    Agreed, but I had no way to edit it out.

    I am thinking that Trudeau purposely used that phrase to ensure that the strip would be understood by the A2As.

    Nobody "fondles" Glocks.

    That's what 1911s are for.

    I should be able to fondle (or stroke or caress) my weapon (LEOs do), as long as I don't "whip it out" (until and unless it is needed).

    I noticed the same thing about Trudeau's recent comic, but I bet it went completely over his head.

    I don't know if I'd go that far. I think he thinks he's being snarky and sarcastic. That is to say, I think snark and sarcasm were his goal.

    The success or failure depends on perspective. Personally, I think he failed.

    Women don't go for "abs of plastic"; they want "abs of steel."

    I don't like the high cap "clips" reference either, as it seems to be done in mediaspeak, which means " I am stupid on this subject". Fondling a Glock- well it could be an OCer who has a crappy belt and is trying to keep the holster from flopping around. Probably a cheap Uncle Mikes holster too LOL. Of course the Glock fondler might be a cop, what with the "Glock leg" problem among LEO's.
