I tried a handful of different directions for this one – going off on the idea that herbivores would totally eat their own if they were made of tofu, the victim dinosaur criticizing his attacker for eating his own flesh and blood with the attacker countering that this particular idiom did nothing but make him hungrier, etc. All of these ideas somehow seemed like too much of a stretch, even for talking dinosaurs, so I’m happy with what I ended up with, though I’m not completely convinced I shouldn’t have replaced “Can’t talk. Eating.” with “Can’t talk. Mouth full. You of all people should have noticed.”
MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: *Much laughter* Okay, this evening just got entirely too surreal.
(I should probably note that just as she finished reading the strip, my son entering the room in a pirate costume and asserted that he was now our captain.)
In other news, the 2011 Logan Awards just happened, and my song “The Ballad Of Dr. Stopp” won in the “Outstanding Original Comedy Song” category. You can check out the song below if you wish:
This one’s gonna be on the new Worm Quartet album, which should be out in December if all goes well.
See you good people later this week!
