    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(14) 8/28/2013 Wednesday


    Alley has to move carefully, but he isn’t sure who is the enemy here. If it is what he thinks it is he will have friends that are now enemies.

    His club of black wood is in his hand, switching between them as he goes. (He is ambidextrous.)

    Not too many torches along the corridor. Just a few at wide intervals and small, just giving a feeble flicker of yellow and red light in the darkness.

    After he gets his look he will save the prisoners who are fighting and get Dinny back with him. Then he’ll show these usurpers what Moo stands for.
    -
    Alley’s club is made out of very dense black wood from a regenerated prehistoric scale bark tree, perhaps a Sigillum. Given to him by the same university that built that FTL ship. Weighs in at 56 oz.

    Very few are strong enough to lift it up much less use it in combat.

    Yes, Oop will be lumbering around feeling stiff and growling with anger. Just like Boris Karloff did. Only the creature in the story didn’t act like that.

    The creature in the red will stop that. She’s
    on her way… :)

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Once again Carole has disappointed us two useless panels of wasted dialog.

    Y’know? I tried to be positive when this story started. I tried. I really did try.

    Hard to be positive when Oop is such a selfish crank. :\

    The big feet comment is a set up for Alley, when he does the ‘Frankenstien walk’.
    I like the artwork the last few days.

    And a fifth day focused on Oops wardrobe. Please quit Carole. Just go outside and find any random person to replace you. At this point I’m sure just about anyone could do a better job.

    Darn, I left out a word. I hate it when I do that. I meant to say, “Once again Carole has disappointed us with two useless panels of wasted dialog.”

    Now for a positive comment. – I’m positive that Carole needs to retire.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley Oop. Alley’s upset about the weight of the insulated boots.
    I’m wondering if he got the construction steel boots with special insulation Thee boots might weigh 10 lbs each.
    For a guy like Oop who hates to wear shoes or sandels,
    even when in the present, wearing the boots would be a real pain. The Benders are doing a wonderful job setting
    up Alley’s attitude for when Mary catches up with him and
    Doc. Unfortunately the whine is getting louder in the bleachers.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    His club weighs 56 oz? That’s 3.5 pounds, how can “very few” be strong enough to lift it? Can’t wait to hear your excuse for this.

    @davidf42

    …and you have not failed to disappoint us with multiple wasted whines.
