Ha-ha! I didn’t believe them for a minute. Did you?
On the other hand, when Larry first met everyone, there was another roommate:
I wonder what ever happened to him?
They’re such kidders. Well, they did live together for a long time. And they were in a band together. Maybe someday we’ll see them perform.
Charlie a “Tall Tale” after my own heart.
Being an ‘Evil Git’ and having an accent which is easily mistaken as Scottish (+) I have told someone (*) to ask for Haggis legs seeing as they are the best bits for roasting.
(+ I do a very passable Scottish accent anyhow)
(* a very gullible American Lady. Sometimes you Yanks can be so easily conned, it should be illegal , but it’s way too much fun.)
As a confirmed Anglophile, I can tell you that I’d buy any story told me in an accent like that.
Left handed wrench (or spanner), bacon stretcher…any of the imaginary things we sent Tenderfoots to get from neighboring camps in Boy Scouts.
Or a left-handed smoke shifter. We actually had a new Scout return with one…some Scoutmaster at another troop cobbled something together with styrofoam cups, string and sticks and gave it to the Scout. Funny as hell!
Oh gosh yes! I had forgotten about the “left handed smoke shifter.” We sent a few Tenderfoots out for one of those.
Totally something my college crowd would have pulled!
They still gots it indeed…
They do. I wanted to show them all together, just riffing off one another, like in the old days.
I’d believe Eleanor would do just about anything to survive in the cold. I’d believe she’d not want to be alone with the deed, and would manage to sway others to ber her accomplices.
In short, I’d probably fall for it, just like the rest of the suckers. It’s a great setup and followthrough though, so who could blame them?
It’s having Eleanor along that really sells it.
I would have a hard time believing that Lyssa would do such a thing (Toivo, maybe). But with Eleanor around…
Eleanor is the lynchpin in this entire gag. I wouldn’t believe for one second any of them would do anything remotely resembling that, but with her added to the mix? Suddenly it seems plausible.
Come to think of it, she DOES want to become a vampire…
“Oh, Eleanor killed and ate a housemate? Any particular reason, or was she just in a bad mood?”
“It was snowing.”
Does she really want to become a vampire? Sure, that’s what Nelson, Toivo, Larry, and Anya think. But maybe there was another reason why she pushed Victoria through the discombobulationotron…
BTW, love the H-B flashback!
Owning a brewery would get my vote, too…
I still remember writing that line, over 35 years ago.
“What would make this nerd so attractive to these crazies that they’d let him be their roommate? Right. Beer.”
Hey now! I take offense at this!
Andy’s are delicious. We’re always to first to go during the tragic “bottle episodes”. So, cannibalism is a totally believable scenario. Pirates know more about these things than a bunch of silly landlubbers.
Hey, you should be flattered! He was obviously the tastiest looking roommate. Plus, I wanted to thank you for that wonderful cameo you did of me in “I, Mummy (I’m the stunningly handsome gentleman in one panel)!”
Yeah, the Hallow e’en Boulevard gang can joke about cannibalism, but Allen and Mancanilla have really been there. Good thing they’ve never been shipwrecked with Caliban. After Miranda and Lyssa, he’d be the last to go.
That takes “pulling a leg” to a whole new level. This reminds me of my high school friends, which might explain why we were thrown out of a government office once…
Oh? Do tell…
All I can say is: Take the hot sauce. It will help with the taste.
No Matter what (or who) is being served.
The gang still has it. Hehehehehe.
