I had forgotten this one, so when I re-read it I actually laughed. That was pretty fun.
So ends the great pants mystery. I was really happy that Shawn went with the leather briefs. The retroactively make all of Chuck’s complaints about Sapphire so much more absurdly hypocritical.
The armored codpiece on this one is what really makes it for me. What’s funny is when this ran originally, we had a number of comments from readers of “Ah!
