G. M. O. T.!
Talk about missing the point, Alley.
Ollie has basically called what you’ve done a misdemeanor.
The lemon appears contemplative today. ✨
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (793) 11/19/2019 Tuesday
“There is an anomaly following us.” Bex tells them.
“Where? How far? Is it alive?” Violet asks Bex in rapid fire questions.
“22 degrees relative to the planet’s magnetic field. Less than a meter. Unknown.” Bex promptly replied.
She immediately contacts Medusa and Tran who are watching the entire area from two levels. Their robotic guide is also tuned in, its visor-weapon has turned angry red again and started lumbering off in the direction Bex gave.
“Hey its right where Bex said…okay now its moving again and fast!” Tran said, excited.
“Roger Violet, its moving too far from the sensor posts and now fading back into the nearby forest.” Capt Medusa.
Everyone is listening to this as it happens. Gofrette and Ellie are alarmed. Though they still have a few more to set then they will run to the area now marked A-5.
“Ellie, that is near Lavinia’s place!” Gofrette said to the Formagog not too far away

“THE THEM AFFAIR”
The area NSP commander gave orders to the V-22 to fire upon anything that looks suspicious or a giant ant. They comply.
This version uses some muskrat and frog brains and neural tissue as part of its operating system. And they can choose from white phosphorous or armor piercing rounds. Both the pilot and copilot are searching looking for a target. The descriptions of the giant ants are frightening after seeing photographs from Montana & Wyoming.
The odd balls of light are around too, they eventually ignore them to get on with the job at hand.
Back at the mobile UNCLE HQ Helen Kolchak has proven she is who she says she is though she is wearing pants and shoes with rubber soles and steel toes.
“What’s with the get up?” Alley asks curious. Ooola when they first met Doc Wonmug she had found some interesting clothes to wear, they called “manly clothes”. But he is just finding out how similar and yet different this American Empire is. She really looked good in that catsuit he got for her when he went hunting for a creature of the future. He got hunting duds for himself. That hunter Dravin was kind enough to help purchase them. and he helped him capture those two future animals.
Helen didn’t answer in hopes they will let it go. Cross dressing isn’t approved of in this country.
“I thought you are a news reporter, not some detective?” Alley asked.
“Really good reporters are detectives too agent Oop.” Helen replied smiling just a bit. Though she wants to get back to the action and take photos.
“I see. I wish my girl…female friend would agree with you.” Alley almost let slip about Ooola. Doc Wonmug is careful about who gets to know about his temporal physics work.
“I’d like to leave and get back to the action before its over.”
“I think we can arrange that Ms Kolchak. Please follow me.” Said Illya Kuryakin said as he walked to them.
Taken to court? What jurisdiction does your court has on people in our universe? These people only travelled in time in their own universe. It’s none of your concern what they do in their own universe. And since you abducted people from our court’s jurisdiction in our universe, you’re the one breaking laws of our courts, pal.
Before you go to court, you have to set a new record for breaking the law? That seems strange.
Alley’s hands have suddenly gotten bigger than his head. Too much time travel?
I’m agree with Oop.
Alley Oop – 20 years ago today.
Morning everyone! Today’s classic link is:
Well, Oop & Ooola were warned when Ollie & Eeena contacted them the first time. They were also issued a warning citation & told what would happen if they continued time traveling without a license.
Drawings…. interesting as usual.
Writing…. I am not overly familiar with the Ollie/Alley – Oooola/Eeeeena dynamic, so I cannot really comment on whether that is good or less than good regarding a time travel story. But, for me, I wish JAS would provide more tangible segues in her writing so that both long-time and relatively newer readers could comprehend and understand the action. To my manner of thinking, this would be a far better use of her writing skills than inserting a random/non-significant “gag” like what is shown today. The “trophy” gag does not relate in any meaningful way to the story, the “trophy” gag is not really humorous, and is not really helping us to understand a character better. So, for me, the “gag” is just wasted space and effort.
Since JAS seems to really like “gags” a lot …. I can recognize that will be a significant part of the future of this comic. But, I ask JAS to please consider my suggestion that when you must include a gag…. please have it either a) relate in a meaningful way to the story, b) have it be able to elicit at least a chuckle or grin, and/or c) have it help us understand a character better.
I’m reminded of a short story i read years ago, “An evening in HG’s Drawing room.” It starts with ‘the time traveller giving an expedition of his small model time machine disappearing. "well i’ll be damned" said the medical man suddenly there was a loud groaning as if the spirts were going to do just that and a bobbies police box appeared. out stepped a tall pop eyes man with a long scarf and a talking dog in glasses and a bow tie. The two then go into a long rant against the inventor referencing all sorts of pop culture time travelers (I’ve got an airliner full of wimps looking to crash (twilight zone) in here etc. and "You’re just lucky the nexus was too Small for the Nimitz (Final count down) “single worst case of time pollution ever!”the time traveller does the most sensible thing he can-he runs screaming into the night.
Should said ever has or ever will…
Take him on at tennis and you might get to do both .
Maybe this DOES end like the Seinfeld finale………
