It can be pretty tiring otherwise. The Shadow December 17, 2021 at 12:42 am 2 years ago How quaint, to associate rationality with adulthood! If only… Efogoto December 17, 2021 at 1:58 am 2 years ago 3-2-0-2-3-2 With Leb and Pally riding in Chiphu’s pockets, we can only glimpse the collars of what are no doubt fabulous outfits, but what I took at first to be reproductions of the synth hats the elders wore are instead a purple top hat and what is either a bowler or a cap. Chiphu’s done well by them. Coyoty December 17, 2021 at 3:46 am 2 years ago Don’t be rational. There’s no point. Coyoty December 17, 2021 at 3:46 am 2 years ago This is the origin of the Joker. He sees how crazy the world he’s in is, while everyone else dismisses all the craziness, and he can’t or won’t unsee it. I hope Chiphu is more positive about it. Rikard December 17, 2021 at 8:51 am 2 years ago “Are those sentient edible robotic mice in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?” comes to mind. M.A. December 17, 2021 at 4:27 pm 2 years ago I’ve been young and I’ve been old; neither state makes any fraction’ rational sense. Don’t let ’em tell you any different. M.A. December 17, 2021 at 4:29 pm 2 years ago (Frackin’ not fraction. Stoopid auto-correct…) Efogoto December 18, 2021 at 3:15 am 2 years ago No, no … it works. “It makes no fraction of sense” is actually what I thought you meant. Dr. Moosen McMoose December 17, 2021 at 5:55 pm 2 years ago All those light years of distance away from Earth haven’t made the fanny pack any cooler. Pete Rogan December 17, 2021 at 8:23 pm 2 years ago I could use some earnest selfishness. The types I usually encounter come wrapped in a promotional campaign to make me think it’s all for ME. Which is patently ridiculous. Like all those spam messages telling me I’m a beneficiary of some corpse in Africa with my last name… and I’m BCC’d. Just once I’d like to see a note from one of these bagmen saying, “I’m a miserable Nigerian would-be thief, but if you send me twenty dollars every week for nothing, I’ll be respectable.” I wouldn’t pay them for that either, but it WOULD be refreshing. someone December 18, 2021 at 12:24 pm 2 years ago Nice to see the two mousen ones are now equipped with dapper little hats! TheWreck December 18, 2021 at 12:53 pm 2 years ago Looks like a couple of mice have decided to watch Their Heroes go off to Adventure! Efogoto December 18, 2021 at 4:03 pm 2 years ago “Bon voyage! Don’t forget to write!” damon December 20, 2021 at 1:24 pm 2 years ago “Tit-mouse” is a horrible, insensitive joke. Demarquis December 20, 2021 at 8:06 pm 2 years ago Personally, I would be more likely to take them along if I thought their selfishness wasn’t earnest. Zero December 21, 2021 at 1:07 am 2 years ago That’s kind of the joke. Normally, you want people who want to help you instead of people with ulterior motives. The mice, banking on that, lied. In this case, they aren’t likely to be useful to Aitana and might get killed trying to be. If their goal really was to help her, allowing them to go is a bad idea of dubious value. If they have their own reasons to go, though, that’s just not her business as long as they aren’t working against her. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
