Simply Irresistable

Fog of war.

Why are we at war?

Because I don't want to give up.

Your dreams are a mess.

They are my masterpiece.

God help us then.

Roxanne, you don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right
--Roxanne, The Police

The above is an ad for the "Ranger, in .45 Long Colt & .410 Buckshot. An attacker's worst nightmare!" The lurid comic graphic pandering to the female demographic depicts the knife-wielding madman inside the open car door, much surprised by the hot rod blast from her Ranger.

The advertiser is Bond Arms, which has "Texas Defender" as part of its logo and features the motto, "Any Time. Any Place." It brings to mind something indispensable, something one could bring to a black tie affair as well as a backyard barbecue. So the Ranger is the Cary Grant of guns (?)

Upon consideration, wouldn't the woman in red just do better locking her car door and following good crime prevention techniques?

It would be cheaper, easier and far less messy.
