@Phillip: The turtles have a conspiracy. They want to trip and kill us all. There are other times in the comic where they prove this fact.

I just started reading this comic today and must say: Love the turtle! Definately needs its own character profile. I hope to see it more often as I read on.

@earth Yes I did notice Lucy’s face when she got caught. Just to be honest, she is my favorite character in the series. Because she can kick your *** almost as fast as Chuck Norris xD

My two favorite parts of this comic:

1. the drool coming out of David’s mouth

2. Paulo getting owned by a turtle

…I bet it was Michaelangelo ;)

There’s only a turtle because if McCain had tripped Paulo, blame would be due.
