This is the sweetest strip ever. Just the thought of the Bum Boat in panel 1 makes Jeff Corey's head swell up like a marshmallow in a microwave.
Drew feels bad about the whole thing of course. Not really bad, but certainly bad enough to have learned his lesson Once and For All.

As it would for any of us.
