Book Shelf: Dukes Of Hazzard Coloring & Activity Book, Part 2 Of 2

Let's continue with our badly drawn, incoherently plotted Dukes of Hazzard coloring book! Yay! I like this spread because it looks like Daisy Duke is looking in horror at the word scramble she's incapable of solving:

Remember how I said that this coloring book was a reminder of a time before computers gave hacks the ability to make something look halfway decent? That lettering above is a great example of that. Now the story lurches forward towards the denouement:

Daddy Bear Duke is relieved while the deputy's extra chromosome causes him to contort with rage:

That was fun and wholesome! What will fall out of the book shelf next?

Your Lichtenstein-ing of Daisy made this whole trip worthwhile. More than, even.
