    Good morning, Oopsters . . .

    Guess Doowee thought of something after all.

    Not a bad recap.

    I kinda like it. :)

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(2) 5/9/2013 Sunday

    Panel One

    Alley waved Corinne and the injured Jinx away as their purple an yellow ship lifted off and flew away into the night to return to mount in Thailand. He was beat and he doesn’t recall where he left the 4X4 in the darkness. He will have to pay a penalty if he doesn’t. He does find the flash light but clips it to his military style belt he wears over his shorts and under the colorful Hawai’ian shirt he had purchased, now with grass stains and a little blood, plus his hat is gone too! He still has another five days to recover here. He has enough credit on the DOD “Iridium” card. Good anywhere Visa & Master card aren’t.

    Panel Two

    Doc Wonmug at his job at the secret Area 49 partially near and under Fort Mitchum is looking over the latest energy tests concerning their directed wormhole. After losing out on Earth 2 the only coordinates they had was for that monster besotted world ironically nick named “Land of Promise” from what the Short probes had brought them. Though the probes tended to last less than 10 hours before
    communications are lost.

    Panel Three

    Took several weeks for the base to recover from that attack. Strange and frightening it was, but Doc and many others were in the control room with the blast doors closed during the emergency and saw only what the cameras could pick up between the smoke and mist. Horrible things happened he doesn’t want to think about. The death toll was catastrophic.

    Panel Four

    He shudders to think what Alley Oop saw and fought but he needs his week’s vacation.
    Barton Short and his equally brilliant son Tom are two diminutive men who are rich both in ideas and wealth. Even have their own island near Alaska. Tom Short built robots that can fly and think after a fashion. After some funding problems he got them in to be used both in the field and in home and work environments. The first ones are shaped like large gage elbow pipes with a “face” and antenna. They can be armed as well. Been in use since 2005. (See “Annie.”)

    I think Oop did that when he and the Cardiff Giant were thrown in the pit way back when. However, the Cardiff Giant was about 3 feet taller than either of these two chumps.

    June 6, 2013, a day that will live in infamy (with thanks to Jay Leno).

    King Guz of Moo saId "As long as I’m the King and looking after the citizens of Moo, they don’t need any rights! "

    But how can Guz look after the citizens if he doesn’t listen to them?

    For instance, our President Obama, and his associates, listens to all of his citizens. All of the time !

    its best not to think too much when recycling old storylines…

    The pit is lessening in depth, is it?

    And it’s that kind of inconsistency that the Benders are noted for. I doubt if they have ever even read the Hamlin and Graue strips. Cardiff Giant? Duh! What’s that?

    Seiko, can we leave politics out of the comics? Some of us would appreciate a break from the incessant pounding from the right.

    Let’s at least stick to Moovian politics.

    At least King Guz does offer people the chance to emigrate. He may find things get a bit lonely when the tribe’s best warrior and the local poet bail and take many of the citizens with them.

    y’all should see the Marines get over the wall, thru the tires, under the barbed wire.

    Lawyers and children 1st.
    Still WIZ looks scrawney enough to be thrown out of the pit if he takes a running start.

    Good Morning Bender and all, So Doowee plans to escape
    the pit by standing on Wizers shoulders. Lets see..Doowee
    easily out weighs Wizer by at least 100 lbs and is maybe 20 years younger. It shows his real compassion for Wizer
    by suggesting this. Wizer’s got it right, Doowee is crazy. Not crazy crazy but crazy for power. Guz in recap is slipping towards being a despot. Moovians have always had basic
    rights but now Guz is saying they don’t need any rights. There is danger ahead.

    Carole changed the dimensions of the pit because it gave her a way to get them out of the pit. She’s had plenty of people in the pit before and they’ve never climbed on shoulders to get out.
