A shout-out to Greg "Beefheart" Peters and his excellent "Suspect Device" Louisiana-politics cartoon and blog* . I kinda... borrowed... that "Over here, Slappy!" from the 9-25-2002 comic. It's a line that been stuck in my head for a while, and the best way to get rid of that sort of thing is to use it somewhere.
*Update: FUCK. I try to check and update old links and this is what I find. SHIT.
