Campaign contributions well spent

Rob: Measures, propositions, city council, college board... this is a lot of data.

Rob: Sad news, friends.  The time for convincing has passed.
Stu: He's got VOTE by MAIL.  That BOAT has SAILED.

Rob: Indeed.  Know the system, people.  Like asking a cute girl to prom just a week in advance, you missed your window.

Stu: You go to your prom?
Rob: THAT is IRRELEVANT.

Again with the election?! Since the big vote takes place in a couple days, there won't be many more of these themed strips, I promise.

Anyway, this is a pretty straightforward interpretation of what actually happened to me. I vote by mail so I don't have to take time out of my schedule to wait in line like a chump. I do miss out on the "I voted" sticker, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. I managed to send my ballot in pretty early, so the subsequent influx of campaign mailers were utterly ineffectual.

I haven't seen a mailbox like Rob's in a long time. I grew up with one, complete with the pivoting metal flag. It was a handy touch for those times when you're eagerly awaiting something, such as mail-order cereal toys... earned by amassing proofs of purchases and seriously screwing up your body's expectations of sugar intake.
