Ruddock isn’t seeking anything, but if some cheese or a mouse fell in front of his path, he wouldn’t mind, really.

      YOU try coming up with new aliens practically on a weekly basis without duplication. Almost daily, if you’re doing some kind of crowd scene. It can’t be easy.

      The One Eye on Top of the Head is a cool idea, although they’d have to keep their brain somewhere else to make room for a spherical eyeball. I visualize something that evolved in an environment were most predators flew. Those orange “clouds?”

      I also like how the older versions get jowly.

    “I am wisest of all the Greeks because that which I do not know, I do not think I know either.” So says Plato of what the Oracle told Socrates. Discerning readers will note this is an appositional refutation of the Dunning-Kruger effect, where stupid people believe they know more than anybody else because they can’t imagine anybody knowing more than they do. Socrates here states he knows his ignorance, leaving it to the listener to conclude that other people aren’t as smart or at least as intellectually honest.

    Werjimond here disposes of the chicanery and leaves Choan with a blunt assertion. Whether this is what Choan really came to hear is the question I suppose she’s going to have to answer for herself, the next strip or thereafter. Choan doesn’t seem to realize that she’s asking for somebody less wise. But I imagine that will come to her soon enough. For us, at least.

    What about a mouse made of cheese? I’m sure with this level of technology, it’s possible to make edible robot mice where all the plastic part are actually different types of cheeses.
