If by classy you mean "lazy and pretentious (though not as pretentious as a limo)," then yes, yes it is classy. I also like how Marmaduke can somehow pay for a taxi but can't afford luggage and has to use a classic hobo bundle on a stick. Is that the bone of one of his hapless victims sticking out of that bandanna? Another question: why does that cab have suicide doors? And how do they know he's running away? He could just be off for an illicit rendezvous at a trashy motel, but doesn't want to risk having his car seen in the parking lot. I think Brad Anderson just gets stoned and draws Marmaduke doing ridiculous shit. Then he puts the comics in a drawer and forgets about them for a while. Later, he gets stoned again and writes the captions, totally cracking himself up the whole time.
