    Brilliant, just loved it, finally a strip that made me giggle.
    So he gets to unleah the fury, and I get stuck with a wiener dog?

    sacrificing minions, is there anything it CAN'T solve?

    There is absolutely NO reason why Mr. Scruffy couldn't have survived.....

    "Hello? Mommy?"

    That would be just about the wrongest moment in this comic in months if not years.

    Alright, I'll normally smile a bit reading this comic, but the "Mommy?" line made me laugh out loud! O-Chul needs to somehow con MITD into giving him the entire bucket of stew, as goodly and lawfully as possible.

    I have got to be more careful when reading these at work.

    Tea over the keyboard... People thinking I'm weird* (or having a fit)...

    That last line really got me.

    Everything in that comic was awesome particuarly that last line. My only complaint is the inevitable barrage of MiTD alignment threads that you're sure to spawn with that =P.

    Very nice strip, I'm glad O'chuul's made a friend!

    The baby thing was slightly dark though...making it even better!

    Not one, but TWO laugh-out-loud moments in one strip!

    Is it wrong that baby-in-a-trashcan jokes don't bother me at all?

    I'm surprised O-chul hasnt convinced MitD to free him by now though. I mean, its obvious the MitD would do anything to help him.

    I love this strip. I also love the monster in the darkness. and O'Chul. and references to eating babies (especially the note about veal). I always think babies would taste like young pork, personally.

    I think my favorite lines either are "with one unfortunate exception" or "hello? mommy?"

    But how would it help? I mean, MitD knows it has to stay in the box...

    Interesting scene. Wonder why they put the monster right next to O though...

    Yeah, that's why boys don't let girls join their clubs.

    It doesn't seem to be willing/able to go against a direct order from Xykon - at least not one that it has the imagination to execute properly. Besides, he probably thinks Mr. Stiffly is having fun.

    The kid in the trash can is amazing.

    Just Rich's subtle way of reminding us that evil doesn't have to be some over the top thing where you eat live babies.

    No, it doesn't. The MitD wanted a Kid's Meal for the "toy surprise", and Xykon said it would have "real kids".
