Would you kill a man you hated — For thirty million dollars?

Best things about this cover

    • OK, remember that’s “thirty million dollars” in late ’40s dollars, so I believe the answer to the question is “hell yes.”
    • Love his expression—I believe he is telling that lady, “You got served!”
    • In turn, I believe the lady is either mimicking masturbation or trying (unsuccessfully, by the look of it) to make cutlery disappear.
    • “You call those boobs!?”—sorry, just thinking of more things that guy might be saying.
    • Her: “I made you a canoe out of a napkin and this is how you thank me!?” I could go on all day. This one painting is like an endless one-act play.
