Moral of the story: Everyone slips on a banana peel, even if it takes a looooonnnnggg time…
This one nearly slipped by me.
I saw that coming – but slowly, slowly!
I have slipped on many things, and seen other people slip on many things, but a banana peel is not one of them. It never occurred to me to set one out and see who slips on it, though. At least a snail probably wouldn’t sue me if I did.
Snail will eat the banana peel. They eat everything else in my garden.
For a minute, I thought he was supposed to be Andy Horsehol creating the Velvet Underground & Nico album cover.
Yeah, yeah. Haste makes waste, but baste makes taste! (Okay, he’s not presently cooking the snail, but…)
ha ha Horace! love your mini lab stool tripod ;+)
I dont think the snail understood the gravity of the situation
5 more bananas and you have a full escargot dish for yourself there Horace…!
C’mon Horace, face it. You missed the action, and you’re gonna have to redo the entire experiment.
(It does mean you get to eat another banana, however)
Speed kills, Snail. If you had been doing a sane pace, that wouldn’t have happened.
Where’s the potassium draw play?
I thought the snail was gonna use the ramp to jump over a bus or something at first.
Today’s strip is very appeeling.
Snails have no bones but thousands of teeth.
A long setup with a quick payoff.
