(What? You tell us every weekend.) Bikkie for sure wasn’t implanting a tracking device, because why would they need a tracking device if they know he’ll be in a very safe cell where a pugilistic kangaroo can find him for regular sexy times? It’s not like he’ll have the motivation or opportunity to escape and lead them to any secret locations they want to find. Sardtok November 6, 2018 at 3:20 am 10 months ago I have a strange feeling Bikkie’s conjugal visits aren’t very sexy. Efogoto November 6, 2018 at 12:53 am 10 months ago Bikkie here reminds me of George Carlin’s explanation of Muhammad Ali’s views: “I’ll beat ’em up, but I won’t kill ’em.” Night-Gaunt49 November 6, 2018 at 1:18 am 10 months ago Bikke has the mentality of a Secret Police Captain. Rough em up but don’t kill them since they don’t say much after death. (Until they find a way to deal with that.) The rambunctious macropod pugilist talks loud and his fists and feet talk louder. He even has a sense of humor. Maybe a genius of his species. He almost looks like a prehistoric version his size and went extinct just 10,000 years ago with the great die off of the megafauna all over the world. He is a great character. I can’t recall if he has used the single or double foot kick yet. The aliens are having a new experience with him and the other humans. Macropodidae (macropods, meaning “large foot”). In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red kangaroo. Wikipedia Herandar November 6, 2018 at 9:01 am 10 months ago I believe it is a flu shot. Any other character and I wouldn’t, but I don’t think Bikkie is capable of such duplicity. Christopher Baldwin November 6, 2018 at 1:32 pm 10 months ago A lovely thought, but no. It IS a tracking device. That panel is more about me trying to show what a crummy liar he is. 🙂 Stanistani November 7, 2018 at 4:59 am 10 months ago I am sad that you resolved this. I wanted to see the many twisted divagations the other theory would take. 🙂 gaplant November 6, 2018 at 11:44 am 10 months ago MARRIED IN PAAAAIIINNNN Peter Rogan November 6, 2018 at 1:28 pm 10 months ago Bikkie’s moral code is rough in practice, but I see it is nuanced and even beneficial. Fair fights require fairness all around, a code of honor intended to be universal and respected. Kind of like that scene from “Excalibur” where a young squire (not-yet King) Arthur is defied by Uryenes, a local lord, for being not just self-aggrandizing, but not so much as a knight – not someone to who he would ever surrender. Arthur on the spot, in the middle of the battle in a marshy moat, handed Uryenes his sword Excalibur and got on his knees, saying, “You, Uryenes, will make me a knight. Then as knight to knight… I can offer you mercy.” Would a Secret Police Captain extend such a boon to an enemy? I doubt it very much. Bikkie has within him the nobility we expect of a King. Expect to see more of it. Expect to see more come out of it. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
