Puppy hiatus! Reruns daily; new comics restart 1 January 2019
1 Monty: There's some trick, right? "All roads lead to Rome," so it doesn't matter which one we take?
2 Minnesota Jones: Don't be so naïve, boy! That much is obvious! The real question is how best to avoid entanglements with the carabinieri along the way.
3 Monty: But... carabinieri didn't exist in da Vinci's time!
4 Minnesota Jones: Did you or did you not point out that it was a trick question?

The Carabinieri are Italy's national military police force, and operate widely throughout the country as one of several police forces. They perform security and public order operations, as well as counter-terrorism, paramilitary special operations, and forensic crime investigation, and may also be sent overseas on peacekeeping and humanitarian missions. They are distinct from the civilian Polizia di Stato, which handles more routine law enforcement.
The Carabinieri are an example of a gendarmerie, a military force charged with civilian law enforcement. Such forces are relatively common in southern Europe, and many exist in Africa.
On another topic, I really should have rotated those flames in the background between each panel to give them the illusion of flickering motion. That would have been cool.
