Using his pull to get lunch?
Just a little slice of life. It seems Earl’s wife has just dropped off his lunchbox, and now he needs to figure out how to get the thing onto his desk, so he can enjoy his meatloaf sandwich and Ding Dongs.
Earl’s plan involves using his finger to hoist the lunchbox, with the help of an improvised pulley, but now he’s wondering how he’ll get the box over that metal wheel, and feeling embarrassed that he didn’t think it through adequately. He’s also looking at that white dusting of sugar, wishing he hadn’t eaten all of his jelly doughnuts.
Meanwhile, friend Lonnie is watching and feeling smug, because he knows his own solution would have been to just eat the lunch on the floor, instead of moving the box. Ah, good times!
