Selansky’s Doesn’t Have A Floor Show?

Filed under: actual action, freak hands, Just plain sad, softball — nedryerson @ 3:32 am


We’re back to the one panel of sports and two panels of Del Bader format. In our ‘sports’ panel, one of Tilden’s girls swings wildly with her eyes closed, but at least she is attired in a softball uniform. On to Del’s Dinner meeting…

Del’s client won’t need his usual order this quarter! Oh no! Del freaks out a little bit. His face contorts into a Ted Cruz face, or even worse, a Ted Cruz face that suddenly wants four Moscow Mules. Oh, he’s doubling his order. The client needs twice the usual amount of industrial solvents this quarter! Things are booming at Amalgamated Industries. This calls for a celebration. What’ll you have, Del?



  1. Yay! Industrial solvents all around!

    So what happened at Amalgamated Industries? A little union-busting got out of hand, and now they’ve got some bodies to dispose of?

  2. Using misdirection when closing a major business deal with an alcoholic salesman… I like this Balding McBusinessman guy.

  3. This news should send Consolidated Lint skyrocketing.

  4. Assuming Del is recently off the sauce, he may be experiencing classic withdrawal symptoms. Like agitation and aggression (or even hallucinations and seizures!)

    What I’m sayin is Boaty McCustomer should not be poking the bear.

  5. This could be quite fortuitous for Del if the ACME Forehead Polish account is a big one. Pretty much if you’re a sales guy and you have to break some bad news to your boss, framing it like this: “Hey, boss. I may not show up to next week’s sales review as I’ll be doing 20 to life for drunkenly plowing through a school playground, but FYI, I doubled our quarterly revenues for the AFP account.” You can be fairly certain the sales manager will only hear a faint buzzing noise up until the part about doubling revenues.

  6. I wonder whether DUI # 2 is in the offing….

  7. Looking at Del in p2, does anyone else see Robert Mitchum with a terrible case of gas pains? I too wonder if we will see another DUI after Del returns to that Central City bar to chat up Ming the Merciless, or John, or whoever the head-shaven bartender was.

  8. I agree with the other commenters that we are risking another DUI here, but I think it might be a bit more complicated than expected. I’m guessing Mr. Double-Your-Pleasure will tel Del “let’s celebrate over a drink” and Del will decline, and the other guy will be “you won’t drink with me? I guess you don’t want my business either,” which will force Del to get hammered with him. Del will find himself three sheets to the wind, and he calls home hoping that his wife or son will pick him up, but both tell him how disappointed they are in him and hang up on him. Then Del, due to this bar being beyond the reach of Uber, Lyft or even taxis, will feel he has no alterntative but to try to drive home — and then he gets nailed for the second DUI.

  9. vaganova @7: Now that I’ve seen Ted Cruz, I can’t unsee him. Thanks, Ned!

  10. P3: the last time I saw someone talking about chemicals with that expression on their face was in “Breaking Bad”.
