    That is NOT one contented cow.

    It’s probably good for Linda to learn that she’s not the only one who’s unhappy about being a mutant.

    So Maude has a supply — and demand is revealed
    Perhaps “Maw the healer” could be a bit healed
    But Linda’s gut instincts are not tuned like Holly
    Will Linda be helpful? Or just cause more folly?

    My thoughts on the food items Maude and such make
    These things aren’t free — they cost food to make
    But they could still vary the local cuisine
    Like Holly’s cheese hoard — though we know where it’s been

    I think now it’s clear that her much-prized cheese
    Is a gift from friend Maude, one that was sure to please
    For some humans this wouldn’t be what they picked
    I had dinner with this man — and here, he was squicked

    Level_Head..?? was that made with milk that I think it was?

    I think that the two of them can heal each other. It looks like Linda is warming up to Maude. At least sympathying . Good, very good Aaron. Love you. Why don’t you put you and your shirt on the comment site? I think others would like it.
    Marry Boxing Day.
    Blessed Be

    I’m sure all mutants have conflicting feelings about their condition. Only with succeeding generations will anyone really feel ‘normal’. It’s been hard on all of them.

    Linda’s beginning to care about Maw and her feelings. You can see from the concerned look on her face. Yup, things are gonna be ok :)

    Has anyone mutated into a dung beetle?

    @Level_Head

    Making milk – input vs output. Neathery’s world obeys the laws of science. Except when it doesn’t. I can live with that.

    For that matter, has anyone mutated into any sort of insect, arachnid, crustacean, mollusk, or other invertebrate?

    Seriously, now Linda has been put in the position of having to comfort and nurture a gentle-hearted person she has upset. It may awaken something in her that had been long asleep. It may turn her away from egocentrism and rekindle her spark of compassion.
    Brilliant storytelling, Mister Neathery.

    Yes – There is a crab. There is a fish-headed shambling creature. There are also a fish and a worm in Neathery’s Endtown one-shot mini-comic, in which Walter the bear, Mayor of Entown, goes fishing. (Contact Aaron to negotiate getting hold of a copy of this. )

    First thought:
    It will take at least another generation before Endtowners are comfortable with that sort of thing.
    So start with the next generation.
    They have children there, so obviously they have babies, newborns, maternity wards, etc…. Maude should volunteer as a wet nurse/milk donor. Likewise if the chickens volunteered their eggs to help feed the youngest members of Endtown. After a few years, people would have acclimated to the concept— and the young would have never known it to be any other way.

    Umm, Linda, your oatmeal is getting cold..

    Everybody’s worried about where the milk came from, what about the oatmeal? From some six year old supply? How about sugar? From beans? They must have some headway in producing grains, etc. now. Hydroponics may produce some, surely not all things edible come from raids. They do need to be self sustaining to have any future.

    I’ll bet Aaron thinks “Why don’t these people just read and enjoy the strip, why do they ask so many questions?” We tend to over analyze everything. That’s the fun of it.
