Lassie came dashing in and the feeling of emergency filled the room.

"Arf," she said.

"What's that girl?" Gramps, said, "Timmy's felled in the old well again? In the well girl? Timmy's in the old well?" and sprinted out of the house, overall strap flapping at his back, "I'll saves ya little fella, you hang in there Timmy, Gramps is comin to saves ya!"

Timmy died in a barn fire six years ago, right about the same time Gramps started to lose it. Lassie never gets sick of that joke.

07/29/2004 TheBuyer: I have always thought of Lassie as a sick fuck.
07/29/2004 scoop: Good laughs.
07/29/2004 Mr. Pony (4): The execution is kinda poopy, but the gag is top-notch!
07/29/2004 scoop (4): Agreed. I think something more specific then "lose it" would have made me laugh even harder at Grandpa's dementia. The opeing line was lazy, feeling of emergency. The detail work could have amped up the drama and made his confusion much more worthy of our healthy derision. But the joke, like Pony said, is good. However if the same author fucks up again I withdraw the right to change the amount of stars I am allotting.
07/29/2004 anonymous: Hi scoop, thank you for your comments! I wanted to let the reader picture his own gramps and his own Lassie, possibly in black and white. Also, I treated that last graph about ten different ways and none of them worked as short and clean. I even went as far as diagnosing gramps with Down Syndrome, with is funny, but totally absurd and takes away from the joke that Lassie does it on purpose.
07/29/2004 Litcube (4): Hah!
07/29/2004 ElTwisto (5): Buyer, this on is funny than your other dumb shit.

07/30/2004 Ferucio P. Chhretan: Oh, now it's the Portuguese. look at my first name, TheBuyer...
07/30/2004 TheBuyer: ElTwisto is half Irish, half Portuguese, sorry Ferucio. I know him personally it's not an attack on your parentage.
07/30/2004 qualcomm (4): i coulda swore i voted on this yesterday
08/3/2004 Pix (4): I laughed more at the first cut. Sometimes its best not to overthink these things, its cost you a star.
