I have no idea where this is going, but Viola needed to fit into all this somehow.
This is an oblique shout out to my friend Norm Feuti who draws the wonderful strip Retail. Originally, the salesman was named "Norm Grumbels" after the department store in Retail, but it got changed. Norm Feuti is nothing like the character here portrayed, though I'm sure he's had customers like dis guy.
And this is just in answer to the above strip. Petey and Andre each get a chance to present their comic book Platonic ideal.
