Holly: May I ask a stupid question?
Delkin: Better than anyone I know.

This is completely based on something that happened the other night when I was hanging out with my friends, watching a(n American) football game. One of my friends (let's call her P-chan) asked if she could ask a stupid question. And without missing a beat, my other friend (B-chan) responded with "Better than anyone I know". It was absolutely hilarious, so all the rest of us started laughing, and shortly after B-chan revealed that he had been waiting years to use that line. I asked "Really?" and he explained that he had heard this joke used on The Golden Girls years ago, and made it his mission to use it in conversation. (The fact he had been waiting so long to say it was funny in itself!) So since I was at my computer anyway, I obviously had to draw a comic about it.

(P-chan didn't think it was as funny though, and never did ask her question about football. B-chan apologised. It was still hilarious though).
