    Umbrella guy couldn’t obtain any ricin.

    For any dumb-dumbs, that was a Georgi Markov reference.

    So if you want to kill a horse with a poisoned umbrella tip, sneak up on him from the very front.

    Obviously the work of Oswald Cobblepot!
    Sometimes I question the use of boldface in this comic. “A man”? Wow, I would’ve thought a woman or a child for sure.

    No way anyone died from mercury poisoning with just a stab from an umbrella. Maybe from the stab wound but not from mercury.

    Each segment of a tape worm has the sex organs needed to reproduce all by themselves.

    I don’t know Gary, could it have been some kind of needle in the end with mercury in it. Maybe I watch too much TV.

    It’s no wonder they’re called blinders. The horse can’t see while wearing them. :o)

    It’s time for the tapeworm to measure up and take responsibility for himself.

    you sent me to wikipedia since I did not know of Gerogi Markov, but I don’t think that’s any reason to insult me.

    Actually it wasn’t a reference to the assassination of Georgi Markov. The victimhere was “a man from Hanover Germany” who was killed by mercury poisoning in May of last year. Georgi Markov was a Bulgarian exile who was murdered in 1978.

    When I was about 10 I broke open a thermometer and played with the mercury. It was fun… I still have a decent IQ. (I am a retired computer analyst).

    Dimethyl mercury is the only mercury compound toxic enough to kill in such a small dose (about 2 drops), and the primary risk is from inhaling the vapors. Polonium or ricin is a more likely culprit.
