Panels 1 & 2:Has anyone ever read (or seen) Cujo? If you have, you'll remember the book's primary action turns on a woman and a son getting trapped in her broken-down Pinto station wagon by a giant, slavering St. Bernard (that would be Cujo). Clearly, Percival Carrington here is having flashbacks to Cujo. Panicked at the sight of the giant, slavering squirrel clambering down a nearby Sequoia, he gets his car stuck in the mud.
Panel 3: And, driven mad by fear, Percival begins to narrate his misadventures outloud. Unfortunately for us, Percival is dumb as a fucking post and spends most of the time describing things so self-evident they should generally be left unsaid.
