The sound of my standard 4 panel layout... breaking. I'm not sure if I'm entirely happy with how it came out, but I'm tired and I need to make it to bed before it gets too late cuz... I'm leaving work early to go see the Matrix. Not super early. But early.

Anyway, this strip is taken verbatim from a conversation with Otto, the man who seems to inspire such macabre talk along with his other fascinating bits of talkity talk. It reminded me of my dad, who told me never to fight back against a mugger with a gun, but to go ahead and give knife attackers a try. Which contrasts with the advice given in the Great Santini (if a guy has a knife, he's pretty confident he can do something with it). Otto himself has a bunch of knives, of varying shapes and sizes. I don't.

Heh. "Mallow." I was considering having Bull say, "No one can mellow you, Bunny." But I think the look says it better.
Murder by Marshmallow...

The Stay Puff Marshmallow Man would be a pushover. Just cross the streams...

As for the Balrog, as coworker Andy pointed out, a marshmallow Balrog would be all charred from his own intense heat. If the dude could even stand up, I have no fear of his marshmallow whip.
