    Favorite flower? ...comma (still the same sentence), what about "favorite flora"?

    Regarding Zhon's question, you should have seen the look on his skull. Find me two people picking a lock, other than Haley.

    Here's one (dialogue in #605 and confirmed in #610).

    Not sure yet on the other.

    Since no one seized the OQ, I'll ask the follow-up to my own inquiry.
    Find me something that a known vilain would "heartily concur" with (according to the speaker, at least).

    Time for my rephrase then:

    Find me a sarcastic answer to someone's question, which had to immediately be modified due to a nitpick by a listener.

    Sarcasm at the end of this strip immediately modified (by one lesser) at the beginning of the next strip. I'd say that V's comments read quick enough to satisfy the "immediately" requirement.

    That's not an answer to a question, sarcastic or otherwise. Elan's sarcasm is to a dismissive instruction.

    "Don't you agree?" is a question. V is a listener.

    But elan doesn't modify his sarcastic reply based on V's response, his illusory Belkar just repeats it. Good effort, but not correct.

    Nope. Elf buddy becomes self buddy, and everything illusory Belkar says is controller by Elan. That's the joke, is that the reply is modified.

    ....Alright, I'll move on to trying for a different trivia then. My intent was Pixie dust, nitpicked into becoming Kobold dust.

    Your question Peelee.
    Edit: or, looks like an OQ at this point.

    Wow, we've really gone almost two weeks without a question. I don't want to let the thread die, so I'll throw out a quick one: Who's Jaemin?

    Find a piece of clothing that explicitly itches.
    There must be some sense of order - personal, political or dramatic - and if no one else is going to bring it to this world, I will.
