I wanted to address this before we got too much further with the main flashback. I try to keep John from being an asshole all the time, that's George's deal... So when I dropped the knowledge that George called dibs on Lyn in the last strip, I wanted to make sure folks knew John wasn't just being a douche nozzle by dating her now.
When I was trying to come up with something goofy for George to want at the store for panel three Sour Cream and Salsa Pork Rinds
were the only thing that made me laugh.
Although I know for a fact I'd never try them in real life....
