    There’s only one real person in the lineup. The rest are
    only vaguely person-shaped. If he’s having this hard a time
    picking someone out, I don’t think he got a good look at the
    perpetrator (or anything else, for that matter).

    I guess I’ve been watching too many UK and Commonwealth detective shows: My first reaction was, Oh, that’s an identity parade! .

    The cops couldn’t find anyone to fill out the lineup/identity parade so they improvised.

    Based on the expression of the one dude in the lineup, the cops have rigged it so that he is the only option.

    This is adding more story than what’s implied in the panel, but to me, it looks like the victim woke up in the middle of the night and saw something vaguely person shaped, and got scared out of his mind. So, naturally, he went to the police station to figure out whether what he saw was a real person (1), something which could have been in his home (2 and 3, maybe 4), or something out of a dream/nightmare (maybe 4, definitely 5 and 6).

    My money is on #2.

    In a lineup, you want to choose a bunch of people who are all in some sense vaguely similar so that the witness can point out the correct one among the same type. In this lineup, the choices are so amazingly different that it makes you wonder just how poor the eyewitnesses description was. The eyewitness is having great trouble telling the difference between a frog on a pile of books, a duck holding a balloon, and a person, which suggests that he may not be a terribly reliable witness.

    I laughed, anyway.

    Sorry, a teapot with a balloon, not a duck.

    To me, the joke seems more that the line-up is rigged: the police want to make sure that the witness picks #1, so they’ve made it really, really obvious to the witness which one to pick. The witness does look like he’s thinking about it carefully, but that’s just for show. Witness #1 looks very unhappy, since he knows how this is going to turn out.

    I don’t know… The way number three keeps looking around the room with those big orange eyes seems pretty suspicious to me.

    I liked new-ish guy’s idea — it’s such a nicer world, I want to live there!

    Evidently the only description the police had to go on from this witness was “about my height.”

    I like this. It’s weird. I think this is likely the whole point of the cartoon.

    I also like that the guy is having trouble figuring out which set-of-things best matches what he saw.

    [Looks at the balloon] “No, he was taller than that.”
