Time for the cape escape, Lonnie!
Hello, and welcome back to a popular feature we like to call, “Things Maybe we should have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.”
It looks to me like they’re just guys in dumb hats chewing on fancy capes.
Oh, excuse me. I’ve just been informed they are positioning the capes so that if their boss gets the grande fling from the bull, they can disappear and not have to go in after him.
They instantly turn into two cape-covered dudes getting the hell out of Dodge without looking back. That makes perfect sense to me! Why didn’t we just say that in the first place?
