    Good Morning!

    Well, THAT wasn’t hard for Alley to figure out.

    If only he had a bridge or something . . .

    A nice big tree should do for a bridge.

    those two guards must have been backed up by a whole regiment of troops to get that kind of moat done in the apparent time slot… clever

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 21 “Dead To Rites” (33) 2/5/2014 Wednesday

    Being Native American and having been off the Rez for so many years he still doesn’t like the idea of violating graves. Just what they were doing irked him so much that when Carl came to him he wanted to get involved. Working with Kolchak has shown him that the spirits are real and need to be heeded.

    He works his way to the abandoned funeral home to destroy the burial records. Only he’s too late one of those ominous blue vans is parked there. One of the balaclava men is watching with an MP-5 with integrated silencer. The other one must be inside. He goes around the back to see if he can get to it before he fails. He doesn’t want Deemer added to the list of Markesan, Griffin, Tesla, Mathers, Primble,Abednego Danner, and others. Also some living scientist named Dr. Emile Hamilton and brought in a Dr. Phorbus, some kind of geneticist. Something about “gathering the greatest minds” to use their genius to make Luaxana a big player on the world stage. He just might do it from what Kolchak has found out about most of these people.

    The Brown Cell Leader is ready for anything that might happen. Each van has installed neural flash weapons that can paralyze, by shunting the motor neural impulses to another part of the brain. They would have no memory of it being used. Just one of the miracle weapons that the Great Leader has had produced from his mining of the strange and barely known genius out there.
    Griffin was a prankish criminal now in their employ. No one can stop them now!

    From Thriller, The Prankster (Lois and Clark), a real super genius, Outer Limits “The 6th Finger.” The Avengers “From Venus with Love,” “The Gladiator,” from Lois and Clark who regenerated dead criminals, in Jonny Quest he resurrected then hybridized dinosaurs in “Peril of the Reptilian.”

    The guards were merely the toadies in charge. The Lemmian Peoples Collective did the work.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    In the old days this would not have been a problem. There was one time when Dinny and Alley couldn’t get across a gorge. Dinny just grabbed Alley with his tail and threw him across. Of course that left Alley alone on the other side, but Dinny caught up later.

    One wooded bucket of tar carried by 2 men and poured into a ditch across a road has suddenly become a tar river surrounding a forest. This is a magic cartoon.

    We only saw one bucket. They may have poured more than one. But do you really want a week or two of a pair of cavemen pouring tar? I kind of doubt it. The Benders purposely (and rightfully) left that out to leave to our imaginations so as to let the story move along (for once).

    So far, it looks like I may have called it regarding Alley, Dinny and the tar pit. They have stopped short without falling in. Now, will they get across in the manner I described yesterday?

    Plus, whoever dug the ditch must have been a good surveyor, too…it has to be level or the tar will just flow to the low points. And, wow, not only is the land perfectly level, the topsoil is really deep there…no rocks to slow down the excavation.

    If you go toward magic mtn from the san fernando valley there is a hiking area on the left with natural pools of tar.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop. The trench, or,in Alley’s mind a moat, is now wide at the path to the capitol. It must be much narrower at the edges as seen in the March 3 strip. Alley could travel to the edge of the trench but he doesn’t know how long the trench is . I like
    the idea of having Dinny throw Alley across,. Dinny can then
    wait , for the tar to cool, to cross

    Well, Tunk’s plan was to have Oop cross tar cree without Dinny anyway. So If Oop is tossed across and Dinny waits, then it would seem Tunk’s plan was successful. I’m betting Dinny can jump “Tar Creek”
    Or they could find a Big rock or 2 and have a couple stepping stones

    Seems to me since they didn’t cover it up it won’t go too far and he can go around.
