    hahahaha oh jeez, Placebros is my new favorite pharmaceutical term.

    also: the monkey costume in the last pannel gave me Dragon Ball flashbacks.

    oh geez the Placebros are SO FUZZY. I CAN'T GET OVER IT. <3

  2. Wood says:

    Placebros ? You're a genius.

    Also… Oh yes, monkey costume, now I see it. For a moment I thought the medications had turned him into a werewolf…

  3. Vawn says:

    I didn't even realize the pun until I saw the comments… seriously though, that's a great word!

  4. StJason says:

    I want a placibros tee now. Two guys, "Which is my bro, and which is the placibro?"

    • Carl-E says:

      Oh… I get it now…

      I was reading it as place-bros, long a, silent e – bros of the place. Damn, too early on a holiday morning to get puns…

      But I love Dieless Pharmaceuticals! And yeah, a Dieless Pharmaceutical bro / placebro shirt would be really cool!

  5. Nick says:

    Will is sporting a pretty hardcore Eminem look in the 3rd panel.

  6. Rezmason says:

    Is he leaving Hanna at college in the first panel? Is that what that is? I didn't think they met till he started dealing.

  7. Oddspeed says:

    Placebros…. greatness.

  8. BenBen says:

    I spend a substantial amount of free time trying to incorporate "bro" into words and phrases (Jesus, Mary, and Brosef, e.g.), but placebros is pretty genius.

  9. Tyrone says:

    any work for some pence, bra, even stevedoring for gentlemen in the early 1900's… it's all about the nickles.

  10. Matt says:

    Why do people think this is Will? A clean-shaven Will? There is no such thing.

  11. MerchManDan says:

    I really wish I could figure out what's happening in the last panel.

  12. I just LOVE your screen toning work Meredith! it's so nice to look at! When you don't notice that it's there, its been done right, and this one just blends so perfectly into the style.

    Don't stop being awesome!

  13. AlmostLiterally says:

    Is that Hanna in panel one? Wha?

  14. seann says:

    Dieless Pharmacuetical; with Dieless youll die less!

  15. dottianne says:

    I knew it was Will! Well, no… BUT I SUSPECTED IT.

  16. Angie says:

    Oh cute!! I didn't realize until I checked the archives but Will DID mention he unloaded ship cargo as a job when Eve first met him. Nice callback!

  17. Erd ist froh says:

    I have this weird feeling that Will and Hanna (if it is her in the first panels?) have more history together than we know of now. His angry look and emphasis on "done" and her sorry look… were they together in college perhaps?
