Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: As if the issue weren't already confusing enough, JP Chabot has drawn the Skin Horse field team as the opposite genders. JP writes, "I apologize for my inferior art skills...but I hope you and Jeff find it amusing!"

We do indeed. Thanks very much!

Channing: JP Chabot drew the above strip well before we confused and/or gave everybody funny feelings with the whole "Unity sewing herself onto Alphonse's cadaver" issue, which makes this piece of guest art a solid contender for the Eric Burns award for inadvertent Skin Horse prescience.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Heh. :)
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

Are we to assume that now-male Sweetheart is humping that chair?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Try To Remember", Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones)

Swapping their gender!
Now J.P. will render
Each girl and guy
As other sex now!

Swapping their gender!
Throw genes in a blender,
So X is Y,
And Y is X now!

Swapping their gender!
Now Tip's lost a member!
Will "she" dress like men, or
Start wearing "jockeys"?

Girls become men for
The strength boost, and then
They get cocky ... cocky ... cocky!

Eric Burns (ericburns) says: Yay! I have an award named after me! And I could totally see Tip starting to rock some Armani, with a little Brooks Brothers for casual wear and the occasional James Dean ensemble for rebellious candor. He'd typically not bother with binding things down unless something like a tank top required a flat profile. The hardest pill for him to swallow, naturally, would be shifting to a short haircut, probably with a moderate amount of product. I see the resulting effect as conveying more metrosexual flair (albeit from the other side) than butch-chic. Of course, for a night out, an ascot, slicked back hair and a cigarette holder (probably with unlit cigarette) would be a must.
Maricruz Villalobos-Zamora (maki_p) says:

Speedball really need to stop apologizing for his art. IT'S FINE! And his story rocks.

JP Chabot (speedball) says:

Yeah,  I suppose I do need to stop apologizing for my art. But the last time I did, and I showed it to someone, they basically said they'd been nearly struck blind by how bad it was. That's the kind of thing that sticks with you. However! I'm glad you liked the filler, guys. Yeah, I did think she-Tip would be cool in a nice suit, but maybe next time...

Philip Cohen (treesong2) says:

Hey if you want to party in downtown Cleveland, West 6th St. has nightclubs called Lust and Sin across the street from each other. And in the same block are Barflyy, Blind Pig Speakeasy, Dive Bar, Liquid Cafe, Tequila Ranch, and others. I've never been in any of them, but at the end of the block is Metro Cafe, and I highly recommend their pizzas.

Going back to the question of burning bogs: peat bogs were burning across Russia during the record heat last summer ( That's quibbling, admittedly, since they'd been (mostly?) drained for farming and peat mining.

Joseph Charneskie (mutanttsentry) says:

Wait, didn't Red Dwarf establish the gender opposite of a dog is a cat?
