’t get that one.
