    Can’t sell big wallets to people without enough money to put in them… Comment on economy woes?

    Maybe he thought that since jumbo purses are popular, jumbo wallets would also be a hit? Seems to be taking it a little personally :)

    I like how his hairline has receded since he made the logo.

    I think it’s just an idea that never caught on.

    The joke being who the hell would WANT to drag around a jumbo wallet? I agree with the connection to the jumbo purses (I know women that literally carry around 60 lbs with them), but guy wallets are designed to fit in a pant pocket (you know who got paid that day when they sit lopsided at the bar).

    Rasheed has it. Personally, I look for the smallest possible wallet — mine doesn’t even hold money, just cards. This comic is a case of someone creating an absurd product that no one wants.

    All men know that the women are extremely interested in the size of a man’s wallet.Frank has crated a giant-sized wallet to attract women. it has failed because it will not fit in a man’s pocket. This means he must carry it around and everyone can see the ring that indicates the guys are looking to score. Nothing puts off women like the idea that you’re looking to get all “Arlo”, even if that is what they want. Therefore, word spread amongst men that the wallet actually decreases your chances of Arloing and guys don’t buy it.

    I think this is one of those “seemed like such a good idea” things. People like big things, right? What do people need? Wallets. Every male carries one and some females have them in their purses, so what do we do? Make a wallet with an edge: it’s big! The biggest wallet around! People won’t be able to resist it!

    It didn’t quite work out as he planned, but if he would just add a handle it would make quite a nice canvas bag! The guy in the ad seemed so happy too. (Also, I think that the guy in the ad is not the owner, or if it is he has added a little on top somehow.)

    Maybe people aren’t winning those giant sized checks on game shows anymore.

    The clues:

    In the logo, he has more hair. Now, he has less. Therefore, time has passed.

    So, he was in business for years. There were many years in which jumbo wallets were selling. Now, they’re not.

    Because people are poor, now, and don’t have enough money to put in a jumbo wallet. It’s an economy joke.

    Ian - Somehow you manage to make me hate life with your complete lack of understanding and over-analysis. You need to ask the author for the “big red arrow of humor… maybe that will help.”
    Its funny, because its absurd. that is all…
