    I love that cascading mullet on the prosecuting lawyer in the Paris Hilton illustration! Also, everyone knows that a sugary chewing gum replaces any need for dentistry… doesn’t it? Thanks for sharing these, Mark.

      Ha! Thanks, Mike. Yes, the cascading mullet– I must get one of those for that truly avant-garde artist look… : P

      And yes, the I-chew-gum-so-I-dun-need-no-steenking-dentist case was a true howler! Thanks as always for your kind support! : )
