TheWreck November 9, 2022 at 1:25 am 11 months ago It would be something if it turned out that the poltex *would* actually be effective! Muzhik November 9, 2022 at 1:40 am 11 months ago Mmmmm … Puceberry muffins … Jude November 9, 2022 at 1:43 am 11 months ago Are puceberries anything like planet Mozaxok’s pukeberries? Rikard November 9, 2022 at 2:55 am 11 months ago “Sometimes it’s hard in an organization when two members with power have different management styles.” That’d be marriage I guess. Christopher Baldwin November 9, 2022 at 9:02 am 11 months ago Hahahaha! 🙂 Scorpinac November 9, 2022 at 3:30 am 11 months ago Well, at least one of the little idiots managed t wake up and smell the coffee. Too bad the other two are still asleep. Coyoty November 9, 2022 at 3:37 am 11 months ago The humans will have both the monsters and the muffins for breakfast. someone November 9, 2022 at 4:28 am 11 months ago They don’t seem to be concerned at all by the burning wreckage next to their computer console. No one looking for an extinguisher. Bickering is more fun! This is fine. They’re okay with the events that are unfolding currently. Shen Hibiki November 9, 2022 at 5:59 am 11 months ago I mean, “Send them all at the same time” is at -least- a bit better than sending them one-by-one… Sean K. November 9, 2022 at 9:51 pm 11 months ago Unless the monsters end up fighting each other and ignoring the intended targets. Dennis November 9, 2022 at 1:44 pm 11 months ago That’s all fine and dandy until you discover who is allergic to puceberry. Pete Rogan November 9, 2022 at 5:39 pm 11 months ago Reminds me of my brother’s quasi-Ferengi Rule of Acquisition: “In confusion, there is profit.” Or was that “In panic, there is profit”? Doesn’t matter. Both are true. Entire books have been written about clashes of management styles taking down even mighty corporations. The first time John F. Smith told the GM Board of Directors they needed to emulate Toyota and reduce their overlapping brands, he got laughed out of the room. A few years later, he was named chairman and disposed of EDS and Hughes Aircraft, trying to keep the company afloat. Not his fault that didn’t work — GM would later ditch the entire Pontiac company and that still didn’t keep them from bankruptcy. I expect the Stribs here will stumble over their leadership differences until they either zap each other or get so caught up in squabbling they don’t notice they’re surrounded by the GOB with weapons leveled. There’s a price to be paid in being too self-absorbed. But immense satisfaction in making them realize that just before you pull the trigger. Efogoto November 9, 2022 at 8:33 pm 11 months ago My early recollection of someone saying “In confusion, there is profit.” is of Tony Curtis in Operation Petticoat. I’ve said it many times since. Pete Rogan November 13, 2022 at 7:53 pm 10 months ago You know, my brother’s a big fan of the movie. Probably his original source. It’s still right on the money. Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad November 9, 2022 at 6:50 pm 11 months ago He’s surprised that they’re trying to escape? There’s a thin line between arrogance and stupidity, and he’s straddling it. Tomn November 9, 2022 at 6:58 pm 11 months ago To be honest, while the overall point isn’t so bad the little purple guy was actually getting somewhere at least, so “none of them do anything” seems an odd conclusion. Though I suppose they only saw how that one ended and not how the fight was going before the door opened and Benny Hilled the lot. Night-Gaunt November 10, 2022 at 12:34 am 11 months ago These are the teenagers of the Stibs who thinks they know more than their adults. So, they literally took over the Strib civilization. So far only one of them has the brains to figure it out and not listened to. That’s about right for intelligence distribution. Who knows all the others that were wiped out by the coyote. Once you get past their technology it does seem easier to take them on. Even so none of the humans have any military training whatsoever. They are just about even. Dave November 13, 2022 at 11:55 am 10 months ago Something tells me those muffins would in fact be rather effective weapons… but since the Stribs don’t think of them that way, we’ll find out in some other, rather humorous, way.
