13.Nov.2013 Mike Riley Summed Up in One Photoshop
The blog format compresses the image a bit, so click on it for full scale laughs.
For those who are young and don’t know this comic:
The characters involved in the gag are Charlie Brown and Lucy van Pelt. Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she will hold a football while he kicks it. Charlie Brown usually refuses to kick it at first, not trusting Lucy. Lucy then says something to persuade Charlie Brown to trust her. Charlie Brown runs up to kick the ball, but at the very last second before he can kick it, Lucy removes the ball and Charlie Brown flies into the air, before falling down and hurting himself. The gag usually ends with Lucy pointing out to Charlie Brown that he should not have trusted her.
I’d say this sums up the Riley/fan relationship, wouldn’t you?
