This cartoon is kind of a stretch, and I’m OK admitting that.
I don’t remember where I heard “throwing his voice,” but it’s a pretty short walk to “throwing his invoice,” and I scribbled the idea down.
The problem was, it wasn’t an obvious gag graphically, so, loathe as I am to do it, I had to go for the speech balloon and caption combo.
I think it turned out OK, and the expression on the guy on the right helps, but sometimes you just have to draw them up and see what happens.
