Any theories as to the genus of the drumstick on the spit?
“In the old movie Logan’s Run, citizens are exterminated as soon as they reach the age of 30.”
If it’s any consolation, it could be worse. The book had the age limit set at 21.
Whaaaaaaat? I saw that movie…. they rode the carousel and got reincarnated! Everybody said so! Now I gotta go back and rewatch it! And the TV show!
Not the book… it was too weird…
The book didn’t have any false promises of a new life and it wasn’t just one city, it was the whole world.
REJECT SLEEP! RUN
IF THERE ARE ENOUGH RUNNERS
THERE WON’T BE ENOUGH HOMERS.
THERE WON’T BE ENOUGH DS MEN
IT IS WRITTEN THAT THE LIFE
SPAN OF MAN IS THREE SCORE
YEARS AND TEN, SEVENTY YEARS!
DON’T SETTLE FOR TWENTY-ONE.
RUN! REJECT SLEEP!
Peter Ustinov was the cat lady, right?
He was the guy inexplicably living in the ruins of Congress with a lot of cats, yes. Inexplicable, as where did he come from then?
You should chase up the book, it’s a very tautly written piece of work with barely a wasted word, it’s very efficient. The fate of Washington D.C. in the book was … a bit different, putting it mildly.
There’s a great use of colour in this page by the way. Just generally, I also like how everything is placed and framed.
What you’re really saying is that I used too much color on this page, right? I guess I could go back and tone it down.
Well, no that’s not what I was trying to say at all!
So much for trying to play a compliment but you know what they say, no good deed goes unpunished.

Thanks for the compliment, Shan, and please forgive me for being a smartass fathead. I get compliments so infrequently, I don’t recognize them when I see them.
I’m an Australian, we live, eat and breathe sarcasm so don’t worry about it.
To be absolutely clear, I was being completely sincere about this page, though.
Via the Seine? Possible. Mysterious things are not unknown there. For example, every July a beach suddenly appears besides the Seine in Paris, to disappear as mysteriously again in September.
In the early 19th century, the Seine was basically an open sewer. The smell coming out of it was not so mysterious.
Why is everyone so surprised that naked cavemen come from Paris.
The surprise comes from them being they’re caveMEN. Naked caveWOMEN from Paris would be de rigueur.
Matters in this comic recall to my mind a novel by James P. Blaylock (in a convergent evolution sort of way) titled _The Digging Leviathan_, in which a substantial colony of human troglodytes live in the underground streams of Los Angeles County, USA.
 sewers, actually
I stole from maNy sources. Sadly, not that one. I’ll have to read it.
MINI-PROOF-READER AWARD Thanks, Shan.
I’ll be honest, I was totally gunning for one of those, hence the correction.
But of course is just a stock thing to have French speakers say “but of course” that’s use here must indicate that even these cavemen and the caveboy (who would probably best pick it up) are truly fluent in French.
mais bien sûr!
Yet better if my English had been decent, if not proper. :/
Your English is perfect, no worries there. I was just agreeing with you 😉
Thank you, but unfortunately far from perfect. At least two errors I caught when I reread it. It should have read:
It (removing repetition) is just a stock thing to have French speakers say “but of course.” Its (period and better pronoun) use here must indicate that even these cavemen and the caveboy (who would probably best pick it up) are truly fluent in French.
I thought the redundancy was for comedic effect (but of course)! The pronoun is a good catch, but trust me, it was quite understandable and better than many native speakers you see posting on the ‘net. Not that that is perhaps the best standard one might aspire to. 😉
Alas, though there are certainly native English speakers who are poor at the same, I am a native English speaker, which does make the error worse. Thank you though.
After making a point about these cavemen being obsessed with the difference between various pots and pans, I just now noticed that there is a distinct lack of any sauces being prepared. I mean if the are cavemen who speak french, don’t make them that barbaric! :p
Maybe the stove is just out of the frame, and they simply use the giant fire with roasting spit for those truly large drumsticks that won’t quite fit in the oven. Then again, for a drumstick that large, they’ll need a big kettle-full of sauce!
