I really thought this would do better. Just goes to show you just never know! It rated high in my book. Very well done and should have scored well north of 6 IMO.

Presented in top form to comply with Larson spirit. A very nice composition with a pointed funny observation.

The caption is a little less than Larsonesque, I feel? But that doesn't matter as much since you got the right feel in what you wrote in the text bubble.
