I thought his platform was to rise from the underground and kick Topsider butts. Take action and take back what rightfully belongs to them. Now he states a six year surplus? Interesting…….
Is the six year food supply pork? Is the rabbit the real villain in this arc?
We’ll see if the “food” (Beans) are still there Monday!
If the rabbit isn’t behind the disappearances, then whoever is is might be trying to plant the idea that there’s a food shortage to justify the “harvest” of disappearing people.
Does the “six year stockpile” mean a surplus or a finite end of the food supply?
Is that information six years old?
As someone who used to work for a newspaper, I know… You can’t just sneak in stories/advertisements. There are protocols that must be followed to ensure that the production of each newspaper issue goes smoothly. I can’t believe that these stories are being snuck in without the proper authorization. Someone at the top of the pile is behind this, and I fear it won’t end with all the pigs disappearing. If this mystery is not solved soon, who knows which animal-type will be next. Someone may be in the mood for a rabbit stew…
Good luck getting Dottie to look into this! She’s having way too much fun posting stories about poor, innocent wolves getting clobbered by police to wonder how much food is really in the fridge.
Rabbit’s artwork is particularly Disney-esque, in my opinion. Of course, they don’t show Song of the South anymore, so it’s hard to compare.
Or, was I thinking Alice. As in Wonderland, not the Restaurant. But wait – that might be next: Rabbit stew in Alice’s Restaurant! (Just have to wait for it to come around on the guitar, now…)
Told you. Buttloads of food. Just doling it out REALLY slowly. 6 years’ worth, if only 3 people are doing the eating.
maybe the issue is that rabbit is factoring the milk and eggs that are now legal to consume.
Just because it’s legal now doesn’t mean that people are actually going to eat it, not to mention share what they produce when they can use it to feed themselves or their families.
@Dragoncat: It looks like the rabbit is stewing already…
It’s not just basics like beans. Security at least has a good supply of food people really want to eat, like steaks, and it’s not anyone anyone knows. Flask said the good stuff is one of the perks of the job.
Up until the Council was dissolved, though, everyone was under the impression that the food situation was dire enough that they had to send people outside to risk their lives finding more food. Was it all a lie to keep people under control? The Duchess and Marx could have arranged for enough food to last until it was safe to leave Endtown.
Marx said Jacob needed to be in control for the greater good. The crisis may not have been uncovered yet, and Jacob will be the one to find out what secrets have been kept from the people of Endtown. As the main source of information for the town, the newspaper is the best way to control the information everyone gets, and the information everyone doesn’t get.
Doesn’t sound like they are doing that well in an earlier strip:http://www.gocomics.com/endtown/2011/08/18
I don’t like to read that anonymous stuff unless I know who wrote it.
Sow-lent Green – - – It’s people of the porcine variety. I’m sure Charlton Heston never said it that way.

(Anyone else having trouble with the comment system. I can’t open some of the comments.)
Neil Wick, a commentator in Dick Tracy, came up with an extension that cures most comment problems. It works like this:
Neil Wick, commentator in Dick Tracy, came up with a decent temporary fix: Add ?comments=visible to the end of the URL string. Makes most of the problems go away.
Vis: gocomics.com/endtown becomes gocomics.com/endtown?comments=visible
Not obvious above, but there is no space or character between “?” and “comments=visible”
I got this fix for comments that don’t open from ChessPirate’s comment on “B.C.” Saturday, May 20, 2017.
1) copy this
2) Go to the U.R.L. in the comic’s address box and paste this without spaces directly at the end of the U.R.L. like this….
3) Either click the “search arrow” now in the address bar or press “Enter.”
The comic will refresh itself, and all the comments’ replies will be readable if clicked upon.
If using it on a past comic, just place ?comments=visible as above directly behind the date.
I couldn’t make the comments visible yesterday for a while…the problem seems to have gone away by itself. The constant having to sign in hasn’t changed much, though.
If that’s 6 years of beans, the smell should have reached the topsiders by now. Perhaps they need an alternate food source (and with the sensitivity of wolves noses, who wouldn’t get grumpy living in a bottled fart?).
