Michael Shappe (unclemikey) says: Actually, I always assumed he was standing on the street, shouting up at their window... But I'll take your word for it :-)

What no lighting bolt?
Leon Arnott (l) says: Extinguished cigarette total: 2.
Basil Jelly (basil_jelly) says:
There's the lighining bolt!
Leon Arnott (l) says: Wednesday's comic: Sorry, but "Crackle!" is not a valid onomatopoeia for an electrical discharge, no matter how diminuitive. On the other hand, you get effort points for attempting to draw "Danger" in stencil font four times. Though I do wonder what a box marked simply "Danger" would have inside...
Dave III (dave_iii) says:
The best part about the strip in general is the fact that you can track Dave's moving back and forth behind the machine. He could be doing anything back there... working on a specific part and reaching around for tools, repairing four entirely unrelated parts, dodging back and forth to escape the cloud, reenacting Ziegfeld Follies of 1922 using rubber bands, pencils and other office supplies, making faces at Helen and Mell from relative safety, anything. The simple fact is, it doesn't matter. We know he's there, and that he's getting wet.
This is one example (in my head, at least) as to why Narbonic is as popular as it is, it's because you gave the audience enough credit to figure out what was going on.
Chris Brunner (cjbrunner) says: You're a brilliant yet cruel woman, Sarge.
Leon Arnott (l) says: Friday's Comic: "If you're in a situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's walk into the shrink wherever you are, just walk in, say "Shrink, You can get / anything you want, / at Alice's restaurant". And walk out."
A.G. Hopkins (blackbyrd2) says: And if two people walk into the shrink and sing it, in harmony, they'll think they're gay and they won't take either of them.
Liza Furr (liza) says: And if <i>three</i> people do it, three--can you imagine three people walking in, singing a bar of Alice's Restaurant, and walking out?
Tim O\'Toole (timmy_otoole) says: I will be sitting over here on the Group-W bench.
ribbles (ribbles) says: They'd think it was a movement. And that's just what it is. The Alice's restaurant anti-mass-a-cree movement.
Dave III (dave_iii) says: I honestly would like to think she'd have opted for clean boxers.
Megan Miller (we-all-mad-here) says:
I've ready this comic all the way up to December, 2006.... I don't think the "Mel" of 2006 would have done this.... (Poor Artie probably would have been pushed into it, Hahaha!)
Leon Arnott (l) says: Saturday's Comic: "So, young intern, we meet again" doesn't really make much sense when neither of them have left the room since their last encounter, which was, what, only several minutes ago?
Dave III (dave_iii) says: And, Leon, your point is? ^_^
John Weiss (cheshirecat) says: Sometimes, you just gotta follow the narrative rules. Confronting your former pupil in a final duel is almost as important as the single flaming wheel that rolls away from the destruction of any vehicle.
Rob McCarthy (notbob) says: Another reason for me to beleive I'm the living embodiment of Dave Davenport... *help!*
Kathleen Carter (katcar) says:
Regarding Leon Arnott question about what crates with 'Danger' written on them hold. The answer awaits!
DAVE CLONES - FROM THE FUTURE
...and no, I don't know why they're there.
Nahuel Méndez Diodati (chirigami) says:
I don't think you'll ever read this, because I'm posting it way in the "past", but... I'll post anyway.
First, you'll have to excuse me for my kinda bad English, because it's not my main language. I've learnt it mostly from videogames (Pokémon Yellow! =D), Internet and Music. Oh yeah, school supposedly teach me a bit of it...
Well, I agree with Megan Miller: Mell has changed a lot through the first year of the comic. I even thought she was kinda naive and she didn't had actually "evil" intentions. And then there was that sprite themed strip where her only sprite was saying "Kill kill kill kill". Only then knew I she was a homicidal maniac. It actually took me by surprise. The 2000 Mell talked nicely to Dave, then the 2001-2005 Mell hated, dispised Dave, and then in 2006 she shown us her kinda "Good" side, or at least, some mercy...
Then, something else... You made a pun in Spanish, my "default" language: "Diversión" is "Fun" in Spanish. So when Mell said about the diversion "Nah, it'll be fun" you unawarely made some kind of pun in Spanish.
OK, as you may see, I have a problem with Verborrhage... I promise this is the last line of my post. Sorry!Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
