Well, there's a purse-snatcher who made a mistake. And Aaina's identification as La Femme Chat de Paris seems to be increasingly confirmed.

Welp, his days as an un-arrested man are numbered. The only question is: Who will get him first?

Arrested, or just stomped face-first into the pavé?

Incidentally, I’m now guessing that Cammi and Aaina will curb-stomp the snatcher, and somebody will pick up the necklace, turn around, and bump into a gendarme — who’ll say “Hey, that’s that valuable necklace that was reported stolen just an hour ago! Congratulations on recovering it!”

Well, first he'll be stomped into the pavé, then the police will show up to arrest him after they're called. It's what happens all the time on superhero shows.

Also, that sounds like exactly the sort of thing that would happen in this strip. I doubt nothing at this point.

It’s pretty much a stock comedy thing. Nothing wrong with it, but hardly weird.

Something every comedy is obligated to do at least once, eh? Perhaps.

I keep wanting to make a Batman reference vis a vis Cammi, but I just can't make it work in my head. Not enough angst on her part.

Well, if Aaina gets to the guy first, there's always "So that's what that feels like"...

(And Aaina could offer "Never steal from someone you can't outrun, kid.")

They appear to be in an alley I don't see how anyone could just pass by with this going on.

Pass by the end of the alley? Or the gendarme could walk into said alley, attracted by the noise of Pierrot le Fou there having his face introduced to the pavé. Whatevs.

At this point I half expect it to be Ne-regarde-pas-Maman and her daughter. :P

^ That would have been hilarious.

Actually disappointed Aaina did not react immediately.

Aaina and Cammi should team up to become superheros, and Sandra and Ingrid should be going to the bed and making the exciting love.
