Un-faust your eyes from your penny-dreadfuls and make mark upon your Almanac, for I am in agreeance this fortnight to Monkey Mcdermott unto his pec-uliar preference of breathing an oxygen-nitrogen mix

Hearken to your bounders and tally your novitous calendaric, for I fust accord with the Monkey Mcdermott in his penchant for the frequent con-sumption of unsalted water for sake of his health and Vigours

Lambast your Spermologers to partake of this ruptile acme of our momentarily ended calumny, as I confess the suitableness of Monkey Mcdermott predilection for bandying-about hindwards on two feet as a means of loco-motion

Diagramme this harvest, for tis quite tolutiloquent and without outre what that we would find Monkey Mcdermott unsuited to objurgation for his possessing of more than a tittynope of sense in our common-feature of the enjoyment of literacy

I'm fine with a mix of oxygen and any inert gas with between 0.27 and 0.34 grams of oxygen per litre at the desired pressure, so long as it is refreshed rapidly enough to keep carbon dioxide levels below 0.02 grams per litre and is free of other toxins.

I wouldn't want to breathe a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen that didn't meet these requirements, but I would be perfectly happy breathing a mixture of, say, oxygen and argon that did.

I was thinking we might talk about Ninja Theatre, but I guess not.

The fact that Monique's Ninja role is named "Yellowtail" used to make me wonder if Monique is supposed to be Asian (Tat has referred to himself as "yellow" any number of times (in those little upper-right-corner epigram things) so, you know, it's okay when he says it) but there's never been any other indication of that so, again, I guess not.

And why did the Robot Samurai have no counterpart in the mainstream Sinfestiverse? What was that all about?

BTW, if you search the archives for testicles, you get three strips.

well, both minique and monique both shared a heavily resemblance to the asian supergirl... so maybe that can be seen as an implication of her being asian?

Well, like I said, I used to wonder that. After all these years, if Tat intended for Monique to be Asian, I'm sure he'd have depicted in her situations dealing with anti-Asian prejudice just as he's depicted her in situations dealing with sexism. But he hasn't.

Also, we've seen Slick worry about whether or not he's a racist, a misogynist, and so on. Considering that he's spent most of the strip madly in love with Monique, if she was Asian, he'd have had an anxiety attack about whether or not his attraction to her is based on Asian stereotypes OSLT a long time ago.

Aside from out-of-continuity characters like "Geisha: Warrior Hoochie" ("I was...misguided." -- Tat), the only Asian women I right off remember appearing in the strip are an unnamed Devil Girl and "Lotus Blossom" the Muse.

And, depending on what a Muse is in this context, "Lotus Blossom" may be a supernatural being, not a human.

(Now, see, we've got pre-existing sets of female characters already waiting to receive names and personalities, what do we need more Fembots for? Oh well.)

Out of the many, many women toward whom Slick has made sexual advances over the years, I suppose a few of them might have been Asians, but even I can't remember all of them at once. Wink

I'm still thinking testicles is the way to go.
