    Yet another difficulty the Endtowners face. As if they didn’t have enough of them…

    Eggs…yeah, that’s a bit different.

    The “mutated” comment gives Linda surprise
    She’s switching reactions — just look at her eyes
    So far she’s not catching on Maw’s udder truth
    The milk is for young ones — but those eggs are youth!

    In the words of Archie Bunker, “Beef tongue? I don’t want nothing that’s been in a cow’s mouth. Edith, go scramble me some eggs.”

    It’s been a long time since Topsiders had real food, I suspect.

    Yup, let’s not eat the potential children!?! Or the thought of what could be potential children? Or what could be potential children if things were just a little different? We really haven’t gotten into how mutant children come about. Do chicken/human mutants hatch their young? If not, then in theory eggs wouldn’t really be so much different from maw’s milk. Wow, what an odd discussion. Thanks Aaron, my head hurts. :-)

    Only the female ones will give eggs or milk…

    There is no child birth without a male partner. A female alone just lays eggs. No babies. Am I the only farm girl around? The eggs are often eaten by their own hens.
    Protein is protein…. period. And that’s the truth!!!! :>)>

    Loved that show. Archie always gave you that “Did he really say that?” moment. It was one of those rare programs that come along and are a real game changer – not just for TV, but how we look at ourselves.

    I grew up on a small farm and had chickens…so, I agree with you entirely. However in Endtown, we’re not talking strictly chickens. The predominently human brain of the mutants may not see unfertilized eggs as being just so much protein. Look at all the problems we (USA) have with female rights over their own bodies and the ova they produce. There have been a few lawsuits over cryogenically stored eggs that would seem to indicate the human psyche sees them more as potential humans than simple unused reproductive material. There could be a social taboo here and Maw’s bean comment may bear that out. No side taken regarding that issue, just pointing out a storyline possibility.

    Nobody mutated into any plants because the virus most likely couldn’t penetrate the cell structure to pick up the DNA and have its descendant virus carry the plant DNA to humans. The plants were still destroyed by the Amesworth radiation because it was still organic.

    I’m basing the above note on my observation of the strip so far.

    Cows produce milk for calves. No calf (or hormones), no milk.

    @John Robillard

    This implies that there’s a little boy or girl mutant in Ma Hefner’s recent past. (If Linda is more intelligent than she acts, maybe she’ll figure that out.)

    These are cartoon animals in a cartoon world. They can be as realistic or as unbelievable as the storyteller wants. The only thing is the willing suspension of our disbelief, while the mechanics of the narrative take us through the scene to its satisfying end. So, in this cartoon story, a cow can give milk, whether she has a secret calf or not.
    Personally, I hope her late husband was a rabbit called Hugh. But I suppose it is not to be…
