Did he make his own glasses? Impressive.
Raccoons eat left over food because it is there and the normal scavenging is light. Glasses? Oh please.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (606) 5/15/2019 Wednesday
On the monitor Bobbins sees what looks like a glow around the cargo and Bex! Then loses the picture. “Dang it to all get out. Now it’s hitt’n the fan I reckon….” He deduced as the bolts of orange energy concentrated on the Xibalba and seemed to be absorbed by the ship.
“Any change?” Ask Capt. Gugl.
“We were firing on target at full power, minimum spread. Isn’t the target gone?” Zergg asked.
Again with the silence. Zergg is perplexed at this.
The green light appears an Medusa’s board and they are in hyper space once again. She notes a right ward rotation this time to the superluminal conduit.
Back at the Haterak convoy, the captain is confused. That Terran ship is gone. Was it destroyed? No, no indication of debris or tell tail energy signatures of his forward guns.
All Capt Gugl sees is a small planetoid spinning away molten. The one behind that ship?
Suddenly weary he orders everyone back up to maximum headway to make up for this little stop. And he wishes he could wipe the automatic duty log. But all he can do is to show that they did all that was necessary and probably failed in destroying a simple Terran cargo ship. One that looked Peruvian from his listings. Called “Starbird” on the registry.
Haterakans from “Retief & the War Lords” created by John Keith Laumer.
Isn’t the younger Doc Wonmug still living in this basement apartment? How would he not know that the “sentient” (sic) raccoons continued to get smarter?
*5/15/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
As the day wanes into the early evening Alley is about to wake up when the glittering shards of the anomaly spin open and hang in the air like frozen jewels. Something comes through it, something dark and very fast. It lands on Alley for a moment then leaps away gone in barely an eye blink!
Alley awakens in pain. He yells it in fact so loud it seems to echo for just a bit. He looks down and finds the side of his khaki coat was torn by something big. And something so fast he could not have see its passing. He then notices the anomaly open and decides to take a quick look on the other side…
The Seventh Voyage: The Land of the Cyclopes (801 A.D.)
After the revelation Parker was anxious to get out even partially flying, using his wings to speed him on where there is enough room to do so. He had stayed away from the smaller passages built for 4-legged walking horned reptiles to get out via the spiral stairway.
Dr Cox’s drone was on its way first flying low so as to not hit the low ceilings where it was then when the spiral stairs were seen he flew up and turned the flying eye on its side to get out then did a steep climb into the first light of dawn to get every photon arriving on its solar wings!
The bird-man “Parker” was there soon after. He could hear the last peal of some clashing of metal like some huge door banging shut as he crawled through the narrow door then spread his wings fully and up he went. He took a bit to orientate himself then back to his trip to Baghdad to tell the Calif that Sinbad is on his way. Made prince by the Abbasid court.
Historian Dr Cox & with Doc Wonmug in the present.
“Are you what you eat?”
That’s the question on Doc’s mind.
And their coffee tastes like it was made by raccoons.
You cannot betray your nature.
The raccoon is quite the smarty-pants (without any pants).
Smart Raccoon: “It’s what we do!”
This Doc is pretty dumb to start with.
The raccoons intelligence may be growing and growing, but reading this comic, I feel I’m getting dumber and dumber.
Meanwhile, Alley and Oola are asking, "Excuse us… This discussion looks like it’s going to take some time; could someone please send us back to Moo while you hash this out?
They are Zombies Raccoons!:
But, in a greater philosophical construct…. isn’t a helluva lot of what we eat garbage anyhow? I mean seriously, some of the junk food we willingly consume….. kind of is garbage right away. :)
The raccoons are smarter than Dr. Wonmug? Based on this version of the character that means they only need to be as smart as the average 6th grader.
Reminds me of the mice in the “Hitchhiker’s Guide…” 42 anyone?
No, those mice were really smart !
Raccoons gotta raccoon.
In the wild, raccoons eat berries, other fruit, veggies, insects, worms, squirrels and other rodents, birds and carrion. If they are stuck near ‘civilization’, they will do what bears do, and eat garbage. People who keep raccoons as pets (not me!) can feed them kibble that is designed for them, but are encouraged to provide supplements. Like worms, esp. if still alive…
Do you think anyone told the Sayers / Lemon “brain trust” that wild raccoons are sentient, not just the one who wear lab coats and glasses?
