    Another great one. Maybe it's the child in me, but anything that mentions "Acme" is good in my book. ;D

    But who is Chuck Jones?

    *lol* That is excellent. Was Elan and Nale's father named Wile E.?

    Nice joke, while still outlining Nale's character flaws...

    Hmmm, those this mean Thog's going to be sacrified in one way or the other? Nale intends to kill him. It'll be the same thing: to get an oposite of Roy, another stupid fighter has to take the spot and he won't be much different from Thog, except that Thog will be a thousand times more funny.

    Thog like puppies. :D

    In one word:

    BWAH!

    In two words:

    Bloody brilliant.

    In three words...

    You get the point. (Hey, that's four!)

    The highlight was undoubtedly the blueprint at the end (although I thoroughly enjoyed the Pompey/Thog race 'discussion'). "With apologies to Chuck Jones" indeed- not! I think he'd appreciate your homage. Wile E. Coyote himself couldn't have come up with a better plan to get that stupid bird- I mean bard!

    *thinks about what he just said*

    Hey... nice one! ;D

    On another matter Thog is beginning remind me of Mungo from Blazing Saddles.

    Thanks Rich! Brings back memories.

    I'm just wondering how many of the younger members of GitP will get the reference. (Also..sorry..but seeing somebody reference Wile E. and Roadrunner in the same sentence with Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network made me shudder. Am I that old? Is that how our younger generation is getting such classical fare?)

    The only thing that could have possibly made that better was having Thog on a rocket-powered unicycle. IMHO one of the most hilarious Roadrunner's EVAAH!

    Well, I'm starting to really like Pompey.

    I just shudder to think how he's going to fit into the revised plan, though.

    That . . . was . . . funny. The best homage to the "Soo-per Genius" I've seen since Mallrats.

    You know, December 9th has been one of my least favorite days of the year, ever since 1980 when I learned on the morning news that one of the greatest artists of our time had fallen victim to a random, meaningless act of violence.

    Thanks, Giant, for making my day brighter.
    In MY day, we didn't have character generation programs. We didn't even have character sheets to photocopy. We had to use ordinary lined paper. And we LIKED it!!

    -What are the other 4 kinds of killing? I'm chaotic good, and I've got like, 7 favorite kinds of killing. 6 of them involve theme music.

    -How are they gonna make this plan work if the OotS is chained...hmm...Nale and Miko...OW STOPPIT! SORRY!

    -Nale can't be THAT smart. He's launchin' himself from a fricking catapult. Chuck Jones indeed. (Gets popcorn)

    -Thog on rocket skates makes me squeal with joy. In all likelihood, though, I hope he gets through unscathed.

    -On that note, does Thog have a "Cornholio Mode?" With that much raw sugar, even Stephen Hawking would start giggling about TP.

    -This plan'll work, it just needs some good sequencing and timing. Like Anvil first, Thog striking at 50 MPH, then Thog's body as a cushion for Nale's landing.

    -Who's gonna get the anvil 50 or so feet up? Sabine's not THAT strong. (The wizard's telekinesis?)

    -Ooh, it's snowing.

    Please allow me to step in and say that I absolutely loved this strip. I usually don't post in the threads about the comics because, in genera, all I have to say is "Funny. I love OotS, looking forward to the next one" which seems, to me anyway, as just redundant.

    But this required comment. This was brilliant, just brilliant. Nale as the perpetually snake-bit super genius is great, since, in a way, Elan is exactly the opposite in every way. Where Nale is smart and unlucky, Elan is , well, a little dim and lucky.

    Besides, paying homage to the greatest short cartoon director in animation history always polishes my buttons.
