Summary Edit

Pepper Ann gets sick of her mom telling her what to do, so she decides to get her upper ear pierced as an expression of independence. But there's a problem: the piercing parlor won't allow minors to get anything pierced without a waiver signed by their parents. When Pepper Ann can't convince her mom to sign the form, she decides to forge Lydia's signature.


Nicky: You heard the bald, pierced, growling man...
Piercer: They don't send forgers to prison. They make them work at the Corndog Heaven.

The Desk GagEdit

"Scuff marks! ... Uh, I can't show 'em to you 'cause I can't pick 'em up."
