Someone on a radio news story said that it seemed like everyone he met was “down in the mulligrubs.” I didn’t think that sounded so bad. Probably better than “waylaid with the Smurfs” or “crawling with the care bears.”
Panel 1: Two men walk in a park. The tall man says to the short, “Things will get better. Just gotta stay positive, I tell her.” The short man agrees. “Right. Don’t be down in the mulligrubs.”
Panel 2: Silence.
Panel 3: The tall man starts to ask, “what’s a mulli-” The short interrupts: “I don’t know but it’s gotta be bad.”
Panel 4: The members of a mulligrub welcome committee look dejected.
