Hide! Don’t let her hear– oh crap, I said that out loud… Jim Campbell October 21, 2019 at 2:13 am 4 years ago Language chips, like the Babelfish, have a lot to answer for! minando October 21, 2019 at 3:14 am 4 years ago For world-wide-vegetarism and other crimes against the natural order of… ….ummm… … I DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE COW THINKS ABOUT MY EATING HABITS!!! … That said, I’m totally for world peace. 🙂 TB October 21, 2019 at 10:48 pm 4 years ago Geeze, that’s right. Everybody in SpaceTrawler who comes back to Earth is now Doctor Doolittle. Except they can’t talk back. Pedrocelli October 21, 2019 at 2:17 am 4 years ago She forgot she still has the chip implanted. Bikkie interacts with people (of all varieties) very differently now to the way he did before he could understand them. Now Emily is about to find that its a sword that cuts both ways.’ minando October 21, 2019 at 3:09 am 4 years ago Sometimes, the call of the wild should be muted. For it’s own sake. Knicholas October 21, 2019 at 7:35 am 4 years ago Oh my God I never thought of this! As another great sci fi cartoonist once said, “Food that talks isn’t food”! Food. Food food food. That’s a funny word. Foooooood. It’s like it doesn’t have any meaning when you say it a lot. DSL October 21, 2019 at 9:12 am 4 years ago An old-timey diner near me has a big sign out front that says “GOOD FOOD.” Makes me wonder why the words don’t rhyme — and should they have the “oooh” sound of “food” or the “oouh” sound of “good”?

Garth Hill October 22, 2019 at 10:40 am 4 years ago that’s so damn cool. rock on, Owen. Rikard October 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm 4 years ago Mmmm – bonus! Now she can easily test the quality of the meat: -“So, any intestinal parasites, infections, that kind of stuff?” -“Oh no, I’m very healthy, how nice and considerate of you to ask!” Ka-blam, thud, weaze, fart, trickle. Om-nom-nom; the sound of the circle of Life. Efogoto October 21, 2019 at 12:16 pm 4 years ago Run! She’s armed and dangerously hungry! Tomn October 21, 2019 at 1:59 pm 4 years ago Come to think of it, there’s no reason the translation chip can’t work on machines as well, is there? Listening to the 56k modem sound must be a real trip now.

Scott October 22, 2019 at 12:53 am 4 years ago You are all assuming that coyote isn’t family. She may be ruthless, but I don’t remember any indication that she’s cannibalistic… Gregg Eshelman November 3, 2019 at 2:56 am 4 years ago Is that a Henry lever action rifle?
