    Lunch!
    Sarah, meet your new production floor co-workers.
    Please don’t mind the locking of the door behind you.

    They are the egg men.

    I have a feeling we’re about to get Lizard Sex Ed 101…

    I’ve waited many years for this moment.

    Finally….Finally.

    So, there is a nursery after all, the lizards have their own “Lebensborn program”. Perhaps the source of the eggs they eat are unfertilized eggs from this nursery.
    Piotr is right, they do have an ace in the hole, The reptillians may be born the same way in the wild. Nearly fully mature and with instincts intact.
    Just one problem, that pesky thing called intellect. It may be a hindrance if the young ones start questioning the wisdom of their elders like so many generations before us.
    Instead of blindly following and taking orders form the elite.
    Perhaps they have an (almost) foolproof method of indoctrination.
    The only monkey wrench is self awareness and free will, we may see some unrest eventually. Maybe Chick was just a random mutation after all.
    More may be revealed, once we see the scale of their efforts.

    Lay, Baby, Lay, by Jenner
    To the tune of Cry, Baby, Cry by Lennon and McCartney

    Lay, baby, lay
    Live another day.
    You know we’ve got to eat something

    The king of Underbelly gave a welcome to the new arriving queen,
    Who turned up unannounced with her three pets, a cat, a mouse and a raccoon.

    Lay, baby, lay
    Live another day.
    You know we’ve got to eat something
    So lay, baby, lay.

    The cook was in the kitchen, making breakfast for the queen who came to stay.
    The queen was in the nursery, telling no-one of her plan to run away.

    Lay, baby, lay
    Live another day.
    You know we’ve got to eat something
    So lay, baby, lay.

    The cat was in the corner, sitting waiting for the cook to off his head
    For stopping him from punishing the little boy and thrashing him instead.

    Lay, baby, lay
    Live another day.
    You know we’ve got to eat something
    So lay, baby, lay.

    The tutor told the queen that ev’rybody there was sad and hungry too.
    He hoped that she would stay because a woman has to do what she can do

    Lay, baby, lay
    Live another day.
    You know we’ve got to eat something
    So lay, baby, lay.
    etc.

    Except for Chick, who’s not a Reptilian, we haven’t seen any young ones around. Besides, even with instincts, they would still lack memory and identity, and would have to be corralled and given an education—-not much different than how school works right now, come to think of it…

    Could it be that in the same way that people can mutate into something of greater or lesser mass, against the laws of physics, and mutants can heal rapidly, against the laws of biology, maybe egg-laying mutants can produce more biomass than they consume? That starving female lizards can still grow enough eggs to feed themselves and others, in some magical way?
    Endtown is a deadly serious story that adheres to The Law of Funny.

    Y’know, we don’t know that the eggs in question are lizard eggs…they could have a bunch of captive mutant chickens laying them. (Or any other bird.)

    Piotr hasn’t been comfortable explaining just about anything, for that matter. (It’s why I figured he wanted to escape)
    .
    From what I can tell, he had only one bright spot to show Sarah, and it blew up right as he walked in the door. And the stuff he showed her before, well, if Fearless Leader knew he was going to show that, why didn’t he pick someone other than Piotr to show it.
    .
    Piotr’s comments today have shaken my belief in his character. I had thought he was an independent thinker and, given the chance, he wanted to leave, as well.
    .
    But I guess he really has bought into this “unified identity” and “species war” stuff.
    .
    The only mystery now: Why has Sarah stuck around with him this long?

    Now comes the Soylent Green moment?

    This may not be a food source…..think nursery…..which is why Piotr is pitching Lizardtown to Sarah.
    To win the “Species War” you have to have numbers especially when all you have are “wooden” swords as Piotr said.

    @Jenner

    I realize you’re a doctor and would have to be more knowledgeable than I when it comes to biology, but is it really a law of biology that all mammals heal at the same rate? I had the impression that shorter lived species (like dogs and cats) healed faster. Mind you, I have never looked up data on this and could easily be dead wrong but do all mammals heal at the same rate?

    I do agree with the main thesis of your argument. I am somewhat uncomfortable with using the word Law when it comes to science but extreme changes of mass and size are against everything we’ve seen in science and if it can happen during mutation, then why not with egg laying or milk production? We could just say that physics works differently in the Neatherverse.
