Joe Suzekie, in the internet comic blog The Greasers of Hazzick Flats, father of Clarabelle Suzekie, the girlfriend of Hard-Tack Haggerty, the leader of the Mugg Street Cats gang. A career criminal who spends his life in and out of prison, Joe is a handsome, dashing dude with dark skin and jet black hair. Spiggie Lomer sees him as flashy and exciting because of his looks. Using a stolen drivers' license belonging to one of his girl friends, he takes 14-year-old Spiggie to a notorious strip club that is frequented by the scum of the earth, where she eats a 52-ounce porterhouse steak, gets stinking drunk, and barfs all over Joe's expensive, flashy new shoes made of genuine leather. Spiggie's father shows up and drags her out of the strip club; when he gets her home he gives her her first and only good hard spanking. Later Joe tells a girl about that night, when he took a silly teenage girl to a strip club where she ate a 52-ounce porterhouse steak, drank herself silly, and puked all over his new shoes, stating "that was the worst date I ever had!" . . . Also Joe Jones, one of Spiggie's grade school crushes, whose name is on her "The Men In My Life" list. http://www.thegreasersofhazzickflats.blogspot.com
