So according to my crew and sometimes comicstrip contributors, Francisco and Jon, this sort of joke has been done a million times already and thus they ruined my comic. It proves to me once again that it's impossible to have an original idea because no matter how clever you are there's a thousand people who are just as clever and in exactly the same ways. I've never heard of these sorts of additions and variations of the lawyer joke from frame one, but from experience I am not surprised that they exist nor that others have had the same similar thoughts about second steps. Is an idea original if you don't know that it's been done before?
So thanks for ruining my comic asshats. I almost deleted it but I am stuck on the idea so I thought I'd at least finish the rough draft and post that. Now I am satisfied and I can move on.
