Panel 1:"Which, you will note, I am not currently sitting in because I am towing it behind this brown, hard-top sedan."
Panel 2:Ummm...Mark...about your legal theory. Prosecution for illegal waste handling is what occurs when the government has evidence that a person has caused to transport, transported or disposed of hazardous waste without a permit or in violation of a permit. Prosecution involves the presentation of that evidence so a judge or jury may determine if the person is, in fact, responsible for those illegal actions. If the person is found responsible and convicted of the crime, then they are penalized. You, my friend, seem to have mixed this all up.
Now, maybe your mistake lies in some discomfort you may have about the word "penalize." Rest assured, penalization has nothing to do with male genitalia (atleast in this context), and is all about convicted malfeasors paying money and serving jail time.
On a totally unrelated note, Mark, I'm coming to believe that birds play a symbolic role in your life. Right now, there's a black vulture floating over Joey the Mullet's jeep. I think someone is telling you two that you're going to be dead soon.
