Smithson Thus Far... ·


As mentioned last time, Helen is a woman of simple and immediately discernible tastes. It's really kind of shocking that Dave never did get crossed with a gerbil in the strip proper.

Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: Is Dave really a species, per se? I mean, sure, he seems unlikely to interbreed with human females, but that's not so much a species barrier.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Well, Helen's already demonstrated a biological marker for Daveosity...
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Didn't Helen try the "Gerbilization Ray" on him? There was something about that around the time of the High School Reunion.
ribbles (ribbles) says: I wonder if Narbonic has an effective copyright on gerbil obsession, like how Woody Allen has an effective copyright on playing ragtime over the opening credits.
James Rice (jhrice) says: As I recall, this was one of the Ideas I came up with, but at the original release, Dave wasn't on the list.  Shaenon had forgotten to put him in!  That was immediately corrected. 
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: I say orang+gerbil, myself.
Sean Riedinger (ariamaki) says:

I really do love any "Chinese Take-Out Menu" list where Column B is just the same thing, over and over and over. It reminds me of a joke Mark Rosewater once made, about trying to make mix-and-match cards for the Blue color in Magic--

"In the end, Column B is "Draw a card" regardless of what Column A is-- Even if it is "Draw a card"."

Ah, two of my favorite comedy/story sources, psuedo-together. Bliss.
