    Those of you wanting to know who else is in the room – happy now?

    A Slynderfell not able to rhyme
    Isn’t worth a thin-little dime.
    Don’t be snobbish prigs,
    give him his consarned cigs.

    “She only has a “hunch” that Sly isn’t human?”

    It’s not something she can promote to a “strong suspicion”, because “non-human alternatives” will get her committed.

    Straightjacket? Looks like a napkin.

    Poor Mrs. Topler! I feel your pain, dear do-gooder!
    But what I really want to know is, who are the two very distinctive gentlemen flanking you? Are they specific Korycatures, perhaps of specific commentators?


    As for Mr. Slynderfell’s cigs, I don’t really give a fig, one way or the other, but I would like to hear him rhyme again!

    Interesting that his eyes are still green/red; it seemed like that was a Flimm Effect..

    One of those patients resembles Mr. Mushpit, albeit a much younger version of the vacationing Allseer. Mrs. Topler has her work cut out for her in healing up Slynderfell, but Ol’ Boateyes may be one of the cases she never learned about in her training as a therapist.

    @Silversummer

    My first thought was that this was Rallester in human form.

    The only way Slynderfell could be “cured” is if he learned to lie when asked direct questions (same way kids “turn” into adults).

    Golly!I mentioned, yesterday that I was picturing Slyndie in a straitjacket and there he is, and it fits.

    @silversummer, you may be right about the dog thunder shirt…

    @Three Steps Over Japan

    I thought of Rallester in human form, too!

    But, he could just be a take off on Martini (played by Danny Devito), because I gave serious “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” vibes going on!

    I wonder if Nurse Ratched is lurking somewhere…

    Err, have, not gave. (Gotta take time to proof read before hitting ‘submit.’)

    Come to think of it, the guy also resembles Rallester. I wonder if he’ll talk about having nightmares of working at Slynderfell’s Ice Cream Calvacade with the Freezer Burn Management? Only Kory knows that, but it’s fun speculating about what could happen. I love this strip!

    I’m pretty sure those are characters from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. Love_LSoS is right. The one is Martini for sure.

    Slynderfell not Human? Egads how could she not tell. Is this a punishment dealt by the Mrs.

    Wow, he’s really far gone. Hate to say it, but I think he’s a little beyond you, Mrs. Topler. A hunch, eh? Remarkable what our punthetic little human bean minds can rationalize. “Oh, no, he couldn’t be descended from extraterrestrials, he’s just a little on the skinny side with an odd upbringing and a slight anomaly in his skin and eye chromosomes. Isn’t genetics amazing?”

    @brother box: If it is, I hope she comes to take him home once he’s more stable. I wouldn’t wish a straightjacket and group therapy even on a mad alien confectioner, no matter what goes in his ‘sweets’.

    Lead on, Kory

    @Cor Blymie: Ah, so you read those! I didn’t really mean 80, I just exaggerated a little (on my last post, not the calculations). Either way it’s a long time to teeter on the edge of a night like last October.
