$14 for that corsage down the tubes


Contrary to what this might look like, the person in this drawing isn’t sad because the love of his life rejected him after he got dressed up and bought her a pretty flower. Rather, he’s sad because he knows he stole that rose from his neighbor’s yard, and worse yet, the neighbor’s dog, who saw him do it while looking out the window, knows it as well. And he knows that the dog knows, and he’s sad because he knows that dog will never look at him the same way again.
