Martin & Tracy

I received this leaflet through my door the other day, I thought you might like to see it. Something about it worries me.


Here's Martin, hard at work. No bubbles in that wallpaper, and he's wearing a button-down shirt, lending a confident, stylish air to proceedings.


And here's Tracy. Nice job with those tiles, Tracy. That's a wicked finish too - no chance of cracking.


WHO'S THIS? It's not Tracy, and it's certainly not Martin!


The whole situation just has me feeling a little ill at ease. Until I know who the third party is, I won't be calling on Martin & Tracy for any of my painting and decorating needs. 

Your move, Martin & Tracy.

Perhaps she's Ampersand and their type is just incredibly misleading?

I never trust those sort of line-drawing figures! I suspect they are never having as much of a wholesome good time as they portray, and that secretly they are drug addicts who commit domestic violence.

Pretty sure she isn't part of the team anymore. One bad gardening job and Tracy put her under the tiles.

I'm also concerned that they don't say how or when they remove your lights.

If Martin likes to garden in drag, who are we to judge?

Trey said...

Seems #3 is a clear victim of human trafficking, BUT at least she is learning a career!

I kind of giggled because it looked like mystery girl was digging with an apple at first.

It's a home maintenance love triangle, and she's the violent vertex.

This isn't about Martin & Tracy, but today's comic. I like the occasional wordless strip. You couldn't have done that with SGR.

How do you know that Martin and Tracey are first names? If we assume that it is the Martin and Tracey families collaborating in this business venture, all mysteries are solved.

Mr Martin does the wallpaper, Ms Tracey does the tiles.
Mrs Martin potters around in the garden. :)
