    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (281) 11/26/2014 Wednesday

    “Hey guys,” Alley starts to speak again,“I think we should …,” but stops when everyone around him is still and stiff. Caught in mid movement. Even the light is a wonky color.
    “What the deal…?” He questions when he feels a strange tickling in his broad feet. (His “spider sense” at work.) “Okay, come on not again.” He laments as he finds himself outside the conference room in the cargo hold with Bei Ze. How weird is a smiling giant white lion kind-of-thing wanting to talk?
    ∞"Alley time grows short. You must decide.“∞ Bei Ze asked him in a voice like an asthmatic tuba.
    ∞”I told you I’m busy, find someone else to do the job!“∞ Alley groused.He still wants to take down that mutant terrorist Jellyfist.
    ∞”All other candidates do not measure up, Alley, you are the best lower-order being for the job.“∞ Bei Ze told him.
    ∞”Well la-de-da, use the next best.“∞ Alley answered, ready to get back to his reality.
    Bei Ze’s expression turned into a kind of frown, at least a frown as one could find on a non-human face. Then he(?} said in tones like a dying pipe organ, ∞”If I must I shall. At least the next best candidate is enthused about the job. That might be enough.“∞ Said the now morose magical beast of Chinese myth.
    ∞”Say, who is the poor mook who takes my place?“∞ Alley asked the creature before it left him.
    ∞”Oh some human named Ebony/Ivory."∞ Bei Ze told him as it shimmered and vanished.
    “Who?” Alley says and everyone in the conference room stops talking, which had started again, and looks at him.Things are back to normal.
    ∞ Half-phase speech.
    Ebony/Ivory the 7th son of a 7th son of the Phoenix family of Red Hook, New York. His real name is Thomas Edison Phoenix. He has an infamous brother named Simon Bolivar Phoenix who was incarcerated in the maximum security Cryo-prison in California in 1996.(See “The Demolition Man” to find out what happened to Simon Phoenix.) Like all the Phoenix children he has very dark skin, but blond hair and two blue eyes. Brother Simon has blond hair and one blue and one brown eye. Dichromatic expression is in his family.

    I was speaking of the others talking about “cheating” by the Glarbs. I was amazed at how naive they are.

    Didn’t come across that way; you used the word “I”, inferring your own point of view which left me puzzled as you are up on the story as the rest of us who have been with it both times around.

    I like the music reference/comparisons. Now ya got me wondering what an “asthmatic tuba” sounds like.

    If the accomplice assumes Stogie is going to rub him out, we can assume our bad guy is a real Bad Guy

    Oop’s going to get his chance at head cracking yet

    Morning, Oopsters.

    Anyone care to guess what all has happened in this strip since Monday? Come on, now, anyone? Who wants to guess first?

    Larry’s “Oop” Story – Wednesday 11/26/14

    A rectangular wooden crate is brought to Gritzel.
    Two guards are carrying Alley’s limp body over to Gritzel as well.
    “Put him in it and nail it shut.”
    When Ooola and friends see what they’re doing she screams hysterically, “Nooooo! You can’t! Pleeeease…No!”

    But her screams of protest cannot be heard above the roaring crowd, as Alley is placed in the crate and the cover is closed. Gritzel has two guards already starting to dig the grave.

    “Noooo!!” wails Ooola “You can’t!!”
    She tries to leave her area and rush up to the front, but the guard pushes her back.
    Ooola backs up and with all of her might rushes at the guard, who already has his collar remote out and is pointing it at her. Ooola never hesitates, but before she can reach him he’s already pressed the button and down she goes. There is nothing any of them can do, but watch their friend be buried.

    “Wait,” Gritzel says as he opens the crate, “Take his collar off first, Jeffrey. We can use it again.”
    Jeffrey positions the collar-removing tool and starts to take it off. He’s having trouble and wrenches it and the collar bends a little.
    “Letz him diez with hiz collarz on, “ says Torka. “I wantz him t’ be a slavz in hiz death. “
    “Fine,” says Gritzel, “It’s already ruined anyway.”
    “Herez ya go slavz. So much for yer wepon. Sweet dreemz,” Torka drops Alley’s axe into his coffin at his feet.
    They close the cover and nail it shut.

    The hole is now dug. Ten feet deep is the way the Glarbs do it.
    They lower the coffin into the grave to the roar of the crowd, and the screams of protest from the few there who love Alley.

    The deathbed containing our hero finally comes to rest gently at the bottom of the ten foot grave.
    They begin covering the coffin and filling the hole with dirt.
    “Nooo, nooo, nooo, you can’t!!!” cries Ooola.
    But they can and they do.

    What you said, Gweedo. Somehow I can just hear that “asthmatic tuba”. Fun.
