Comic Discussion Thread - June 2014

Remember when your parents told you your dog got sent to a farm? This is that farm, except it's full of old monthly discussion threads.

Yeah. I wondered why he wouldn't have heard it in the first place.

Well before that page, I simply assumed Adisa & others didn't hear English. Why would they want to hear the language of the hated species?

It just make the whole whispering between Judy and McNinja even more hilarious now.

It's rare when a son doesn't take the father's last name. At this point, the monster is acknowledging that he's a Frankenstein, and referring to a person by his last name is a common practice. So calling him Frankenstein is not exactly wrong. If people referred to him as "Victor", then it would be appropriate.

If you want to get in technicalities, Victor essentially threw the monster away after being horrified by his creation, which would make the monster, at best, a bastard son, and bastards normally don't carry their father's names, plus the fact that neither Victor nor the monster himself nor anyone in the book ever reffered to the monster by "Frankenstein" in any moment might indicate that the monster never held the name as his own, but eh, this is getting too deep and irrelevant of a discussion.

Frankenstein castle is in southern Hesse, a wine-growing region with warm summers and mild winters bearing a loose correspondence to Highgarden or the Reach. Ergo if the monster has a bastard's surname, it should be Flowers.

All this quibbling about calling the monster Frankenstein. . . .

All of you do realize that horse left the barn a long time ago, 1931 to be exact, and it ran down the street across the countryside right through the next state into the harbor and ferried across the ocean into the next continent where at last count it has lapped 83 times. . . .

It's really hard when a movie as iconic as Frankenstein with an actor as great as Boris Karloff causes everyone to call the monster Frankenstein, to suddenly try to run against the tide and get everyone to call the monster Flowers, er, I mean the Flowers, er, I mean the monster, that's what I mean, the monster, the monster, the. . . Flowers? . . . :?

Now I'm thinking of a cute little skunk. . . .

And this comment just made a bit of dust fly in my eye for some reason. Why does nature always throw particulates into my face when I'm reminded of that movie?

Still, what the eff does Adisa think he's doing? "I had to fix her with someone else's body parts -- in fact, she needs three times as many heads and twice as many arms" makes absolutely no sense.

Right, but he has to have *some* kind of logic to all this -- even if it's crazy logic.

Calling it now. McNinja will have to fight this new creature. And then will only defeat it when it suffers a seizure. Go Chekov's Plot Point! (or whatever that's called).
