I didn’t even get to the part where this plan includes a signing gorilla.
Oh god you have me laughing so hard here….
Panel 7: “Don’t leave my hangin’, Zebulon, bro!”
I was always so confused by that episode.
Thank you for clearing it up.
Okay, that’s hilarious. Brilliant strip.
Suddenly it all makes sense!
The title of the episode kind of bugged me, since the ape is really the star of this episode, but on re-reading Blake’s poem I see that there are some lines there that are sort of relevant to the alien abductee animals in this episode, notably “In what distant deeps or skies / Burnt the fire of thine eyes?”
Nowadays the line makes me think of Watchmen, since Alan Moore used it as the title of the chapter where Rorschach gets psychoanalyzed. I kept waiting for invisible pregnant Rorschach to show up.
(Ah, but if he was invisible…)
Genius, pure genius! … *snerk* Bwahahaha!
See, I said years ago that all the alien abduction stuff could be explained by aline Frat parties…
Yes, the Strugatsky’s explored this idea decades ago in their classic novella “Roadside Kegger.”
This is the best one yet! LOL!
This really was a dark chapter in the show’s history.
(And by “dark” I mean “butt-silly”.
I watched the next episode last night and, man, does that episode have a lot of moving parts that don’t quite match up.
With that said, I am looking forward to Shaenon’s treatment of OLD PERSON MAKEUP (unless she takes a different approach to it).
…I’m going to have to watch this one now, huh? I’ve been holding out on watching these again, because you were doing the summaries, but this is a complete I don’t even and now I have no choice.
Absolutely your BEST strip yet! Bravo! =)
Re-reading this, my favorite part is panel 7 where Grey #1 is waiting for a fistbump.
Hahaha, I love alien dude munching on what looks like ribs in Panel #1. One of the best yet, but I’m glad I don’t have to choose because I say that with every new comic.
No, it’s a piece of pie. Brilliant reference to Jose Chung’s From Outer Space.
I like how the other aliens go along with the idea kind of reluctantly, but in the end they love it.
Oh my god that was hilarious!
