Scary Gary (10/23/08)

Here’s a rather gruseome punchline made palatable by a wholesome image and a cute sound effect in the final panel. Sure, the neighborhood busybody may have been decapitated on the lawn by a tiny demon, but all that’s shown is a man (actually a vampire) in a sweater reading a book along with the innocent-sounding “thwok” emanating from the front yard. The whole thing was incongruous enough to get a laugh out of me.
