You’re only interested in me for my body!” Coyoty January 3, 2022 at 1:27 am 5 months ago Apparently Darnit hasn’t developed methods of protection. Or they’re taboo if they have. Bauke January 3, 2022 at 4:24 am 5 months ago That would have to be full body condoms, I guess? Or a spacesuit. Efogoto January 3, 2022 at 2:51 am 5 months ago It only just now occurred to me that Chris might have identified which mouse is wearing the cap and which the top hat in past strip’s audio, so I went back for a listen. In the audio for Emergency Escape Shuttle Pod the cap wearing mouse is identified as Pally and the top hat is worn by Leb, but the audio for Welcome Aboard identified the top hat wearing mouse as Pally. I feel the matter is not settled. 2-2-2-0-0-1 someone January 3, 2022 at 4:35 am 5 months ago I’m not afraid of gelatinous aliens, I have defeated the Rigelatins before in a video game. Mo January 3, 2022 at 6:24 am 5 months ago Chiphu, if you don’t know if a gelatinous alien is acidic or alkaline it is much better to go with corrosive than acidic. Don’t assume their pH. Efogoto January 3, 2022 at 2:00 pm 5 months ago The darnitawl is Alkyine – Al Kaline was a Tiger. 😀 Flyswatter January 3, 2022 at 7:33 am 5 months ago I’ve been absorbed by an acidic relationship before. Gelatin was involved a couple of times too now that I think about it. rws January 3, 2022 at 3:31 pm 5 months ago So did Ghunzk know the consequences? Did he agree? 0z79 January 3, 2022 at 9:16 pm 5 months ago I just had the most unsettling thought about Alkyine’s color.. Other Darnitawls are blue, she’s green. What if the green’s from the blood of that one alien…? Literally everyone can tell, at a glance, that she’s ingested a living being. Out of love. She is literally stained with the life’s blood of her lover. …or I could be way off, but still. Very wicked. Christopher Baldwin January 3, 2022 at 9:59 pm 5 months ago @0z79, I love this idea, really brilliant. Currently alkyine is the same color as everyone else, a blue color, but the chairs on the ship are yellow, which change Alkyine to green. Pete Rogan January 3, 2022 at 10:17 pm 5 months ago Actually, I was temporarily absorbed in a non-alien’s gelatinous shroud. But I managed to work myself free before digestion. Not without leaving a payload of my own behind, though. She might have preferred to be digested herself after that, I guess. Such was not my intention. But that was in another country far away, and if the girl is not dead, her professional qualifications are. irisclara January 4, 2022 at 1:38 am 5 months ago Strong “Song For Lya” vibes here. Good luck, Chiphu. Chaza January 4, 2022 at 3:48 pm 5 months ago Could Chiphu on wearing some kind of body-Condom get Absorbed and the two become the one being? I am thinking Children of Dune esque where the sandworm and the person become one. Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. January 4, 2022 at 6:18 pm 5 months ago To the tune of “Take the Money and Run”: ? Oo oo, gelatinous love! ? Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. January 4, 2022 at 6:19 pm 5 months ago PS: those question marks are supposed to be musical notes.
