Gerald Ford was the finest unelected President a country ever had.

"omen pidgeon" sounds like "homing pidgeon", as in those birds that are trained to carry a message and return home. And omen pidgeon portends coming events. (Spider Robinson fans will know where I stole this from) Sorta like when magician Doug Henning had a dove poop on him at his wedding. When the...

On a related note, the Duchy of Fenwyck is a reference to The Mouse that Roared, right?

Considering that anyone with a pulse and an internet connection can add to a wiki, I wouldn't even be concerned about that.... More or less, anyone who would bother to try to trash someone on a wiki is more than likely a crackpot or a punky teenager... You know the old "Consider the source" bit. In...

I'll give him this, though. He could write whole scenes where Cerebus is hearing two voices in his head, and even though there's no visual distinction between the two voices you can always tell which is which.

One of the things that prevented me from reading any of Sim's essays was their enormous length. Ironically, that's also what put me off reading the essay about him. I was quite fascinated by Sim's cosmogeny (which you'll find in the beginning of the last collected Cerebus volume). Apparently the unw...

They say that wolves won't actually attack humans (ask the guy in my avatar). Not that I'm about to put that theory to the test, you understand. Admittedly an elf and a rac'conan might be a different matter, although there is of course at least one place where elves and wolves get along fine.

I'll give you good odds that Quentyn's stuck with the elf for a while. Why? Firstly because she's good for lots of convenient plot complications, and second because she's the only person in these parts who's likely to give him any useful information, willing or not.

Not unless he hits one of the crew. Hitting the ballon would only cause a slow leak, remember?

Re: Tin cans on horses...

... Has he been vaccuum packed for freshness? :lol: ... Oh, yeah, I'll bet he's "fresh" after spending all day in armour! The last panel reminded me of an illustration for Gene Wolfe's story "Straw" which iirc is about a group of medieval mercenaries in a deliberately anachronistic hot air balloon.

So which school of political theory does the phrase "stinking hippy shmucks" come from?! One of the things I really can't stand about politics is the way each side believes the other side holds the particular opinions it does JUST TO PISS THEM OFF.
