Go Figure #1

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They'll_Do_It_Every_Time)

Remember this cartoon strip? They'll Do It Every Time was created by Jimmy Hatlo and was syndicated to major newspapers in America. The series depicted frustrations and ironies of everyday life and people. I used to love this series when I was a kid.

Well, I'm going to start something similar called Go Figure. A place for little vents on my blog. Insha Allah I will figure out how to use cool pictures and graphics in the future.

To cristen my series, I start with Go Figure #1:

Oil prices fell to below $100 a barrel last night.

When oil prices rise, gas station owners run out (sometimes within hours) and increase their prices ... same gas they had in the ground before the oil prices increased.

Will gas station owners run out this morning and reduce prices?

Ya Haqq!

Smarty pants Darvish! I believe they still continue to syndicate this! But you are right - it goes waaaay back, lol!
