Moving swiftly on...this strip was drawn yesterday, like #47, and refers to the recent mind-shattering revelation that the prices of certain brands of bottled water, compared to the price of tap water, represent a markup of around 180,000%. What?! People who filter and bottle ordinary tap water and sell it on the basis of "funky" packaging are ripping people off? Say it ain't so, guv'!!
Although it'll never happen, I'd like some marketing bod to see this cartoon and begin producing a brand of water called "Fauxhemian Poseur".
Thanks go to Jason Phelan for coming up with the name "Mount Spanklin" (five years ago...).
