Awe, poor Stinky! Come on Bud, he just wants to play!
Squids just wanna have fun!
Also: Can an anchor go doink? Lets find out.
Scientific progress certainly does.
“Boink”, not “doink”, that’s the sound of scientific progress. (According to Professors Calvin and Hobbes, at any rate) 😉
It’s a loud, low “doink” but a “doink” it is.
…well, unless it hit on his Cuddlebone (and does he even have one?) it couldn’t go ‘bonk’….
Heh..as dogs go, Stinky got bored, and doddled off with his toy..
Stinky needs to stay “anchored” in the here and now.
Stunning! I sea what you did there!
Aww. Poor Stinky. He got a boo-boo.
Bud’s awfully up-to-date on mid-20th-century history; clearly all those late nights in front of the TV paid off!
She might be more up to date than you think – she is after all aware of a number of things going on behind the scenes that aren’t in the general history books – immortal politicians come to mind …
We haven’t seen Bud out on a date since she was introduced…
well you colored that fast
Bud, Brandi, and Tina are all romance-less as of this reading. Not sure, haven’t caught up since, well a while ago.
…She just looked it up on the internet last strip…
Ok, Ornery side here! Ok so many jumps in one comic. So we now know its a relic and its paranormal? I thought it was a tree in a graveyard? And if she is in the middle of it… when did it start? I am with Yoda, your either doing it or not; there is no try.
Of course the nice part of me thinks it stands to reason that maybe its on the sub now… Maybe Stinky takes a shine to odd things with a paranormal glow! He did find Budd didn’t he… she?
I thought they wanted Shelly along so she could open the tree if needed?
So you see it’s not the tree but was supposed to be behind the gravestone imbedded in the tree.
Anyway this whole sub thing reminds me of the opening of a video game where a bunch of ruskies find an old sunk U-boat.
Correct. They also wanted her to go alone in case the artifact had unexpected effects on the GGGs. The same would go here. If there is anything aboard, Bud should not be the one to go in and look. At that point she should pay Shelly a poity visit and talk he into doing the exploration necessary. Not that she will want to. Fortunately there won’t be spiders inside. Though the ocean floor does have it’s own creepy crawlers. The distant ancestors of land spiders.
“…for men have drowned and crabs have eaten them…”
Just saying… that is a lot of epiphany for such a little island!
C’mon Stinky! Fetch the Holy Grail! Find the Grail, Boy!
Am I the only one who ever wondered what the Unholy Grail might look like? For a mythology rooted in dualism, most Christians don’t look very hard at their own folklore.
The Unholy Grail will look pretty much like the Holy Grail except it will have a Starbucks logo on it. Oh, and it’ll be a dribble chalice.
Where’d the sub go?
Did Stinky make off with it?
It’s off frame, to the right.
Next to Optimus Prime’s trailer. 😉
FTW! Made my day with that one! Thanks Greyryder!
it *could* just be behind his head.
He just brought the thing cuz it looked cool and he thought he would show off to Bud.
Now he is being asked about life, the universe and everything.
He kinda reminds me of a cat. Sure they will bring you a mousie but they will be distracted by a piece of string whilst you are asking them where they got the thing 😛
Octopodes are known for putting shiny things around their nests to attract mates…that sub is Freudian for ‘hung like a whale’…
Apparently, the sound of a squid like monster getting hit in the head by an anchor is “ah-Doy”.
Sounds like a sarcastic Shego. 😀
I’m more inclined to think that it’s squidish for “Oh @%*$!” Fill in the four letters any old way; I can think of several that would do. Or maybe it’s just “OW!”.
I’m of the opinion that the sub is in relatively good shape inside, having been scuttled, not sunk in action (“lost at sea” doesn’t always mean “sunk” in wartime). but if they had time to ‘transfer the flag’ almost certainly there is no information or phat l00t left onboard.
And hey Bud, would Stinky have understood your word baloons in panel 1 and 2? Just sayin’….
If the sub’s crew were fooling around with magic, there’s no telling what might have happened. They might still be in there. Alive, or at least undead…
And Bud can understand Stinky, it’s possible he/she can understand her. Understanding, and being interested, though, are two different things.
Fuah, an old Nazi-U-Boot-wreck standed somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle and than, there is a connection to the ancient Irish artifact? I am really looking forward to the finale now 😀
Love how Stinkys roach/sail-fin/dorasal went flat with the anchor-whomp!
I think panel 2 should read “led them here”.
That’s what Paul gets for drawing with a led pencil. 😛
In, perhaps, a Zeppelin?
Ah. So he didn’t lose the anchor.
I HATE missing a day of Wapsi! I go back and read yesterday’s, and forget I’m reading yesterday’s and start posting comments and then the “Forward” button is lit :S
Well, first things first. Go explore that creepy, old, sub for clues.
I found some rusty tinned beef, is that a clue?
That’s what I’ve been saying.
So Bud needs to find a Great Dane, a green van, and an Ascot.
It has to be a Great Dane? A Lesser Dane won’t do?
No – it has to be at least a Mediocre Dane.
When all is said and done, Hamlet was pretty mediocre…
P.S. …Paul, way to hire spies!! 😀
I like Stinky’s eyes in the final panel…
*looks at Stinky in the last panel*
Awwww, I want one!!! XD
It would seem that no matter how big you are, an anchor dropped on your head still hurts.
Cute expression. Reminds me of Monica when she bonked herself out with a bottle.
Speaking of our red-headed Latina, found some interesting speculation on whe redheadwebs that ties Atlantis to Celts to Vikings, and since it’s also speculated that Vikings made it to the Americas long before Spain … Well, Monica was awfully cute in that Viking get up.
All I’m sayin is: http://www.uboat.net/boats/u296.htm
