The punchline confused me because when Raz referred to it as “one of these babies” I thought he was saying that it was literally a baby. Because that’s what Raz would do.
He used the word “baby” as a figure of speech, but of course the subtext is he was also hinting at what’s actually in the capsule.
The “babies” thing is indeed very funny, but I feel the effect is somewhat lessened by it being literal-yet-not-100%-literal. Maybe the joke could be optimized by showing an actual baby skeleton instead of what looks like a more full-grown human?
LOL @ “Alphabetizing my party drugs”. That’s a clever joke, that.
what a interesting fresh way of “trow a virgin in the Vulcan” …
I thought .PNG supported animation better than the .GIF format?
They’re also bigger files – I’m going for low filesize and fast pageloads, plus I think the crappy .gif artifacts are kind of endearing. I spend a lot of time on tumblr and I’ve grown to love pixely gifs.
Hmm… I feel like the way you spelled out the joke for us in the last panel kinda ruined it. What fluffy said was on the right track. I would’ve liked something along the lines of:
Raz: “Every year we gotta drop one of THESE babies into it… [etc]”
Wally: “Wait, babies? There’s a BABY in here?”
Raz: “Who told you?! Er, I mean… no! Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous.”
I think it would’ve been perfect the way it was, minus the last line. Just end it with “Yeah, let’s go with THAT.”
Out of all the suggestions for dialog changes, yours is the best, luna.
Nice! I came
