I want one of those "real" drones. Like, a little thing that I could put on the shelf and it would say drone catch phrases when I pushed the top.

Ok, i'll be happy if it just says 'Buttocks'

Did you.. did you just pitch Tat the idea for making a real spybot buttocks drone?

You DID!

And I could see that happening, and I'd be tempted, cause the idea of pressing a button on a little spybot that yells "BUTTOCKS" every time you push it downright hilarious.

Oh man, if Tat want's merch ideas I've got no shortage of him.

Part of me (the artistic, moral, well-meaning part) understands Tat not having merchandise (ala Watterson).

But part of me (ok most of me) is all rabid fanboy that would furnish (or at least accent) large portions of their house with Sinfest related swag.

It needs motion detectors and a slight time delay so the person is just past the little drone when it busts out with "Buttocks!"

Also, I find the awe on the Devil's face weirdly sweet... Confused

So, the Reality Zone got really really big when we weren't looking? It wasn't tedious enough when it was just a few square yards around a tree?

If that's supposed to be "Paradise," well, we know that wasn't always in the Reality Zone, since:

Hard to believe it's been over a year since Li'l E's personality change (a few strips later)...and most of the other characters still haven't noticed.

***

On a separate note, it's been over nine months since that most enigmatic of Devil Girls, Mint, appeared:

Maybe she'll return for this spring.

Forests? Trees? Clean water? What reality is this!?

I don't think it's really Paradise. The Devil just stopped to appreciate the beauty that reality represents. Have in mind, Tat has only drawn these kind of landscapes either at Paradise or in the reality zone. And the Devil can't enter either of these places. This kind of beauty is foreigner to him.

However, while I know that it isn't what Tat intended, I do like to interpret this as being both reality and the Paradise. After all, it's hard to imagine a Paradise that's better than our great, complex and wonderful planet Earth. Don't you think so?

That scene reminds me of spot where Big D, Lil E and Lil E's mom were picnicking in that Sunday strip.

Maybe it's what Paradise looks like as viewed from the Reality Zone?

As I've wondered before, if the characters consider the Reality Zone as different from their existence, what do they think their existence consists of? They don't usually seem to be aware that they're in a comic strip, and when fiction is your reality then Reality itself can only be a fiction. OSLT.

I've often thought that one of Seymour's early quotes (from his very second appearance) might look good on a t-shirt:

"Repent, You Filthy Bastard! God Is Watching!"

This Reality Zone segment cannot be Paradise, because there are no unicorns in existence, unless we count narwhals. But that would just be ridiculous.

I totally want a keychain of it. If they couldn't be mass produced, I could model one myself.

Oh man, the Reality Zone sure struck a nerve, huh?

I'm pretty sure it was never just a few square yards around a tree. I always took it as a border, a boundary of sorts.
