Real English
Off the Rails

Real Life Rock Tales is a comic in Spin magazine based on personal stories from various music celebrities. This frame comes from a story by singer Kelly Osbourne and it features her father, heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne. When she was a child, Kelly believed that she could cure her dog of eating its own feces by putting a pencil in its anus. Not only was the method ineffective, but it also required her father to catch the dog and remove the pencil. Sharon is the name of Ozzy's wife and to go off the rails (which comes from train terminology) is to behave in a wild, unacceptable manner.
