But if Absinthe is alone in the manor, who is 'Nique planning to kick in the fork?

Just general preparedness for the journey there, perhaps?

He technique is lacking, she's more likely to hit shaft or thigh with kicks like that. The trick isn't to try to hit the nutsack with the tip of the shoe but to bring the foot up between the legs so that the broader top of the foot slams up and into the testicles. The same tactic applies to cunt-punting.

I'd draw a diagram but I'm terrible at art.

It looks to me like it's getting dark there, so I'd say preparedness for the journey.

It looks as though that's what the left & right* kicks are going for, but yeah: That straight kick in the middle seems more aimed for the lower gut. Which would still work as a method of self defense, I suppose.

*technically, that looks like a knee to the crotch, but close enough

I would assume that if you are within walking distance of the factory/home of the devil, the chance of there being some unsavory characters along the way is very high. Better to be prepared.

At the height that she's kicking, she'd be sticking her foot and knee right in poor ol' Slick's forehead. Squig too.

It's more just like a default "Things to be packing if you're going somewhere after dark" list than anything particularly focussed on dangers/threats/hazards that might line the route to Big D's mansion. I'd presume the latter would involve some mention of holy water to deal with potential devil-bullies or similar. This is just 'Nique getting ready to go in a normal fashion rather than with attention given to this particular journey. I do a very similar check-that-I-have-everything-I-need-to-at-least-get-back-home-or-deal-with-emergencies routine before going out (though I neither carry Kreeptonite nor practice my groin-kicks).

In other news, the "And I would walk 500 miles" thing is just adorable. Squee!

Ah, of course you are right. I see the point the author is making now. The same point made in this earlier strip:

In Panel One, I thought, for just a moment, that she was e-mailing directions to other people. Caught on too quickly to have much fun speculating about who said people might be, though. Oh well.

***

Aside from the fact that she visited Stately Devil Manor with Abby not long ago and thus, technically, knows how to reach it from wherever she went (straight home?) after she left on that occasion, Monique used to stroll past the place as a matter of course, as if it was, you know, just there, no big deal...

That strip you posted appears to be during the day, so that's different from night time excursions.

I think this is just a continuity error.

Thanks for finding this strip, because it was exactly what I thought of when I read today's strip. I don't only do a routine similar to this walking out of my house, but from every place/car I leave. Not just for the reasons you think, it has had the convenient side of effect of not locking my keys in my car. xD



@Ronald: And that's one of my favorites xD That and "Beauty!"

Since there are no movement lines in panel 3 we can only make guesses. Going left to right...

Kick 1: Could be a pendulum-kick, a knee-snap kick, or a straight kick. The toes are pointed straight upwards meaning that the point of contact either has to be the toes or the ankle for the first two. The toes are prone to missing the target and the ankle is a weakpoint in the leg you don't want to apply too much force to. It's like punching by making contact with your wrists, it's just asking for problems. Trying to straight-kick the testicles is very difficult since the penis (and potentially the thighs) are in the way. There's also nothing to smoosh them against, like a hard pelvic bone.

Kick 2: Kick 1 from a slightly different angle with Monique aiming for an imaginary target more to her side than right in front of her. Everything above applies here.

Kick 3: She's bending her knee for what looks like a straight kick. This is not very good at hitting testicles, as stated before. This is the kind of kick one uses to break down doors in action movies, not destroy a set of testicles.

If Monique wants to practice ball-kicks she should rig up one of those old TEST YOUR STRENGTH machines with a dummy. If she can kick the dummy in the balls hard enough to make its head ring the bell she wins a prize!

You might have a brilliant career ahead of you as an anatomist. Or at least a urologist.

It's what I consider an example of "Fun 'Nique" and notice that it has nothing at all to do with sex. As in the "Beauty!" strip, she exhibits a childlike sense of wonder. She's perky.

Not that all of "Fun 'Nique"'s fun-ness was quite so innocent, of course.


http://sinfest.net/view.php?date=2006-05-08

This strip struck me as memorable less because of 'Nique's performance than because of it's part of the "Craving" sequence, which features Doesn't Like Porn Woman, one of the few Anonymous Sinfest Women(c), if not the only one, who has ever appeared in so many strips in a row.

AFAIK all of the other, mm, "Female Extras," I guess we could call them, who have appeared in that many strips in a row have names: Amber, Candy, Ginger, Marla.

Now, see, if 'Nique had been e-mailing other people to come to Stately Devil Manor with her, they could've been some of the Female Extras from times gone by. Shrug.

but clearly the devil has moved from _this_ manor - his current place has a wall, and much larger grounds.
