#140 Hark

0140holiday12_smoke1.gifSo Eskimo didn’t so much disappear in a puff of smoke yesterday as she produced a puff of smoke which obscured her jumping up to cling to the pipes near the ceiling. I guess that’s reasonable… I guess.

I really made a dog’s breakfast of spelling “Chefelf.” After scanning I had to rearrange pretty much all of the letters after “CH.”

This seems like the end, doesn’t it? But there’s one more page tomorrow. After that, a break!

Jeria, Robbie, Krys, Phil and everyone return with bags of groceries.
JERIA: Hey, everybody! Come in here! It’s a miracle!
PHIL: Isn’t it wonderful? Jeria did it.
Robbie jumps on Lance’s back.
PHIL: She told a few people you were in trouble, and they scattered all over town collecting snack food.
JAMES GURLEY: Wow, Fritos and everything.
JERIA: Just a minute! Quiet! Now, this is from London. ‘Mandrake cables you need snacks. Stop. My office instructed to advance you 25,000 peanuts. Stop. Hee-haw and Merry Christmas, Mr. Peanut.’
CHEFELF (entering): Looks like I’m too late.
CHEFELF: Here’s to my captain and mate… the richest humans in town!
Mandrake starts playing the piano.
CAST (singing): Oh, we all came out to Montreux…
The cop rips up the warrant (?? she had a warrant?)
COP, CAST (singing): On the Lake Geneva shoreline…
CAST (singing): To make records with the Mobile, we didn’t have much time. Frank Zappa and the Mothers had the best place around, but some stupid with a flare gun…
SMOKE ON THE WATER from all of us at Lance & Eskimo.

    Move aside Charlie Brown and the Chipmunks, there’s a new Christmas classic in town. Vince Guaraldi, i love you man but Big Brother+Holding Company and Deep Purple are invincible.

    Those aren’t just eighth notes Mandrake is playing, their EIGHTH NOTES! With !’s (technically they should be filled in if they have flags on them :P I’ll chalk it up to artistic license).
    Even Satan can’t resist caroling out Smoke on the Water.

    I don’t know anything about music. I just draw what looks to me like musical notes. :(
