My notes for this strip reveal that it was based “more or less on something that really happened.” Although this was apparently “without, you know, any actual OAPs being killed in the process.” So that’s okay then.
You noticed lately how the adverts on TV keep pretending to be about something else?
The other day I saw this road safety piece pretending to be a make-up ad.
And then straight after that?
There was a make-up ad pretending to be about road safety!
I don’t know what they were expecting, really.
But when I ran over that OAP today? Goddamn, I looked good doing it.
